Evening Hunting Trip 10/20/2014

Well it had been too long since I was in the woods and I finally got back out Monday evening. I got out into Loch Raven to a spot I had high hopes for, sitting in an oak tree with acorns falling!  Other than it was a little breezy it was a picture perfect hunting evening.  Well after seeing what must have been a billion squirrels I thought I was going crazy, and no deer.  Finally, around 6:25 or right around sunset when I had pretty much given up and was thinking it was time to just get out of the woods (frustrated).  I heard a stick break off behind me and I turned...

Opening Weekend of Early Muzzleloader 20...

Opening weekend of early muzzleloader season has now come and gone. I know many people put down their bows and picked up their smoke poles in hopes of getting an early muzzleloader season deer.  I haven’t been able to hunt the past week due to having my wisdom teeth out, all 4….

That being said since I knew I would be contained to laying on the couch for a few days, I checked our camera’s yesterday so I could update all of you with some pictures while I am down and out. So below are some pictures we got since the...

Hunting Trip 10/8/2014

Back out in Loch Raven, I hit the woods for a couple hours in the morning and a  couple hours in the evening.  The whole day can be summed up for as slow, and a little boring. But hey, any day in the woods or even any time in the woods is better than work or sitting at home doing nothing. The morning was pretty quite, I heard something walk through the woods before day break and then I had a single smaller deer cut across a clearing that was too my left about 7:30 and i never got a good look at the deer but it was small and moving fast.  Other than that all I saw was a...
