Found this guy on the camera last week. I haven’t seen him around at all this year. Hopefully he pops out sometime before the season is over.

Well this week was full of more warm and rainy weather. It held the deer down a bit but I still seen plenty of chasing. Saturday and Sunday was a mix of tending bucks and chasing so we are definately hitting the 3rd phase of the rut and action should slow down next week as we head into breeding time. I am not sure how this will play out for opening weekend of gun season…
I am so tired after this many consecutive days of hunting I can’t even keep my train-of-thought, as you can see in the video.

I went out yesterday and seen some great chasing. I was climbing down the tree to get ready to leave and a buck started running a doe down right around my tree. I was stuck 4 feet off the ground while these deer were tear-assing in circles around me (withint 10 yards. I couldn’t get my bow so I decided to grab my camera. Footage isn’t the best but the buck stopped right in front of me and gave me a nice pose.

Well this was indeed a better week of hunting for me. The rut started showing signs of life and the bucks were on the move. I have seen some chasing but mainly it’s been a lot of seeking and the does are getting nervous. The weather has been better with temps dropping into the 40 degree range which has helped with deer movement. In addition to taking 2 doe from the town management property I was able to arrow a nice 9 point buck which scored roughly (and I mean rough… I did it myself)
130 Gross and 121 3/4 117 1/2 Gross and 108 3/4 with deductions (made a mistake the first time). (See pics below). Unfortunately I don’t think it will score a Pope and Young Buck but it is a World Record Buck in my book!
Ask anyone that knows me and they know how bent out of shape I get when a deer is shot and not recovered. I feel that they are responsible for giving me my favorite hobby so they deserve our respect. I gave a good hearted attempt to recover today but….
I just pulled the pics off my camera from Opening Day. The group took 2 doe that afternoon. Sorry the pics aren’t very presentable but that was what I was able to get.

Look at this nice Westchester County buck. He was taken by one of our group yesterday afternoon. He walked right to Mike while he was in his stand and was taken by a double lung shot at 20 yeards. Looks like he’s is in the lead for the 2009 Big Buck Contest in our group! Congratulations
