Getting ready for upcoming deer season


Kevin J Legg

Recommended Posts

  I’ve been working hard the past week setting up ladder stands and pop up blinds in anticipation for the upcoming deer season. It’s always good to get things done early so things settle down by opening day.
  I did lots of chainsaw work cutting shooting lanes and am very happy with my results. I just set out 5 trail cams for some intell before the final tweaking of my stands.

I saw my first buck rub today so I’m excited to check trail cams latter this week. I will also be glassing fields to try to help pattern deer movement.

Scouting and work paid off for opening weekend of Muzzleloader. I shot a doe first evening and more importantly got my sister in law one the second morning. Only her second deer.Now I have some meat I will be looking for a good buck. My shot looks like it was back but that’s the exit.  Bullet entered farther forward so both were good shots.

Now I’ll be looking for a good buck and will try to get my wife and son one.

Let a spike go this morning. He was scent marking on brush up through the field. Even stood up on hind legs a few times to reach up higher.

Tonight I had several does and fawns out in the field. The photo through the scope was very difficult to take.

After helping others take a couple doe off the property and not having much daytime trail cam activity I finally had a buck dogging a doe last evening. Was a long poke for me at 300 yards but he dropped in his tracks. Had several trail cam pics of him.

Nice buck Kevin. I got out last weekend with the crossbow down here in Southern tier, had a couple does and a spike go by, but everything was  80-90 yards out. Hope I get the same opportunities next weekend when gun opens.

  Amazingly I found my old buck knife in the field half way to where I shot a deer. Must have fallen off the truck. It has served me well for nearly 50 years and was a gift from one of my first basketball teams. Ryan Legg gave me a new replacement one for Christmas.

  I also took down 3 blinds and a trail cam as the end of the season is approaching. May try to get out a few more times as I have a either fun loving muzzleloader tag left for late season and several doe tags. Doubt if I’d shoot a doe at least on the property I’ve been hunting.F1E89321-ECED-431F-B6F2-A4F366728B82.thumb.jpeg.62690cb99248701170acc643720282a1.jpeg
