Last Chance

Last day of the flintlock season here in 2C.

Hopefully the deer will be moving ahead of the oncoming cold front. the deer will have to move on their own or I'll have to hunt them like rabbits because absolutely no one has been hunting in my area this season.

Good Luck Everyone!

The horizon is your starting point.

Re: Last Chance

I'm at work this morning until 1:00pm, but I was standing outside the front of the plant about 15 minutes ago and heard someone fire a flinter over on the next hill. Makes me wonder the results of that shot and wish I was out. I may go out after work just to close out the year in the stand.

Re: Last Chance

I hunted Ohio today with my buddy for their muzzleloader opener. I had six does and two buck come by at about 100 yards and could never tell if the bucks were worth shooting. I was using my open sight CVA. The group went to my buddy and he shot an 18 inch 8pt.

The older I get the better I was.

Re: Last Chance

Yeah our season went kinda south as well. It being so warm and I had very few days to hunt (thanks to my wife actaully...) My dad ended up hitting a deer on Christmas day so his truck was out of commission for the entire season, and to boot a couple days ago I put the hurt on the one that got away. Yesterday I had a couple grouse hunters purposefully ruin a drive for me right as a group of deer were coming down (ok, I can't strictly PROVE purposefully, but it sure seemed pretty intentional.)

I did enjoy all my time in the woods though and saw a decent amount of deer, so in the end I count time with family spent in the woods as success!

A bad day hunting rabbits beats a good day of anything else!

Re: Last Chance

Decided to try some public land on the last day. Lots of people just walking around the game lands for leisure. Very frustrating day.

Re: Last Chance

What you mean people can't ride quads and side by sides and drink beer on game lands like they do?
