How do you hunt?

Typically I use an improvised ground blind but that was back home. I'm looking at a tree stand this year because the chopping I'm looking at is pretty grown over (3-5 yr growth - about 5ft high) and I'll have to see over it.

Not all of us get to hunt Newfie moose - I'm fighting with SERM now to try and keep my Sask resident hunter status. It's not my fault that the Navy doesn't have any postings in Sask...something about needing an ocean.

How do you hunt?

When I am bowhunting I hunt from a treestand about 18 to 20 ft. off the ground. I used to bait, but it is illegal in Wisconsin now because of CWD. I use Buck Lure Supreme and Tinks 69.

Tree stand, both gun and bow. I'll find an area that looks good via terraserver aerials and topo's, find a funnel and sit tight. I have used scents with little success. Baiting is not hunting.

How do you hunt?

I have lots of ways that we hunt hounds, tree stands, 5 step, but favorite is the rainy dirty weather. Do a search before the season for scrape lines . And watch them on rainy days, the bucks seem to to get confused on the time of day, they seem to move a little later than they normally would.There's something about out smarting an old buck.

How do you hunt?

During bow season, I always hunt from my climber, but during rifle and muzzleloading season, I prefer to hunt from the ground.

How do you hunt?

I do a bit of everything... depending on the sitution, weather, area, etc.
I usually sit the morning, still hunt or drive the mid day, and sit the evening. We hunt bow, shotgun, & muzzleloader here in MA. We use climbers, ladderstands, and ground blinds.
