Help please...?!

9 posts in this topic

Alrighty guys and gals im in a dilema. i have two spots that i can go to archery hunt that i know there is a good possibility of pulling a nice buck or a nice doe out of. one of the spots i dont have a stand and i sit on a stump and the ohter spot i have four stands that are pretty perminant. The other night i was at the spot sitting on the stump and i saw a nice doe but didnt have a clear shot so i let it by. and today my dad and i went to the other spot and found huge buck tracks and a lot of doe tracks that are fresh. so i guess my question is, with the weather gunna be cold tomorrow morning and what not where do i go because i think the bucks at both spots come by in the morning?!

I think you think to much.

Play the wind as well as your gut and you will do fine. But mostly play the wind.

After you've got the wind figured out, which spot has the best eats for them? When the weather turns colder, they need extra food to stay warm. That's where you'll find the does and the bucks will be right behind them.

Agree with all the others, play the wind!.. Dont hunt a stand just because you think its better, if you get busted, you could ruin that stand for a while?..

My theory is the wind should #1 dictate which stand to sit in and #2 where the food source is, #3 inconjunction to bedding area.

Start with #1 and don't over think the process!!!!

i agree with you all but other than the wind i think he has to look at where these deer are in the morning. I have numerous spots where i know deer are in the morning but the problem is being able to get into the spot without spooking the deer. So yes play the wind, but also look at how easily you are able to get into the set without spooking deer

    • Branson is sort of in a transition, since they weren't going to survive catering to a population that's mostly dead now.   I've heard it's getting more interesting for people under the age of 75.     I grew up about 45 minutes from there.   We used to cruise through there on Friday nights and chat up bored out of their mind girls on vacation with grandma and grandpa.     The surrounding area is beautiful, once you get off the highway and away from the billion billboards.

    • Does anyone have any good ideas, memories, experiences with any hunting trips that they would like to share?  My dad is turning 60 in a year and a half and I would really like to plan a once in a life trip that I can buy him.  That being said, I can not spend 20 grand on a 2 man moose hunt in Alaska and that is being generous on the cost of that one, more like 30 plus.   Looking for a moose, caribou like trip.  He has shot a big muley in the past and an elk, so that may not be top on his list anymore.   Just looking for ideas.  Thanks much.

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks.
