"present".... Good luck fellas. I have a busy travel schedule next two weeks, but going to try to sneak out a day or two. Then - I plan to hit the woods pretty hard end of Oct. and Early Nov. Be safe.... but deadly.

Here. I was lucky enough to get us on the board. Shot a doe Saturday.

Congrats youth hunter. I wont be hunting most likely until the end of the month. I will be out of town starting Thursday for an impromptu fishing trip with my wife to the fingerlakes in NY.

Congrats YouthHunter! Way to get us on the board! I am going to try a MidWeek hunt tomorrow since my next two weekends are jammed up. I'm hoping the colder weather will yield some good movement. I hope to report back that I was able to contribute.

I've got a cabin booked for my Athens spot November 5th-8th. I'll be back down for gun season, usually bow hunt the weekend before gun, so hopefully can get it done with a bow.

Back in town after two weeks of work travel. Ready to spend some time in the woods the next two weeks should be prime time... Anyone else been out?

I went scouting with my 3 year old daughter this weekend. Picked out a spot for this Friday and maybe Monday. We still have majority leaf cover so I am not expecting much. Nov 8-15 I am going to my cabin. Let's hope the deer are more co-operative than they have been. My dad and his cousins have been hunting up there all season and have had very limited sightings.

Game on first day out for me. No critters yet but it feels great to be out.

I'm on the Board! Got a Halloween doe this afternoon. She was dressed up as a mature doe.... but I realized it was just a costume when I approached her. By far, the smallest deer I've shot and feel terrible about it. She was alone and without any comparison she looked like a decent doe. Needless to say she had some serious ground shrinkage. As bad as I feel for taking such a young deer, I know the meat will be consumed. I will try to figure out how to add the picture from my phone.

Congrats Toke. We've all been there and done that. Look at it on the bright side. Those are the tastiest ones.

11-01-2015, 01:03 AM
Congrats toke! Nothing wrong with shooting a lil every now and then, like you said she'll be eatin' and she'll be soooo tender and tasty.

11-01-2015, 08:02 AM
I shot a little one last year it happens when they are along. I dont worry about it since they are tasty.

11-03-2015, 07:37 PM
Thanks Guys... makes feel a little better. I've had backstraps prepared many ways.... but this morning - I have to say I think I had the best straps ever..... FOR BREAKFAST! Two overeasy eggs and straps that were marinated for 24 hours! Forget Steak and Eggs - Straps and eggs are legit!

11-04-2015, 07:32 PM
Congrats! That what happened with me on my doe this year, she came in pretty fast and was solo. Thought she was bigger. I'll be out the next three days, the heats killing me.

11-11-2015, 07:40 PM
Well the three day hunt didn't produce any luck.

11-12-2015, 07:27 AM
I'm on day 4 of 6. Only had one opportunity at a small doe. She walked. Wish me luck cause the weather has been nasty rain and high winds

11-13-2015, 05:18 PM
Nomad - if you have been out there in the winds the last two days, you get my nod for Dedicated Hunter of the year! I would be scared to be up in a stand for fear of the wind blowing my tree over! Good luck on your last day or two!

Toke2 - Yep I hunted the winds and surprisingly saw some deer. I missed one afternoon due to the winds. That day it was a little much for me. Ended up passing on a small doe Monday morning and Saturday morning I had a doe come it but she never gave me a good shot. She took two big steps through my only shooting lane after feeding just shy of it for 10 minutes. I didn't count on that and couldn't get the bow drawn. That is most likely the end of my archery hunting until the late season. Hopefully I get lucky with 6.5 days to hunt of the 12 days of PA rifle season. The weather last week was the worst I have hunted in, in a long long time sustained crappy weather day after day. If it wasn't heavy rain it was heavy winds, and heavy winds with white out conditions were seeing 20 yards was tough. It was a long wet week. We only had 2 dry days out of 6 hunting days. I think better weather would have resulted in better hunting and deer sightings.
