    That’s a lot of snow…
    Didn’t see a deer all day. Buddy shot a doe this morning and we spent over an hour looking till blood trail ended.
    Got food plots fertilized during mid day before the rain moves in tomorrow with cold front, then hopefully cooler temps next weekend

    Scott, I see tapatalk did the same thing to you – repost your message four times.{#emotions_dlg.mathews_doah}Yep we got a bunch of snow but today it got up to 57 out so it is melting good. Suppose to be in the 60′s next couple days so hopefully a lot of it will be gone. One of the ski areas about 10 miles from me got over 5 feet. How about hearing from some of the other teammates.{#emotions_dlg.eusa_shhh} Anything been going on?

    Sorry I haven’t checked in for a while. 3 1/2 feet of snow in October? That is insane!{#emotions_dlg.mathews_brick_wall}

    Hoping to get into stand this weekend for the first time this year. I havent had time to even go pull camera cards in over a month.

    I did go to Canada fishing a week ago. I go with a group of good friends every fall. My friend Bob and I musky fish for the majority of the week and the other guys like to jig for walleyes and cast for northern pike. Here are a couple pics of what I caught for the week. The musky bite was good the first 2 days as Bob and I caught 4 the first 2 days and then ol mother nature brought us down to earth. Not even a follow the rest of the week. Musky fishing can be very humbling. Oh well, a bad day/week of fishing is still better than a good day/week at work.{#emotions_dlg.mathews_big_smile} First pic is a 39″ musky. Second pic is a 36″ musky and the third is a 33″ northern pike. I hope to have pics and some points to put on our score this weekend. Good Luck Guys!

    Nice bunch of fish Ritch. I’m hoping to get back into the woods this weekend now that some of the snow has melted. Hopefully there will still be some deer alive. They don’t know the number yet but they estimate the dead cattle in my part of the state to number in the 10′s of thousands because of the deep snow. Not sure if the deer survived or not.

    Another weekend approaching. No luck the past 2 weekends with only 1 deer within bow range and he wasn’t big enough. Hopefully this weekend will be better as temp’s are finally starting to cool off some. Next weekend’s temp.’s look even better but my little boy will have a birthday party some time during the weekend so not sure how much hunting I will get to do that weekend.

    Finally got into a stand this weekend. Saturday morning saw a couple does but no shots. Shooting a doe is at the top of my list. There are 3 of us that hunt this particular section and we all try to shoot a doe. We no longer have an earn a buck in our area but we still try to practice taking a doe or 2 each year.

    Sunday morning I sat in another stand and had deer walking past me before dark(food to bed). Then about 6:45 I had this joker walk past me at 23yds. I couldn’t make out his rack right away in the low light but managed to grab my bino’s and get good look at him and new right away what buck it was. My neighbor sent me a pic of him earlier in the week and we all decided to give him a pass for another year or 2. He looked much better up and close than the photo shows. He is around 19 to 20″ wide and good mass. split g2 on the left side and possibly a long brow(8″ or better) on the right side. I hope he can make it thru our 9 day gun season in late Nov.
    ????

    He also sent me a photo of the buck that is at the top of our hit list. I had a run in with him last year at 31yds and got away without me shooting.

    This is a pic of him from last year.

    I hope to get back out possibly on Friday and then I am off of work Oct. 30 thru Nov. 6.

    Good luck guys

    Good job Scott! On the board finally. I’ve been out once since our big snow. Over a 9 day period we got 4 1/2 to 5 feet of snow. It was tough hunting because all the bushes were flattened to about 1 foot tall and covered with snow. Kept falling thru and it was like having your foot in a trap. ( forgot my snowshoes at home). Our rifle season opens nov. 1 so it is going to be tough hunting from here out. Still hoping to score a nice one yet.

    That’s going to make for some very tasty tenderloins. Makes my mouth water!

    Way to go Born2Hunt!

    Still looking to deflate a doe. I got out Saturday and Sunday morning and saw plenty of deer. The only shots I had though were of either small bucks or even smaller nub bucks. I start vacation Wed. Oct. 30 thru Nov. 6 and things are starting to heat up in our area as far as pre-rut activity. I did get some good news yesterday as my neighbor finally got pics of the giant 7 to 8 yr old buck we have been after for the last 3yrs. We know he is at least 7 as we have pics and sheds antlers(i have at least one shed and match sets from the last 4yrs) . We were beginning to wonder if he was still alive. We named him crabclaw after we started getting recognizeable pics of him in 2009 when he was just a 9pt with a crab claw g4 on his left side. He has been a 10pt since. I am so hoping to at least get a glimpse of him in the next couple weeks but he is just a ghost obviously with his age.

    The good stuff is just beginning, Good Luck Guys!

    Good luck with him Ritch, with the rut coming on hopefully you will get a crack at him.
    We have 1 weekend left of bow only hunting, the next 2 weekends is youth rifle season and then regular rifle season opens statewide.
    I finally got a decent buck on camera from this last week that I will be after this weekend. Solid 10 pt. but only picture I got is middle of night and only from neck up. He appears to be either 3.5 or 4.5 going off antler size and mass.
