It was a pretty eventful Archery season this year. I never brought the bow up on anything, but a lot of close encounters and memory makers.

So......maybe a couple sits during Gun season and definitely during late archery season. As of now I know there are a few still sneaking around.......

I put some boot leather in on Sunday and hit the top to see what things were looking like. There are definitely some big fellows roaming around up there.....

So like, if this doesn't get you excited you need to take up a new pastime.......

Uh-huh.........

Some good rubs there Craig. I'll be out in rifle with the bow...after day one, and then in late season. Hope you run into one of those big ones over there on the mountain. I've got some dandies on trail cam also, but didn't see them in season and that was on our own mountain land. I need to hit the SGL and do some walking too.

Yep I got the same problem. Filled doe tag opening day. Now I have a buck tag and have only seen one buck way out of ranfe. But my property is shredded like yours. Mornings evenings and mid day no bucks cruising. I don't gun hunt so I'll be carrying my bow until I can get a shot on something with antlers. Good luck to you!

You have some nerve...showing off such a fine blade with Frisky lurking. Sure do miss those eastern woods in whitetail season.

Those are some good looking woods to be tramping around in. Reminds me of the mountains here in WV where I hunt.Those rubs are exiting,there is a big one in there.Good luck

I saw what is probably the biggest buck that I have ever seen there times this year. He may even be bigger than the one that me and toad Smith were on years ago. It got poached. I have not seen the big boy for over a week. It may be time to shoot for meat.

Sneaking around is correct. When those bucks get big enough to make rubs like that they become so secretive and rarely let their guard down. Time and patience. Good luck the remainder of the season.

Down at the bottom of this ridge is a really big hollow. A few years ago a "almost tornado" came through it and had the timber looking like a log jamb. It is incredibly thick and very hard to enter let alone walk through.

Perfect habitat for deer to stay alive in when the "going gets tough". If a deer has the right food and lives long enough they get weird things growing out the top of there heads!

I have seen, or have seen tracks of, Bear, Bobcat, Fisher, and all the more common game down and around the ravine.

If you enter it, you do it in the morning because it will take the better part of the day to get to the saddle up at the end, and it is only a couple hundred yards long.

It's a special place.........

Good Shooting->->->->Craig

LOVE your romps and you cover some ground, nice to be taken along. All my hunting spots are VERY small and requires a lot of sitting.

Thinking positive when I go into the late season here in PA. Because now only the "big ones" are left to shoot!! :)

Monkeyball;

had a tornado swath go up the mountain where I used to hunt (Just like that) basically impassable but the Deer loved it

Had great success by finding paths where they were using and would back up against a root ball on the edge of it facing the open woods

Late evenings they would come out and parrell the mess down the mountain and I took several deer at less than 10 yards going by

good luck

Lost Mohican, neither, Northumberland Co. Andy Man, I hear you about the root balls,

They are all over the place.

Thanks guys for the compliments and good luck to those of you that head out in the late season.

Good Shooting->->->->Craig
