2019 Season - What’d Ya See?

Short sit this morning but hey, I got out!  Hope to try sits this evening and tomorrow but I still have house projects to work on.

 

Got a few shots of adrenaline this morning so that was good!  Hearing, anticipating and actually seeing a couple was a nice start.  I assume they were a doe/fawn pair but couldn’t get a great look at em in brush.  Just passing by.

 

I was waiting on a buck anyway.  Fresh buck sign along this trail I was watching.

Went out Saturday morning. Couldn't get to my stands due to the monsoon season we are having, so I grabbed a chair and sat on the ground in some willows. Had a doe with a fawn come out shortly after shooting time. Then a small 1 year old buck. Then a bachelor group of 3 small 1 year old bucks. All the deer at one point were within 20 yards of me while sitting on the ground. Didn't kill anything but it was a good time.

After spending the past two nights catching up on yard work I figured a sit tonight was earned.  Plus the wind was just right enough for a spot I’ve been waiting to sit.

7 sightings tonight.  3 bucks, 1 doe and 3 I don’t knows.  The I don’t knows were on the other side of the creek and moving pretty quickly north, into the wind.  Didn’t seem any bigger than the others I saw.

 

The bucks were all basket 8’s, still inside the ears; the doe was probably a 1.5 year old too.  The bucks were 3/4 shed of velvet, some still hanging on.  The doe and one of the bucks were an easy 17 yard poke in my shooting lane.  I said I was going to take the first “adult” buck I saw this year but I guess I was kidding myself. I was enjoying the show too much.  All those deer will get shot around here in the gun season if seen and I’d have been happy with either the doe or the buck come December.  We’ll see if I regret passing.  I doubt it though.

Hmm, draw the bow or draw the phone?  Hmmm...  There are a couple dandies in the area so I think I’ll stick with the bow.

 

Management tag will be bought tomorrow.  I’d like to drop something by the end of the weekend.  Lofty goal maybe but they quit using the area once the leaves really drop so I should just git r done.

Last Saturday, my first sit I passed a young 10 point. Sunday night my son and I sat and saw 8 does and fawns. The fawns were in point blank shooting range but the caging all does just knew something wasn't right and hung back in the brush and slid away. We will be back this evening, and will get out this weekend as well.

Looks like I won’t git r dun in September like I hoped.  The 3 I don’t knows from Wednesday were spike, fork, six.  I’ve seen the same 6 bucks three times now.  Drew on the tall 8 but he wasn’t clear till 40 yards and I didn’t want to try that in the wind even though everything felt good.  

 

Another 8 magically appeared in the wide open at 20 yards while I was watching the little 6 below me.  The swirling wind gave me away to the little 6 and he trotted off a way.  The 8 kept looking at him and back under me to see what was up.  I couldn’t get drawn back on him before the 6 pulled him away.

 

Never thought I’d say it but I need more does. 😃

The spot has been drying up with the leaves falling.  Deer are moving later as they do.  I’ve enjoyed watching the deer on my sits but figured my deer hunts are already winding down.  I never did see a larger buck but heard the neighbor got one I’d been hoping for.

 

Tonight was the night to take one.  And I’m happy to have him.

      Checked three different weather sites on line. One said 1" and the other two said 1"-3" Hope it's what I found.
    • Borch
      Sounds like we're for another 6-10" based on the weather report.

      Thanks for the info. I am surprised at how different the ice is on different lakes right now. Looks like it will stay sketchy through this weekend, but a good deep freeze next week should even it out a lot. The forecast calls for negative temps M-W.

      Well done Bryan!

      Only one sack lunch?  tsk tsk...  I would challenge you to improve that! Frankly, my deershack looks like a buffet by the time I'm done--This year I had one thermos with soup, one with hot tea, 2 sodas, sandwich, apples, smoked whitefish, gobstoppers, crackers, sausage and baked pumpkin seeds (from the kids jack-o-lanterns).   (I think the deer that I get are probably wandering in, just wondering what smells so good!  😂  Conservation officer can't get me for "feeding" deer 'cuz the food I pile up is all in my stand...)   Part of the reason the kids like to sit in the stand with me is to eat dad's goodies!😁 Speaking of junkyard, there's a "stand" leading up to where I hunt that the dude put the front of a old dump truck cab on stilts.  Classy!  I seriously would've loved to see Red Green do an episode based on your idea!

      Donkeyhodey - I've always thought of going to a junk yard, grabbing a vehicle seat that is heated. put that in my nice stand and hook it up to a deep cycle battery. After a few hours, turn it on and relax on a heated swiveling reclining deer stand seat with arm rests. I'd probably wake up at 8 PM wondering what darn day it was.  Bigfatbert, -  that is my plan moving forward. Blinds in the sky. my only concern is their durability over time with inclement weather. How do you prepare for a early season heavy snow or high wind?

      It's LED, no heat coming off of them. 
    • leech~~
      Simple. 😉

      Does it get hot?  Just curious if it would cause any problems if it was touching the shell of a portable.    I have the Clam hub light and like it, but it's pricey for a light, and I'm always worried the cord will get ripped out of it.
