Re: Pymatuming Deer Hunt
OK...so here goes! My brother and I were at the Management Building at 3:55 AM and were the ONLY ones there. Another truck showed up about 4:10. At 4:55 there were only about 15 of us waiting in line. Needless to say, I was the first in and the first out. We headed over to the white barn (Wilson Road) for a premier spot along the swamp. I am in position by 5:45 and I have the woods to MYSELF. Then about 6:20 EVERYBODY else shows up and of course, they plop in ALL AROUND me. Long story short...I saw 31 deer, only 1 buck, a small racked 6 point that probably tipped the scales at 200+. I had MANY opportunities to shoot a doe but was holding out for a big boy. My brother saw 35 or 40 and did see a HUGE buck. He called it a Bill Jordan Realtree buck. Said it came by him at about 100 mph. It was a good day. EVERYONE around me fired at least 3 times. Get this...87 hunters (3 no-show MZL) and we harvested 5 deer. 1 buck ( a 5 point) and 4 doe. That was the total when we checked out at 4:30. I will post some pictures of the area later. Hope that helps! Good Luck to everyone going on the 19th.
