Come prepared to night hunt...
« on: January 17, 2020, 01:06:09 PM »
This was a blast last year but we didn't start till the third night.

Bow light With green or red lens, (Eagles Flight sells a strap on bow mount with light but Joe and I use a brighter light),...or perimeter lights such as the Kill Light brand....arrow with at least bright fletching you can see.

I can't see well at night Terry, my eyelids are getting old and seem to start shutting down on me after it gets dark!

Eleven hunters on 100 square miles of ranch land. Sounds about right. The KILL LIGHT is a big help, and the bow light is too. I am also using Glory Nocks on all of my hunting arrows for this hunt. I'll post some information of the green bow lights I am using on the Eagles Flight Archery bow light holder.

The flashlights that fit the EFA flashlight holder:
It is a Ulaco flashlight with a green LED bulb. It takes a single AA battery. I bought a three-pack of them on Amazon for 21.99. They are also available as a one-pack for a little over 10 bucks. A bright and adjustable beam in a compact unit.

String trackers have been a big help for me in prior night hunts.  In hot weather hunts, it’s been so dry that blood dries very quickly and disappears in sandy soil.  May be better this time of year.

Green light for sure has worked best. Used headlamp, which is only fair in reality when night hunting.

I took my Waldrop Seat last year on PBS hunt, worked pretty well in most of Texas with limited tree options.

Bill, feel free to bring you pack seat as I know well about them.

All location set ups will have at least one ground pit blind with a chair.  We never hunted out of trees.

Now we do stalk all morning till 12, least Joe and I did, but that is everyone's ootions.

Terry, I recall reading at some point that you had a collapsible cooler that you used to transport game on the plane.  Would you mind sharing the name on the off- chance that one of these critters will fall down in front of me?

Thank you

No sir I do not have a  Collapsible cooler...... Are used to travel with a polar cooler made by Coleman that I-ship my stuff in but it had nothing to do with collapsing or hauling meat.... back it was to haul a bow, arrows, and all my hunting gear in a safe environment/compartment....

 I never bring back meat always leave it for the needy....

Accept!!!!!!! When my dad and I were in buiz and it was rocking....I shipped 695 pounds of bison next day air... told the secretary I did not want to see the bill....but we and many mor ate off him for TEN YEARS!!!

I did similar with Bison about 15 years ago, not as much meat as you.  Made tons of sausage, was big old 20 year Bull.  Other than sausage, pretty tough to chew.

I have not done the night hunting before and was wondering, is this done out of pit blinds or ladder stands and what is the normal shooting distance?  trying to build a few arrows to work with the extra weight of the lighted nocks.  Thanks

The hunting is from pit blinds. Shots are about 15 yards. Light up nocks are a good idea.
