A new season

Recommended Posts

The gun season has one more day, Fall is on the cusp of winter, and it always feels like it's a new season to me with the bow. Feel that I have to start off fresh again--old patterns seem to be gone. The only thing that settles it in for me again is a good snowfall. What about all of you? How do you approach this time of change?

sharpen the auger and charge up the vex.

load the muzzle loader and wax the bowstring.

replace the damaged blades on my muzzy 100 broadheads from the buck and doe I whacked before rifle season.

a few honey-do's to up my cashable brownie points with every intention of cashing them in.

I always hope for a good snowfall and some cold temps and go find a standing corn field somewhere. I also always hunt the moon this time a year. A full moon with some snow makes it look like noon at midnight making for nocturnal movement. There is a new moon on the 27th and a full one on the 12th. From the 19th till the end of the year I will be looking to fill a tag.

I think you hit it on the head, its a completely different season now. The deer will be very spooked after the gun season, there will be less of them, and they'll be concentrating on food - and so should you. I tend to do less morning hunts and more evening hunts simply becasue its warmer in the afternoon. Fun to get out though!

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
