I'll let Jesse fill in the details as i'll be headed outa town on a week long deer hunt just after he heads back home.Any luck he should have something in the back of his truck he did'nt bring along

yea Dave and Jesse can hold it..lol

Harvey - - - I'll tell Jesse how much 1 cost so he better pass on all the big bucks if any and shoot a spike/forky they taste better.Student/cost for a mount plus the cost at the meat market ='s 1 weekend of no party for the school boy

Sure hope he's not bringing mouth wash (Crown Royal)along.Scare the deer away with that crap for weeks i'll have to move all my stands weeds will all be dead so i wont have any cover to hide in

Wow a guy that knows what the deer actual lbs are. ooo.gif

I'm going to set him up on a nice 8 pointer in the morning 135 class give or take a couple inches but he's a nice 1 to take outa the area.Looks like a 5 1/2 year old and were try'n to thin those eights out so the 10 point and bigger shows up down the road.We have way way to many 8's be nice to see more points on these big guys.

I told Jesse he can shoot what ever he wants but it sounds like he WILL hold out for a good 1 and shoot a doe to take home for meat.If the weather holds like it has been the past couple days i think he'll fill the buck tag in the morning and we'll work on a doe or 2 inanother area that need to be thinned out

Not me because thats still a nice doe.

Holy crap Jesse was 3 hours early today.

We scouted a couple areas saw several does/fawns.I took him back to a corn ladder stand and on the way down there Jesse says man i need to get my camera out to take pics of these big tracks.I looked over in his row of corn and yes indeed it was a dandy of a track.A lil ways down the corn field we ended up back on the fence line and guess who runs around the corner down the waterway where the corn ladder stand was set.Yup mr 8 pointer and he was hauilin azz.

So we went back to the truck and went about 200 yards over to a little woods where i have a stand set up.New scrape 10 yards from the stand and it was Freshly opened within the hour.Was a no brainer since it had just down poored an hour before that and all signs were covered up prior to that.

So Jesse wants to sit that stand in the morning but i think he visits that location in the evenings.I hope he proves me wrong

We got out the spot light to see what was going on after dark.We saw a few small 110-125 class bucks then we came across 4 bucks comming out of a small woods about 150 yards off the road.As we were watching them the last buck to exit the woods came out on a dead run head on into another buck.It was funny as hell.The buck that was already outr in the field just put his head down while the 1 on a dead run about went head over heals when they clashed antlers.He fled the area he must of figured he was about to get his azz kicked again by the buck twice his size.Was a good chuckle anyways

sat in the stand near the scrape this morning, i figured it would be a good place to start anyway. Well come 7:15 i had a little basket rack 8 pointer walk right by the stand and he just stopped right next to me. He was concentrating on something further ahead of him. Then all a sudden he just darts in the the woods. must have saw another decent buck ahead but he never showed himself.

At 9 we went out scouting around and walked down this woodline adjacent to a couple swams that were surrounded by corn. We found some scrapes along the cornline and as we eased our way to the woodline we came up upon some nice big rubs one some trees the diameter of a softball. Seem to be some pretty big and WIDE buck in this location. Followed his path and came upon a waterhole and a bunch of Fresh rubs and a scrape that he had just made this morning. Looks like he tares his way through there in the morning so thats where were goin to set up.

as for tonight back to that other scrape line.

I'll update this post

Jesse passed up 2 small buck and 10 does/fawns thursady evening right under the stand

Friday morning was prettyyyyy slowwwwwwwwwww but i got to see a dandy while scounting

Set Jesse up on that buck yesterday afternoon.He had him come in about 50-60 yards away but would close the gap by dark

This morning was slow as well.Picked Jesse up and we went to a small woods to try some calling.Started out with about 20-30 grunts waited about 1 minute then clashed a 150" set of sheds together for about 3 minutes none stop hard hitting

I look over to my right and 2 small 6 pointers about on top of me while Jesse was 40 yards to my left.I just kept on smasshing antlers.I could hear a couple infront of me but i was dug in a wood pile

Then i hear Jesse do a mouth grunt and i hear a whip from the bow then i hear a smack from the broadhead.I just kept on smasshin antlers.Look out in the field behind us 50 yards and about 150-160 incher looking my direction i just kept on smashin antlers.He headed back in the woods i stopped waited for a couple minutes then walked over to Jesse

His eyes the size of golf balls mouth wide open and he says did you see that shiot.What a monster he holds his arms out.Says that buck came running in so fast he past me went 10 feet infront of you stopped turned around and ran right back to me i grunted and he stoped.I wacked him

So were going trailin shortly

well its a lost cause. That buck came in hot and heavy and was ready to do some damage. When he came back around to me i grunted and stopped him and took a shot but my arrow deflected off a tree branch and stuck him right in the neck. Left him alone for a couple hours and went back followed the trail for around 1 mile and it stopped at the edge of a corn field. looked all afternoon but came up with nothing. He was a dandy alright guessing around 160" or so, really wide with good mass, long beams and tall tines.

This aint no joke guys theres a lot of monsters around just gotta spot'em and track'em down thats all. Just some rattlin brought 5 bucks in 2 definite shooters and 1 unknown he wouldn't come in just sat back a ways stoping and wheezin and 2 6's. what a rush havin them come in within 2 min of rattling. an unfortunate end for an awsome day but i gotta say it was a blast.

We'll give it 1 more try in the morning and see if Jesse can downn a monster i saw the other day.Were headed out with a corn ladder stand along a waterway about 5 am.I'll lay back in the corn with my call/Antlers just at day break i'll start war world 3 in the corn field to draw this slob out if he's around the area.My luck he'll attack me and Jesse will wonder what all the noise is back there

When i was trackin this buck i came across more scrapes and rubs.All freshly opened and wet so that tells me the bucks are checking them in the am as of now.How early is the next ? but i came along a solid line of rubs/scrapes you could tell at 4 pm those wet spots had been made in the last couple hours.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter

      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
