Opening Day

Postby poacher » Tue Nov 15, 2005 6:49 am

Opening Gun season for deer here in Michigan and i'm sitting in my office looking out the window....oh well, looks like better duck weather. I leave Wed. Nov. 16th at 11:00am to head for deer camp, or is that Beer camp? :salude: Give the warriors a couple days to shoot each other. I can imagine the public land in michigan is a pumpkin patch today. Anyhow, good luck to all.

Had a great morning. Shot a big bodied, broken brow tine 7pt at 0730. After dressing it out I looked up and a 10pt was 125yds away and didn't even know I was there in the middle of a bean field. While dragging it towards my blind there was a tall spike walking at me at no more than 40yds, I'm still in the bean field, crazy morning for sure. Around 0945 the does started going nuts, took a big one at 1030. Saw 27 deer this AM, 15 were within 100yds, 7 within 30yds and none knew I was there. 2 doe tags left, but with the weather supposidely coming in it's time to hit the ducks this weekend.

:eek: holy smokes cobra :eek: sounds like your hunting in a petting zoo :laughing: :thumbsup: gotta love those domesticated deer in southern Michigan. i always manage to get a hunt in at the end of the season a stones throw from Detroit Metro airport, or as we call it, the petting zoo. :yes:

They are definetly used to people down here. Pretty sure that buck was one that hung around my goose rig last month. It'll get tougher now, too much posted/ non-hunted land around so they'll go nocturnal or at noon. For the specific blind I decide to sit in the weather last night and this morning was perfect, basically knew this would happen. Been hunting that spot, in that blind (1 of 5 huts) for 20 years. Sorta know their habits and where they'll be depending on the weather. Age and experience pays off sometimes. :salude:
