Will have to take a look at that buck. I spent some time in the woods this weekend too. Hot and humid - in the 90s - and full of mosquitos. My bug suit seems to work pretty well, though. I took some practice out there with my 3d target too and was pretty accurate at matching distances I estimated with my pins. Season starts on Saturday and am excited. Lots of does and one buck that I've seen so far.

That is a nice buck and great story of how he got him. Sounds like he did his homework and really earned his shot at him.

Anyway, shooting the 300s out to about 30 yards pretty accurate. Most shots will likely be half that though. Still using only broadheads for practice and had to put some new vitals in my delta backyard buck because I was shooting through.

Thanks for wishing me luck.Youwill be out there in the stand soon.My wife is sick of the hunting talk too and told me I could not talk about hunting for the next hour at one point on Saturday.

Hey 24/7 whereabouts in Wisconsin are you? You don't need to give me a city or town, just whereabouts? Do you or does anyone get Field and Stream? Bill Heavey, who I enjoy reading, traveled to Buffalo County, Wisconsin to finally get his big buck. I guess more Pope & Young deer have been arrowed in that county than anywhere else in the U.S.

I've been reading alot about that Vang trial that is about to start. For those who don't know or can't remember, a Hmong hunter gunned down 8 Wisconsin hunters on private land on which he was trespassing last fall. Six died and it is the word of the two surviving hunters against Vang. If I remember correctly, only one of the 8 had a gun at the time, but let's not get into that today. I was just wondering what the mood is like there. Is there a lot of remembrance of what happened last year and do you think the end of the trial will bring some closure. Just a terrible thing that happened. Hopefully the families can find some peace some day although they will never forget.

Thought I'd bump us up and ask a question. A huge storm that come through two weekends ago blew down and twisted some trees in our woods. One tree top just completely snapped down to the ground a few days ago and basically looks like a huge ball of leaves on the ground. I watched several deer mill around it yesterday as it is along their main travel routes. I'm thinking about going out there today on my lunch break and raking away the leaves around the tree top, trimming some lanes, and come Saturday, sinking into it with my 3d bug suit and waiting. What do you guys think? Any experiences hunting on the ground like this?

I think you just found the best natural deer blind in your hunting spot.Especially if its off a well used deer trail
Just make sure when you place yourself amongst all those branches and leaves you still have some clear shooting out in front of you.
I really enjoy using natural cover for ground hunting.Hay bales in fields,broken tree tops,long grass at edge of field etc.This way it is easier to follow the deers patterns.
Make sure you play the wind.Good luck----I wish you the best come saturday
