i kicked a buck off his bed, now what?

2 posts in this topic

i kicked a buck off his bed this morning with my truck. he was bedded down with a doe, he got up first. when he got up, i stopped, got out, and grabbed my bow. then the doe got up and they jumped the ditch they were near, casually trotted 30 yards away and turned to look at me for a few seconds. then they trotted off.

my questions are, will he come back? how soon should i go back? how long should i wait to go back? do i hunt that bedding site or somewhere else? can i go back this afternoon or will he bed down somewhere else?

thanks.............

Needle in a haystack at this point.

He was probably tending that doe and will follow her until he gets what he wants, then move on to the next.

Chances are if the "bedding area" was close enough to a drive, its not really a bedding area - just a spot they laid down in.

Spend time in the area but don't focus on that one sole spot. He'll likely be in the area for a while but if you stay on that spot, chances are you'll just be replaying the memory in your head and hoping a dream comes true.

IMO, deer don't care much about vehicles but they do when they see people get out of them.

Good luck and I hope you do catch up to him again. grin

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )
