Here it is! It's time to get scouting and seeing where you're going to hunt this season.

Please do not post up locations.
Know that everything you post here is open to public scrutiny. Ie, you may get called out for no tag, no orange, and you may get a visit from the GW. ( it has happened)

No name calling, keep it serious. If you just want to talk smack, then go to the other thread.
Please don't post up pics of deer not taken from the SHNF.
If you're new and you have a question, please read the SHNF threads or get online and read the rules, almost every question has been answered. Also, we all work for a living, so it may take us a day or two to see your post. Have patience.

Most of all, show some respect.

I'm going to try to get out there this year. I've lost 70 lbs. and feel great! If I can manage to save some vacation time, I'd like to connect with some of you guys this year and have some fun. I live in a little subdivision in the SHNF and my property is bordered by NF. I grew up hunting and roaming SHNF and would like to get together with you guys. I have been following on here for the last few years. The deer raid my garden every spring and I want some revenge. I'm really looking forward to meeting up with you guys.

Sounds good Dave. Big congrats on the weight loss. What have you been doing? I'm not huge, but I could certainly stand to lose 20-30 lbs. I've tried watching what I eat, but it seems I'm always hungry and just overeat. I've tried skipping a meal, but that just makes me hungry...and I overeat. Seems no matter how much I eat, I stay about the same weight. I just need to stop overeating.

Not sure when I'll be up that way, but I'll message you and we can make a scouting trip together.

I live pretty close to SHNF but I've got my own deer hunting land. What I want is hogs that I can hunt during the day, the hogs on my property are pressured and only come out at night. Any more info regarding SHNF hog hunting would be awesome. I want to take my son and daughter along. Sitting in a tree stand or blind for hours waiting for a hog to come out isn't too exciting for them at 7 and 9. I figured walking and stalking, as I would be the hunter, would be a good intro.

What you lost I think I gained. I have got to get back in the gym! You should have come to the house a couple weeks ago when we did the bi-annual gtg. Usually do one more just before season starts.

For the most part, the pigs out there are pretty nocturnal. I don't know how any of these guys get lucky enough to get one out there, but it is by pure luck. Getting out and walking is going to be the only hope. And it can happen, just won't be quick or easy.

I'd be tempted to make a trip with you and try it with the longbow. Probably need to get some bunny buster tips. Some flu flus wouldn't hurt either to slow it down or I may lose all my arrows.

I'm using Quick Weight Loss Center. They're pretty expensive, but it works. They sell snacks and supplements, but the diet plan is what's effective. The sad part is "no pork, period" while on the diet. I don't use their supplements and snacks any more, they're too expensive. But the plan has me eating my 3 meals, 3 fruits and 3 snacks a day, and drinking 80 oz of water. I still have 95 lbs to go.

Now you know you're using it in the wrong context. As eddie said last year, he loses 95 lbs every time he takes a dmack.

What weight BH do you use?

I made up some simple small game heads that are very effective on rabbits (and should be on squirrel.) They weigh in at 175g, but you could adjust.

For the Flu-Flus - I like to use them if I am shooting up into the air. I use the spiral wrap method. I don't think I have any pics of those on my phone, but will try and post a picture. The max they travel is 40 yards and pack a punch inside 10 yards.

It make sense to carry regular and flu-flu depending if you see them on the ground or up on a limb.

For the longbow, 145 gr. The recurve shoots 175, but no way I could hunt small with that thing, it's just way too fast and heavy hitting.

You going to Vanderpool this weekend?

How heavy we talking? My recurve and longbow are 50 lbs. All the rabbits I hit with those heads out of those bows were fine. Well... dead... but that is fine by me

I will not be at Vanderpool... I opted to go on my first ever Turkey hunt instead

The more I think about it... even if you were pulling 80lbs, small game are fine with it. You want all the oomf you can get. A guy on here has plenty of pictures of rabbits that I know he took out with small game heads and an 80lb bow. A heavier hit to the head is better than a light one.

Now... what you might be concerned about with a heavier bow is getting it stuck in a tree trunk... or shooting too far. The flu-flu will handle the "too far" and if you use those heads I showed... they are so cheap that you won't care about unscrewing them and leaving them in the trunk. They cost about $.50 to make.

Well my recurve is 50 lbs. Roland built it with 2 strips of carbon that make this thing sing. Tod and I keep talking about chronographing it. We just say it's fast. Point being, shooting it horizontal or anything but towards the ground is sure to mean a lost arrow, especially if it ricochets. I'd be interested to see what a flu flu might do to slow it down, but probably still not enough to justify taking it over the longbow. I have a draw hunt close to home I'm thinking about putting in for, which I would probably opt to use the recurve, otherwise I need to take it a couple times this year, just to say I did

The spiral wrap flu flus will make you laugh when you realize you can't hit your 3D target in the side set at 30 yards yet you are point on at 10!

For shooting small game on the ground out to 15 yards... the head makes a difference. Last year I was chasing arrows pretty far with a dull zwickey. This year, the arrow was within 3-4 yards of the missed target 90% of the time.

I'd go with which ever you shoot best first.

I am embarrassed to say that I have never hit a tree rat with a compound bow. And it wasn't for a lack of trying a half a dozen times.

I have yet to try one without the sights and do-dads. I am mentally prepared that it won't be easy.

My first official kill with a bow was a squirrel under a feeder at 25 yards. The slick trick unzipped him, it was gruesome

Yeah, I topped out at 385. My Dr. told me how lucky I was that at 54 years old and 385 lbs., my cholesterol is perfect, blood pressure is great and no heart problems. Then she said I was pushing my luck, so I decided to do something about it.

Wow. I'm only 220-230 and not that seasoned. I started taking testosterone because I was feeling run down. Since taking that my cholesterol had skyrocketed. So I'm off it now. Hopefully it'll come down too.

Biggest problem is that switch that says I'm full, doesn't switch on until I'm pushing it down the back of my throat I'm so full. That's when it usually kicks on.

If I'd eat a normal portion, I'd probably drop 20-30 lbs quick....I'm just always hungry.

Thanks,
Don't waste your time, no deer in the Sam.

Does anyone know a way to find where the burns will be in the forest? Was out Saturday and there were a couple going then. Would be nice to concentrate scouting elsewhere.

Proud for you, I need to drop a few myself and same age.

I was that way, too. I've found that after I eat one normal portion, if I wait 10 to 15 minutes before getting seconds, I'm full. The problem is, I'm a typical southern boy, I love to eat, just because it's good!

Thanks! All of the encouragement I get helps keep me on track!
I'm looking forward to sharing a fire with you guys this year, and maybe helping to trail, or skin one with y'all.

We'll make it happen. I like to eat too. I try and wait, but that doesn't work. I can eat a late lunch at 4-4:30 and come home at 7 and eat 2 full plates of food. Trust me....that ain't good.
