Not sure about other places, but Ohio's archery season opened Saturday morning. I hunted some friends' land for about 3 hours, in a light rain. Saw a doe with a fawn as I pulled into their driveway. Got there about 30 minutes later than I should have, got there about 7:20. Had a doe come up behind a little stand of trees I was tucked into, 15 feet from me, but she never came close to my shooting lane.

Gotta get some school work cleared, and hopefully I'll be able to go up an evening or two this week. Anyone else have any luck?

I didn't go out, I usually wait for a couple weeks for the weather to cool down a bit more. None of my buddies that did go out shot anything but did see a few

1st weekend out for me, still to hot, to many t-storms, no animals seen outside of squirrels, and than too many dammm mosquitoes.

FWIW: Our archery season has been going for about 1 month in some parts of the state.


I'm lookong forwards to regular general gun, temps should be in the His of 70-80 and no high humidity.

Our season isn't open yet. Lots of deer scavaging for food though. Young bucks are still in bachelor groups. Haven't seen any mature bucks. Lots of does, including single and twin fawns. Today it is going to be 104 degrees, so only seeing deer on game cameras late at night.

It's been too warm and wet here too, it's 70 degrees right now. Started to head to my spot this morning, but it started raining very very heavily, and I turned around before too long. Really tempted to go tonight to at least just see and watch some deer, but I have a paper due at midnight.

I have had atleast 50-100 pictures of deer a night until last night. Not a single pic. Very strange.

Michigan had a special youth whitetail firearm hunt this past weekend... I took out my girlfriend's 13-year-old son for the Saturday evening hunt… we got out about 3 hours before dark & there were already % does & 2 bucks in the field… we snuck into our spot & ended up seeing 9 bucks total & 20+ does!

He ended up missing a VERY nice 8~10 pointer just before dark… he just got too nervous. Poor kid.

Does Monday count? Got this gorgeous fellow in a friend's backyard. Stopped by after work just for grins and about 4 of them were bedded down amongst the trees 20 feet (not yards) from their house. I was wearing complete business attire, button down shirt, leather shoes, hell I still had my ID badge on. Calmly walked back to the car, got my bow, crouched down on the patio and when they all stood up finally wondering wtf this yabo was up to I let the arrow go. They all bolt and then I hear the beautiful music: crunch, crunch... CRASH. Elapsed time: 5 seconds. Perfect double-lung.

Yes, probably the fastest and luckiest hunting trip I'll ever experience. Very thankful.

Nice shot on a good looking buck, Stooxie. But the picture I want to see is of you field dressing that guy in your complete business attire. :supergrin:

I called the wife and asked her to bring me a change of clothes. :cool: This was about 15 mins from my house.

The deer are starting to rut here in Pennsylvania. My dad shot his 8 pointer while it was chasing does.

I've seen a good handful and passed on a doe w/a fawn. Looking forward to the next couple of weeks...hopefully start cooling down some.

Great shot in business attire. Maybe the bow is mighter than the pen.

Watched a very nice Buck chasing a doe and fawn. Buck had head down and was definately after somethin. Highly unusual first week of October in Central Texas. Will be a strange year considering we are 27 inches behind in rainfall for the year, and had the hottest year in the last 100.

Nice deer. I've only managed to get out a couple times now. No shots but I'm seeing deer, so I'm feeling good about it.

Having a get together at the friends' place where I hunt this weekend. I'll be up there Friday and spending the night, so I'll get some hunting in. Need some fresh venison for the party.

Been way too warm where I am. Gun opener hasn't started yet...I believe bow has though. My GF is an avid TradBow hunter...but you have to throw on some deep woods deet instead of doe piss in this weather

Sunday morning I was sitting in a small clump of trees where I'd prepped a spot to shoot from, overlooking the 10 acre bean field my friends have. Heard a stomp to my left, and turned my head to find a very nice buck staring at me 60 or 70 yards away. Saw his head framed against the sky..his main beams go a bit past his ears, and his rack is quite tall. Not huge but very respectable. He'll really be something else if he makes it another couple years.

He was way out of range, and completely on to me, but I still got short of breath and a racing heart. After another few seconds and a couple of steps, he decided I was no good, and wheeled around and bounded off.

Rut's starting here soon. Found another good spot on this property later on that morning with a rub and a nice tree to get up into. Went back later with friends while on a walk, and the place reeked of deer urine. I'ma get me some deer meat dammit.

My brother called me this afternoon after hunting for three days on a ranch near Amarillo Texas. He won the hunt as a door prize at an archery tournament.

Said he shot three deer ( one buck and two does ) and three turkey, all with his bow.

Sure wish he would have stopped at my house on his way home and dropped off one of those turkeys.

I took my 15 y/o Son on a youth hunt. 35 min after shooting light this guy came by. We were in IL at a friend's lease. He did a great shot at only 20 yards with the Knight muzzle-loader. The deer only went about 30 yards after the shot. The only problem was it was all down a very steep hill. It took some effort to get the deer out.

Rifle deer hunting starts this Friday in AZ. I'm ready to go but for some reason I can't find the hunting hours in AZ. I'm pretty sure it's 1/2 hour before sunrise to 1/2 hour after sunset but I can't find the info. Anyone know for sure ?

Thanks.

I took a spike buck Saturday with my new CVA Apex muzzleloader.
That gun is freakin awesome...1" groups at 100 yards...shooting 300grain xtp sabots.

I get up to the field at 3:30pm and 3 does in the field already...
I was kinda pissed because i couldnt walk into my stand without spooking them.
So I hid behind a tree and watched these 3 does for over 2 hours...when another doe comes out with 2 bucks. The first buck was a 6 point that I made a bad shot on with my bow 3 weeks ago...I was thrilled to see him still alive and had the scope up on him immediately...but he was dogging the does and just kept moving among the does. He spotted me 100 yards away and went right back into the woods and was gone. The other deer continued feeding so I decided to take the spike-horn. 75 yard shot...he ran about 40 yards and dropped in the middle of the field. Weighed in at 124 pounds dressed. Cut him up yesterday and he is in the freezer now. I will be heading back to that field with my bow again this weekend...2 more bow tags to fill before the season ends Dec 15...

So far I've been skunked but work has kept me from spending enough time in the field. I've seen plenty deer but never in the right time or place. I've got tomorrow morning and Wednesday morning open so I know where I will be.

Elk and Moose have been pretty scarce this year, Moose tags are still getting filed but it is taking a bit longer than usual. I've only seen an elk or two in the bed of a pick up and I haven't heard of anybody getting one. (Sarcasm on)This couldn't possible be because of the wolves. (Sarcasm off)

I'm pretty curious in seeing the harvest report.

Grandson got his first buck, 8 point, 2 1/2 yr old, with my Mini-14 .223 Ballistic Silvertip round. Dropped it in its tracks.

2011 7 point buck (http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.317311754949853.95903.100000130945294&type=1&l=7b59506d24)
I got a nice 7 point with an interesting rack. 40 yard shot with a 44 mag rifle. Tore his heart in two, he didn't go more than 20 feet before dropping.

I got this 8 pointer with the bow Friday morning. It was a 32 yard shot. I hit him right behind the right shoulder and the arrow snapped and went up into the vitals through the left lung and stuck in the left shoulder blade. He ran about 400 yards with very little blood in a snow storm. I was very lucky to find him

Nice! The one in the pic above is my first buck since I was his age. That's good to hear that he dropped him with the .223 . My brother is hunting with a .223 this year and I was a little leery whether it could get the job done. Where did he hit him?
