Favorite hunting spots
Today I went and trimmed some of my treestand shooting lanes. When I got to one of he last ones, the massive oak tree had suffered major damage over the summer! All thats left is a trunk @ 16 feet tall, my stand is still there but the tree has no branches left, I have killed 2 deer out that tree, one a 175in. monster. We had hunted together almost 20 years... I walked away I couldn't take the stand off today, a good creek crossing is right there and I will pick another tree close in the same area as it sees a lot of movement from deer traveling to food from bedding areas. Any one else have a similar sweet spot in their hunting areas?
to my oldest son, he could take someone there and find it in the dark without a flashlight.
Great first post for the hunting section...............
I'm not crazy about the ramshackle blind, but the location is great. It's right on the bank of a creek between two game trails, and offers me a view of the trails at three locations where they cross open areas. With a little limb cutting, I can probably increase my coverage to allow for a 200 yard plus shot.
There's also a very nice meadow where I killed my elk last year, but it's on public land, and you have to draw a tag to hunt that unit. It holds deer and elk, and I've even seen turkey tracks on the place.
There's other places in the state that I've hunted and taken game, but you never know what they will be like from year to year. Everything in the mountains up here is so dependent on the weather. They could be high one year and down in the lower country the next. That makes it hard to pick the perfect spot. However, there is a place I have in mind, and plan to have Mosseybuck sitting there come first light, October 20.
Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.
NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOO! That stand was awesome, I had a hawk land right next to me in that tree once.
(Luke 22:36 KJV) Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
Nice and nice deer too.
Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.
That's gotta be some kind of a record, Gene!
...nah, been a legal resident for 17yrs., shot 1 elk every year. This is Unit #58, I can actually see my house from here, & a lot of times I can spot elk up here from my front porch. I've been getting two elk tags for the last 7 yrs. I keep putting in for a bull tag up here, & only manage to draw a cow tag, & get a reduced price cow/ calf tag for Unit #59, which is 10mi. further up the river, so I've actually shot 2 elk 6 of the last 7 yrs. We are actually allowed up to 3 elk permits in the Cody area, & I know a few guys that get 3 elk/ yr. I'm getting old, 2 a yr. is plenty enough work for me...
