Sometimes…..I really HATE deer. #archery

So it is the late Michigan turkey season, which is longer in duration but the trade-off is pursuing pressured birds. Due to work and other commitments, I only have Saturday mornings to hunt and have gone to a small tract of private ground where I also deer hunt in the fall. Last Saturday morning I had a short encounter with a doe group of 5 that took some interest to my 4-panel portable blind, but moved off after a few minutes of head bob and staring. Not a bit of reaction to my decoys or calling, just the "blob" of the small camo blind suddenly in "their" home territory. :confused:

Well I get out this morning a bit after 6 and set up about 75 yards from my location last week on the west end of the small 2-3 acre field that was planted in corn last season. With my Dakota jake and Avian-X hen in place about 18 yards out, I waited a bit and did some soft calling about every 15 minutes. During my 4th sequence, I noticed a turkey head and neck of a hen about 100 yards out on the south side of the field and then a second one appeared. They were disinterested in my calling and decoys, but are the best "live bait" for a gobbler and it ramped up my interest. Shortly thereafter, I caught movement out of the corner of my right eye and out steps a doe at about 50 yards. Three more followed and just like last week, they honed in on the little camo blind and immedately got hinkey….staring, head bob, foot stomp routine.

That went on for about 10 minutes before the later 3 went back in the woods but the contrary first doe just stood their staring. After another 5 minutes, she wandered away and then turned back to stare for another 5 minutes. Finally, she went into the woods and I was relieved that it was over. Not 2 minutes late, they all came back out with another in tow….for a total of 5 just staring at my location from about 60 yards out. Just then I saw a large dark shape at the southeast corner of the field as a tom is strut appeared. A few of the deer noticed him and the two hens, so now deer were right in the middle of a potential turkey scenario. One of the deer staring at the strutting tom decided it was curious and started walking right at him, which deflated his strut and he immediately backed off the field into the woodline. The stinking deer had literally run off the tom and then went back to staring at me. It progressed from distracting to absurd to oddly comical to downright frustrating as the morning played out.

At that point I had enought and stood up, waving my arms to run the deer off. Of course the two hens scurried off as well and ended my morning. When I looked at my phone, the deer had been pestering me for over 45 minutes and my opinion of them drastically changed during that time. This fall sitting in my treestand, I will get some pay-back for their contrite behavior in May. A turkey hunter never forgets……mark my words DEER….:pukey:

Deer found feasting on human remains

By Margi Murphy, The Sun May 9, 2017 | 11:01am | Updated

Forensic scientists have caught a deer munching on human remains for the first time ever.

The animal was snapped gnawing on bones by a motion-sensitive camera set up by researchers in Texas.

Footage captured the deer nibbling at rotting corpses inside a 26-acre “body farm” – a section of woodland designed to allow researchers to watch cadavers decompose and discover which animals they attract.

Raccoons, turkeys, foxes and vultures are typically seen feasting on the bodies.

But this is the first time a white-tailed deer – widely believed to be a herbivore – has been captured munching on human remains.

The corpse had been outside for 182 days.

Experts from the Forensic Anthropology Research Facility at Texas State University watched as the animal held “the bone in its mouth like a cigar” on two occasions in January 2015.

A paper recently published in the Journal of Forensic Scientists, claimed this was the “first known photographic evidence of deer gnawing human remains.”

It added the deer was likely chewing on the bones because it was deficient in minerals and that they had no evidence it had eaten any flesh.

It’s thought deer probably chomp on animal bones during winter to “obtain minerals absent in their diet” like calcium, sodium and phosphorous.

What do deer eat?

Deer are herbivores and typically eat plants, fruits, acorns, and nuts.

They switch to grass and evergreen plants in Autumn, when food is scarce.

When things get desperate in winter, they munch on fallen leaves, twigs, bushes and other woody plants.

They have been reported to gnaw on animal bones but this is believed to be when they are deficient in certain nutrients.

One of the best deer hunting stories I’ve ever read. I had a subscription to Field&Stream for years and of all the stories and articles I read in it over the years, I’ve always remembered this one more than any other.

Best new archery/bowhunting product at the Madison Deer and Turkey Expo? #archery

Here’s my vote, at least among all the exhibitors I encountered:

http://buckrubarchery.com/magnedrop/5210097

This little gizmo looks like a real gem.
The new owner of the patent (if I understood him correctly), spent a few minutes demonstrating it to me, and I walked away VERY impressed.

If you’re in the market for a dropaway rest, you really should check out this one, IMO.

Who has experienced a deer hiding from another hunter, or caught a deer pulling a fast one over on yourself. They can be slick, and some of it may even sound unbelievable. Share your stories.

Once, I heard a deer come into a patch of bulrush to bed just before first light. I was pretty sure it was the dominant buck in the area that I was after. A few hours later a group of bird hunters drove the bulrush with their dogs. The buck took a few leaps out of there, and into a thorn thicket just a few yards to my left. I could only make out his right antler sticking out past his ear. He stood motionless as the hunters passed by, 10-20 yards away, yelling at the dogs. One dog was barking at a pheasant in the top of the cedar to my right, and never picked up on the deer. After they left, the buck walked up through the thicket, and back into the bulrush.

While stillhunting through knee high grass during gun season, I saw antlers moving along the top of the grass about 10yds away, going in the opposite direction. He must have been crawling. I picked the gun up as he went behind a chest high clump of briers, and waited for him to come out the other side…and waited…and waited…, never to see him again. Only explanation I could come up with was he turned 90* and kept that brush between us as he crawled off.

What do you hunt deer with more often – a stand or a blind? #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I am a new bow hunter, and due to surgery I had to hunt from blinds all season.

I was able to buy both a climber and a hang on for next season, and will leave both of my blinds where they are.

Wha do you deer hunt from more often? A ladderstand, climber, hang on, or from a blind?

Evolution of deer hunting…am I getting old? #archery

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Guys,
Don’t get me wrong, I still like to consider myself a young gun. At 26, I hope I have many more seasons left in the woods. I’m well past the stage of brown and down (just not my thing but to each his own). I’m to the stage of killing does for the freezer but will let a small buck walk. I’d rather eat tag soup than kill a 1.5 year old…again, to each his own. So this year I find out a cousin of mine is getting into hunting at 17. I have a farm I hunt my uncle owns (not his dad). Come to find out, he’s scouted the place and put up trail cameras next to my stand. He put them there because he figured the stand was there for a reason…which is true. So here’s the mental kicker. 5 years ago, that would have rubbed me the wrong way. Do I want him in my stand when I go to hunt there?…not particularly but heck, how can you fault a guy for taking it upon himself to learn to hunt? Furthermore, he is closer and would probably get more use out of the place than I can when I make time to head down to KY. At this juncture, I’m just trying to help him learn and teach him what I know. Things are changing for me too as I went from private in KY to all public in Ohio when I moved. Somehow, I am looking forward to the challenge of public more than the "sure bet" of private. Do you guys remember when it was more about the challenge than bone on the wall? I feel like that how things are turning for me and if I can get someone else interested in it then all the better. Just a rainy day thought…and if you are interested in hitting Ohio public land, let me know…its always more fun when you have a hunting buddy.
