Joined: 2/10/2008Merry Christmas Guys! It sure has been a fun team we had this yearDidnt get anything this weekend but I did get to do a little more scouting at the conclusion of my hunt on Saturday… I think I have a good plan picked out for this weekend if the weather and deer cooperate maybe I can put some points on the board!
Hope you guys had a wonderful Christmas with your families!
ReggieMathews Switchback XT!Had a nice hunt this past weekend… had a doe and a 6 point buck come out at about 75 yds and feed around until right at dark… I was in a 4 point on one side restriced area for public land so the buck was off limits but the doe did come to about 50 yards right at last light… I just didnt feel confident in the shot so I refrained. Hard to see in a ground blind at last light on a max range shot… just seemed like it wasnt meant to be.
Going to my dad’s lease for the weekend (the one where he shot the 8 point in the post above). Should be my best chance to take a nice buck for the rest of the season. I will continue to hunt my other public land spots until the season ends but I think this is my best shot for a really nice buck with no pressure. Hope you guys had a great New Years… keep us posted on if you are still hunting or not.
ReggieMathews Switchback XT!Good luck this weekend Reggie!
Winter bow kicked in for us January 1st. I have this Friday and 2 Fridays from now off to go up to our camper for 2 long weekends. I will also be hunting some other places on the other 2 weekends of January. At this point I’m looking to put some more venison in the freezer!
Keep us posted everybody and good luck if you’re still out there.
Joined: 2/10/2008Good luck! I have put the bow away for the year. Deer are so pressured in PA by now it is not worth the time for me to hunt them with a bow anymore. I have taken my flintlock out a couple times but now shots. I have one last day planned to go in 2 weeks!Well fellas… 3 days of hunting and didnt even see a deer… That’s hunting… but I still have 3 more weekends to get it done… I’ll be back on the public land for the next 2 weeks and then I might make one more trip to my dad’s lease on the weekend of the 25th.
Good luck to any of you guys still out there!
ReggieMathews Switchback XT!Keep at it Reggie
I took a nice doe this weekend. Already got her back from the butcher last night and had fresh chorizo on the grill last nightHeading back over to my dad’s lease this weekend… Friday thru Sunday… It will be my last chance to put points on the board for the contest (even though I’ll be hunting another 2 weekends after this one to the contest for not showing love to the southern boys)
Weather looks to be favorable and hopefully I can put some meat in the freezer!Mathews Switchback XT!

I’m just hoping I see something…
The last time we had a very slow weekend with sightings…
Weather should be favorable but there is a full moon on Sunday so I may have to do an all day sit on Saturday…
I won’t have internet over there but Ill try to keep you guys posted on my phone!Mathews Switchback XT!Good luck Reggie! I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you!Nothing yet guys but i still have the rest of the afternoon and tomorrow morning… My dads buddy saw a nice buck this morning but no shot… Ill keep yall posted when i fling an arrow!Mathews Switchback XT!Well guys… I spent almost 18 hours on stand this weekend and didnt even see a deer… between the 5 hunters we had in camp only 1 deer spotted… I dont know if it was the full moon, the warm weather, or just late season pressure.
I still have 2 more weekends of hunting and I may fill my tags but unfortunatly the points won’t count for this contest. I’ve tried in the past to get this fixed but they don’t want to change it. I just don’t think its fair to allow early entries for guys hunting out west but not allow late entries for us southern boys that have late seasons… Oh well.
I’ll keep posting any updates I have over the next 2 weeks and we’ll know if we would have been the true champions or not.Mathews Switchback XT!Good luck the next couple weekends Reggie. You were out there and tried, that’s all that matters! We put up a good fight this year!
Location: Ms.Well guys, I have had another year with little to no luck.
I have 1 last day till our season closes which coinsides with the cutoff date on the contest.
Was planning on giving it one last attempt but my sinus have been getting worse for a week so not sure if I will make it out or not tomorrow.
If I do get to go I will take the 1st legal deer that gets close as I need the meat in the freezer for the long summer ahead.
It has been a pleasure being on the team with all of you and congrats to the ones that have had a good season.
