Knee Deep

13 11 2012

We are right in the middle of one of the best times of the year, the Whitetail Rut.  I would like to say our deer hunt was awesome but that was not the case.  Missed opportunities early and deer moment at night stymied our hunters.  Colin Watson took a nice 3 1/2 year old 5 x 5 on Halloween, and Joe Wirsing (WI) took a 3 1/2 yr old 8 pt by rattling a few days later.  The older mature deer did not show themselves.  I was able to seek out a few times during the hunt and did pass a few nice bucks, one actually was a 150 class 5 x 4.  With our season over at camp Betty and I will be getting out in the bush ourselves as much as possible.  Bucks are still on the move and many are locked up with does as we speak.  The post rut has been successful for myself the last few years with the big boys looking to hook up with the last does in heat.  If you could find a doe right now you will surly find a nice buck, easier said than done in the big woods. I only seen 3 does all of last year and none so far this year.  Please be safe while hunting this fall, we look forward to here all of your stories as well.

Our last group of moose hunters scored big time with this 54″ November animal.  This bull also had a twin standing right next to him.  Late season moose hunting can be lots of fun.
