  1. Top pic - clover Next - rye/clover fall planting Spring buckwheat three year old clover plot Cereal rye/oats/winter peas fall planting cereal rye cover/clover fall three year old clover plot buck I got this year in between clover and brassica plots i can’t upload brassica pic for some reason good luck - Chris
  2. 1.) learn from what the deer are telling you on your parcel - they most likely have other more preferred food sources and you don’t have a wood lot over crowded by deer, thus they aren’t eating your bulbs 2.) try adding some winter peas to your brassica plot next year to sweeten it 3.) most people crowd brassicas and put seed down too thick…remember to follow proper seed rates to get the best greens and bulbs. If they’re hammering your brassicas too early and they’re stunted from overcrowding , you won’t get good tubers 4.) do a soil test each year. Brassicas and the bulbs need proper fertilizer to taste good 5.) often it takes a few years for deer to really start hammering brassicas unless you have no other food sources 6.) I’m not sure why you are concerned? Usually I still have some greens well into muzzle season….the deer digging up turnips, daikon etc isn’t really until deep winter on my property, after the hunting seasons 7.) don’t plant brassicas same plot two years in a row 8.) go back to #1 - follow what the deer tell you and plant what they eat on your parcel….what’s good for one wood lot, doesn’t always work for another. 9.) that being said, I have five plots that I rotate , some 1/4 acre, others 1.5 acres….my go to combos are: - clover and cereal rye fall - peas/oats/cereal rye fall - brassicas/radish/ turnips fall - spring planting of sorghum and buckwheat. I either do a no till and knock it down over rye/oats/peas or kill it and re till late summer and plant my fall stuff - once your clover gets going, over seed and frost seed in the early spring….imperial clover from whitetail institute is like crack to my deer - always always always do a soul test each year fun stuff - I love love love food plots but I’m constantly learning .

  3. The same thing happens most years in the week or so prior to "prime time rut" at the end of Oct/early November. The doe are being harrassed by big and little bucks and if one is in early estrus a few properties over, every buck in the woods is probably chasing her around. Once more does are in heat, it spreads out the rutting activity tremendously. The bucks are breaking up and starting to figure it all out. Also, I'm convinced that deer are more on edge this time b/c of the tremendous hunter pressure the first few weeks of bow - lots of hunting, people doing stand work, last minute camp work, etc. As far as food, deer change their eating habits this time of year. They are shifting from open ag and the mixed greens of food plots, to more of woody stem browse, forbs, acorns, etc within the woods. I see it all the time - I have five food plots that are loaded with deer throughout the summer and fall, too, but many times the deer are feeding in the woods right on the edge of the plot this time of year and they're eating stems, leaves, forbs, etc. I think next week could be great - the first cold, calm, sunny day after the rain and wind this weekend could be great (I think that's Monday next week) Awesome buck you shot - congrats!!! Chris
  4. Lots of good advice given. I have and have mounted 100+ scopes….everything from Leupold, Nikon, Bushnell, Zeiss and Swarovski…..only one scope failure and it was a cheapo Bushnell. Rarely is it a scope failure, although certainly in the realm of possibilities but usually scope failure symptoms are erratic shots all over the place, slippage if your windage/elevation knobs, rattling when shook, rapid drops (good group and all of a sudden an outlier with a 10” drop). I’d do this: 1.) shoot all your shots with a bench rest 2.) buy a good scope mounting kit and fat wrench for torquing. If you’re spending $1500 on a scope, spend a few hundred more on good mounting tools. learn how to lap the rings properly 3.) torque your rings to spec and lap them 4.) mount scope and bore sight and torque to spec 5.) shoot at 50 yards first, get a good group 2” high and then move out to 100 yards dead zero if most of your shooting is at that range 6.) see what your MZ likes (dirty vs clean bore, swab before shot etc). That being said, I do not think it’s a bore fouling issue at 9” of rise (1-2” maybe but not a foot) 7.) after a good group, shake your gun, turn upside down, etc and shoot another group (when we’re in the field our guns are put through all kinds of stuff so mimic the real world scenario) if you can’t get a good group doing this, then it sounds like bad scope but there’s just so many other variables that you haven’t tackled Pm me if further ?’s Chris
  5. Bob and his dog Thor are absolutely amazing. He found my beautiful buck this year......it ran 1/3 of a mile with a destroyed liver, single lung and hole in its diaphragm. Bob will walk you through the shot process, ask all kinds of questions about where your shot was, make you fill out the grid for shot placement, etc. His dog is really cool (found my deer after it went through thick bedding, 35,000 deer trails, doubled back on the blood trail and crossed a main road and finally into a corn field also filled with 1000's of tracks!!!). These tracking guys/gals are simply phenomenal - they take the time to find your deer and are incredibly kind and they care about the deer as much as you do. Thor will find it as it sounds like you have a fatal hit. Sounds like possible direct heart hit or even liver, guts if he bucked like that..... but certainly fatal. I also think the snow helps with scent. Thor found pinhead sized blood specks with my deer and as mentioned found it after it crossed a road. Bob and Thor will give it their all for you. Just do NOT pet Thor if he finds your deer........ Bob will warn you Good luck, try and relax tonight and let us know how you make out Chris

    Awesome story Any information on thus deer surging the original bow hit? Was it weakened, infected, meat tainted etc etc? I’m curious what happens to these magnificent creatures following a non lethal hit Thanks and congrats Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. No sabot sleeve Those bullets were designed specifically for the CVA Paramount gun but I think you can use them in any MZ. That being said, the bullet likes magnum loads BTW there’s lots of bullets available online Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  12. Power belt bullets are not typically used with a sabot sleeve so I’m confused here? They have their own special base but I didn’t think you use a sabot sleeve with them. I shoot Hornady SST’s sabots and they are hard as heck to push down the barrel unless I swab after every 2 shots. I have to Swab every two shots shooting from my bench Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
