Well, man i'm glad nov is gone. it was the worst november weather i'd ever seen on the island from 45 and rain to 100mph winds and below zero wind chills.
Saw many many uphappy hunters walking around town, thankfully I was able to pull off 3 deer hunting trips this fall and pull out some nice deer. As usual we saw some big ones that we never got, which is always nice to see.
Glad the snow is melting the deer were all pushed down on the beach by thanksgiving and the outcome for future deer were slim at best.
4 years ago we saw a young forkie buck with his hind leg busted and swinging in the wind like an ol' wind sock..it was ugly...this fall the first buck we nailed was a heavy horned bruiser with doe on the brain...went to skin him and found one hind leg all mendedup with bone stickin' out and healed. no movement in the joint...can only imagine it was the same buck from years before!! i'd have never thought a deer would have survived a break like that. Feel bad when these little deer that could get under estimated.
Highlight of the fall had to be a father and son hunt, the son was 11 and this was his first big game hunt! he nailed a little buck on day one at 20 yards in a sideways snow storm, a forkie the next day at 25 yards and his first fox. then on the 3rd day he dropped another forkie at about 200 yards! his dad also took a nice buck but was there for his boy and we had a riot!! 2 feet of snow made getting around tough. but he had fun...so did his dad!!
