Deer Season 2012 and past

Being recently retired I have more time to do things I enjoy.    One such thing is deer season so this year I was going to hunt more.    I own a small parcel of land I planned to put a stand and hunt from.   The land has never been posted and is open for all to use.    It is what is left of my grandfathers sugar place.

This is the tree stand I put up.    It is a nice strip of hard wood kinf of a transition area not too far from here is a southren high point where deer like to bed.

   These are the views looking in the front and to the sides of this stand.    there are more  does in this area than bucks but you will not have one with out the other.    I am using a 700 remington in the 260 remington caliber.   I have a 2 to 7 Leupold scope and is a real shooter.

  This is the last deer I shot in 2008 with the 260 it was in Ontario, Canada

         Have not seen a deer in the woods yet this year.   I do have to addmit I did not hunt very much.   I got a flu and was sick 3 days and ended up with this cough that will not go away.   Kind of hard to take a stand and cough all day.



  1. Nice post, hope your deer season is successful.

  2. Webster (& Sue)! I didnt know you had blogs. Nice! We owe you some moose! PS u2 crack me up. Maybe Ill see you both on the ice.
