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!

    •   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
    • 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?
