I hunt with a party of 10. 4 adults, 6 kids.

I shot 2 small bucks this morning, didn't see much the rest of the day. Today may have been the most miserable I've been in my entire life. Cold, super duper windy.....ick.

The only deer I saw today is now in my freezer! Good thing for those freezer filler tags! The wind sucked today, I should've had motion sickness medicine today! I will be hunting for the big buck now!

my brother in law took a small 5 pointer today, they watched a doe for a half hour last night waiting for a buck to come out, he wanted to bring his daughter today for a shot at the doe.

Saw a "flash of brown".... went to check it out....found 2 scrapes that had been freshened. Wind was swirling around, and coming from everywhere.That made it impossible to be DOWNWIND from any trail. That was it for us.....except for one little incident........... We were cold, and frustrated from the wind etc., so we went to the truck for a sandwich and to warm up a little. About 11:00 we were discussing options etc.............

when a beautiful mature buck burst out of the public woods we were hunting, crossed the road 30 yards away from us and burst into some private(no hunting area) land, while our jaws dropped in shock. What a beautiful buck!!!We debated if it was a 6 or 8 pt, but the body was in the 180 # range. gorgeous!!!

We hunted on our land in Ottertail County. Our party of 4 got 3 bucks and a doe on Sat, didn't see a deer on Sun. There were quite a few moving on our land but the neighbors didn't shoot all weekend. Hardly any shots off in the distance.

I shot a nice 8 point at 725am on Saturday morning - 50 miles NW of two harbors. It was COLD and WINDY so I just sat on our driveway (which is 2 miles long)- thinking if I got too cold I would just go to the shack and warm up.

Just as I was debating on weather to go inside I see brown walking down the drive. I pull up by 7mm WSM and notice horns. Pull the trigger about a foot above the back.

You ask why a foot above the back? Well finding the deer went 10 yards in to woods to the east it turned out to be a great shot at 472 YARDS!!!!

I have never shot that far but felt comfortable since I was sitting on a chair with an arm rest. Straight shot with no obstructions.

Everyone in our party were amazed at the shot and result.

Not that I doubt you but I would like to see that driveway, sounds like it is straight as an arrow. And don't tell us you got an nice buck without pictures!

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
