  2. Just thought Id update with a final outcome. I spent 5-6 hours looking Saturday night and several more hours on Sunday looking. Ended up giving up my hunt on Sunday in favor of spending more time looking for the deer despite there being little chance of the meat being salvageable with over night temps that didn't get much below 50 degrees. In all my looking I found no additional sign after the blood trail ran out after about 15-20 yards. Once the fog set in Saturday night everything started getting wet so the blood I was finding was already starting to get watered down. The moisture in th

    My friend Mr. Velvet came into the yard today shortly after 3 does left. I was wondering with all the shots I heard this last weekend if he was still alive. Maybe his small rack has kept him alive.

  16. so first impressions of the little blackstone. I love it, I still need to pick up the bigger model. Everything I have made on it has turned out awesome. I dont quite have eggs dialed in yet but not being able to set the temp different on each side makes it a little difficult to cook eggs and say bacon at the same time unless I just scramble them. That's about the only down fall of the 22". I do have some issues with it igniting some times but once its up and running no issues even in the wind.

  17. If I lived closer I'd bring a mineral rock over and throw it in the woods for you. That way you'd have deniability. They're even on sale at Fleet Farm Trophy Rock I can see where the big white salt blocks will attract attention buy the mineral rocks could go unnoticed. Even a bag of mineral might work. It dissolves into the soil after awhile but the deer still will be attracted to it. Another idea is go hang a bird feeder just inside the woods. If they ask tell them you didn't think they'd mind watching birds since they won't hurt the lawn. If your neighborhood i

    Salt lick deer traffic

    Geez, I feel for ya @fisninfool! Sounds like a nice place where you’re staying. Management can get a little funny about things like that for either good or not so good reasons. I’d think they’d be more concerned about the salt burning out some of the manicured lawn and maybe the deer making a mud ring around it, not just the droppings. Those lawn guys can run over [PoorWordUsage] in a heartbeat but mowing and trimming is a time sensitive thing they probably didn’t want to explain because it sounds petty. Grounds guys hate mowing around things and like to see they’re work look li

    mule deer?

    I sent pictures to a North Dakota wildlife biologist and he forwarded them to a Minnesota biologist. They agreed it was a mule deer. The Minnesota biologist added that a handful of mule deer have been harvested in Clay county (the Moorhead area.) The only bummer was my not realizing what I had and getting better pictures. I don't have a picture of the tail, but do remember black fur back there.

  29. Yeah I looked right away. A lot of deer bed there so could have easily been a different one. I saw no signs of blood in any of the beds. Planning to look one more time before I have to head home. This one has me stumped.

    Blood trail ran cold

    Good advice here. Things look much different in the daylight. Hopefully it didn't get bumped. They can go a long ways. Hopefully it bedded down and expired. Sometimes you just have to grid search. Get some help if you can. More eyes the better. If there is water close look there. Good luck.

  31. Its hard to say, 1k miles in mud and beaten on could be worse than a well maintained machine with 5k that saw easy use. I always look at the seat, the exhaust pipe and tires. If the seat is worn, has holes etc it been ridden hard. If you can still read the logo and it doesn't have any rips or tears that says a lot. If the exhaust header pipe and muffler is rusty its seen a lot of mud and water. If the tires are not OEM it had the original tires worn off. What did they replace them with and why? If they replaced it with big mud tires they rode in mud etc. Talk to the owner, make s

  37. The Outlander is more expensive, but also comes equipped with more accessories like a 3500 lb winch and hand warmers for both driver and passenger. I've read that in previous years, the Outlander's front shocks may be too soft and bottom out easily, but there's not enough info about it for 2021 yet, so maybe that's not an issue anymore. Being Polaris is a MN company carries some weight with me, even if they're built in Iowa, and I believe parts and accessories are more readily available for the polaris. The polaris is around 70lbs lighter, but the Outland

    Salt lick deer traffic

    I don't think the traffic would create too much an issue...probably nothing more than is already coming through the area. The lick may make them stop for a longer period in the summer/spring months.

    Blood trail ran cold

    The sad truth about archery hunting is that sometimes they just get away. I've shot a couple over the years that had evidence of being hit previously with no apparent long lasting injury. Hopefully that's the case with your deer. Kudos for searching as long as you did.

    Blood trail ran cold

    The crack you heard was either a rib or the bone the broadhead stopped in. Looks like meat blood, not organ blood to me. If it’s a high entrance and no exit the body cavity will have to fill with blood before you get a good, reliable blood trail. Also in that case when the deer is moving fast what little blood comes out will be spread over a long distance. You almost have to predict where the deer is going and look ahead. Take a string/thin rope or whatever you have (The longer the better) and leave one end at first blood, then play out the string at any blood, hair or l

  44. Thank you all for the business over the past years and yes I'm still sharpening. Here are the prices and details for sharpening. 10" Nils $30 8" Nils $25 6 and 4.5" blades $20 Add to that the cost for return shipping back to you. I prefer to use Priority Mail through the US Post Office. So whatever it costs you to send me the blade, include that much for return shipping. Include the payment of cash, check, or money order in the box with the blade along with a phone number. Be sure the return address is legible. Also please package the blade so its not going to cut through
