Well...it's just about my favorite time of year. Island BT's and good friends. I've been running my cams since the middle of the summer and like every year, we have another bumper crop of animals...including a couple of real bruisers. They went hard horned around the 3rd week of August - which is a bit earlier than normal. Lots and I mean LOTS of does around this year. They seem to be travelling in a larger herd than normal as well. Usually, it's just small family groups of no more than 3 does, but this year, I'm seeing gangs of 6 - 8 at a time...which is new.

We also bought a very nice camper trailer this offseason, so our digs will be better than ever before. Trails are looking great after some summer work and the stage is set for BOOM TOWN.

I am pretty stoked! The last week or so of heading to work in the dark and fog has got me hard horned for hunting season, too wink

They usually do a pretty good job of putting most of the rut during the closed period between general and late seasons...I think that it's going to be full swing for the entire second half of general season this year.

Boom!

Fish on...

We also get to hunt Nov. 1st. Any day past Oct. 31st is a major bonus.

Uggh. Our first year on the island, we lived and died by our trailcams. Toff and I were sitting in the car overlooking our hunting grounds and flipping through cam pics. I come to this one pic and I don't see anything. No deer, squirrels or windy branches. Why did the cam trigger? Then I see it. At the very edge of the pic is a floating log. I look closer. Wait a minute! That's not a log! What is that? Is that? Oh...oh God. NOOOO! Fvck you Todd! He just laughs and laughs. So gross.

I believe it was Canyon Man's trail cams that got the full "brunt" of Rico's bare ass.

For some reason, he doesn't hunt on that property any more.

NOTE: I'm still traumatized from the one and only time I hunted with Rico. I can't go back to the Island......

I think the entire Whidbey Island deer population, and half the residents of South Whidbey, are still traumatized from your...ahem..."hunting".

I imagine all this is normal hunting behavior in WA State.

There is nothing normal about The Paker's hunting, from the way it was described to me, both by him and by Rico.

The Paker's hunting career is a gigantic fuckin PETA advertisement wink

Just checking to make sure the 206 hasn't violated your being.

Yeah, it kinda is.

Fish fear me.
Birds fear me.

Deer only fear me because I'm their Hannibal Lecter. I'm the one in the stories Mamma Deer tells Baby deer at bedtime.

I will say that if and when I'm ever on a hunt, guaranteed that I will see the most and biggest bucks/bulls.

I won't get 'em...but I'll at least see them. Don't even ask me how I found them. They found me....I was just out on an armed nature hike.

Someone who knows what the fvck they are doing should just follow me. They'd have all the wall hangers they would ever need.

I, on the other hand, would still not have filled my tag.

Oh well. At least I have fun trying to learn something new to me.

If we can't laff at ourself's, and all the [Bleeeeep!]-show's we get into then life is just too fukked up! Totally appreciate the honesty Parker! Sometime's I just wonder "who's controlling this outcome right now" , when a situation that should a P.o.C. (piece of cake) turns into an atomic CF of epic proportions! And I'm the one that's smack in charge, albeit work or fun related (shakin head)!

Where's Evo-juice to tell you what you've been doing wrong all this time?? LOL

Heart punched at 60 yards. The 308 barks and they drop!
Our season lasted roughly +/- two hours including the drive time from my front door.

Nice Buck War Paint, is that a little of your paint on the tip of his antler? grin


Deer camp 2020 is pretty plush... with one of the high points being that when I shot my deer at 645pm Sunday Night, I got a text saying who shot and where are ya. 10 minutes later it was in the bucket of a tractor headed for the shop.






Roughin it!


....Not!

Ill let the boys fill in with any other stories from opening weekend if they dare.
