I know Jim usually starts this thread every year but he hasn't been visiting so I thought I would get it kicked off with the early doe season and all. Have fun in the woods this year everyone and be safe and thankfull for all of our harvest.JB

Hope everyone had a better start than me, creepy quite in the woods this morning. Like spooky werewolf movie quite, no birds, no squirrels, nothing, just quite. Was really spooky, but great to be in a stand, back to it in the morning. Good luck all!, be safe. Todd

Thursday was pretty quiet, but had to leave early. Tonight was the same until just before dusk.

Had the bejeebers scared out of me by a deer that sneaked up behind me and snorted... about jumped out of the stand! [laughing] Spooked 4 in the field as I left. Didn't see the heads on any of them. Seeing deer is something I will never complain about! My EAS is done thanks to work. But the countdown to the 1st continues... 318 hours; 13 days! [thumbsup]

Spent the weekend at the cabin cleaning things up. Also put up 4 stands and my tree camera. Shot with the grandkids on Sunday and had a great time.

With all the rain we have had lately the mosquito's were out of control. Could use a couple of really cold nights.

Getting ready for the tradgang/veteran camp out at Hartwick Pines the second week of October.

Everyone have a great season and remember to "Thank a Vet" because they are the reason we can do the things we can do.

Semper Fi to all.

I made a trip to the thumb with the idea of doing some turkey and doe hunting. Spent most of Saturday erecting a ladder stand in a pretty good spot that I'm excited to hunt. Sat for the evening hunt without much luck and bailed early to watch the Spartans.

I only sat until about 8 Sunday. Should have stayed another hour! There were two turkeys roosted in a tree 30 yards from me that I spooked and I don't know how many deer blew out on the way to the truck. Not too smart on my part! Good thing the place can air out a little before the opener. How nice is it to have Oct 1 fall on a Friday?

Please dont mention anything that was killed with any type of firearm.

No hunter should feel guilty for killing a deer that doesnt meet someone else's expectations.

Hey guys and girls. Even though we are inside our own little area of Tradgang we still need to respect and obey their rules. Please keep it related to traditional archery only.

Thanks,
Tim

Hunted this morning. First time in 12-15 years I went out on opening morning. I had a doe and 2 fawns around me for 1/2 hour or so eating acorns. They finally passed by at 7 yards, just like I planned it. After they were gone, another doe and fawn repeated the act. Ate acorns for awhile and passed on by....
Not sure about tonight, may go walleye fishing if its raining.

Hunted this morning and didn't see a single thing.

Tonight, had a button buck that stayed with in 20 yards, for close to 45 minutes. Decided to pass. Had a buck just out of range and behind some brush. Also had three does come out around 80 yards. Trying to get my first kill on tape this year. Could have today, but I'm waiting for something besides a yearling ... [thumbsup]

Good luck guys!

Jack
