Saw 3 bucks today. One small buck cruising, one six dogging what appeared to be a hot doe. Had a young but decent eight come through tonight at 30 yards that I passed on. Woods certainly haven't exploded yet but it's getting there slowly.
Success was lower than I expected, but my partners will make up for it this weekend!
While spending time out there during the DS hunt it was said during Thier fly over this past winter, the over winter population was at 16 dpsm. A far cry from the 25 to 30 we've been feed for the last 18 years.
I can believe those numbers.
Long term average is 8% success. Less deer, lower number of hunters (1st season), and a lower herd = a 4 % success. Seems right.
This weekend I think will be a little better with more hunters. Any how, I will most certainly enjoy this yearly pastime.
Good luck to all!
Here's a vote for the Frabill "Quick Tip" series of rods... I have two 32",love em for pannies. Super sensitive and around $30.00 I believe.
Well that's just super. I'll certainly email whomever we need to, but worst case scenario we could just go on Dixon lake couldn't we? I always kind of wanted to try that lake out anyway...
......or keep voting for either of the two major parties and expecting change.
