Gunning next weekend. Up north by Sandstone, Mn.
But have been Bow hunting since Sept. Have seen some nice bucks and one fight.
Seen 13 of them this morning. Mostly Does couple buck one 10pt another looked about the same but was to far for a positive ID count. They just need to come in a little close they like to hang out 60+ yards way out of my comfort zone with a bow.
I hunt in the Metro zone in a very good area :)

Deer numbers are way down in the 2 counties I hunt in Michigan. The only positive in that, is bucks have to do more traveling to find does. I've been sitting dark to dark since Oct. 25th. It finally paid off, got a nice 8 pt. yesterday. Gun season opener is the 15th of this month. And ah yes, deer camp, how do you describe it to someone who hasn't experienced it? Good luck, and more importantly, good times to all!

My favorite times were with my older daughter hunting and fishing. She got a couple deer and caught tons of fish. My younger daughter is trying to position herself to be able to do some of that but her and I focused on the house while she was here. Daughters...sons... hunting and fishing is a great way to teach some good life lessons while building a special bond.
We’re doing terrible in our area!

Our season went very well in the SE MN valleys. For four hunters, we got four animals on opening day. We got one respectable 8 point, one nice 9 with a split brow tine, a large 8 with a very nice rack and a large body, and one doe to round out the count.

We then spent a long time going to have samples taken for CWD testing. It was not well set up. It took about 1 hour and 45 minutes in St. Charles. The organization of the "line" had some people grumbling as well. The DNR will have to do much better or hunters might just decide to skip that important and required new part of the hunt. I hope that the process will improve with some experience for the DNR and the hunters. I have heard some more positive experiences from other stations.

Most important, we got together with family and friends and remembered our hunting partners who have left us. It is always my hope that my boys benefit from time with family and from learning more about the connections between today's world and the land and ways of life we have always used.

Wife shot a small buck opening weekend of Wis bow I shot a doe yesterday
afternoon.

Just got back from 8 days in Montana mule deer hunting we killed 2 out of 3 the third guy missed on two nice bucks.

I am going to try hard to kill a buck with the bow this week but at 9 above for temps.

I am not to happy to hang around in a tree.

Wis gun opener starts Saturday before thanksgiving gearing up for that also.

With 3 and a bear in the freezers another one or two doesn't matter buck there are always people I can give it to.

Being from Texas we have all kinds of exotic animals from around the world roaming free. They can be hunted year round. I took this Aoudad Wednesday. They make an incredibly great sausage. 99 links is what this animal produced. My wife and I eat Aoudad twice a week.

Hunting by Cook this year for the first time with a friend. He recently bought a cabin the was moved in from the BWCA years ago...Ely resort I believe. I got my buck early the first morning. It Has been really cold the last couple of days. 30 degrees later this week will feel balmy. It’s been fun hunting something different than what I am used to.

Yes use to hunt mule deer in Montana when a either sex license was $20 and bought it over the counter and in town they gave change back often in silver dollars(no we didn't get there by horse and buggy). Still have some of those. Mule deer hunting is my favorite.

I shot a big doe on Saturday morning. Funny thing is, I called her in with a buck grunt call and she came looking for me. Did the same thing a couple of years ago. Both bucks and does respond to the grunt, but sometimes bucks will wait until it's too dark to see before running to me...

It's a SRT Arms Titanium Shadow XL TI in 30 cal.
It's a Radical Firearms upper in 300 Blackout and a Rock River lower.
It's not as quiet as you might think. You still hear the supersonic crack of the bullet. My buddy heard me shoot and was about 75 yards away.
For the little Blackout round the deer was double lunged and only walked about 15-20 feet after the shot.

I think there are plenty of deer. Between the cold on the full moon just not a lot of movement during the daylight hours. We see lots of fresh tracks left overnight and they are there at night on the trail cams. The were no shots heard tonight for the last 3 hours of the day. Found this old relic deep in the woods while exploring today.

I hunted for about 6 days hoping for a buck.but very happy shooting a nice doe Friday.

I look back and even this year, I kind of hope I don't get a deer right away. I love being in the woods goofing off. Especially nice sunny days when the sun hits me in the deer stand. Down here we had very little sunshine. Sometimes it may sound weird-the lucky hunter is one who gets to stay in the woods for awhile. I am amazed tho,around Brainerd many hunters quit by noon the first Sunday,they had enough being outdoors.

For most people around Brainerd it looks like the harvest will be just a little down from last year. Longville area a little slower yet. From Brainerd to Longville is like only 50 miles but winter is like 2 weeks longer overall and a little harsher,plus a few more wolves,but they also seem down some.

Dicemaker still waiting to here from you and see if you got your usual monster buck down by Alexander.
 
11/17/2019 08:33PM
Busy week, just seeing this now, some really nice deer in here!

opening morning I saw 40+deer within 100yds of the stand by 10:30 when I got down to go get mine (took him at about 9) Just picked him up from the processor on Wednesday, he was a good size boy, ended up with 93lbs of boneless meat.

I shoot in a shotgun and pistol zone and I’m seriously considering shooting my Noveske 300blk pistol, it’s damn accurate and although I haven’t got the final ballistics on hand I suspect it will be around 80-85% of the energy my slug gun has @ 100 yds but more reliable in the accuracy department.

What are you running for a load? What is your barrel length and any idea on velocities you are seeing?

I did 4 12 hour "shifts" on stand and 4 morning or evening hunts around Glenwood and one morning hunt in Eagle Bend. I saw at least 50+ deer sitting on stand. Saw a few 'huge' deer driving out to the stands in the morning. Mostly fawns and spike bucks. My 2 older brothers cashed in on some bigger bucks this year! We would kid one brother about always 'weeding out the gene pool' He finally has a wall mounter now! The most deer I have seen in many years! Still have my bow tag to fill!

He was a heavy SOB, I normally dont weigh my meat but after picking him up I was like 2 full boxes and they are both heavy as hell. I’d say normally a big buck gets me 35-40lbs of trim, this one went 62, 18 for the two roasts, 13 for the tenders and back straps, oddly the tenderloins seem kinda on the small side compared to normal.

I hunt near Alex, groups of 6-8 does rolling through are fairly common, almost always a buck bringing up the rear, I saw 2 big boys that never gave me a clean shot, then the one I took, then one more nicer buck after I took mine, probably 4-6 crappy bucks mixed in there as well.

Nice deer, Always liked the big woods hunting.
I hunted down the Wolf lake road in 1969 and shot one of my biggest bucks ever.
Than not sure if it was 1976 or 77(around than) I hunted past the wolf lake road gate and up the logging road to Phantom lake and north.
I was walking thru a semi grown cutting and all over there were rubs on trees all over-Moose. About a hour later I hear this clanging of antlers hitting trees and brush. Here walks out the 3 biggest moose I ever had seen-all had like a double shovel like a monster Alaska moose would have there. It was quite a spectacle.

Its interesting over the years I checked the % deboned meat vs dressed weight of deer. Seen other studies also. It averages 34%. I think the bigger deer you might push it up close to 40% and a percent either way.

I am very right handed so it has really slowed me down


Will report back in a couple of days"


Usually I cut myself gutting or deboning. This year I got lucky. My brother cut himself gutting once and than he got a bad infection. Clean your cuts good.

sorry to hear this, godspeed on your recovery
I hope this is not taken the wrong way, but this is what I meant earlier
it's not about the quality of equipment

BTW, I mounted my 50mm scope on my .22LR marlin 60 with Leopold scope rings that allow using the sights , total cost of the setup = just under 30 bucks,yes, that includes scope!

gawd I love this setup
