This evenings hunt

Post by bandit1250 » Thu Nov 07, 2019 8:28 pm

I went out this evening about 3:00 PM for the last few hours of legal shooting times. I saw two deer in the shooting lane that never did know I was there. It was a light rain and they were feeding and I hoped I wouldn't scare them off until they moved on when they were ready. At 3:45 I heard the turkeys behind me over a hill with the their normal chatter they do when getting the flock together before they fly up for the night. Never did see one of them to get any shot with the 222. So I stayed until about 4:40 and decided it was time to head out. I looked out the lane and there came a 5 point buck. It was the same 5 point Swigs and I saw Monday. Then as I unloaded my gun to go down the tower steps I saw a really nice racked buck walk across the lane just below the tower. Very nice buck but not the big one we saw on Monday. Here is a picture down the lane with only one doe in the picture as the other one went in the edge of the brush. That is a 175 yds. to the oak tree on the other side of the deer.

Hopefully this will be my office on opening day for deer. I have killed quite a few deer from this tower and a lot of turkeys with the 222 and most were gobblers. I will soon need to patch the roof where the porcupines are eating holes in the ply wood.They must not like the taste of shingles. :o :lol:

Took my Corolla this evening and actually drove it up the woods road to save a walk in the rain. First time I did that with my car. I had cleared downed tree limbs out of the way Sunday before I took Swigs hunting here on Monday.

Well sounds like there's some potential game to be had, good luck on the opener.
Like the tower.

Good looking site. Obviously you take care of it. Nice to have the abundance of wildlife.

Always interesting to hear of other hunts..some things very similar, while some are different. Makes it interesting to hear. In Missouri you can only hunt turkeys with a shotgun or now,. Would be a completely different experience I should think with a small caliber rifle. Interesting. Thanks for posting.
