Juneau county reports
9 hunts so far and only 3 does seen! A few rubs and no scrapes by me yet! Just waiting for first week of November when it gets magic out there! Good luck fellow Juneau County hunters! Have 2 giants on camera and they seem to be getting bigger and bigger every year so future by me looks promising
Not much for acorns by me either. Didn't see a deer all weekend. Not much for tracks in the mud around the plots. At least the skeeters were a non issue.
Been out a few times. Lots of does. Bucks seem to be more scarce now in the fields. I think it's them coming out of the bachelor groups. No rubs yet. Terrible acorn crop by me.
Any reports for the 2020 season so far? Heading up after work this afternoon for the weekend.
1st post since last yr. Ill concur with what you are all saying deer population is getting better w more mature bucks running around. Wolves are starting to get out of hand. I tagged out oct 26 full rut action. He came in to some agressive grunting. The gf had a nice 130 140 class 10 point that we had on camera at 15 yrds just never felt comfortable w the shot. Closing the bombing range was disappointing but made for new scouting spots which is always fun. Gun season was a zoo on county lands w what i assume most ppl not knowing the range was closed. My land is on 17 and 4th street so im sure ive ran into some of you down at boondocks. Now its time for some tight lines!
Concluded the 19 season this past weekend. All day sit on Saturday produced nothing. I saw what I believe were 3 different bucks for the season, all of them the week I had off. What looked like a nice 10 chasing a doe full speed and a spike harassing a doe and fawn were the only encounters of any kind of rut I witnessed. Found 3 scrapes all of which showed little to no activity after the 3rd week of October. Lots of hours in the stand with no action. Lots of tracks and lack of daytime sightings would indicate most movement was at night. I had tons of acorns. Saw 3 wolves this year. Couple nights of lots of howling.
There really isn't much else to tell.....
Yeah, I hear you casedog. The daylight pic was from 2017. Sometimes it's hard to tell one deer from the next. New miners within spitting distance of me, not really, but not far. Congrats on the deer.
Lineman- I looked at your pictures a little closer and I’m 100% sure that is not the same deer!
If u look at the browtines they are definitely not the same deer so keep on going after him because he is still out there!
In my experience up there is that every square mile has a giant 8 pointer on it ( seeing them in daylight in a shooting lane happens maybe once every decade)
New miner is definitely the land of 8 pointers!
Out of our mature bucks I would say 90 percent are main frame 8’s!!
