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.

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
