I'm gonna try something new.

13 posts in this topic

I got a good place to hunt its a corn picked corn field next to a large private managed woods. There is no trees in the fence line on my side. but the hill slops very hard in to the fence line at one point. The same point where all the deer funnel out. So if things work out for me and I can go second season shot gun i'm thinking of taking my goose blind and seting it at the crest of the hill a 100 yards off the fence line. I can shoot out of it laying down I've done it turkey hunting and it would blend in awsome. Anyone know of anyone trying this before?

Careful where your aiming in a laying position.

I think when using a blind you have to have some blaze orange on it during gun season.. Make sure you look into regulations on that... Otherwise I think its probably a good idea.

Here's how I see it. Bob and Jethrow are walking back for lunch. Bob says, hey see the lump over on the hill? I'll bet you that is a deer laying there. Jethrow put up the gun and say's yes, I just saw it move.

I would put a lot of orange on it!

Any shrubs on that hill? Just nestle into the shrubs and break up your outline, you'll be fine. I don't think I would want to laydown on the ground the last week of November, especially for any length of time. If there is no brush pile, make one this week.....

I got a heat pad for the blind. Plus I plan to keep my head out of the blind and yes I will blend blaze into the blind. Also my brother might not like me draging brush into his feild.

Ha! I hope that Bob and Jethrow are smart hunters and are sure of their intended target! If not, maybe they shouldn't be in the woods.

I'd blaze up my blind for sure, and keep the eyes peeled! Good luck!

tipup...i did something similar about 10 years ago on a chunk of land we were hunting.

there was about a 15 acre woodlot in the middle of a 2 mile section. Pretty much all fields around it, but a few small fencelines came off of it. deer would run out of the woods, go about 200 yards and then stop and look back into the woods. Then across the field they would go on their trail. Well, their trail was in a lower spot in the field. So, one morning I set up about 30 yards uphill from their trail. I could not see anything at the edge of the field because of the slope of the land. When I saw deer they were going to be close. We sent a guy to push the woods. 7 deer came up on my right and being righthanded I had to sit up as I was laying on my stomach facing the woods. I sat up and shot the biggest doe. Off they ran while I quickly reloaded my muzzleloader. I laid back down quickly and shortly later here came 2 deer and they stopped right on their trail and looked back into the woods- just like we had drawn up. I took the bigger doe and quickly reloaded. About 3 minutes later, a buck stopped in the same row I was laying in. A quick shot and down he went.

3 deer in under 10 minutes with a muzzleloader. (We were party hunting.)

It will work- sometimes you have to think out of the ordinary to take a deer! Good luck and let us know how it goes!!!

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
