Who Is Still Deer Hunting?

Unread postby Spysar » Mon Jan 03, 2011 5:47 am

It's totally over for me. Massachusetts was the last nearby hunting, and they closed Dec 31st. NY closed over a week ago.

So, what state are you hunting, and how much more time? Or, are you done for the year?


A buck will see you three times, and hear you twice, but he's only gonna smell you once.

I'm done for the year in WI. Getting ready to start my winter scouting and figure out what properties to invest more time in

I'm still at it hunting in some of the public land marshes around SE Wisconsin. I got busted a few days ago by a real nice 3 1/2 year old eight on the ground in my snow camo. I was at full draw with him 25 yards out but I was sitting down and could not get in position without him busting me. I tried to slowly stand up and get in position but was not successful in doing so. Its been haunting me ever since but it was a good feeling getting back on a big buck again. With two kids+2nd shift it Equals a pretty tough season. I'm going to stick with it till the end which is January 9th. I have my doubts he'll be back but it ain't over till it over.

I'll be back out again tomorrow. I've been busy with the holidays and hit the ice with Hodag for a few days but now it's game on again.

I'll be out everyday except monday this week til close. I haven't been out in a good while due to the holidays and have changed a lot of stuff and added a few variables such as a video camera to my hunting. I have two days to hunt a private farm in a suburban area in SE WI. No permission for access to scout it just two days to scout and hunt 73 acres along the Fox River based on any sign I find. Then I'll be closing the season in the northwoods where I'm afraid my bucks have shed :cry:

I will likely call it a season The 9th. On Daves farm we could continue to hunt without haveing to EAB if we buy a couple $2 permits. But unless he is gung ho, I have pretty much had enough and I am ready to start scouting and working hard on the TV show.

KY has until the 17th. I haven't put any brown on the ground as of yet...picky. And I haven't seen much. I'm headin' out on all day event for Monday and Wednesday. I seen a decent 7pt. that needs to be taken out. He wasn't blessed with good genetics, but has good mass. I really need a doe...

I am still at it in WI. Got tomorrow off so going to head out early afternoon. SW wind should be perfect on a piece of public. I still have a buck tag left and know where a good one beds. Last time I saw him from this tree was a SSW wind late October headed from his bed South to food. Hope for the best and good luck everyone else left!!!

I have till Feb 6 to hunt Ohio. Probably won't get to much if at all. Been busy the last two weekends with the holidays falling on them so I have yet to hunt late season. PA I'm done although its open for two more weeks.

Still at it, til the end of the month. Set out my first trap line of the year yesterday. Have to admit after the long season feels good to get out of the tree stand. But I want to get one more for the freezer, then get serios about fur, then on to scouting and shed hunting, finish some mounts for freinds, then on to turkeys, then fishing and frog gigging, then summer velvet footage, when does this end?
