Right now primetime to hunt is late morning through early afternoon...get out there. I was out this afternoon and with the full moon up already, I doubt the deer were going to get up til after dark when the moon was high and bright.

It beats the heck out of work and you cant kill em from the couch. Get there. They're still moving. I've seen more in the evenings with the moon like it is, but all it takes is once for the hunt of a lifetime. Besides that, the kill is only a part of a great hunt.

I never really had any luck hunting the day before, the day of and the day after a full moon. So i dont go untill after the full moon period is done. Like this weekend, I wont be going back out till Monday night, wer have a our statewide youth hunt this weekend which requires all hunters except waterfowl hunters to werar at least 50% blaze orange. I may go out tomorrow and sit in the condo then I can at least take off the balze orange. Hopefully I can deter them tresspassing little brats from cross ing onto our side of the river and shooting deer on my property. Sinc echances are they wont be expecting anyone huntingon our side. Weve just had too many problems this year to not keep an eye on things, fields tore up, fecnces cut, stands moved and turned so they are facing directly into the sun. We are pretty sure we know who it is, we just have to catch them on our side and that will be the end of it, theyve already gooten themselves inheap of trouble this summer with the local law enforcement.
1. Shooting leadbullets into a river.
2.Reckless use of a firearm.
3.Uncased firearm on an ATV
4.Uncased loaded firearm on an ATV
5.Disturbing the peace
Some of these charges are agaisnt their father, what else can we soon add.
6.Tresspassing
7.Destruction of private property
8.Destruction of PrivateAgricultural Land (Felony in WI)
Im sure the list can go on and on. If it was legal in Wi id make a citizens arrest with anyone I find on our property that doesnt belong.
