    Off weekends now with the new job finally. Going to clean the interior of my truck today that is long overdue. Nice and cool today, low 50s. Looks like fall has arrived. Summer went out with a bang yesterday in this area. An EF2 tornado touched down about 10-15 miles from here just in the suburbs of Ottawa and did a pile of damage. Flattened some homes, ripped roofs off, snapped trees and hydro poles etc. After seeing the videos I dont know how anyone wasn't killed. I left work which is only 5 miles from where it hit about 40 minutes before it touched down.

    Trying to/needing to get moved into the new place...…………….which is mostly futile with a busted up foot. So I'm moving little stuff and sorting good from junk in the stuff that I got moved BEFORE I became a cripple.

    We are inching closer to deer season here in Illinois! It looks like a busy weekend for us this weekend. Tonight Emma & Evan want to go to the Highland/Triad football game. It's sort of a rivalry game around here I suppose. We live in Highland, but my nephew plays JV for Triad and it sounds like he will get to dress for the Varsity game tonight. I finally got the parts I need to fix my garage door opener, so will most likely try to re-assemble that tonight so we can park in the garage again. Tomorrow night is the Homecoming dance and my bride has to work, so I have to bring my daughter to get her hair & makeup done tomorrow afternoon. After pictures & we send her on her way we have a wedding reception to go to. Sunday Evan has an away football game and Emma has a JUCO softball showcase tournament in Springfield. How is your weekend shaping up?
  19. This Saturday is Nat'l Hunting and Fishing day. A nationwide event. Check link to see if there is a event taking place close to you. http://www.nhfday.org/Page/Events.aspx This will be my 8th year(representing NY Bowhunters) handling the archery range with volunteers at our NHFD. Our Countys Sportsmans Federation, started it and is sponsoring the event. Fun filled day where everything is free, except food. Kids get free cane poles all set up with bait. Area stores donate. Taxidermists, fly fishing demos, dog retrieval demos ect. DEC declares a no license needed day at this lake. It is all about exposing others to the outdoors. We spend 6 solid hours of helping people fling sticks, bows/arrows and targets bought with grants from the Friends of the NRA. 50% of the money raised at Friends of the NRA events come back to the county in the form of grants promoting the outdoor sports. I am proud to say I am on that committee also in my county. Last year was our largest event with us drawing over 500 people who could care less about the 40 or so protesters outside the hotel protesting the NRA. Anyway, we do pretty good supporting and promoting gun and hunting rights so dang close to the city. The pic is of my future daughter in law, Sammy at last years NHFD event here in Rockland county. This girl was a vegan when my son met her. Now she kills her own food Hopefully one of these events is close to you.

    regrouping pairs or groups

    Why would they not be together? If those backs are comfortable on that land, it must be where they call home in the summer. shed velvet, they may go three miles away, who knows.

    regrouping pairs or groups

    What are the chances a bachelor group or pair that survives a season gets back together at least in part the following spring/summer. Had a buck we suspected was a 1.5 year old 5 pt with no brows last year that during velvet that was regularly running with the mature buck I posted pics of last fall/winter that had shredded his antlers to nubs by mid October. I guessed he was a 4.5 year old last year and posted a thread where guesses from that thread agreed that he was mature. Fast forward to this summer, have a 2.5 year old 6 pt with no brows running with this mature buck we think is most likely the same buck that busted off his antlers early on last fall. The only thing that has me stumped is that last year his left side was typical/normal and right side was a beam and a long brow, this year his right side is mostly normal with a split brow and just a bunch of junk on the left. Some other distinguishing features that have me thinking it is the same buck are an ear notch in the same location on the left ear. Of course if his antlers are shredded by the middle of October again will be pretty safe to say it is the same deer. Hoping he sticks around into season and someone in our family gets a crack at him, even if his antlers are all busted up again this buck being mature will be one to take out.

    Hey guys. Sorry to be late to check in. I hunted the first week of September in Kentucky and passed several nice velvet bucks waiting on a bigger one. I am hoping to get back later this season. I will be in a stand next on October 1st when the New York season opens.
