How's the Deer hunting going?

Postby Cut N Run » November 3rd, 2008, 4:41 am

Our muzzleloader season opens 11-8-08 and I am ready.  I have a good stand site and all my gear is ready.  I have been to the range and my firearms are zeroed. 
 
I was just wondering if anybody else has already started & how thier luck has been?

Have gotten a little bow hunting in.  4pt, 6pt and doe so far.  Black poweder opened for us 11-1, never saw a deer.  Will be taking my son on 11-8 for his 8th birthday.  Hope the weather is good!

I don't bow hunt, so I am still waiting for the nov 15th opener!!!!!  I'm spending veteran's Day out of work an in the woods.  Another combo turkey hunt/deer scout.  The last day for fall turkey is the 14th and it looks like it's tag stew for Thanksgiving.

Our rifle season starts Nov. 15 also, we have a group of clients coming in for the start of season. We've seen some really nice bucks so far, our neighbor shot a real nice 5x5 mulie with a bow. I'm like a kid at Christmas, I can hardly wait for opening day.

I'm going to take off some time from work today and get my stand hung so all I have to do is show up on Saturday with my muzzleloader and the proper hunting attitude.
 
One of the other guys in the lease saw a good buck last week not too far from where I'm hunting.  They move around so much this time of year, he could be in another County by now.  *fingers crossed for luck*

I killed a 7 point a week ago today with my bow and took a doe Thursday evening and another Friday morning with my CVA ML.

When I got out of the woods from hanging my stand, the property owner told me he saw a pretty nice buck within about 200 yards of where I hung my stand a couple of days before.  He siad it had a tall rack, but couldn't tell how wide it was.  Maybe I'll get a good look at him tomorrow.
