I was reading a post by Arthur over at SimplyOutdoors.Net the other night. He had an excellent post on baiting deer. After reading his post, I found that we have some of the same opinions about baiting Deer.
Well, another Oklahoma Primitive Firearms season has come and gone. Ironic that Oklahoma calls it's blackpowder season "Primitive Firearms" with most everyone using modern inline muzzleloaders!
Going into this Season, many of my friends thought it would be a tough hunt. The Full Moon was on Oct. 26th. As if that wasn't bad enough, there was an historic bumper crop of Red Oak acorns due to a wet Summer. I've never seen so many acorns in our hunting area!
Jack Rosander has done something that not many Montana Mule Deer hunters have done in quite a while, he's put a big non-typical Mule Deer in the Boone & Crocket Club Record Books, and he did it with a Muzzleloader!
Rosander took the big Mulie last year in Eastern Montana at the outskirts of a town called Colstrip.
The Hunter Opinion Survey conducted by the Idaho Department of Fish & Game is out.
This is a pretty extensive survey of Mule Deer hunters. The Dept. surveyed Idaho Mule Deer hunters to see what they wanted in terms of Mule Deer management.
Basically, they want bigger Mule Deer bucks and to be able to hunt the entire season.
Okay, I know I'll probably get flamed for this, but I think it's something that needs to be discussed. I know it's discussed every hunting season by at least one Outdoor magazine and in every Gun Shop and in every Deer Camp.
The topic of these discussions/heated arguments in deer hunting circles is...
In some parts of the country, the bow season for Deer has already opened. By October 1st, most will open or have been opened.
Hunting deer in the early season is a lot different than hunting them later in the fall. A month can make a lot of difference as to where you'll find deer and how they are living.
You can't open a hunting magazine today without being bombarded with ads about the latest and greatest deer scent, deer lures, seed to plant green fields, designer camo, hi tech gadgets and much more. Then, as if that wasn't bad enough, you get to an article and it's some so called Deer Guru talking about how he shot a Mega Buck at 250 yards with his rifle across a green field.
Barry Rose, ex NFL Wide Reciever, bagged Wisconsin's State Record Whitetail buck with a bow last year.
Barry arrowed this 16 point monster one afternoon as he sit in his treestand in Dunn county. This Wisonsin big buck takes over the top bow kill spot from the former #1, Ken Shanes 186 5/8ths inch Buffalo county monster arrowed in 2000. Barry's 16 pointer's final score was 187 2/8ths.
Roger Raglin, his Wife, Darlene, their 20 year old Daughter and their 18 year old Son along with several other people were injured in a boating accident on Lake Erie July 17th.
I'd like to wish Roger and his whole family a speedy recovery. I've watched Roger for years and can't get enough of his shows. I hate to see this happen to anyone.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy your time here. Excuse the mess until I get everything up and running the way it should be. You'll likely see some images and themes changed before I'm done.« go back
