Not much to report on today’s hunt. We only had one deer sighting,which was brief (a buck was running a doe in the bottom below our stand. We only saw a flash). We did find some new rubs and scrapes,and are hopefully getting close to pinpointing these bucks travel routes. We’ll be headed out to a farm out in west TN this weekend for out first rifle hunt of the year. We are expecting good things!
Well,another one is in the books. Kev and I started out today’s hunt pretty optimistically,as we’ve gotten alot of reports of the rut starting to heat up in our neck of the woods. The weather was decent: Cold,no rain,but REALLY windy. We’re talkin’ “I’m gonna climb down right now if another gust like that comes through” windy.
About 2 hours after daylight,we finally got some deer moving, and even got some under our stand. Check out the video to see what happened.
I’m hittin the woods friday mornin… low of 25! Deer are gonna be movin C’mon buddy. I plan of hunting the scrape line Jwo found last Sunday. I’ll give you a play by play starting at 6:00am!
When a buck comes around, he’s gonna hit the ground!
Next in line is Rut Reporter by Field and Stream
This is probably the most innovative app I’ve seen for hunters to date. The premise is simple:Have everyone note when they see deer,and what kind of behavior they witness,an input into a very easy to use app (there is a more detailed web version as well). Then display all of that data on an easy to read graph and boom,instant rut report! By integrating their own articles,tips,and videos into the app,they really do give you a wealth of information to plan your next hunt (or kill some time at the office). Check out some screen shots below of the app in action.
Well,another day in the woods is in the books. Today was not ideal,but I was still expecting more action than there was. It started off at about 45 degrees,but the wind was pretty steady at 10-15 mph. Had a nice flock of hens come trough,which gives me hope for next springs turkey season. Other than that,no deer. I did come across some very fresh Buck sign,so he’s there,we just have to find him. Check out the Video below.
