We have a lot of squirrels here and we have the Eastern Fox tails the greys and those darn noisy reds in the pine grove across from where we hunt. About 30 acre pine plantation, reds all over the place.
The woods at my son in laws has hickory, oak, basswood and a few maples. Everything is after the nuts and acorns. Big flock of toms and jacks yesterday when going to the stand. Turkeys running and flying over and around me. Noisy for a minute or so.

Wednesday I saw flock of about 20 hens and 300 yards further into the woods I ran into a flock of 20-30 toms and jakes so 50 plus birds within 10 minutes! They roost many days accros in the pine plantation wow is it noisy when you are setting in the early AM and they all start coming down to the ground!

3 passes, wow, that is amazing

Well back to the world of internet now, had a great 6 days in camp. Was very cold and snowy opening weekend but we saw 47 deer but didn't take my gun as I had 2 shooters in my nephew and The Boy. It was my nephew's first hunt after finishing his hunters safety at the age of 19 a few weeks ago. He tagged a real nice doe Sunday morning. The Boy sits with me on his mentored tag and passed many opportunities on does and fawns (we don't shoot fawns if we can help it) and yesterday was our last chance to hunt before packing for the trip home. Saw a flash of a deer going south right as we were getting set up at first light but no shot opportunity. At 8:30 he spotted a deer coming in from the west he saw it was a spike and took a long poke and it didn't look like it was hit so we made a plan to wait a half hour then go look. About ten minutes later we caught movement from the south, looked and could see it was a fork he waited till he thought he had a good shot and took it the buck started trotting I said shoot again he did and it bucked hard and started running I told him to put another one in it and as he shot it fell and kicked. Turns out he missed the spike completely and hit the fork on the second shot, quartering away hit liver, lung and heart. When we walked up on it it was in fact a small 6 he is still riding the thrill of his first 6 point buck and must have called everyone we know to tell the tale. I'll go out near home this weekend and see if I can fill a tag or two.

Probably not a 2022 Wi buck. We don't have tags like that. Unless that is some sort of taxidermist tag

I still haven't seen a deer this week but yesterday was a success as my 10 yr old nephew got a buck his 1st year hunting. My dad mentored him as I walked around & tried to kick up deer. 50 yards through the heart. It was neat to see how enthused he was about helping after getting the deer. Some kids all they want to do is show up, pull the trigger, & head home to the television. This was a real rewarding experience for all of us involved.

Finished cutting and grinding burger yesterday and making plans and changes for next year- trading in hides for gloves at Groeny tonight. We took 75 lbs into Lake Geneva Country Meats for sticks and sausage- some good eats for icefishing.

Congratulations, that is a real nice buck. I'm sure it will be the first of many.

Not my biggest buck, probably my smallest actually, but lots of good meat for the freezer. I ordered a 3/4hp meat grinder from Cabelas, looking forward to putting it to use.

Set up on my grandma's land behind my parents' house this afternoon around 2pm. Very overgrown from the last time I was back there, didn't have many places I could actually get a shot, but wanted to sit the last few hours of season. After sitting on my butt for an hour I needed to stand up and give my butt a break. This guy snuck up on me, was probably within 50 yards when I stood up, but I finally saw him the same time he saw me at about 40 yards. He was in some thick stuff, but after I stood still enough he wasn't worried about me, he stepped into a small window and I let the .30-06 bark. He only made it about 30 yards. First buck I've got with my gun in a few years.

This one along with a nice doe I got with my crossbow the weekend before gun season, feels good to have some meat in the freezer! Hope all had a good safe season.
