Default RE: My Field Journal (VA & NC)

Well it is over. The end was pretty slow for me even though I did manage 2 uneventful evening sits the last week. The area I usually like hunting at the end of the season has been seeing a lot of action, unfortunately it is all hunters and 4-wheelers. My spot has been blown up. I was going to hunt the field I noticed the new stand inlast monthhoping noone would be there so I still hunted to a spot where I could see it but Iwouldn't be disturbing the guy if he was hunting. I could hear him before I saw him in the binocs. He was rattling and grunting and putting on a real show soI just went the other way and hunted some old fire lanes. I never heard any shots and I'm hoping they didn't have much luck so they will move to a different area next season we will see. I'm hoping for rain as well because normally it is too wet for 4 wheelers in this area but with the drought thisyear it got a little more attention.

I don't really mind but I have been hunting this area for about 15 years and it is very tricky.The deer are very skittish in the late season. These guys don't watch the wind and are hunting stands when their wind is blowing straight across bedding areas. Not to mention all of the foot and 4 wheeler traffic andawkward techniques. I guess I wouldn't mind if they were a little more stealthy but if I know you are there you better believe the deer know too and I just feel like they are educating them. Ohwell rant and season over, all in all it was very fun.

2 Bucks with my bow and 4 deer with my rifle, not bad for only getting out like 10-12 times(give or take a sit), I am looking forward to next season already, I have some new areas to hunt and some old ones I have been saying for years I was going to try different things on and it seems like next year will be a good time to start, hopefully I will be able to use the new pressure to my advantage if next season is similiar to this one.


THE END
