Re: Little 6 point betrayed by two big does

Bossman, the Good Lord willing, we are going to try and get a doe the last week-end of the month out of the ol' clay pit. North of I-10 they are having a 2 more doe days this week end, this pit is 0.6 miles south of the big road. In my opinion, you can only hunt this stand successfully when there is...

Little 6 point betrayed by two big does

Got in the woods about 4 pm this afternoon, it was about 42 degrees and has been overcast for the last couple of days. A big doe came into the clay pit and headed for the gravity feeder. Soon another big doe was working her way up the bank toward the feeder. They played musical chairs for a bit and ...

Re: Deer Dog Drive - Thanksgiving Weekend Part II

Enjoyed this one, too! Sure miss all that kind of excitement. Got to thinking about how nice it must be to be able to run out there and catch a dog, my old knees won't allow it any more, every step needs to be deliberate anymore.
Y'all keep postin' the videos and we'll keep watchin'!

Re: Fluffing up last years food plot

The "trailer stand" yielded up a little 5 point, 1st deer for a grandson on Thanksgiving (pics in another post). I put a camera close to the big gravity feeder a few days before Thanksgiving and the date strip on the camera is all out of whack, this one went through the hurricane but it did get a bu...

Re: 1st Deer Dog Drive of the Season - Close Up with Deer!

Enjoyed y'all's video immensely! Brings back memories of 50 years ago. Of course we didn't have all the electronics y'all use today, we only had the CB radios, pickups, old jeeps and horses. Old men would have us younger guys ride with them so we could hear the dogs and tell them where to start look...

Re: out in woods

That sounds like a good idea! Maybe ol' big boy will come by and you can give him a ride in the back of the truck.

Re: Season Results

Just a couple of thoughts and comments on road kill. Back when I was gainfully employed, four schools, the district office and our maintenance shop were in Chipley, we also had three schools in the town of Vernon. My crews picked up several deer over the years that were fresh road kills on that 17 m...

Grandson's 1st deer

Our home place was turned upside down by Hurricane Michael. The grandson's shooting house is inaccessible, the big shooting house over looking the Rye and the clover is missing part of the roof, not really a problem but the shots are usually 100 yards or more. So we utilized a spot on our lease for ...

Re: Doe

Good job! Congratulations, some fine venison for your table. Glad your son was with you. My dad didn't care a thing about hunting but he gave the fish in Central Florida a fit beginning in the late 40's. I sure loved to fish with him, he's been gone for almost 40 years. Time flies. I had an uncle th...

Re: Fluffing up last years food plot

We have had to make a few changes in our hunting plans, at least for the grandsons' hunting at Thanksgiving. Our place is unbelievably wet! The boys shooting house is inaccessible because of downed timber, the big food plot and Durana Clover is questionable because of standing water and downed timbe...

Re: The honey hole

Good job, Bossman! The youtube video was neat. Glad you got a good one.
We are wet, wet, wet in the Panhandle and with all the hurricane damage things are sure different. I'm gettin' too old to be in the road clearing business with a chainsaw.
Keep bustin' them good ones!

Killboars, that's a mighty fine looking rub, appears a pretty heavy deer made that one!

Re: Getting out of my rut.

Carl,
Great looking bucks! I believe those two are refugees from the Panhandle, noticing the date on the picture, about 8 hours after Hurricane Michael started through our place.
Hope you take time and enjoy the stand.

Re: 2 important Florida races.

Amen, drgn4sr! This is the 1st time I voted early, mainly because of the terrible disruptions of the polling places being shifted due to our visit from Michael.
