    Set up plans for the opener

    Yessir he's a rare breed. I always get a lot of real nice bucks through my place but not often I see one that size at such a young age. I'm pretty sure he's only 3.

    Set up plans for the opener

    Good luck in both states! I'll be a week or so behind on Ohio, but I'd bet this cold front will have them moving in daylight. Dad says white oaks have been dropping up there for 2 weeks. I was there 3 weeks ago and did a camera check. Had some resident up & coming 2 & 3 year old bucks moving in...

    Set up plans for the opener

    I've got a couple public land spots with white oak stands I'm thinking of hunting. I haven't scouted them at all since last year so I'm hoping it's not just a shot in the dark. I was planning to hit Ohio but my folks up there are recovering from covid, so no bueno. That plan will be on hold...

    Wind Speed and Deer Activity

    If you really want to hate the wind, read up on the venturi effect of wind. It not only causes wind direction to be dictated by terrain, but also alters atmospheric pressure and even temperature according to the terrain. Suddenly a south wind doesn't necessarily have mean south wind anymore. It...

    Wind Speed and Deer Activity

    Eh, I don't mind wind much except if it's blowing hard. Deer seem to get skittish if the wind is too strong. Otherwise I couldn't care one way or the other if the wind is blowing or dead calm.

    Opinions wanted on persimmon

    If I were going to open it, I'd open it in several places from all sides. The deer won't be comfortable being enclosed. Having escape routes will put them at ease.

    Mature acorns - what are you seeing where

    Looked at my persimmon tree yesterday and the fruit is still green. There are a few more deeper into the property but I don't want to go in until hunting season. Willow and white oaks still dropping strong.

    Mature acorns - what are you seeing where

    That's a good question. I'd be interested as well. I'm originally from southern Ohio. Lived here for 6yrs. A lot of vegetation is the same but there are some things here that aren't up there. I'm always having to search google or ask locals about stuff I find. Maypops are a good example. I'd...

    Thoughts

    Base of neck is almost even with torso, and his torso is thick as legs are long. I'd say classic example of a healthy 3.5yr old.

    Mature acorns - what are you seeing where

    Dang yall got ripe persimmons already? They're still green here. It's usually October before I see them turning orange, let alone drop.

    Mature acorns - what are you seeing where

    Here in Manchester the white oaks and willow oaks are dropping heavy. I ate one of the white oak acorns & they are soft & sweet. The willow oaks are bitter as can be and acidic.

    Guess the score

    Hahaha I don't mind t a bit. I love antlers and doing a score guesstimate gives me a quick distraction from my otherwise stressfully mundane day. I figure if I'm gonna guess, I should guess pretty close.

    Thank you :) I forgot to add that I got 80" for right side & 83" for left side. I wish it wouldn't have gotten crammed up together like that.

    The Rut is about to kick off in Mid Tn

    Yessir!!! As soon as that velvet is gone, they are eager to put the new hardware to work. Until the girls show up to the party, there's nothing else to do.

    Fawns

    As I understand it, that's one of the things that make whitetails so adaptive. They breed from early fall to early spring, spreading their fawn drop across the entire summer, rather than all at once. Come hell or high water some of those fawns will survive to reproduce. Not one catastrophic...

    Undecided

    Hard to beat Ohio's regs. One buck, archery only until after the rut, very short gun season, and primitive firearms in late season and only for a few days. Bucks get a chance to reach old age. Tags are over counter and there's a lot of public land to hunt.
