Juneau county reports
Congrats on all of the nice deer!! It's officially the longest week of the year for me. It feels like it should be Thursday already. I feel like Santa. Making my lists and checking them twice. LOL
Can't wait to hunt with my two boys. They don't bowhunt, so this is a special time for me. Good luck to all still at it and all that will be out for the 9-day!
Fri Nov 10. Northern Juneau County private land. Well the gf punched her first archery tag fri afternoon with a 7pt (one brow time broken off) 17" inside spread #170 field dressed brute!!!! First yr archery hunting for her. Last yr shot an 8 pt with her first yr gun hunting. She is getting way too spoiled shooting big deer...lol. Got into the blind about 230 and he came walking right into food plot around 4. She made perfect double lung shot about 15yds and he ran about 75 yds or so. I couldnt b more happier or proud of her!!! She starting crying tears of enjoyment and excitement when we heard it crash. Only 2nd time this yr he came n during daylite. He came n at 2pm on last wed.
Yup no haters in Juneau co forest. That one on the left is a very nice buck case. Looks like the other is a Juneau Co 11 pointer. I’ve shot a few of those over the years. After I shot mine I made it out a few times, still have a doe tag, and had several opportunities at bucks pretty much the same size as the bigger one you posted Case. Looks to be about the same size as the one I shot. I’m hoping those make it through gun season. Even with a fresh start for gun I’m only looking for one deer, the biggest one I had on camera all year. Don’t need any more venison so I can be picky. Forecast looks wonderful.
This past weekend was a bust for me. I sat 9 hours on Saturday. The only highlight of the day was listening to the neighbors put up a rifle stand. I can't fathom how at least 2 grown men can make so much noise in the woods. Not to mention the fowl language. They weren't that close to me but with no wind and cool temps I could hear it all. I sat till black and saw one grinner.
Sunday morning I hunted till about 9:30 and saw nothing. Put the bow away and headed for home. Looks like the forecast for Saturday will be pefect.
Yes I do but there only little ones by most standards!! We got up late Friday so we turned heat on in trailer and went shining!! It was amazing-- every green field had at least 6 deer! We stopped counting at over 40 deer which we haven't seen that many in around 20 years!! It was as if there already herding up for gun like they do every year?? Did see 2 giant bucks while shining!! Saturday morning on private While on stand I had a spiker working the community scrape at 9:30 after it was already worked within hours(maybe minutes) of me getting to my stand!! We had a trace of snow and his tracks are right in it and not a drop of snow in the scrape while every other scrape was snow covered so something was there pretty close to when I walk out at around 5:30ish!! Saturday night 1 doe public! Sunday morning I miss a decent 6 on public at 7:15ish( dam branches) and my last bow hunt of the early season last night on public had Bambi all alone at 4 and a unidentifiable at last light!! All and all it was a great season!! I passed on 5 bucks and have zero regret!! Good luck to all still at it-time to pole out the missle launchers next weekend and hunt the hunters because our deer turn into completely different deer when the army of orange hits the woods this Saturday!! Best of luck to all and stay safe!! Attached photo was biggest of the 3 so u get the idea!! We have never been a horn porn camp so all you haters can keep your comments to yourself! Casedog
