Lip squeaked one in at noon.....

3 posts in this topic

I was bowhunting this past Sat hoping for some midday rut activity. Right at high noon a beautiful yote comes over the ridgetop saddle I was set up on. He was at the edge of bow range but being that I was sitting with the bow on the hanger at the time it didn't really matter.

I managed to get up, grab the bow, and do some lip squeaking right before he dropped off the ridge. He paused, then continued, then stopped again. I continued squeaking - I could just see his tail flickering through the trees. Finally I shook some leaves on the tree I was in and he turned and came in on a trot. I pulled back when he passed behind some trees. He came around and stopped - looking for that warm, furry critter he'd heard. He was facing directly at me, about 30 yards. There were a few limbs but it looked good. I put the pin on his throat and let er rip.

I lost track of the arrow, but did hear it hit some branches - there was a pile of them right behind him, thought maybe it passed through first but the way he took off I had my doubts. Finally got down, found the arrow with one white hair on the broadhead cry

Followed his tracks for a while and only found a few drop of pee - guess at least I scared the [PoorWordUsage] outta him!

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
