Corn and sugarbeets huh? 

Corn and sugarbeets huh?  just add a little spice, and the deer should be prepped already when you shoot them.... Wink

 

Good luck.  Love to see you get that 180" buck!  But, a doe will eat just as well..... Yes

I was out this evening, the 18th and didn't see a thing. I had 2 others buddies hunting on the same property and they didn't see any either. Must be that October lull. Depending on the weather, I will either be out again Saturday morning or evening or both.

I was out this Saturday

I was out this Saturday morning and tried some rattling and grunting for the first time this season. I didn't see any deer at all. I did see some turkeys on my way out and almost shot one of them, lol. Driving in I saw a 2 1/2 year old 8 point. My next time out won't be until Monday evening. Hopefully with a fresh pile of corn and crushed sugar beets made by "The Crush" it will bring those does in. Then the big 180" that has been hanging with those does the first 3 weeks of the season won't be too far behind. Good luck to all!!!!!

PA HUNTING

Well I've been on a 9 day trip to my dads place in PA and after 4 times sitting in the woods I finally saw some does coming when they got spooked and took off. I heard some noise and saw white sneakers walking past one of our posted signs coming right towards me. I informed he was trespassing and apologized and took off but by the time he was done stomping away it was getting to dark. I did have a blast, literally grouse hunting and scouting some property I use to hunt 18 years ago

I haven't hunted grouse in years. But, they are some of the best tasting birds I have ever ate.

I was out this evening and the only thing I saw was a doe that had a button buck with her. The button buck gave me several opportunities to take him but I gladly passed. The doe, the one I wanted to shoot got as close as 18 yards but never gave me an opportunity.

18 yards and no shot?  What type of trees/brush are you hunting in?

You keep getting close.  Hopefully you'll stick one soon.....
