    Why has no one lobbied Mr. Trump for hunter things. First day of deer season national holiday, first day of gun season the same. Maybe ask him for more buck tags allowed and more public land to hunt. O how about nighttime hunting for stubborn bucks, thats a movement i could get behind. There has...

    With the rut kicking in, and the weather getting colder deer movement is really picking up. What times of the day, and what areas( fields or woods), are we seeing deer?
  3. Ohio Whitetail Deer Hunting
    There are many forms and discussions out there about how to get deer to come out during the daytime and for the most part things like mock scraps, rattling, hunting in doe bedding areas do work. But what tricks do you have for when they just aren't making the deer budge? Some deer, usually the...

    The deer are going to start moving. Lets start a play by play for the prerut, rut, and post rut. If you're in the woods or have been in the woods what are you seeing, is rattling working, grunt calls, doe estrous, etc. Lets make this a 1 stop shop we can all use to see what the deer are doing.

    Many hunters will go straight to their tree stands when the rut begins but is this really the best place to go? Hunter's with decoys or hunting food sources often will go to the fields to catch a deer chasing and challenge him to a fight. Which is your personal favorite and why?

    I have been a life long hunter. For the last 20 years very little has changed in October and November. You could always count on when the prerut would happen and the rut every year. The last few years though this seems to have changed. Has anyone else noticed the prerut seems to be much later in...

    I'm going out this weekend in Southern Ohio (Brown County) to hunt during the extended gun weekend. Is it too late in the season to try estrus and rattling? I wasn't sure if the second rut will be over by then.

    I took this 13 point drop tine deer on November 6th. He was on the trail of a hot doe but I called him off of her at 100 yards away. I pulled him to 35 yards and took a perfect shot through both lungs and he went about 80 yards and piled up. This is the 2nd drop tine buck from this property in 2...
  10. Ohio Whitetail Deer Hunting
    I'm in Adams County in southern Ohio. From what I've seen, the deer are moving a lot in Ohio this year. My buddy shot a smaller 5 point this morning that I passed up and I've seen 4 deer in the past 3 days(2 bucks and 5 doe). Also I've had 5 friends who hunt other parts of Ohio take deer already...
