Stumps, sheds, and scouting
« on: March 17, 2019, 08:50:09 AM »
No sheds,but Dixie and I got a limit of stumps. We found some rubs that I was unaware of also.

Best time to scout is in spring before green-up. You can see all of last years sign, no worries about spooking deer right before season and you can get some tree stand preparation done.  Even if a buck was shot last fall, another one will likely be attracted to the same things, so clear some shooting lanes and get the stand sight prepared.  Also, like uncle Barry recommends, get your entry to the stand cleared out.

Thanks for sharing. I love roving this time of the year. Best time to shoot stumps and scout for the deer.

Yessir! That’s how my shed hunts usually go too.  But they are a lot of fun!

Handle is black micarta, with Bubinga accent stripe. The veneers and overlay are "Save The Rainforest Rosewood".

You will love it....superb quality.

Thanks for the walk-along Roger!

It sure makes me miss living in the "Mit"!!!

I like living in Colorado near the Rocky Mountains, but sure do miss the wonderful hardwood forests and Fall/Winter times (regardless of how "bad" the winter is.... i'm made for it).

Really am jealous of you folks that can stump shoot and wonder.  Living in the 7th largest city in the country makes that hard.  Now that I'm retired might be able to find a few spots to wonder a bit.

"What woods are in your bow Roger?"

All of the Shrew bows have a bamboo core in the limbs

We live in the present, we dream of the future, but we learn eternal truths from the past
When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.
