Isnít that like number 15 this year? How many more are you going to shoot?



You obviously had to take your shoes off to count that high.

Well I know season is over for many of you but I am still after them. As of today I have put in over 100 hours on the stand. I have owned this chunk of dirt for 30 years and I have NEVER seen the deer act like this. I have not seen a deer since Monday or a buck in a week. There is night time movement but none at all in the daylight. I have seen this before and it is nothing new. Today I walked over 2 miles on and around the property hitting known bedding areas. I couldn't jump a deer and never cut a fresh track. Obviously, they are laying THAT tight and that is new to me. This whole season has me scratching my head. I have 80 acres of fresh slash (cut last winter) to the South of me and 40 acres of standing corn to the North. My whole place should have been a travel corridor for the bucks this year. Time for a drink and scratch my head over this.

Yep 160, quite common this year. I've never seen it so slow.


swampgas chili and schmidt beer makes for a deadly combo

I bet they are just in that corn most 24/7. I know it messes up deer hunting big time down here if the corns not picked.

Thank is honestly what I was thinking. Food and cover 24/7 with no travel. I am guessing they won't cut it this year so ther is no sense in ML hunting here. Bears and coyotes do love corn though!

I'm no expert (wait this is the internet so maybe I am) but I agree with mudtracker, it's the corn. We have 500 acres of corn next to us and if the neighbor doesn't get it picked before the season starts, the deer are holed up in it. Luckily we've got enough deer down here (Fillmore county) that you always see deer just not in the same numbers as if it had been picked.

Weíre in the forest zone and the deer havenít been moving here either. Thereís no corn here for them to hide, they just donít want to move for some reason. This one moved this morning and my grandson was able to tag him.

That is an early model 100 too. Most had the oakleaf pattern stock and the plain checkered ones were only the first 2 or 3 years as I recall.

I owned one with the basket weave for a short time. It would jam continuously and it wasnít very accurate, although I donít know of any that were tack drivers. I sent it to a gunsmith for an inspection and cleaning but that didnít solve the problem. I sold it shortly afterwards.

Nice buck for the youngster and he was using a good rifle.!!!! I like the 100's and the 88's.

Great picture. Technically I saw 6 deer this afternoon. A fawn, a doe and fawn, 2 fawns and then my yard fawn that is here all the time. He let me walk to within 10 feet of him tonight while talking to him so I could shake the apple tree for him. He is a cute little buck fawn and hope he makes it 2 more days without getting shot out of someone's car window in my yard. It happens about every 2 years.
