  1. Late Season Goose Hunt

    We managed to get and find a patch of corn that was above water, but big muddy mess just the same. In the morning we had a couple flocks come in but didn't want any part of us, they seemed to want to stick to water. In the afternoon we rearranged our set up a bit, and brushed in the blinds a bit more. We had a single come in that buddy nailed and a small group of 5 that we only managed to take 1 thanks to my superior shotgunning skills...ha. Overall there weren't many birds flying where we were.
  2. Late Season Goose Hunt

    Late season goose always seems to creep up fast with the opener this Saturday. There were few birds flying in the fall so hopefully we'll make up for it. Good luck for those planning on getting out!
  3. Otters in port D

    I wouldn't doubt it, never used to see beaver this far south, well at least not the kind that chew trees. See them occasionally moose hunting and they are neat to watch. Cool pic of the Mink Smerch.
  4. coyotes

    That's a shame gunner. Hopefully you put a hurt on them! Haven't been out myself but hopefully soon.
  5. Yote down

    Congrats, that is a good looking yote for sure. Yes it would make a nice mount for sure. I saw a big black one during the November deer hunt and plan to try for him over the holidays.
  6. what animal is this??

    LOL! Good point, maybe a more detailed inspection is in order.
  7. Gas

    You're right Smerch, it is part of the Liberal's grand "double down" plan on wasteful, non-effective, non-productive and non-sensical feel good programs that warm the hearts of Liberal voters. Fuel that comes from nice clean fields of corn instead of nasty oil sands! Guess they must think that all the farm equipment used to cultivate the land, plant the seed, fertilize, the fertilizer itself, harvest crop, transport to ethanol plant, energy to produce the ethanol, transport to market , is all powered by rainbows and sunshine! Not to mention the negative affect on fuel efficiency and the cost of all the damage being done to gas powered vehicles and equipment. Plus you can eat corn but not oil! Just say'n.
  8. what animal is this??

    Smerchly might be the winner! Smerch you had better check for trail cams next time as someone might be trying to identify the culprit! My second guess would be raccoons as they like to frequent one spot for a latrine.
  9. Controlled Deer Hunt

    This year was our best year in quite a few years. Lots of deer seen and shot. The second day of the hunt in the early afternoon I was doing a few grunt calls. I noticed a bit of white on the far side of a hedge row dividing a hay field. Checking with my binoculars it was the the biggest buck I've ever seen coming across a field towards me, I could hardly hold the binoculars on him my heart was pounding so hard! It was now moving slowly, cutting on an angle to my left along the hedgerow about 200 yards out . I had my sights on him waiting for him to step through an opening just before the bush line, but instead he stepped into the bush. I'm pretty sure he circled me in the bush to get down wind. contemplated getting out of stand and trying to cut him off in the bush but thought I'd make to much noise, and rather hoped that he give me a shot. Unfortunately I didn't see him again. On Wednesday around 7:30 am, again after making a couple of grunt calls, I spotted another buck , much smaller than the day before, working it's way across the same field towards me. This time he kept coming. When he was around the 100 yd and quartering towards me I made a soft grunt stopping him in his tracks. I put the cross hairs on him and squeezed off a shot. He ran about 50 yards back into the field and dropped. Buck down, a nice six pointer! Of our gang of 5 we all tagged out, with 2 being taken on Saturday which I wasn't there for. I keep thinking of that big buck. Should I have chanced a shot, should I have tried stalking him. I guess I'll never know, but I hope that he passes along his genes one more year and I get a crack at him next season.
  10. Outboard Stolen

    That's a shame. The other half of the problem is the people that are willing to buy the stuff!
  11. Bison Revenge

    Seeing that Indians used to take them out with stone tipped arrows I would think that a 338 anything would be more than enough. Sounds to me like it was just a bad shot?
  12. Bison Revenge

    That's crazy. I never realized that they got that big either. I'm sure he'll get good mileage out of that story. Sounds like he learned a lesson the hard way.
  13. Controlled Deer Hunt

    Good luck up north gunner!
  14. Controlled Deer Hunt

    Well, only a couple of days left to go before opener! Unfortunately we haven't had much time to prepare, managed to set up a new ladder stand , brushed in a pop up, and spruced up some existing tried and true stands, but that's pretty much it. Wanted to get some cameras set up, food plots in, and shooting lanes trimmed this summer, etc. etc. but just never happened. Hopefully the deer won't mind the lack of effort! Looking forward to getting out in the woods on Monday and wish everyone a successful and safe hunt!
  15. big game calibers

    Out of the three I'd get a 270 for deer and a 300wm for moose and elk. IMHO the 7MM and 300 are overkill for deer unless you are shooting them at over 400 yds which is a whole other topic. If the moose and elk hunts are just "maybe one day hunts" I'd go with the 270, which can kill all with a well place shot. Or better yet get a 30-06 for a one gun does all as it can be easily loaded up or down on bullet weights depending on your quarry. And as teedee said the magnums aren't much fun to shoot, unless your really want one, then get a real one maybe a 338wm which thumps you and the moose good, that's what I use just for the heck of it.
