Re: Day 8 Flintlock Season

This is the weather I've been waiting for! Probably going out in the afternoon. Good luck and stay warm.

Re: Day 8 Flintlock Season

Lord, not sure what is happening in my neck of Eastern Washington County, but this has been a terrible year. Plenty of all-day hunting since beginning of rifle, and not very many Deer to be seen. Shocking actually. Such a precipitous drop in numbers so quickly. Been trying it all, stand-hunt, still-hunt, small pushes... NOTHING. I've got Thurs thru Saturday.

Re: Day 8 Flintlock Season

Was out till about 9:00.Sat from 7-8:30 and then walked around in some laurel looking for sign on way to car.Some old sign.No deer seen.Could feel the air temp. dropping.Hit or mis on area I am hunting.No constant food source.No snow to still hunt in.Think it is just luck at this point to sit and see one.Most movement seems to be at end of day since I have been out.No deer seen in a.m.

Re: Day 8 Flintlock Season

Seen 3this morning two of which ran in front of the truck on the way. Seen 1 while hunting but didn't feel comfortable that I could make a clean shot since it was about 60 yards in the brush. So she got the pass

Re: Day 8 Flintlock Season

had a dandy buck at about 140 yards in a field tonight. Didnt feel comfortable with the shot so I will get back after him this weekend if I can. I would really like to get my first flinter deer, so I may shoot a doe soon.

Re: Day 8 Flintlock Season

The only day I can hunt is the last Saturday and would be happy to get a shot at any sized doe. I have not seen a deer yet or so much as a tail for that matter. It's been a horrible year for me but I am hunting a new area.

Re: Day 8 Flintlock Season

I'm not kidding I saw 23 deer between my daughters house and a neighbors in Greetree this morning. I bumped them out of a brier bank between the houses when I was looking at a tree to trim. Most I've seen in one batch all year. No bucks

Re: Day 8 Flintlock Season

5 deer for me tonight, no shot opportunities. Been a fairly good flinty season for me so far as far as deer sightings. Seen 4 legal bucks already and a pile of does. Missed on a few of the does and already filled my buck tag
