Legacy -The 2020 Season-


Recommended Posts

Well I blew my wadd like a teenager at prom night last night.  I told myself 130" or bust this year i put in a ton of work over the summer and was willing to be patient but that all went to **** when I hit the release on my second hunt.  
 
I slipped in on an oak flat and not even 30 mins later I have a nice buck come in slow i get a look at him and its a 2.5 8pt he walks by at 10yds and I take a few pix then I see a big body dark rack run in I have 0 time to judge him and know I had one chance to stop him and and shot or he's gone... and I'm my experience I don't get second chance at mature deer.  I give him a bahh  he stops I pull back and try to get a good look but his head was in the leafs all I could see is dark tips and a big body and one step from being gone.  Well my itchy finger hit the switch while the war was going on in my head..  he ran 40 and tipped over on my 4x4 trail.  To say I was a bit baffled when I walked up was an understatement. The kids thought it was great they don't know the difference between a 115" and 130" that ment more to me then meeting my goal.

Well...I'm in a tree stand so I guess I can't complain but...
1. I wish I had my binoculars (forgot them in the truck)
2. The wind could chill the f*** out
3. Could we turn the heat down? 67 degrees is a bit warm


Saw a herd of turks on the way in. I'm expecting most of the action will be in the last hour.

Oswego county wind is ripping and temp is 55 but feels like 30s as it’s going right through me. A good sway in my tree, and not even a squirrel to be seen. 30 more minutes hoping for something to show itself

Food plot in the backyard has been fun to watch. Flat heads and young bucks so far but after the rut, when it’s freezing and snows flying, I bet we see some big guys. IMG_1661.JPG

Whaler, I can picture myself rising out of your turnips like snoopy posing as the “Great Pumpkin”, only I am dressed like Rambo with a full belt of 50 cal. and I begin mowing down an entire herd of deer ( I need to start my deer season).

This freaking tank has been in my back plot at night. I’m stoked, he knows where the brassica and rye are, and the does are there every morning and night. Just a matter of time till the SPYPOINT tells me he is making daytime mistakes!

Speaking of pumpkins, how was your harvest Whaler?!

Ended up with about four dozen pretty pumpkins. Left a dozen out for the deer but although they have had some action the deer seem to prefer the turnip tops.

Made a meme of myself to help other hunters overcome happy finger.  

 

Best of luck to all!

OMG!! That is great. And so, so true...you could do one for "where I thought I shot him" vs "where I actually shot him" with a Texas heart shot meme, too, lol

October 13 pm
62 degrees
Part sunny
West wind 15 mph becoming calm

Had an encounter with a stud tonight but unfortunately it wasn't until 715. Had him within 15 yards of the stand. Ugh. Not even sure which buck it was because it was too dark. Ill check the camera the next time I'm there.
Deer everywhere this afternoon. Once 530 hit deer began pouring out the the cut soy beans. I'm guessing I saw close to forty. Six bucks. Two shooters (the one I had visit the stand in the dark and a big eight across the field from me). Good night of action. Some chasing. Does are starting to get a bit edgy.
