    How'd Everyone Do This Weekend?

    Unsuccessful for me in the punching a tag this weekend, but had a good weekend seeing deer. Saw 16 on Saturday, and 4 Sunday, just couldn't grow a single legal antler on any of them. Just from keeping an eye on facebook I think I may be one of only a handful in Franklin county that hasn't...

    In terms of opportunities I had a great season. I'm not one of those guys that hunts on the side of a 100 acre field and talks about seeing 10-15 deer a night. To be honest I can't remember the last time I've hunted within sight of a field. I'm usually up on a hillside oak stand, ridge...

    Boy They're Tough!

    So I've had very very limited time to get in the woods this year with coaching soccer, and family obligations. I had been eyeing this last weekend for a couple weeks now knowing absolutely nothing was planned! I have a few cameras out, all of them in oaks. Two cameras have been on an oak...

    Heading West

    Well it'd be a long story if I told everything, but after researching many states, applying for a NR Montana Elk tag with dad, returning a montana elk tag, and purchasing two OTC tags in Idaho, finally plans are finally starting to come together. Just bought a round trip plane ticket to Idaho...

    Good Pull

    Had a good pull yesterday. Cam was out for about 3 weeks, and a little over 1700 pics. Lost track how many bucks, and hard to tell what bucks are different or the same. But my guess is 4-5 different 8's, a 7, couple 6's, couple 4's, and two spikes. The small 8, and 6 fought in front of the...

    Interesting Lake Ontario Day

    So it was an ummm interesting trip on lake Ontario this weekend. My wife's cousins boat was in the shop so we headed out with one of his buddies. We met at the dock at 7am (earliest we could get the girls to agree to get there by) and we were heading out of the harbor 15min later. My wife's...

    Soft Horn

    Saw my first couple bucks this weekend. Had a bach group of 4 try to cross the road in front of me Saturday morning. Came around a corner and the first one was in the middle of the road. He let me come to a stop before he continued across. He had velvet to the top of his ears already! I...

    Went out with a bang

    Ok that title might be a little misleading but it got you here and reading so here we go. I killed a bird first week of the season, and with very little time to hunt with two kids, coaching softball, and the on going house projects I was fine with that one bird being my one and only bird. Some...

    Fun Morning

    Our 2yo had his yearly check-up this morning at 8:30 so I figured I could sneak out for a few hours prior. I've done zero scouting, a little driving, but that's about it. So I figured I'd go to a place I've had luck in the past and take a nap at the bottom of a tree somewhere. I headed to a...

    New Arrow Set-up

    So my hunting buddy and I are looking at new arrow set-ups. We both currently shoot rage, but after seeing what happened to me in ohio with hitting what I think was the brisket bone we're contemplating going to a fixed blade, more specifically probably slick tricks. I'm leaning toward the...

    Irish Setter Hiker/Hunters

    So about a year ago I was kicking the tires on changing up boots for bow hunting in ohio. I primarily use rubber boots here in Vermont, but in ohio its warmer, not a ton of water, and rugged terrain. Would make for damp sore feet on most days. So I was kicking the tires on a pair of...
