I have the 1st through 12th set aside for hunting as much as possible. Bow hunt 1-3 and rifle 4-12. Maybe a bow hunt that week  on a property that is bow only. Getting close!

I'm not sure when I'll dig in and spend some time in the stand for several days, but it'll be sometime between Nov. 5th and 25th.  I'm hoping to hunt for at least five straight days in that window.

I am taking the 25-27th off and then the next week the 1st and 2nd.  All day sits, so hopefully something walks by.  Then gun with my niece for her first time out as she is now 10.

Think the only things i will do are to monitor the weather, had some hot temps last year, and play the moon peaks as far as when to hunt early vs midday vs late.  Sounds like there are reports of movement correlating with moon overhead and underfoot, as with fishing.

I'll be off October 30-Nov 23, so I know two things; I'll have the rut covered, and a sore rear end from sitting in the stand. Also will kill some ducks in there somewhere I'm sure :D

I've chosen to spend the vacation at rifle camp this year instead of bowhunting.  I have been staying at the rifle camp when everybody is there, but its not a lot of time getting up and driving 45 minutes 1 way to the bow stand and not getting back until later in the evening.  Just something about that time at rifle camp that is special.  

3 years of successful bowhunting also helps to go to rifle camp and relax a bit.....

    • this piece looks good, i interessting recipe for marinade. I make a meat with basil but want to taste new recipes. And one more think - i may advice you while smoking make a incisions if meat very broad
    • You sure seem to say Grill a lot though! 😏    
    • I have an old MES 30that I put a new element in right before I got my pellet grill. I decided that all of the wet chips is what raised havoc on the last element, so now I run a smoke tube that I burn pellets in. The nice part is that I can now do cold smoking
    • You could but that's just another thing and I like to make bigger batches. Like 50 # plus and I like them hanging. The MES is marginal at best for this and I have the cold smoker attachment on that.   If you just want small runs of stuff that might work. 
    • Can you put a cold smoker box on the side of yours? That would be a good set up for sausage, sticks, etc.  
    • Yep.....😊     Nothing wrong with that. I've just decided I like to cook great BBQ as easily and lazily as possible. 😋
    • I'm still keeping the MES until I make my fridge smoker. The Pellet grill is great for some things but I still like a regular smoker for sausages, sticks etc. 
    • No, I wanted both in one package.     A pellet grill IS a smoker and takes just as much time to cook low and slow as any other smoker.
    • Boat prices are INSANE!!! Even used boats are still rediculous.   As far as buying old used boats and rebuilding them for profit, I think you’ll be hard pressed to break even, let alone make a profit (unless you find one for dirt cheap). An old boat is still an old boat even if it’s been fixed up. 
    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker.
