Firearms hunt out of your archery stand?

9 posts in this topic

How many of you use the same stand/location for firearms as you do for archery?

Absolutly! You've been scouting all season for the best spot, why would you go somewhere else?

Only way I would move is if your favorite spot is along a field edge. IMO you need to get back off the edge into some thicker escape cover.

Good luck!

I'm usually very close. I tend to move my gun stands a bit to cover more tails since I can shoot much further.

Definitely, unless of course you're in a super thick area with limited visibility.

We use basically the same stands, some stands were we patterned a buck may be in a more defined area, we move them to give us more visibilty with guns, but there still in general area once rut gets going you never know quit were they will show up.Except they will show up looking for does.

My best archery stand is mabe 55 or 65 yards from the stand I normaly rifle hunt from on opening morning. This year I will be hunting from the bow stand durring the first weekend of the rifle season. I hope to get a deer with the handgun this season and my bow stand puts the deer at a range inside of 35 yards.

My "best" rifle stand is left alone during the first weekend and due to the way it is set up it is only a rifle stand. So in that regard no, I do not hunt from an archery stand there.

Yep, although it pains me to see a nice deer 100 yards out that would be an easy shot when I have the string in my hands...

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • 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

    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • 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?
