Good luck, PA Hunters, I didnít get a license this year or bid for the non resident doe tag.

Hope you kill a good deer even if Sunday hunting will ruin everything, and destroy the universe because others can hunt three extra days the deer didnít know about.

Good luck today everyone. And stay safe.
I agree Hippie, I have no tags left but I have to sit out back and listen and watch the dawn of another opener.
Hopefully one of the young fellows gets one of the big ones outback.

Good vibes to all. Be safe!

I'm headed out the door to hopefully put a nice buck in front of a young man that hasn't killed his first deer yet.

This is what it's all about, passing along the tradition as time passes by.

Man I LOVE opening morning.


Keep your boots dry and your powder too.

I remember when a fur check was reality.....now I'm just trapping for the love of it.

Best Regards,

JT

Nice shooting grayfox54. PAskinner congrats on making memories with the family.
I sat at my shooting bench till 8. Least shots I've ever herd on opening morning.
I saw 3 doe and a small 7 point across the road from from my house right before dark. Non of the neighbor boys drew blood, but 2 of them saw buck and got shooting.

Every year during the rifle opener I count shots I can hear. This year was a bit better than the average over the last three or four years with 38 the first thirty minutes and 61 the first hour. none were nearby, say a half-mile radius from my location.

I was on stand from well before sunrise until noon, walked home to feed the fire and myself then back out until dark. Two deer all day. One was the big eight-point I have seen a few times in the last several weeks. I saw deer legs walking in the thick stuff and then a right antler... not enough to shoot at. He never crossed the shooting lane and would have to cross a large field to leave the woods so I think he bedded near where I last saw him. He doesn't know I was there, nobody hunts there but me and there's lots of season left.

Passed on a small doe (legal game in 5C).

The birds were very active this morning. Twice a sparrow landed in the end of my barrel. First time he was setting there looking around and when our eyes locked I swear I could read the surprise in his. He dropped off the end of my barrel and free-fell 5-7 feet before flitting away, it was comical, I had to suppress a laugh. I don't know if it was the same bird or not the second time but, if it was, he was just having fun with it.

A large flock of bluebirds hung around my stand for nearly an hour. There was disproportionate number of males, 12-16 in a flock two dozen or more. Even though the males had their muted fall plumage on they were still easily recognizable. Soon after they left a smaller flock of goldfinches came through. The males were 80%-90% changed into their winter drabs but were still recognizable. Then there were the cardinals and doves, a couple of pileated woodpeckers and more. Enough to keep me entertained almost all morning.

The view from my stand near the center of a 40-acre swamp.

Congrats to the successful !!

Things were very quiet around me, very little shooting and very few cars parked along the road. Really surprised me being a Sat. Opener with Bear in also.

I didn't see any Deer, but was entertained by other wildlife none the less.

Congratulations to the hunters who scored. Thanks for sharing the pics too!

Right on, Lugnut and hippie, oftentimes the best part of the hunt is the observation and interaction with the other wildlife. One year I was in an old wooden stand and had a squirrel sniffing my boot, trying to figure out what I was. When our eyes finally met you'd swear he had springs in his legs by the way he bounced outta there.

Same here except for the fox. Great conditions. First and only deer for me at noon. Checked trail cam about 250 yards from my stand and had two bruisers in last two days. One was out walking Thanksgiving afternoon.

I always enjoy seeing other wildlife too like squirrels and birds. One time while sitting in my ladder stand in archery season a Brown Creeper landed right on my knee. It stayed there looking at me for a minute then flew over to another tree, I wished I could have gotten a picture of that!

The other wildlife seems to keep ya entertained through the slow periods. I have an archery stand that has another tree close by...like 4 feet. Had a gray squirrel come up to see what I was doing and just hung on there at head level. Looked like he was going to jump on my stand for a second. Made some pretty cool sounds at me for a few minutes then decided I was no threat and left.

