    Legacy- 2018 Deer Season

    SectV- I think that’s the state of the sport right now in a lot of people’s eyes and that’s definitely not a good thing. I’ve passed a lot of deer over the last 4 years that for a lot of hunters would be their biggest buck ever. That being said everyone has a different story when it comes to their reasons or access to hunting (lack of accessible land, time, money etc.). If someone wants to shoot a spike or 6 pointer and it makes them happy then who am I or anyone else to bag on them for that. The biggest problem is that the guys who think they have a right to every buck they have named on camera and pass up any deer that’s not their “number one hit lister” make the most noise on social media and take the fun out of it for everyone else. The other big part of the problem imo is the guys that shoot small bucks on opening day and then go on social media complaining about there being no big bucks make it hard for the people, who pass up smaller bucks but don’t mind if someone shoots a first racker, to not say anything and that makes it look like there’s a lot higher numbers in the first group I listed.

    My 220 savage is the only thing I have a Nikon on (slughunter) everything else has a 50mm Vx2 or 3 on it. Going to Montana the airlines wing gun cases around like it’s a challenge. All the years I went I shot more than twice to double check it when we got there zero times, guys who went with Nikons and bushnells were always chasing theirs back in.

    I use my grandfathers old .270 110 savage whenever I can sneak it out of my dads safe, he shot his last and I shot my first deer with it the day before what would of been his 91st birthday, I never got to meet him. I also have a 1932 99 Savage .300 Savage/410 and think pretty frequently when hunting with either of them about the stories they could tell. In the event that I’m lucky enough to shoot another deer or have grandkids I’ve been thinking about keeping pictures with them in my safe of any deer I shoot with them and a quick story on the back after coming across a journal of my grandfather and great uncles old hunting camp.

    Had a pretty cool experience in the woods today besides finally seeing a buck in gun season. Still hunting in to where I wanted to sit this afternoon I went past this thicket down a heavy used deer trail so it was real quiet with the soft ground. I’m about 5 yards from the edge of the thicket (small trees with branches about 3 feet off the ground) and I look in and see something and thought it looked like a deer body so I pull my scope up on it expecting a dead deer in there and it was a doe with her head pinned to the ground and her ears flattened out almost touching the ground staring at me. I looked a little more and saw 2 more does and was looking for a possible buck for about 2 minutes and all three stayed just like that and never took their eyes off me.

    Saw a deer today on public land! Big body walking into thick stuff when I saw him never saw his head. 10 minutes later shot from the way he was heading, I talked to the guy (older guy) on our way in and told him if I heard him shoot I’d walk over and give him a hand getting whatever out, said the deer was a nice wide 8. We looked for a while but just found some brush he hit and a small clump of white hair. Might as well try the same spot again. Also I walked down to the area he came out of before I saw him and there was a fresh ground scrape he must’ve just tore in the middle of the trail.

    I picked up some go fast parts for my car in Victor and decided I was giving up on deer season and heading home to the Saratoga area. Cruise set on I90 saw the exit 39 sign and remembered I had my 220 Savage with me and pulled off to try my aunts 100 acres outside Baldwinsville tomorrow. I think this sport is some sort of a disease. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Gonna try one last spot this afternoon and maybe in the morning, if you see a bunch of hunting stuff in the middle of 90 heading east you know I didn’t see anything. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Squirrels are going nuts tonight, last time they did this I had a nice 8 walk right under my tree just before sunset and didn’t have time to get my bow down. Maybe he’ll do it again with a better end result. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    I never knew snow geese made a different noise than Canada’s until it just sounded like a pack of wounded rabbits was flying over my head. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app

    Just still hunted into my stand I thought would be good for today all sorts of tracks at the front of the property and almost none when I got back here. Guessing it snowed last night since it’s still on the trees so hopefully they’re just still on their bellies. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
