I know that we have quite a few deer hunters who are members of this site. Just thought I'd start a new thread for all of us hunters to post on. Don't have a lot to share so far. Just got in the woods to hunt for the first time this fall this morning. Had a young buck wander by at about 12 yards. That was the only deer I saw. Could have had a limit of squirrels if I'd of had my 22 instead of my bow:)
I like to squirrel hunt, but with just a short time between when the ginseng goes down and the pre-rut starts picking up just seems like I seldom get to go. If I can anchor a nice older buck early in bow season then I'm definately going to thin some of those rascals out
Do you guys make much jerky? I like to use half soy sauce and half worcestershire sauce. Mix some salt and black pepper maybe a little red hot sauce if you like it hot. Then soak a couple of days in the frig. Just a cheaper way to make your own mix.
Wow, great deer! Here's my bow kill I got a couple weeks ago.
No bucks, saw a couple but no shots. Our last day of bow season was Sunday, the very day I found my first two scrapes! I also saw a buck nosing a doe Friday .... and the foolish state of Vt says no more hunting til rifle season...Nov. 13th!