It was a slow day for my group One saw a total of 11 doe but 8 where in the same group .Most saw 1, 2 or 3 . Very little shooting anywhere close .It was a nice day to be out .And I enjoy just watching whatever is happening One of my friends said he saw a red headed woodpecker trying to get something out of a corn stalk .His comment was he did not know they would feed on bugs in cornstalk and had never seen that before .There is something to observe if you just stop to see what it is My nephew and his daughter hunted for about 2 hours until she got cold and wanted to go in .He told me this morning he really enjoyed hunting and hope his work schedule allows him some time to go a few more times during the season .He only took up hunting this year because his daughter wanted to go So hearing that this morning means yesterday was a good day If hes liked it without seeing any deer I guess he would like it better when he sees some .Maybe he will turn into a hunter after turning 50

My son and I hunted from daylight to dusk and didn't see a deer. I saw a ton of squirrels and was thinking that I should bring my 17 HMR next time. We were on SGL near Newville and saw several hunters but not much shooting. Still trying to get him his first deer so the Saturday opener was a blessing, he'll hunt again tomorrow but then his time is mostly consumed with wrestling practice.

I made a venison roast tonight since the wife had to work today. Roasted rutabaga and carrots on the side.

[Linked Image]

I'm down to two roasts, a few blocks of scrapple and maybe eight-nine pounds of sausage from the three deer I killed last season. I better quit screwing around and get one for the freezer. Maybe tomorrow...

Snow?? I'm coming over there guys.

The phrase deer sausage caught my eye. I bought son Con Yeager spices to try,
Maybe we can get a sausage/smoker/snack stick topic going after the harvest.

Good luck everyone.

After an extra nap while a others got in position before daylight, I headed out about 7:00am a little after daylight to push some deer around for others. By 7:30 am my second shot landed close to its mark and was good enough to drop this guy in his tracks. 3A opening morning kill. [Linked Image]

Can you believe no deer showed it's face today? I mean look at this perfect set up.

In front of my stand:

The shooting lane to the right:

I sat from dark until after lunch then still-hunted around the swamp until dark. I saw five deer, no shots were offered.

I couldn't take the lack of hunters in the woods and finally got up and went stirred things up a bit. I was literally kicking the deer in their rear ends they were bedded so tight.

Managed to put a 5 point in front of my buddies son, which his dad let go by him, and he nailed it with one shot. 13 years old and got his first deer.

My year is basically made when I'm able to do something like that.

Passing on the tradition!


Keep your boots dry and your powder too.

I remember when a fur check was reality.....now I'm just trapping for the love of it.

Best Regards,

JT

Didnít see a deer today but was kind of enjoying the scenery, we couldnít make to where we wanted to go this morning so we went to another DMAP area across the mountain. Finally made it up here at the shanty later on after we put about a dozen cement blocks in the back of the truck. Decided just to stay overnight here so I wouldnít have to make that climb in the morning. Southern duke nice buck!!

He was seen a lot by many. I'm sure he has wandered by your place even at times.

Sat in my ladder stand this morning only to leave an hour later I swear that wind was blowing 50 mph, my tree was rocking, ainít worth dying for a deer. Ended up cutting firewood for later, the wind is still howling

I was hunting out of my trap shed that overlooks the woods. My trap shed was built over my chicken coop. the deer kinda sneak along the woods in the the mornings so I decided to keep a watch on that area for a couple hours this morning. Nothing! But it got me to thinking....my wife has 32 hens in that coop, we been only getting 6 to 8 eggs a day. But if a deer did come by she would have 32 eggs today! laugh

I am also tempted to still-hunt through the swamp today. The wind and wet ground are perfect conditions for that but I don't want to move them out of their "safe-spaces.". I'm forcing myself to wait until tomorrow and let other folks move them to me.

Still hunt was my main way until buck and doe got combined. I got shot at twice, enough.
Dang wind switched around this afternoon. Where this guys layin there is no approach on him, just wait down or cross wind. I'm not good at waiting.

Have not seen them chasing since rut round one over here.
I bet you have more doe Pcr. And less habitat loss.
Big parcels have doe, and you pay to hunt those here.

All ;n all pretty good, seeing deer most every shift.
That is more important than tagging out to me.

