I got in a tree. Spent a day and a half climin up there and building a platform for my new chair (the lawn chair from Amazon.com. Now I have spent more time in a tree this past 4 days than any monkey at the zoo and I half to show for it is a sunburn (i cut back the brush with a polesaw and funnelled him right toward the catnip. I think he stopped by on the third night as I heard something near the banana filled catnip toys. Sounded like he might have been battin them around for a spell ...testin em out...but I couldn't find my night vision and I didn't want to spook him off. SO I sat there and listened. I took me a 2 liter to pee in and used it so i could stay in the tree. just shy of 24 hours straight. Now all the limbs I cut left me exposed to the sun from 8 am to 11 and I had nothin on but a v neck (i am very hot natured) and as luck would have it I dosed off the next morning from being up all night. I got a hell of a sunburn. I am going back out in a few days. But i think the catnip was a go. I'll up date this with a few more points later in the week.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
