Had a little year and a half come in at 7am ish... Downwind and crossed walk in path and kept going... Cool to experience ground hunting in a marsh/crp area... Later went to check a cam close in area and got within 40 of a small doe with the sun at my back... Good check I'll be trying to hunt that area after working this weekend 2 nice bucks around there just no daylight pics will have to gameplan to move in close to suspected bedding provided they aren't in the corn there... All public land se wi.. tight(bow)strings and good luck everyone this season. I'm pumped!
2021/22 bow hunting reports
Browning3, I see you need to work at shot placement, ahahahaha Nice deer, perfect shot. Way to go. 40 yard run post shot?
Overall it was very slow for me the past weekend. The weather was great, just not for deer hunting. I saw a ton of deer one day and then very few the next. Almost no rutting activity around us other than a few new scrapes and rubs popping up overnight daily. I saw two nice bucks but neither presented a shot and with the blowing wind calling was pointless. One nice 10pt around 1:30pm on Friday and then a nice 8 pt around 2:30pm on Saturday. My cousin ended up getting two does to fill the freezer, so not all was lost.
Great weekend in the woods if you were hunting squirrels, they were all over the place. Deer not so much, saw two all weekend. But blew my chance, had an 8 pointer at 25 yards Friday morning, just flat out missed a standing shot. No excuses ............. Back at it next weekend, I'm no quitter !! Just a lousy shot.
Younger brother and I scored on bucks this weekend. Between that and my birthday I had a long Monday today. We have had a good season. Older brother is king for this year.
Nice bucks guys. Congrats to all who have scored a deer, and good luck to anybody still at it. Some of the best hunting is yet to come for those who are willing to keep grinding.
Sat tonight and had one doe trot by. She was on a mission to get somewhere. About 10 minutes later there was some activity in the brush/marsh grass that I couldn’t see. Did hear several bleats though. By dark all was quite. Warm enough to bring out a few mosquitoes.
Dave, that’s definitely one for u both to be proud of!!!
Morning sit in jefferson Cty. got in stand at 5:54. At 5:57 heard steps coming right at me. Single deer about 10 yards away, couldn’t see what it was. Reached for my bow and he (assuming) busted me. only deer all morning. still no grunts, chasing, fighting, etc. to date. Weird.
My son got his biggest buck yet Friday morning. Must have been a hot doe near by. This buck came by twice searching. Second time was 20yrds! He made a great shot. After we watched it tip over a huge 11 walked out and stood at 20yrds. He caught me trying to get another bolt in the xbow for me! O well great morning with my son. I saw several small bucks pushing does around. They r cutting the corn right now and I think the mature bucks r now in lock down. This weekend will be fun. Cold temps and corn will be down.
