You have done a great job opening up that land and making it so much better, I have hunted all over that place back in the late 80 threw the 90s grouse, deer hunting and coyote hunting never saw a snake ever, from your pic I was awful lucky.
Last time I was in that area I saw a black bear the first one I ever saw in ky.

Thanks riverboss. Bears have been playing with feeders and cameras on bordering properties north and south but I haven't seen one yet.

SB you gotta play to win!

P.S. I'm in the same boat, just haven't been able to get out, shooting for tuesday eve.

Rain tomorrow, Tuesday looks good. One of these years I'm going to kill something.

I now believe the big 9pt

to be this 8pt from last year. He has a peculiar bulge on the right side of his gut. I have seen this bulge on other big bucks but on this guy it seems to be more pronounced.

This was the last picture that I got of him. My neighbor took an uphill pot shot at him hours later up towards our property line the last day or two of late mz season. My neighbor doesn't miss but there was no indication of a hit and I walked the hills looking after the season.

I believe you’re right. You’ve got 3 great shooters on camera. Good luck you’ve earned one of them for sure

Well Stoney, if you decide to post photos of dead critters, please be considerate enough to entitle that post with the following (so that I may opt to quickly scroll past all and thanks in advance):

Fair Warning


It will be said in red. I can show you where food comes from if you would like.

Thanks CRFmxracer.

I had to go up today to trim a few sticks on the Kill Zone, sprinkle corn, and check a few cameras.

The big 9 is ready for action and has taken over.

The time on this camera is about 35 minutes slow.

Target 10 is besieged, I would rather he hides out than fights.

My father never once took me to the slaughter house with him. The cattle would simply vanish at times, and I knew where they went, because he would not lie, of course. He knew better than to take me, and you should, as well.

I would join you and snap away like you have done, thus far. I would even cook and taste the stuff, too, but that is all; other than put you to shame at target practice, Sir. :)

Target 10 looked to be walking off my property Tuesday. Coyotes came through 2 minutes earlier that might have stirred him up.

IMG_0191 (1300 x 731).jpg


He was back under the Flat Gap stand real early Wednesday

IMG_0335 (1300 x 731).jpg


and at prime time Wednesday evening. His neck swollen and hair scraped off his back from working branches. I wanted to be down there but stayed back and up because of the breeze.

5 days in a row my target 10 has been under my Flat Gap stand in shooting time.

I got to Flat Gap yesterday about 2:30 and hooked my bow on a knot between cam and string, pushed to hard and popped my string off. Not much that I could do in the field, long hike back out.

DSC03142 (1200 x 800).jpg


I have no bow vise and thought that I was out of bidness. Back in bidness.

DSC03146 (1200 x 800).jpg


I was back in by 4:45. 1 doe, these deer are really messing with me now.
