Deer camp tomorrow!!

Recommended Posts

The time has finally come. After work tomorrow I'm off to the hunt camp until next Saturday. I was up on Monday for opening day with dad and one other member. We saw tons of sign, probably more moose sign than deer sign. Never saw a thing. Weather was nasty, strong winds with snow and rain all day.

This morning I woke up to 2 inches of snow on the ground. Low of 19 with a windchill of 9 tonight, that should get their rear ends in gear! Looks like Saturday and Sunday are the only days that will come above freezing during the day. All next week is mid to high 20s for highs and 10-20 for lows with some snow in the forecast. 

Good luck to everyone else.

Good luck Shaun.  Have our muzzleloader opening this weekend here.  Catrina gets to go as much as she wants for 9 days.  Weather is gonna be on the cool side here as well.  Might get a few sits in myself and may take Allison again.

Out for my evening sit now. Actually found a spot with a little cell service. Been a cold week, woke up to -20°C/-4°F this morning on the thermometer. And it's sitting around 15°F now. Never remember it being this cold in rifle season! Got a couple inches of snow Monday night. Been slow with the deer though, one of our members got a doe last week and that's it. My buddy missed one earlier this afternoon during a chase. Deer seem to be moving more today so we'll see what the end of the week brings! Oh well, still nice to be out in the woods.

Good luck Shaun.  Sitting in a stand this afternoon here too.  Deer on their feet early, just watched a little buck track a couple does but he was going the wrong way.  Could be a good afternoon.

With the girls having each killed one already and still having quarters from Catrina's to process I let this buck walk a little while ago and shot him with the phone camera.  Think he is a 3.5 year old.

No luck up at the camp, came home yesterday afternoon to see the family and end off the season in the treestand here at the house and hopefully get my daughter out for an hour or two in the ground blind if it's not too cold tomorrow or Sunday. 

Had the dog out for some excersize this morning chasing the skidoo around the field, and noticed a nice size fresh track leading into the woods. Grabbed the rifle and went for a walk, it went over to the neighbors farm. Found a couple runs too. Currently in the stand waiting. We'll see! It's 26 degrees with a strong NW wind, cold front coming in, dropping down to 6 degrees tonight. Maybe they'll get on the move by dark.

Been pretty much like that here too! Last weekend was cold then it warmed up a bit, any signs of rut that were starting to happen just stopped dead. Last weekend bucks alert but nose working ot for receptive does. Tried fake marking territory and scraping with no luck with that at this moment in time. 

Give er get one on the ground!

Well rifle season came to a close on Sunday. The weather was too miserable with the strong winds to get out again. Have bow season til the end of December. Muzzleloader also for the first week of December. May borrow my brothers muzzleloader and give it a try. My last day of work was yesterday, decided to take the voluntary layoff for the winter. Go back sometime in April. So lots of time for hunting and ice fishing! Woohoo!
