Prediction...

12 posts in this topic

I'm going to go sit this evening (finally!) and I've got a funny feeling in my tummy! Who knows if I'll even see a deer, but I have a good feeling about tonight. I had a dream last night that I shot a nice buck. We'll just see if I can make it reality. Wish me luck!

I hope your prediction comes true for you.

If it does, can you make a prediction that I will harvest a 150 class buck this week! smile

I had that feeling last night. Its that time of the year when I kinda get the butterflies every time I go out. I hope your prediction comes true, that would be pretty sweet to "call your shot" and have it happen.

Went out last night, lots of activity, but the deer were all bedded by the corn field. Busted when I walked in, only saw a couple more after that. The deer don't have to move anywhere right now, they just go into the woods a little ways and bed down. Tough hunting if the corn doesn't leave soon...

last night a coworker who knows I live in the woods in the fall said she dreamt that I shot a 6 point buck with a gree growing out of its head. Strange, huh. Scoot, if you see a 6 point buck with a tree growing up our of its head, don't shoot it, evidently its mine.

Last night was the first time in my life that I saw more bucks than does. I passed on very respectable 6ptr, a spike, and then heard brutus either fighting or rubbing the [PoorWordUsage] out of a tree but it sure sounded extremely load. With this warmer weather I was thinking they would slow down but last night proved otherwise. I think you might be right, the bucks are curtainly on the move.

If you have any questions on where to hunt the ranch Scoot, shoot me an e-mail.

Personally I would head to the west of the house through the gate about 100 yards from the yard. Go through the next gate that is probably down and all the way to the picked corn field.

As you get close to the corn go north approx 100 yards and set up back in the woods about 10 yards or so. The deer have been hitting the field fairly heavy. And yes, we have seen some nicer shooters there too.

Good luck tonight.

Maybe she meant the rack was so big it looked like a tree. I will keep my fingers crossed for ya that she is psychic.

Cool- thanks everyone! I'm not really trying to "call my shot", just saying I had a dream and I've got a good feeling! Of couse that feeling might just be gas... blush

Tom, thanks much for the suggestion- I would be dumb to sit somewhere other than where you suggest, so if the wind will let me, that's where I'll go! I'll shoot you an e-mail to see if I follow where you're talking about. Thanks again for the tip!

Well... apparently the funny feeling was just gas! Tom, I went in the area you mentioned and it was perfect. However, the wind switched and I was pretty well screwed for any deer coming from the West. I saw four deer, but they were about a mile to the NW on a grassy hillside. Beautiful night in the stand though- doesn't get any better! Also, I took my 11 year old nephew out with me and he had a blast! We had a cow come under the stand for a while and he thought that was funny as heck. The cow was bellering loud as heck and my nephew got the giggles about it- we had a good chuckle.

Tom, when you get to the house I left a present there for you. If you park in the driveway so the steps are on your left and the wood pile is on the right: go over to the wood pile. There's a set of sheds wrapped up in rope on the left half of the wood pile. Right next to those sheds, you'll find your present. Thanks again for your generosity.

Good luck out there next week!!!

    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.  
    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
    • In my opinion I would look for a nice used wingmaster 2 of my friends have bought a new 870 express about a year apart and they both had the same shell extraction problems. Maybe just a fluke but when I see two different people have the same problem with a Gun makes me think to find a different choice. Heck I have a Mossberg 500 that I treat like poop and I have never had one single malfunction.   I have shot my friends newer express and I can really tell the difference in quality beside my wingmaster  
    • I have Ice Kings.  They are in a word, awesome.  They are about 20-25 years old. Dang I hate dating myself but I have never even bought new liners for these boots.  They are probably one of the finest products I won.  I have never had so much as a chill i my feet.  I usually fish outside but if I am in a flip over, my feet are usually on the ice.  Again, never a chill.  I typically wear a midnight smart wool sock.   For some reason I have been considering new boots.  I guess it is the weight, I would love to have something that is not s heavy and also has better traction.   Today I visited Joe's Sporting Goods and saw some really nice boots (they have a great selection) by Muck, Lacrosse, Sorel, Baffin and some other Canadian made boot that looked very nice. I checked out the ice Kings........they are not the same boot as I have, they don't seem to have the quality to me.  They might be as warm but the rubber feels more stiff almost like it would crack, the uppers are solid leather, mine are leather and corder combo.  The liner also seemed thinner.   After looking at all the boots, I am surprised none offer water proof uppers. Also I am not entirely certain why some seem extend up to your knee with insulation.  Just seems like Over kill because most who would where these boots owed also have some sort of insulated pant on.  Overall I found the boots to be pretty heavy, I was surprised with 20 years past boots have not advanced more.
    • But will be missed but most.............you mad bro?    
    • You boxed yourself.   He was not supporting the Vikings stadium, he was saying that Republicans supported it and now are feigning outrage over the cook subsidy. And then not to be outdone the Republicans are now celebrating the Carrier subsidy.   Pretty much just reinforced his point.      
    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."........and all will be well.
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
