Here are some photos fromMadison County VA, over Thanksgiving weekend. One of our member's son, Jacob and his 3 pointer. First deer with his new 243. The 2nd shot is A picture of my 8 pointer. The 3rd picture is from the Somerset Corner Store parking lot. The local hunter shot this brute while dragging his doe out of the woods at 9:30 am. Found this buck in the thickets while walking to the truckdragging his doe. Some guys have all the luck. Weare thankful for all these wonderful deer, goods friends, good family, good times and Mother Earth.

Rut is still on. heard a buck grunting after does on friday. Shot a 4 x 2 on Saturday that was chasing does. Thought he was an 8 pointer. Rut is running later this year. Think heat and weather changes are making it start and stop.

Ok so I just joined. I'm a member of another popular hunting forum but they don't have anyone near me on there. I'm on the edge of barboursville and the green county line. I've only been hunting since thanksgiving and all I seem to be doing is scaring them off. Every time I go out, about 30-45 minutes later I can hear gun shots going off all around me.

I make sure that I'm scent free and I'm in a groundblind. I'm hunting with a borrowed savage .308 on my private land, of which only about 2 acres are wooded and most of that is VERY thick brush, briar patches, and thin (6" or less) tall trees that the deer mainly use for a bedding area.

Any suggestions?

Deerdoghunter,

Thanks for letting us know about the activity in your neck of the woods. Good luck the rest of the season.



Gary22923,

Good things come to those who wait. You need to continue spending time in the woods. Scouting the area for deer signs and trails will give you a better idea of where to set up. Don't try to set up within the bedding areas. All you will do is flush out the deer in that area. Get in the woods early and set up near thetrails going to and frombedding and feeding areas.Look for funnels and pinch points for good set upareas. You may want to consider tree stands. Get up off the ground and you will see so much more.Best of luck during the rest of the season. Let us know how you do.

tourangeaud, where are you hunting in madison? what's your name? I was born and raised in Madison and still hunt there. Right now I'm in school at Va Tech. The rut activity we've seen on the land we lease has been pitiful this year. The last week of bow season and opening day of ML was good, that's it.
