does the season REALLY end this saturday!?!?

i really though we had 1 more week!!! i think i do this every year! but mannnn this is sad!! tomorrow is already wed!!! this is sad!! i always thought it was a 3 week season...but i guess it depends how Christmas falls..some years longer...some as short as this years 2 weeks...

i can hunt like 2 extra weeks in 2B with the flinter(or anything i want..)....but most our better spots are in 1A...

4 more days......4 doe tags....hmmmm only got 4 for insurance reasons...if i fill 1 in one WMU i dont like to have to quit hunting and have to dog...i would like another deer or 2 if the opprotunity arises...but i have yet to fire a shot this season...buddies have been doin a pile of missing..and we have killed 2 bucks with rocklocks this year...so cant complain...and weather been pretty amazing considering it typically RAINS...but man, i hate to see it end......

Re: does the season REALLY end this saturday!?!?

Im about ready for it to be over. I need sleep. I have hunted everyday but today. Seen 21 deer with one miss and 2 misfires. Had 2 doe standing infront of my car yesterday couldnt have a safe shot with my car as there background. Going to give it another go tomorrow afternoon after some time at the range. Then all day thursday and possibly friday.

Good luck to you and everyone else still giving it a go.

Re: does the season REALLY end this saturday!?!?

as much as im ready for a "break" after a long huntin season, i hate to see it go...i know in about a week or 2, i'll be sittin around bored sayin "i wish i could be huntin!"

the toughest stretch was logging over 20 GPS miles in 2.5days of bear hunting..then rolling right into 2 straight weeks of dogging EVERY day in rifle..(perks of killin a buck in archery lol.......) i gutted and drug my own buck...but have to chase, gut and drag most everyone elses too in rifle and 2 does and a buck in flintlock so far! lol..been a sitter since and probably will be the rest of the season now so cant complain...some years its me doing all the sitting...if i didnt like my crew, i wouldnt be huntin with them!...

we dont start hunting till 10 or 11am and usually quit a little before dark so our days arent terribly long...

gunna be sad to see the season end....good luck guys!! keep your powder dry and shoot straight!!

I agree it should be longer.Flintlocks are a low impact weapon and the weather this season has been a challenge to say the least.

I agree the weather has been a challenge. You can dress for cold but when the wind blows all your pan powder away before you can close the frizzen over it?

Re: does the season REALLY end this saturday!?!?

We have so much snow up here in 1B right now the deer are yarded up in the pines, yesterday by the time I huffed and puffed through waist deep powder drifts to kick one or two up, my glasses were so fogged up when I raised the rifle I couldn't see, I will give it another go this afternoon. First year in several I saved a doe tag for this rather than fill it with my bow and we have so much snow you need a bull dozer to get to the woods, heh heh. Thats the way it goes I reckon.

Sadly most of my life has been wasted, but the rest I spent hunting, fishing, and trapping...
