Great story, great buck! Looks like the new year is off to a great start. At the risk of repeating myself GREAT!

All these great photos and now Jason's story and photo, that's why I love this thread so much.  Great photos, and great job Jason.  Looks like the house wasn't such a great idea afterall.

Heck of a buck Jason!  :thumbsup:  

Can't believe you guys are still hunting deer back there! Won't they be dropping their antlers in a couple weeks?

David,

It's funny how some of our best days afield happen when we'd like to be anywhere else.

-------------------------------------

Mickey,

Yeah, I should tone down that smile a bit next time. It's getting rediculous.   :D  

-------------------------------------

TK,

Archery deer season in Illinois runs through this weekend, but I'll probably spend my time losing squirrel arrows in an oak thicket somewhere.

Another hunt behind me and more pictures to share. This hunt was at Bayou Cocodrie NWR, La.

There was lots and lots of water, in the form of sloughs and breaks.

 

 

 

Besides all the water, there was also wall to wall, head high Palmetto.

 

I found a few scrapes.

 

And, I found a few rubs.

 

Saw plenty of Armadillos.

 

But I didn't see any deer. Maybe the 75 degree weather had something to do with it.

I did see a great Sunset, this evening.

Glad to see an '05 version!

Jason-
That's not a bad buck for a gap-shooter from Chicago!  Congrats on starting '05 right!

THis is a hot spot for deer activity.  I have already killed two deer ( 8 point and a doe) this season.  The ridge runs down from over my right shoulder and spills into a bottom in front of the stand.  Deer travel both directions in the morning and I have yet to really figure out where they are going either way.  Hunting woods without agriculture is sometimes a mystery, but when you find a spot that produces consistent sightings, you stick with it.  Both of the deer that I have shot this season came down the slope from the right working down in front of the stand on the left.  I will be in this stand again on January 15.  It will have had a 16 day rest.

It sounds like jealousy Jason! LOL  Personally, I've found over the years that it's the guys who miss more than hit are the ones doin the name callin. Don't think the deer cares one way or the other.

I went over to one of my favorite places this morning to try and catch up with the hogs. It obviously wasn't my day to shoot a pig but it was a nice walk in the woods. Temps were in the 30's and the wind was very mild. I did find a neat hive full of bees that were too cold to fly. Sorry the pic wasn't very clear. CK

Curtis...what kind of bees are those, plain ole honey bees?

About 10 years ago I fell a big(6ft dia.) western red cedar tree that had a schoolmarm at about 60 ft up. The base of the tree was hollow which is quite common for big cedars. When it hit the ground the schoolmarm(two tops) split open the lower section of the tree revealing a huge bee hive. The hive was abandoned, but had piles of honeycomb! We brought in packboards and garbage bags the next day and packed out over 200lbs of honeycomb which we rendered in my friends shop. Can't remember how many gallons of honey we ended up with, but everybody I knew received a quart of good honey for Christmas that year.
