Not a true hunting report. I haven't made it out yet this year. Too many family and work commitments so far. I came home Friday from work early, carved the pumpkins and went to dump the guts in the woods along the fence line behind the house for the critters to eat and jumped a doe and a buck. Decent size to him, looked to be either a six or an eight point. I didn't see the brow tines.
Woke up sunday morning and was about to let the dog out when I saw a different, larger buck (wider rack and longer tines) herding a doe in the backyard. Chasing her hard like a border collie after sheep. That lasted maybe 5 min before they headed across the street and disappeared. The back yard reeked after that and the dog was in heaven. Then she reeked as well after rolling in a few choice spots.
When I was getting the news paper I noticed my neighbor's maple tree in the front yard has a nice new rub on it. This is a 15+ year old tree, not a sapling. Had another neighbor show me where a buck had decided to take out its aggression on a wild black cherry along his fence line, maybe 6 inches in diameter. Raked it clean of bark on one side. I put my trail cam out yesterday...
Sounds to me like you need to get in a tree stand!!!!
Got a buck and doe on Saturday. Got another doe today. 3 down and too many more to go .
8 pointer this morning .
8 pointer this morning
Bow? Rifle? Powder? Road kill?
Bow and blackpowder right now. Saw two bears come right up to the tree stand and a coyote....a bunch of deer, but out of range of a bow.
Saw a nice buck (8-10 pointer) just a few yards off the W&OD trail at Beaverdam Run (creek that comes off Ashburn Lake). Easy shot with a bow (well, not for me....I would miss)!!
