Today is January 17th…only 8 1/2 months until archery season! I’ve been planning treestand locations and food plot modifications. Deer hunting has become a year-round ordeal for me at this point in life. There are lots of ways for me to spend my time and I find planning, scouting, preparation, and hunting to be the most rewarding. I’ve got a big tree planting project panned for the spring that will hopefully yield apples within 5 years…we’ll see.
Bowfishing season is still open in Michigan! That’s cool! I saw a carp last week…or half a carp…lying on the ice. An eagle left it there. That got me fired up for spring bowfishing. Rich said he has “some plans” for his boat and he’s planning to bring his boat to the tournament in Caseville this year. I’m eager to see what he comes up with.
We’ve got some great firearm deer season video coming soon along with some intense bowfishing footage from last season!
I’m lucky. That’s the only way I can describe my season so far. I’ve seen two 3 1/2 year old bucks, too many 2 1/2 year old bucks to count, and a handful of 1 1/2 year old bucks…and I’m tagged out in Michigan. I shot a Continue reading
Just letting you know that we posted a new article this evening called Always Have a Backup Hunting Location.
I’ve only seen this one other time…a little spotted fawn during archery season. This year I saw one around my home the second week of September. A brand new little fawn in the Continue reading
Just a heads up this morning that we posted a new article called Combat Bowhunting to the site. I just got an email yesterday from a guy who is having his (private land) gear stolen and/or destroyed by nearby state land hunters. Many of you can probably relate…unfortunately. We hope you are having a good season!
Week 1 is done…and neither of us arrowed a deer. I had a nice opportunity at a 2 1/2 year old buck but he was a big 4-point and I decided to let him walk (see below). I’ve seen a few others over the past month that I would rather shoot so I’m taking my chances and hoping for another opportunity.
Rich saw very few deer on his property…that is not typical. He usually sees more deer than me so that’s not a good start to the season. There is another guy who hunts the property that Rich is on and he shot a 7-point last week. Hopefully this week will pick up for Rich.
I scouted on my mountain bike on Sunday…my typical state land spot in Midland County. No water, no acorns, no deer sign. I ran into a couple other guys who were biking it too and they were also disappointed with the deer sign and lack of sightings while hunting.
