TOPIC: Deer Hunting

Deer Hunting 6 years 4 weeks ago #14972

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 :)

Dandy buck Chief! He'll be hard to beat. Didn't have the one I shot last year scored....but probably only in the 120's

Bowhunting has been very good this year. Too bad my 'sang patch isn't in my backyard! I'm gonna do so deerhunting over the patch this year, try to cut the traffice down in there...

Anyway, saw a very nice buck, just too far away to shoot. Wonderful woods days this past weekend [we can bowhunt on Sundays here in NC on private land].

Squirrells are all over the place! Heavy acorn production this year...

Cheiftan and Sprang: Very nice bucks you got!

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.