Was out this morning until 10am didn't see a thing. My buddy did a one man drive we saw nothing. Checked the trail cams we have out yet, all the deer on there are nocturnal now, they're running at 11pm and 5am. heading to another property in the morning for doe season. Hopefully we'll see something there,

Wright Brothers you got SHOT AT TWICE? I wouldíve shot back if someone shot at me twice.

2 different occasions?
Yes.
And I'll just take the 5th on the return.
The stump sitters miss the walk hunters.

What may differ from youns areas is,
doe is open on day one here.
The first few years of that were dangerous,
then they got em thinned down.
All my pards quit within 5 years.

Good luck tomorrow guys.

Got a doe for the freezer about a half-hour before quitting time.

Got my buddies son out today for another mentored hunt. He got it done about 8:45 this morning in the same stand I took him to last year when he killed his first deer.we were 2 for 2 hunting together the last two seasons until this afternoon about 2:30 he missed an 8 point. He was bummed but happy for a clean miss on the buck this afternoon and the doe he got this morning. Was a great day.


Life's too short, enjoy everyday like it was your last.

Thanks fellas. He is a great kid that loves to hunt and I love to take him. Today was a plus because my adult son was hunting in the next stand over from us also. It was the first time we've gotten to hunt together in 3 years because of his work schedule. Just a blessed day in the outdoors.

Some great stories and great deer. Congrats to you all
Managed to arrow a nice 5C doe yesterday. Freezer is full. Passed on a nice young 8 point. Hope we cross paths next year. He should be a dandy if he makes it.

I havenít been on in a while but, wow some nice deer and congrats to you all that got some venison for the freezer. I was able to hunt opening day and then Monday. Saw a small buck pushing a doe the first day around 9am and then didnít see any deer till 330 when 5 doe came through. I had changed stands midday. Monday in the snow I saw a whole bunch of does, so Iím thinking Saturday should be fun. Saw a flock of snow geese midday. I heard what I thought was some sick Canadian geese and a flock of 60-70 snow geese went by. Made my day. Didnít care if I saw another deer that day. I did, it was a yearling 7pt around 430. Didnít hunt Tuesday. But I was able to get out of work early enough Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to hunt my dads field last hour of the day. Saw a button buck and a decent deer after legal shooting light Wednesday off at a distance. Thursday night I saw a small bobcat, probably this years litter. That was cool. Saw a fawn Friday night around 4, and nothing else but squirrels. So I decided to hunt the stand I was in the first two mornings yesterday and had a doe and fawn close enough to shoot at first light but they were just eating acorns, not moving, figured Iíd wait cause I could hear some more deer on a bench or two above me. Not long and a small buck comes down the hill and eats his way to about 50 yards behind me. I can still hear another deer and it comes down nearly the same trail as the first buck and he looked pretty good so I figured If he gave me a good shot Iíd take him. He slowly fed around, but stayed lower than first buck, got under a hemlock and put his head up and was making a scrape, one shot, dropped him with the trusty model 70. 8pt. Pic to come. Lean. No fat on him. Got a horse doe in the afternoon that had 3Ē fat on her. Yesterday was a good day, great hanging weather. Got some work to do today.

Here's a pic of him in the scrape, quick dirt nap. He had a good scrape on his nose and a small gouge by his right eye. Both the buck and doe were full of acorns. I hadn't been seeing many deer since mid October. Don't know where all these deer were from then till now, but it all worked out.

Remind him that a clean miss is the second best shot a hunter can make. Great story!

Wet and warm for tonight's sit. I heard couple of confused frogs croaking at each other. No deer.

I had to process the doe I shot Saturday this morning, it got too warm to leave her hang any longer.

Yeah, except for today the whole week looked great. I figured if I got one tonight it could hang until Saturday or Sunday.

Congrats Goldnut. Good eatings. Good hanging weather, got my deer cut up last night.

Minkless, I was down in state forest in central pa hunting bear and the acorns were few and far between, but had one good stand of acorns at my place and thatís where I lucked out.

I can say that for rifle season, and doe coming in last Saturday, I have heard so few shots itís mind boggling to me. We have strong deer numbers in my area, I have to think that itís just less hunters out.
