What should i do?

8 posts in this topic

i had just found a good spot in a fairly small hunting area in the metro that gets alot of pressure from duck hunters and also bowhunters. i went out in the morn. a few days ago and saw one doe. i had seen a lot of fresh rubs and scrapes and it looked pretty promicing. i went back tonight and there were even more scrapes. i didnt hear/see anything all day and was getting out of my stand at dark and out of nowhere theres a nice buck about 15 yrds from me and bolts off. can i go back there and if so how long should i let it sit

Go back. Just change trees or move a bit. On public land trying to "rest" a spot is useless because someone else will be trompin through there.

Exactly - where's he gonna go and not run into pressure somewhere, unless you're near a sanctuary of some sort. With the rut kicking in soon, you never know.

with the rut kicking in if your seeing hardly any does theres a large possibility that the buck you seen will be leaving the area looking for a hot doe no matter what the hunting pressure is

I would try to hunt as much as possible Thur/Fri. With the weather, falling temps, rut and hunters moving deer around the next couple days are going to be your'e best bet to stick one. Keep at it, good luck.

    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?    
    • Gotta let youse guys carry on wid something!!! 
    • so why did you say it then!!!!
    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
