Hunting Diary

  • What A Day

    Wow!!!!!  What a morning so far...  This is what we all go to the woods for, good friends, good memories, gobbles, and to take part in a moment of time that will touch us in a place that only hunters know exists… My morning started out as the videographer for fellow POSSE member, Harley Dunsworth, (you should read his story first) but quickly changed to being a predator!!  Just… read more »

  • I’ll Take Luck Over Good Any Day

    It was early November, Manitoba Canada, hunting the rut in my backyard. The weather is wet and warm instead of cold and snowy but we were seeing above normal buck signs in our scouting and on our trail cameras that had not yet been stolen by trespassers,( I never really understood why people steal from fellow hunters) and the grain harvest was early, so fields were cultivated black and any fields that… read more »

  • Choice Groundblind Bruiser

But one property I have not been able to connect on the big boys, due to the lack of good trees where I need them. So this year I decided not to watch the deer from a distance feeding in my food plot and then wander off after dark.… read more »

  • Change is Good

The week started out pretty slow. Daytime highs were in the 70's and it was November 8. The first two sits we saw five deer total. On Tuesday night we had a small 4-point come into our doe decoy and have his way with her; that… read more »

  • “Show Me”

    I hunted the last 4-1/2 days of the Missouri's early archery season with hopes of getting a nice buck with my Hoyt bow, and then get to use my firearm permit during the following three days of the ten day rifle season. On the third day of my bow hunt, my oldest son Sage flew out to meet me. He did some scouting on his first day there, while awaiting the opening of rifle season. On my final afternoon… read more »

  • The Lucky Jacket

    Thursday October 21 seemed to be the day for me to go out and hunt. We had a POSSE member, Bill Ball come through the area after a hunt he had been on and was on his way to come visit us here at ACM. The light bulb went on!!! Give Bill a call and see if he would be available for an afternoon. I called and he said "yes, what time?", so we were putting together a plan. Joe said that we should get a ground… read more »
