All during shooting hours! Hopefully they keep that pattern for you come Sept
I hope so, it should be fun chasing them anyway
Went and got my ground blind setup today
Cleared a spot in the middle of a big patch of buck brush
Set the blind up, cleared some shooting lanes, and pulled both trail cams, now I wait for opening weekend. Here are a couple shots of what my view will be
Forgot to take any pics after brushing it in a little bit. It wasn't my best work anyway
I guess I should put the pics of my target buck on here
Haven't seen him lately, hopefully he's around, I pulled my cams just so I don't disturb the area before season
You also have my attention!
Got my vector grunt tube today, counting the days til season
Curious how/why you picked that spot for your blind?
Basically all the timber you see isn't on the property I can hunt. It's basically where I killed mine last year. It's close to two major trails that join up by those cedars, I put it about 25-30 yards from the convergence of the two trails so I hopefully have both covered.
I know it's a weird location but it works
Not second guessing you at all. Just like to gather info on why decisions are made. I've got some spots like that on my farm. Looks like low lying area or valley from the pics. Just watch your thermals. Good looking spot.
Last year I set up in the only trees in about a 10 acre patch there and watched deer walk all over the open fields, bought a ground blind and put it in a very similar location with great success. Put out two cams facing different directions to determine which ways they were traveling this year. I would put my blind in those cedars but if they come out on the back side I'd never see them. This field is surrounded by timber stands, all of it I can hunt is too thick to see more than a couple yards, the deer really don't travel in it. They come through this field to graze and get to water. It's actually at the top of a hill, they walk down to water, but are down there mainly after dark. I've really had to scout and change tactics to be successful here.
9/18/15-first sit of the year. Went out to find my cheap ground blind destroyed, reverted to my old tree stand (no harness). Not sure how this weekend is gonna go but it's not starting off too well
And I just stepped on
My brand new vector grunt tube
Well weekend 1 didn't go as planned, have to pull out the doghouse again I guess. Hunted Friday after checking out my mangled ground blind, saw 1 doe, Saturday am saw 1 doe, nothing close enough to think about a shot. Hope to go down this weekend and would like to at least see something in range.
Weekend two has been cancelled, my sons been battling an ear infection for a month and today the doc said it's still infected, he has to get shots the next three days
Sorry to hear that.
Hopefully your son heals up and you can get out soon!
Well I decided to do something productive (hunting related) with my weekend.
I had a couple broken pallets that my wife was going to use for a craft project and didn't, so I decided to make a blind with them. I built one decent pallet with the two broken ones, bought a cattle panel and some camo tarps, and I plan on making a camo round bale style blind. Here is where I finished before I had to quit to help with the sick kid.
