I was surprised too, but the lady I spoke with sounded eager to help and took care of it within 2 minutes.

As of now I only have 1 shooter buck on my lease and if I learned anything from last year, it's that when rut hits, they aren't in my area anymore. So it's public land every weekend (and during the week if the work schedule permits), and every evening possible at my lease since it's 10 minutes from my house.

Lucky dog you! I'm thinking about going to my lease today after work and trying to smoke one. Went to sleep around 2100 and woke up at 2330 to be back at work (stupid customers of mine). Hopefully I can get a nap in the truck this morning so I won't be falling asleep in the stand!

Send us some pics when you recover him!

I checked cameras again today. Nothing too exciting. Lots of does and a few small bucks. Im hoping I can kill a doe right away then give it a break until the end of oct when the bigger bucks will be on the move. Acorn crop looks decent but not as heavy as last year. I prepped a couple trees for stands too.

Yall are a lot braver than me. I've had enough cams stolen on public land. Including one of yours Lee lol.

How's the acorn crop looking this year? I'm planning to go back out scouting a few new areas tomorrow.

For the whole camera incident I just picked up some $25 cams at Walmart, that way if they get taken no big deal. They aren't the absolute best obviously but they get the job done.

As long as they don't make a flash which I hear they won't come back,mine glow red and they notice and even check it out or stand still for multiple shots but then they simmer down, I had a doe put her face all up against it for a close up multi photo shoot, also I have two cams and they have been good except I know one got flooded it was right by the creek, and it was a $140 browning strike force, I'll try to take it back lol! Ready for the opener!!!!!

As far as cameras go, Ive never had one stolen. I dont just put them up anywhere but Ive been running them on public land for years without issues. Im tempted to try a super cheap camera but Ive been so happy with my reconyx and so dissapointed with other cameras that its hard to change. My older camera still has the same AA batteries from last season. Its gotten around 1000 pictures already this year.

Since I'm in college it kind of kills me being able to get an expensive camera. Also just got an email saying I was drawn for a doe permit this year!!!

Hi y'all, do I know anyone here?

Sorry, busy with work, lawsuit, work, rescues,work, mucking out houses, work and more work. I've only shot my bow once this year ( all bullseye's) so I guess I'll have to make it work. Only scouted once this year, might make one more trip. Can't really get in the mood for some reason.
Don't know if I got a doe tag as I haven't checked that email in almost a year. ( No clue what the password even is)
Y'all keep it up. I'll get the bug in a couple of days and make all the effort worth it.

I'll be at my normal lunch spot opening day ( if I'm not skinning a deer again) stop by and say hey.

Go far away from the road, scout in advance, not after the season starts, and sit late. Granted, if you're gonna hunt it this year you better get some scouting in soon. Oak patches and Creek beds can serve you well if you look in the right places. Some of this info may seem common sense, but you'd be surprised how stupid people can be hunting public land.

Wooohoooo, my buddy Mikkel and I both got drawn! Sarge, you're the man, after 7 miles this morning, I was broken...

Highlights for me. 5 rabbit encounters, 2 snakes, and my closest encounter ever with a sounder of hogs at the furthest point away from the truck. There was 10+- hogs, with a couple big ones. I do have my LTC, and had my 45 on my hip, I thought about it, but with over 2.9 miles back to the truck, I just let them eventually walk off.

Zero deer encounters, hog territory, now I know!

Jimmy I would have done the same. I didn't see jack crap today! Sign everywhere, but I'm assuming they heard me coming from a mile away and ran to the next County lol. I was beat and didn't care at all about being quiet

Sarge -- When Damian and I scout, one of the first things we do is pick up a "spider stick". We look kinda funny waving those sticks around in front of us but it keeps the webs and the spiders off of us!

I normally do the exact same thing! However, the thick crap I was walking through, in order to get to some ridges I wanted to scout, didn't allow for the typical wafting of the ol spider stick lol

Weird he broke of one side already. Maybe during velvet? Too early to start fighting. Unless that was one heck of a spar!

I haven't hunted the Sam in several years but since I just moved back into the middle of it I went ahead and put in for a doe permit and got drawn. Looking forward to doing a little stomping around out there this year.

I know it hasn't been brought up yet this year on here, but if this is a repeat from previous years I apologize.

After gettin eaten alive last Thursday night, I sprayed down my hunting clothes Friday morning with Sawyer's and put it to the test this past weekend. I hiked 12.6 miles and I didn't get bit once. Yes, the mosquitoes were still swarming all around me, but they didn't land on me for long.

This stuff is legit! No after smell once it dries and it last up to 42 days or 6 washes! If you're like me and hate mosquitoes, ticks, and chiggers, Sawyer's is the way to go!

Did I hear somebody say they saw rabbits in the forest???

Some lease uncertainty that developed late this summer convinced me that I needed a fallback so I put in for a permit and was drawn.
