Waldo - he looks like he's posturing to another buck, with his ears laid back like that. Good luck with him.

I had an 8 ptr at 14 yds last week, and a 9 ptr at 17 yds this evening... passed on both of the 3 1/2 yr olds... I am hoping a nice nontyp will cross my path... still trying.

Fsh,

Sounds like your in the right spot, just need a little lady luck to be on your side and your in the money.

Was out last weekend and passed on two does, saw 2 different buck, a small 6 or 8 point (not a shooter) and one very respectable (shooter)8 pointer that never made it to me before dark. I've got a vacation day on this Friday and next Thursday and Friday so I'm hoping with the weather change and the increase buck sign that I can score on one of those days. It's getting to be that special time of year and anything can happen.

Good luck,

Brian

Went last night and seen 12 deer. 6 bucks with the biggest being a 120" 11 pointer. Nice just short tined. Got them all on video. They are really checking scrapes now in SE KS. Good luck to all. Waldo

I hunted a spot for the first time this year this afternoon,having "fixed" it up last January for a pre-rut adventure. It's in a nice travel corridor/funnel. Close... a shooter 10 ptr came thru the thicket following a doe in the early afternoon - not a monster, but a respectable 4 1/2 (??) -maybe 130-ish, but he met my criteria. Just no legitimate shot, he never got closer than 35 yds in heavy cover and ignored my grunting then rattling. If you guys can max out your hours in the stand next week, I think we're in for an early rut...

Then a scary moment tonight when a dead ~8" tree crashed down just 20 yds ahead of me across my intendedpathas I was walking out of the woods - we had 6+" of rain the past three days. It would have done some serious damage, when your time is up, its up! My time is not yet up, lol.

Hey guys, still hunting??

I took a break from the bow to (shotgun) hunt fall turks yesterday with a friend of mine, something of a tradition -we've been doing since the 80's. I called in about 20 turks off the roost, and soon had one at 8 yds in front of me. But I wanted my friend to get off the first shot (we're sitting on opposite sides of the same tree), and when he did, my turk was out of range. Still, if I had my wits about me, I could have nailed one... regardless, it's alwaysa fun hunt whether we get a bird or two or not...

I saw a slew of deer on a marathon sit in the tree stand Tues. One nice 3 1/2 8 ptr followed a doe < 10 yds past my tree stand, the rest were dinks. I passed on him - there are two bigger bucks still (?) around that area. Three friends have nailed mature bucks in the past week+, two of them were ~160 class (gross). The big guys are vulnerable now...

On the board teammates. I just posted a 10 ptr I took this afternoon, 126 4/8. Not one of the monsters I've been hoping for, but a nice one. I was on the stand just 15 minutes this afternoon when a doe came running up and stopped. She kept looking back, and next thing I know, the 10'er was standing just 8 yds away. He met my criteria, and I aimed for the heart, center-punching it. He only went ~40 yds before piling up.
