Yeah, that's the way it goes sometimes...

Get the big one next time out, though.

looks like most of what i did last year, if you put a hunting club driving, whoopin and hollerin' in between the salt block and the hill that would be about perfect.

One shot, off-hand, standing shot at 100 yds.

Why couldn't you walk up there and shoot one?

That must be frustrating.

I've found that bait only really works well if it makes a sound. Like a feeder spinning out corn. They can hear that sound for almost a mile and will find it quickly.

Dale,

Take the trees out and put in a wide open pasture 350yds across, remove the "Deer" and replace it with "Hogs" and me in the stand with the bow, and that was my Thursday week before last.

All I could do was watch 13 of them cross out 250 yards from me, and nothing between us but 10" tall grass. I can relate for sure.

Dale you must have my luck. If I get in a tree blind fog sets in so you can't see your hand in front of your face and you hear them below you.

I'd try to calculate the number of hours spent on the stand per kill, but I'd have to use scientific notation. :rolleyes:

That's why they call it "hunting" and not "shooting".

You mean to tell me you use bait and you didn't have dozens of mature bucks falling over themselves to get into your sights? Get out of here!

Here in Alabama we can legally hunt over a white salt block but not a brown one so this would not technically be called baiting. We also have the misfortune of not really being able to use a water source as there is water pretty much everywhere so hunting over a water hole is pretty much a waste of time. If you took this scenario and poured 100 pounds of yellow acorns on the ground then you would probably see some yearlings and maybe a 6 pointer or two. Of course you would probably see the same deer without the "acorns". I have plenty of friends who hunt over corn all year long and they don't see or shoot the quality of deer I do even though we are in the same area. I keep hoping they will figure it out and realize that mature deer in our area do not eat corn during the daylight hours. Set your feeder for noon and the 10 point will show up at 2 AM.

This photo probably depicts the majority of hunts all over the USA on a daily basis. I Usually do see at least a couple of deer every day but we have about 35 deer per square mile so they have to walk somewhere.

jrdolall, a non-resident deer permit in Alabama costs how much?

I guess I could post a picture of my office desk, so your one up on me.
