I hunted the Gibou this past Friday, Saturday & Sunday didn't see a thing. I came back to Williston and
Yesterday afternoon (Monday the 20th) at 3:15 we saw 3 Deer we knew 2 were Does but the third we couldn't tell for sure.
My Girlfriends son still has a Tag to fill and I think his Deer is going to be another Williston, Vermont Deer.
Yeah, I never saw a lot of deer in the Gibou. I used to hunt Enosburg Mountain from the East Enosburg side. Never saw a lot of sign but some of it was pretty big. I know a guy from Sheldon who used to hunt up there exclusively and he got some big deer. Of course, all he did was hunrt in the fall. I used to live in St. Albans up by the radar site next to Exit 19 off I-89.
Thanksgiving morning my girlfriends son Phillip got this fine 4 Pointer from Williston, Vermont it weighed in 103 lbs. dressed... It's his FiRST year hunting so we're obviously Damn Proud of his first deer... Our taxidermist is Happy too...
When calling coyotes, more often than not they will circle on a target they are
coming into and approach from the downwind side. Presumably they do this in
order to align what they smell, with what they are hearing.
This means that you should always have your downwind side camouflaged and have
an open shooting lane. If the area is heavily covered the coyote could come in
take a look and be gone, with you none the wiser.
