Death From Above Team 8

Discussion in '2017 Team Deer Hunting Contest' started by bilman63, Sep 16, 2017.

  1. bilman63 here. I will be hunting at home in Greene county and also will make a few trips to Athens and Vinton counties.
    I bowhunt and gun hunt. Doubt if I will take a doe this season, but am usually good for a decent buck.
  2. CnMBowhunter checking in. I hunt Greene and Warren Counties. Due to kids' activities, my season doesn't usually kick off until late October, early November. Just in time! Can't wait!

  3. It'll be mid October before I hunt also. I did the same thing last season and caught this guy doing some pre-rut cruising on my third sit of the season on October 29th.

  8. Nice buck Bilman! I have yet to see anything that big in the Ohio woods. Plenty on trail cameras throughout the seasons, but never while I am on stand. Hopefully this is the year.

  12. Welcome!!!
  13. My wife and I are expecting our second boy anytime now. I'm guessing I won't make it out much in October. Fortunately for me, our first son is 9 and likes to hunt. He is still trying to get his first deer so it should be an exciting season

    I shot this one last year on the second evening. I watched him two weeks prior every night. He came out a little late the first night but right on time the second.

    I shot this one the year before last on November 8th. I had hundreds of pictures of him, all around 2 or 3am. No sightings or pictures ever during the day except once. The rut is an amazing time of year.
    Good luck and be safe. Quality hunts over quantity of hunts

  15. Hello guys.

    I live in Shelby county but hunt Auglaize county and will be hunting Champaign county as well. I lost a good spot in Shelby county this year but picked up the spot in Champaign county but not sure how good it will be. Heading out there tomorrow to hang some cameras. Way behind where I'm normally at but I'm okay with it cause my Auglaize county place has lots of does but the bucks don't show up till they start looking for the ladies.

    I also make some trips to Scioto/Lawrence county. I have a few acres next to some Wayne National property in Perry county I bought a couple years ago I have just haven't hunted th area yet but might give it a shot this year.

    So far looks like we are all from the same general part of state which is pretty cool.

  16. Here's a few from my card pull a couple weeks ago. I won't check them again til mid October when I hunt the first time. The last buck will for sure get a pass. I believe he may be a son of the buck I harvested last year. I may shoot that big six point. If I do it will be after rut. This farm pulls in some real nice bucks when rut gets closer.

    Here is my six point haha.(I know he's a seven) This is the third year I have had him on camera. You won't here this very often but I was pretty disappointed he added the extra point. ImageUploadedByOhub Campfire1506115261.278943.jpg
