    Abandoned treestands

    Someone paid for the stand and hung it. If you are so bothered by it being left up longer than it should be after season contact the Game warden and let them deal with it and leave contact info for the person. Don't use it as a excuse to steal someones stand. It isn't yours leave it be. Life...

    Shed trap

    Traps are illegal but its legal to dump a bag of corn in a fallen treetop. The deer will work through the branches to get to the corn and it does the same thing as a trap. Deer also do this to get to grass and acorns so I doubt its gonna hurt them.

    Meat in the freezer!

    Yes had multipled bucks that had shed both sides on last camera check. Didn't have a single racked buck left in a week span so not sure which have shed and which have just moved off to another food source. Had 3-4 bucks packing 1 side around Christmas.

    Meat in the freezer!

    Seasons winding down and most of my bucks on camera have shed their antlers already so when a doe group stepped out yesterday evening decided its time to quit waiting and add some meat to the freezer. Got her yesterday evening just before dark.

    Have any of y'all used the golf ball method to skin a deer??

    I used it once and time I did all the cuts, got the ball tied up and, got the vehicle in place to pull the hide out I could of skinned 3 deer. Maybe if I was more prepared beforehand or something idk. Just isn't worth the time for me.

    Im confused?

    I can't help but think these posts are just to get a reaction. Surely a adult wouldn't be bothered enough to make a thread about a child getting help cocking a crossbow.

    Need y’all’s opinion!!!!!

    Everyone saying dead deer and don't wanna kill your hopes but everytime I've seen a deer lay for a while from a neck or spine shock hit then get up and take off will live. Kinda like one gets hit by a car and then lays there til it gets its bearings then off it goes. Unless a coyote takes them...

    Hunter missing in Laurel County

    If he needed help getting out of steep terrian I would assume he was injured. Don't know why they wouldn't say it in the report. But I be willing to bet most hunters on here could navigate the woods and rough terrian better than the volunter rescue squads but who knows.

    Hunter missing in Laurel County

    Seems like its awful quick to be declared missing. I hope there is just a mix up and hes fine. I know Ive hunted many of times and my phone die or just didn't have service and be tracking a deer shot at the edge of dark and it be midnight before I make it back out of the woods. Hoping this is...

    Who's good at guessing age of deer?

    That buck is at least 4.5 i'm thinking more like 5.5 yo. Hes run down from the rut and you can't tell alot about them this time of the year. That second set of pictures is the best to tell he still has a saggy brisket and pot belly even after the rut. If you saw that buck towards the end of...

    Range Finder

    I have a simmons. Works good and is about 7-8 years old with no problems. I never use it over 100 yards though. Mostly 50 yards or less while bow/ crossbow hunting. Think it was 99$ but I see them on sale for 50-75$ all the time.

    Target buck wounded

    This post went from blaming the shot placement to the bullet to the caliber and now has switched to broadheads. You can tell its November.:D

    Target buck wounded

    Sounds like a high shoulder hit. the shock to the spine put him down but didn't kill him. Keep looking and throw some cams up to see if hes still around.
