James Daughtrey Youth Mgmt Hunt 11/18-19
 
My youngest son was drawn for the youth management hunt at the James Daughtrey WMA the weekend of November 18-19.

Anyone else going to be there?

Yep, we will be there.

Results are in for this past weekend's hunt.

"17 youth hunters have harvested 4 doe, 2 spikes, and 3 hogs on the YDA hunt on both the Daughtrey and North Shore State Park unit hunts. Eleven hunt positions went unfilled. The next youth hunt for this Sat-Sun, Nov 18-19 for management deer."

Their definition of a management buck - "must have 8 or less antler points with an inside main beam spread of at least 12 inches, or must have at least one unbranched antler"

From their FB page, here is a management buck from 2011.

I think my son will be happy with one like him!

I am not showing my daughter that pic. If we get a chance like that great, but I want her to be happy with her first buck/deer!

I'll be in the dirty 3/4 ton chevy.

Don't forget to bring your permits.

Safe travels to all of you!

We won't roll in until the morning since my daughter will be cheering at a playoff game tonight.

Dark grey F150 with TBH and BHA stickers.

See you there!

All, please let me know what compartment you were in and what you saw. Thanks!

Slow&Steady 11-20-2017 11:36 AM

Compartment 10 - My partner (Army of Dad) and I chaperoned our daughters as they hunted there. I saw a single buck (115-120 class 8 point) that didn't give us a shot, and three does (now two) that did. My partner and his daughter saw two undersized bucks and a monster 8 point. She took a shot at the 8 point. We found a small amount of muscle tissue and hair at the site of the shot, but never found blood and could not pick up a trail to follow.

If you're in a lakeside compartment I'd give strong consideration to hunting closer to the water.
It seemed most of the deer were in senderos nearer to the lakeside.

We moved out of the provided blind and set up a pop up to get closer and that worked well enough for a shot.

If you haven't bragged on your daughter I will. Her doe was harvested quite cleanly went nowhere. Way easier tracking job that way!

Honestly, I think deer were killed out of every compartment that was hunted.

Yeah, I was pretty proud of her. Nice and smooth. One shot to the shoulder and she went straight down.

Between Saturday evening and Sunday morning hunts, we saw probably two dozen does and half a dozen bucks. All bucks were 1.5 years old. At 10:50am on Sunday, my son shot a spike with 8" tines.

He was holding out for the 140" 8 pt :D

Bella's doe turned out to be 76lbs field dressed, and was 4.5 years old. She was the largest of the group she was with. She took her just before dark on Saturday, and we didn't see a single deer on Sunday. We saw three coyotes, but Bella passed on them in hope that the above mentioned 8 point would show up.
