I was just thinking maybe the reason we didn't see many deer is because they left the area due to a lack of water in the stream(dried up)/swamp(even drier)anyone's thoughts????????????????????????????? confused.gifconfused.gifconfused.gifconfused.gifconfused.gifc63

I hunt by water along with the others that I hunt with.I think you can blame the lack of deer movemant this past weekend on the full moon and the warmer temps.The full moon to me is the worst time to hunt deer.I said to my wife last year that I wont hunt another one and yet I did and no deer movement.

I agree with Harvey Lee its a combination of lack of water Full moon and I also think that the does are not in estrus yet at least where we hunt. I also dont like the full moon hunt but it was probally the best full moon hunt I have erver had. I saw seven deer and shot three a 170lb 5 pointer a 120lbs doe and a nubbin buck passed on a spike opening morning and was busted buy a nice 8 pointer half hour earlier. Two guys in the party didnt see a thing in three days swampwas dried up and the other two missed one each .I was also hunting next to a beaver pond and a little creek that the beaver kept open.

      Interesting headline in the Virginia newspaper this morning. The Landing is being sued by past employees for not paying minimum wage, not paying overtime, and keeping up to 50% of the employees tips that were received via credit card.

      Drove to Ely yesterday and there were some pockets of great color. I would definitely think next weekend would be worth the trip.

      I would say that we are about 1/4 into fall colors in this area.

      We've done OK out there this year. Nothing special, but better for us than last year. 

      Last time out, we found piles of fish in 60-70 feet. Caught a few, couldn't release them, and stopped fishing them.  Got a couple jig rapping shallower, got a few trolling, and got a few on spinners.  No one pattern got skunked, but nothing stood out, either.

      Sorry for the late response....I suspect not many folks are building skid houses these days. :)

      Our houses have steel skids.  One had wood, but we changed them out.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.
