Third Hunt of the Maryland Season

Last night I went on my third hunt of the season and I was on doe patrol. While sitting in my truck I watch four doe come out on the field and I thought my evening was toast. Anyway I got dressed and headed into stand. I didnt bump anything going in so I quickly got set up and waited for the party to begin. About 5:30 I saw movement, it was a couple little bucks. They fed around for a while and then finally I had a large doe move in. I watched her as she fed into range, and a nice little 6pt in full velvet followed her. I had both deer in front of me at 15yds and as I was getting ready to draw I had another little buck come in behind me so I had to wait. I watched him as he fed through and as he went behind the brush I verfied the other two deer were still unaware of my presence. All was good so I drew my bow, place the pin on the sweet spot of that doe, and let her have it. I saw the arrow smash into her and as she ran off I knew my hit was true. This all happened so fast the little 6pt had no idea and just stood there watching her. He then slowly walked off after the disturbance and took the other little buck with him. When it was all clear I got down and verfied what I saw as I recoved my blood soaked arrow and then my doe a near 40 yards away. What a great evening to harvest a doe, and I also got to see some of my up and coming young bucks. This doe was my 3rd of the year in 3 hunts. The year is really starting off right. I truely hope everyone else is having just as good a time as I have so far in the woods. Happy hunting and please share your stories. Peace.

Maryland Bow Operner in One Week

If you are like me you have been waiting for this day since February 1, 2012, and yes it’s only one week away, I can hardly wait. All the planning, all the prep work, all the food plots, filling feeders and scouting to get to this one day. I ask you, are you ready? I love opening day of bow season, cause I get the chance to go after all those bucks I’ve been watching all summer long, as they don’t have a clue yet to as what’s going on or is about to happen. Opening day is also my chance to get away, get up in that stand, and let all my worries fade away. This has been a particular busy summer for me, and I didn’t have the  chance to do as much in the field as I usually do, but I did make some progress on some things and not others. I am still in the process of working on a food plot that I plan to hunt over during late fall and winter, and I’d still like to get some more cameras out at key locations to pin point some bucks I’ve been watching. My main point for writing this was to just simply inform you ONE MORE WEEK!!! Don’t delay, get your stuff ready, get organized, wash your clothes, shoot your bow, and simply fine tune everything ahead of time so your not rushing the day before to get it all done, that does nothing but cause problems. From my scouting this summer I have pin pointed one buck that I added to my hit list, and yes I’ll be after him opening day evening. I’m pleased to share with you, Curly.

I have been watching him since he had numbs on his head and he caught my attention, and now he’s grown into a pretty impressive deer that I would be super excited to harvest. I surely hope that all of you that will be hitting the woods next Friday have a dandy buck you are after, or if it’s just that peace you are looking for then more power to you. Happy hunting to you all, and please share your stories this fall.

All is Good in Maryland as Hunting Season Approaches

CDY 0075 All is Good in Maryland as Hunting Season Approaches

All is good here in Maryland as hunting season approaches, as I keep preparing for the upcoming season. The summer has flown by here as I’ve spent lots of quality time in the woods prepping for the up coming hunting season. I’ve been scouting the whitetails, filling feeders, putting minerals out, and planting food plots all summer long. I can tell you that success doesn’t come easy, but if you do all the work, it will come. I’ve have worked my tail off for years managing my properties, and I have consistently shot nice deer year after year, and I’m not bragging here, just passing on good information. If there is one point I really want to pass on is to manage the deer for your particular needs, and do what makes you happy. I just want to wish you all the very best of luck this season, and please share your stories with us. Remember, Maryland bow season opens this year on September 7th, oh yeah time to bring it early.

Last Day Cliche in South Carolina

wpid 2012 08 17 06.52.46 Last Day Cliche in South Carolina

I sit here this morning coming down off mu high from last evenings hunt. Even though I didnt harvest an animal it was truely a spectacular evening to be there with all the wildlife. As Ive grown older I’ve learned to appreciate hunting for what it is really is, and stopped focusing on the kill. No dont get me wrong, if you know me then you know I kill stuff, and I mean plenty. Now I just feel so blessed to have the opportunity be our here enjoying our great outdoors and if I kill something well then thats a bonus to the experience. On a side note please wish me luck on my last evening hunt tonight. Peace.

Second Evening here in South Carolina

wpid 2012 08 16 17.35.09 Second Evening here in South Carolina

Well here we go, evening number two in South Carolina and it has started off a little crazy. While heading to our stands and getting into them we had a major thunderstorm hit but that didnt seem to bother the deer as we saw quite a few on the way in. After getting into my stand and after the ran had stopped I had 3 little bucks come through. Not long after that I had a pretty decent 8pt come out and make his way in front of me, just not quite big enough to shoot. In this first hour i’ve already had four times the action of the past two days and the best is yet to come, I hope. Lets see if this evening brings out the big boy cause I’m locked, loaded, and ready to go. Peace.

A Maryland Huntographer Takes A Little R&R

wpid 2012 08 12 19.12.03 A Maryland Huntographer Takes A Little R&R

So today is my beautiful wife’s birthday and Im taking this time to reflect on this time I get to spend with her before hunting season. We all know the hunters guilt and I feel it every year that is why it makes me happy that I can take her away on her birthday before the kick off of the season. I am also tsking this time to rest my mind and soul as I leave for my first hunting trip of the year in two days to go down to South Carolina. As we all know the mental game is just as important as anything else when hunting. To be the dominant predator you need to be fully prepared physically, and mentally. See you in the woods this fall.
