Lakewood, Townsend, Mountain areas
I sat saturday evening in Lakewood, just east of town. Saw a handful of deer and a nice little 5 pointer. Must have been 1.5 year old because he wasnt smart at all. I could have jumped on him and rode him like a horse several times. If he wants to live he better wise up quickly. lol. No chasing like down south from what I could see. Good to be back out in the Northwoods. -WW
Sat tonight 4 came out right before dark. One was a spike. One snuck into the clover just beyond a pine tree and busted me at dark when I was leaving. The other 3 were heads down in the brassicas.
Most of the leaves are down and deer are back on their normal feeding patterns in food plots. Saw a spike at 7:30 and 4 does in the evening. Was fun watching a big doe try to bust me in my tent from 30' away. She never did but had that nose really high and looked my way forever. It seems like a mature doe will come right at you if it doesn't seem right to her. Thanks to the person who turned me on to earth scent. I have yet to be busted using it!
Are the leaves off the trees up there, opening the views a bit more than one month ago? I was last up three weeks ago and skeets won the contest. Have a great weekend if you are going out. Good luck, y’all.
Don't forget everyone, this weekend is the youth hunt. You have to wear blaze orange like rifle season.
Well I didn't make it up last weekend, but will be heading up Friday evening and hanging in Townsend with the family. Hoping to sneak in a morning hunt or two.
FullDraw05, I was in the woods yesterday and although I only have red oak, I really didn't notice many acorn's. Usually the deer disappear after the leaves drop. It sure seems early. Yet the Asian beetles are early this year IMO.
44/45, acorn crop has been plentiful this year from what I've been told. the "lull" often coincides with the time when acorns are dropping - you need to locate the oaks to see some activity. I have a 5 acre plot with usually 20-30 does at a minimum per night and the last week our cameras have been essentially non-existent.. that tells me their feed bags have transitioned to the acorns.
My wife found a samsung galaxy cell phone on Saturday around 1:00 pm in the middle of the road in Lakewood While we were atv’ing. Was on a side street in Lakewood hopefully someone here can help get it returned
Where did all the deer go? 1acre food plot and no activity?
