    Camera Position for buck intel

    All day sit yesterday…saw one doe @ 7:30am…snowed all morning and then some dusting later on during the day…the lack of movement yesterday told me most of the bucks are in lock down…hard to be in their bedroom and not see anything..got into my stand @ 5:45am…it was a nice clean entry although...

    Camera Position for buck intel

    been back in Michigan catching up on things around the house so I got my first hunt in yesterday and I missed a 43 yrd shot…this buck was a Jim-dandy…135+ couldn’t pass him. He actually jumped my string and I barely went right over his back. It was 11:20am and this crossing heats up every year...

    As I’ve mentioned on many of my set ups…bucks especially are creatures of habit so try and set up where he’s been the most..be ready and don’t draw your bow at the last minute when the time arrives - draw while you can undetected and in anticipation of where you expect him to go

    With my pictures I try and keep track of movement and wind direction…I’m about to make my first move on Freight Train here back at home for the first time…I’m more concerned with breeding scrapes located close to bedding areas…remember don’t give up on a crosswind that cuts your stand location...

    It’s been a great season…a spent lot of time scouting and hunting by myself…it gave me time to get deep in the word and persevere a health issue and get back out there to do what I love. Archery has been in my blood since I was 8ths old and the sport has always been rewarding and mainly fun...

    Apply my friend…you won’t regret it…it’s tuff hunting, but your going to see mature bucks during November. I hunted hard during October and saw many 2yr old bucks but the sign was there. Large tracks that never walked in front of my cameras but they are chasing right now as I’m writing this...

    Well here’s the humbling story regarding Issachar. Nov 1st I didn’t go out for an all day sit, in fact, I was headed to state ground for a mid day to dark sit until I talked with my brother on the phone that morning about going back to my lease property. Well he convinced me to let the rut...

    Well guys When I look back at all the pre season scouting and observed many bucks on state and private…that was fun and enjoyable. Took plenty of good film and pictures what a blessing. On the other hand, My brother tells me I’m wrong and the bucks are there, well 11 cameras on 355 acres paints...

    ya been out this morning and haven’t seen a deer yet. Heck all the 2.5 yr olds I’ve passed up this month here makes me wonder…should I have put the smack down on one. Well the weather is warm and the rut will surcumb to a twinkle of what it should be. I’ve had a great time here but I bellieve...

    Ya although l love hunting eastern weather fronts it’s been warm and limited buck movement. A good indicator is the bucks you capture during nite time hours. Those bucks always show themselves So you learn what’s in and around your hunting location…but when bucks aren’t showing up at all during...
