Anybody have some fresh panther poboys. But it's just an optical illusion. Definitely a raccoon/bobcat mix breed.
It wasn't too long ago when my wife Kelly caught hunting fever and it's her favorite thing to do now (her words) I know lucky me!! Having not shot her 243 in over a year she developed a flinch that resulted in spine shoting a doe. And missing 2 bucks last weekend. So, instead of staying the whole week hunt like I planned I headed back home with the lover to do some target practice that she was, well let's just say more than willing to practice. After 44 rounds at the range and a bruise the size of a grapefruit on her shoulder she fixed her flinch and was consistently hitting a 3' target at 100 yards. We waited the week then headed up to the camp. Shitty weather had me skeptical about how this would turn out when she walked into the kitchen in all camo with her face paint on asking when we're we going to the stand. I saw it was pouring down outside and grabbed my frogg toggs to head out not to be showed up by my wife. She decided to hunt the thickest stuff we have on the lease with about a 15foot wide shooting lane in the middle of it rather than the thinned pines she missed her buck last week in. The rain was coming down as I was watching a doe and a 6 point eat at my feeder. Then....... whagggoooww! I hear her shoot in the stand about 900 yards from me. And I'm greeted with a text that says 'Omg hurry the f*ck up I'm about to throw up; I can't breathe' when I rolled up to the stand there was no blood, she couldn't tell me where the deer was when she shot it, and didn't know where she hit it. A gust of wind came and I smelt what all hunters want to smell when they cannot see 5 feet in front of their face. A dead deer. So I got down in a coon trail and shined the light and saw white. I turned around and she was crying. What we recovered was a no nonsense; no frills 130 class 10 point hunting when 9/10 times I probably would have stayed in the camp. When we got the deer back to the clearing she said 'this is the best feeling in the world.' That was literally the best feeling in the world watching these events unfold.
I am looking to trade a day on the water with a fellow outdoorsman. Id like to go catch some perch, google eye, sac-a-lait, and maybe a few bass. I can bring you put together a mixed bag of trout, reds, and flounder. I can also bring you in my boat catch a 12 dozen crab limit with ring nets. Whatever you prefer.
It was fast and aggressive yesterday in the marsh. I had a group of friends come hang out and do some fishing. Here is a photo of my wife with a nice red standing by a bushel with 2 limits of reds and 10 trout we caught in 25 mins. Carolina rigs were the token. I caught 10 trout fast on a skitterwalk at sunrise. Ended the day with 22 reds, 5 bullys (caught 15-20), and 13 keeper specks (lots of little school trout. Anywhere the current was running. The bite was close.
If you have the time to watch these then you may want to see how history repeats itself and how what we are being told on TV today is the same that was told hundreds of years ago through today when weapons were taken from most areas across the globe. And you will not like what the outcome if after they get people to buy into their 'vague' assault weapon ban..... Who determines an assault weapon? that name can be termed to knifes, sticks... all it takes is for one person to assault another with something then it has merit as an assault weapon. Please join NRA and lets stand strong if we do not. We have very gloom days ahead.
Get into the woods on the 25-26 and put out some attractant where you will be hunting.
box of table salt
and peanut oil mixed together.
and hunt that area on the 27, 28, 29th if needed after the 1st day listed. the deer will be moving all day long. this is the 3rd time i will be hunting this moon phase and both of the other times this year we harvested the sneakiest big bucks on my land that we would only get pictures of at midnight. dont get discouraged at a slow morning we harvested a 200+ and 180+ out of the same stand my wife and i at 10:30 and 11:15 with the 180+ still laying in the plot.
Best of luck hunters.
Here is a little action at the feeder
a couple little ones from the rut.
My Wife with a 180' plus 15pt
myself with a 200' 17pt bases were right at 1 foot
I am looking to scoop up some bulk corn and bulk sweet potatoes before the weekend and possible a few sacks of rice bran to bring up to my lease.
Thanks anyone for the help
