Good job Okie ! That’s a nice buck !
Nice Video, well done.Filled my 2nd doe tag during our Thanksgiving 4-day rifle opener. Also got some great footage of tracking my friend's deer. Watch until the end as I finally got a shooter on cam! Off to a great start....never had my doe tags filled this early.
NIce buck. You've got rocks there that look very similar to the PA mountains.Ended my buck hunting this year at 8:15 am. I had been hunting my property every time I had a favorable wind but as with every year at this time you start realizing how small 90 acres is when you have 6 guys on 2 sides set up along your fence which runs through solid woods so it’s not an instance of the only cover or the only place for a stand due to crops or fields. The guys on my north side drove all the way through 225 acres to get to the back fence...lol. My hunt on Sunday morning was so discouraging when I had a button buck in front of me and then he headed toward our north fence and 3 shots rang out followed closely by 2 shots on my fence on the east side...I loaded up and went south to my old deer lease. My trail camera there had shown me one possibility with a photo I got late at night on the 26th. I hunted Sunday evening and saw one small 5 point buck, I hunted Monday morning and saw 13 does, I hunted Monday evening and saw a small 4 point buck and then I went out this morning and about 7:00 am I had a doe walk by at 60 yards acting funny with her tail straight out...I figured she was in estrus so I kept sitting...sure enough at 8:15 the deer I was after came along and I took the 60 yard shot with my old 30-30...he went about 25 yards...

That mountain I hunt has 4 different levels with a steep area and then a flat 4 times...my favorite step is the 3rd flat and that Boulder field is the steep leading up to it. That Boulder field runs all the way around the mountain. Sandstone and limestone...NIce buck. You've got rocks there that look very similar to the PA mountains.
He might end up being your biggest one next year...Just a 4 pointer off in the distance eating winter wheat for the last 20 minutes of daylight.
And our last buck on the shooter list was in our lower clover plot 15 minutes after dark. So he must be bedding close by. Maybe my father can catch him on his feet before dark in the next 3 days.
That "normally" sounds very familiar. There's usually only a few times out of the entire hunting season when a mature buck is moving well in daylight, and, of course, all that hinges on hunting pressure too. My favorite three general time periods to hunt in Pa are around October 1st, around November 1st, and around December 1st.I’m thinking so too. Besides archery season this is the earliest in the evening we have him on camera. Normally he is in the winter wheat and crimson clover around midnight.
Where are you at? 36 degrees and chilly today in PA, thoughts of spring are wishful thinking. But the turkeys do look like they think it's spring.Warm and drizzling. Mosquitos are out and the turkeys think it's spring already.
