This morning's hunt was wonderful, but ultimately unsuccessful. In a tree stand right now! We have a massive non-typical on this stand's cam occasionally...maybe he will make a mistake tonight.

Fish on...

Pea soup fog the past few mornings has lingered into the afternoons rendering bucks even more ethereal....

I joined the whidbey crew over the weekend for the first deer hunting I have done in almost 30 years.

Didnt see an animal at the stand morning or eve all weekend. Jumped a huge Doe walking around mid day Sunday, got a bead on her for a split second but didnt shoot cause it didnt feel right before she disappeard into the thickness

That moment hooked me again...drove the hook deep.

I'll be back out next weekend smile

Damn Indian summer weather! foul

The "supposed" rain this week will be a welcomed change and I plan on being right in it.

One cranberry field depredation doe and a nice little spike so far in my freezer. Off to the Colockum for elk next.

Filled my cow tag this weekend in Pumice Plains. Shot her about 3.5 miles from the truck late morning Saturday and ended up getting the last load out Sunday morning. Feeling pretty sore at work today! It's pretty a pretty cool hunt in a place most folks don't get to go.

I'm thinking I may have to give deer a shot this week. It should be good Wednesday afternoon/evening if the predicted storm comes in Thursday. Now's the time to get in the blacktail woods. Good luck to everyone!

Dogfish - My dad has a Quilomene tag. If you happen to locate a masher buck during your Colockum hunt, please shoot me a message.

I have a feeling this weekend is going to be good for you guys. A friend sent me a photo on Friday of a huge buck walking along a city street in Lakewood during the middle of the days looking like he was all swollen up. Sunday I saw a couple of does walking around in an area my Friend has lived in for over 40 years. He had never seen any in the area before that. Yesterday I saw a real nice buck walking down a driveway in Gig Harbor, then another doe crossing the road a few miles away. I drive several hours a day on average, and these are the first I have seen in the last month and the only buck I have seen in the past 3 months.

I hope so! Toff mentioned the same activity reports. I'm going to shoot for a Wed - Friday hunt then I have to go to China on Saturday. Nah...I didn't really want to hunt during the best 5 days of the season anyways. It's cool. foul

Just got word from our hunting grounds that they are indeed up and moving about with this shift in the weather. Hope to hit it for tomorrow evening's sit.

Checking in from Camp Shame. Solo sit #1 of 5 consecutive is in the books. Had a doe and fawn chill for a bit, then a crasher just at dusk. He zigged when I needed him to zag. Oh well. Hopefully we shake hands and draw pistols at dawn.

This upcoming weather system is going to be perfect for the next 2 days. There's a nice wind and a good light rain at the moment and that makes me happy.

BTW - camp is so quiet & chill without Todd and Ryley. I miss em' but this is good too. I am going to do bad things to Todd's sleeping bag.


Tomorrow Morning is up to bat.

Here is a picture of my buddy's 10 year old son and his first deer. We only had two days to hunt this season because Vaughn cant miss his select soccer games and practices so this was a first legal deer program.

Vaughn made a great shot and the spike went about twenty yards before piling up. He was SO excited.

Itll be a good memory for him.

Awesome! My wife took one of our 5 year olds out last night for the last hour. They ended up getting a nice little 2x3! I'm pretty excited for them to head out on their own and have success. The 5 year old had quite the play by play including demonstrating the buck jumping straight in the air then taking off. Demonstrated as only a wildly excited 5 year old could. Too cool!

Decided to chase pheasant for the last few daze and wait until the last day of the general deer season for another go at deer, still no Buck for us.

Great ditch dragon hunting for us tho. Combined with some almost great Quail hunting over on the dry side before this rain, has provided us with a few tasty bird bits, so we’ll get thru the winter with a little game in the fridge... banana

Decided to head out with the my grand daughter for a hunt this afternoon. After hearing of all the tree sitters and stand hunters faring less than well, I decided to use my young hunting partner as a brush-buster & deer flusher this evening while I sit about a 100 yards away in the dry ! wink

Unless that’s her plan for me !

Wow, really wish I could be out there this year. Driving home I saw another two bucks in yards tonight, both of which were on the move. Saw a few does moving too. One buck was a really nice, the other a typical 2-3 point. Hope you guys that have not scored yet get another night or two to try. It really looks good out there.

No deer were harmed by me this season. Maybe I'll get out late season and give it better effort.

Did any of the island mashers show themselves?
