I'm going to be sitting on my SE LP public land spot hoping to catch a buck coming up from the swamp. I've never hunted this area before during gun hunting. Hopefully everyone is at work! :lol:


Oh yeah, hopefully my un-locked stand is still there otherwise I'll be sitting on the ground next to a tree. :)

Well here I sit in my stand. First time I'm out on firearm season. I miss my bow. I think the duck hunters are out on the lake but I'm not sure. Hopefully this time I get to suprised them!! Can't wait to hear the famous public land first light shots. It's 7:05 and none yet.

I have heard around 20 shots already and have seen nothing but turkeys. They are way over populated probably about 50-75 running around. No deer. SW Kent C0. Private land

I think this is more depressing than anything when you're hunting alone and hear shots around you but don't see any deer. That's how it goes I guess

Wish I was hunting. Probably won't get out again until Friday or Saturday night... Maybe Sunday.

Heard a few of those "Rambos" out in the woods Sunday and Monday. My guess is they're just blowing off steam. I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would put 5 shots into a deer. Sure would do a number on the meat!

Quick hunt this morning before work at the house. 2 doe fawns and one small buck by 8:00. A beautiful morning in the treestand - no wind like predicted.

Drove to a different public land spot and walked a bit on the edge of a corn field. There are empty stands everywhere so I'm sitting in one for a hour or so. Hope no one comes and tries to kick my butt!

I'm not hunting till Saturday morning. Opening day by buddy took a 5 point witch would have been an 8 but had one side busted up. Then an hour later missed the big heavy beamed 8 point I have seen during bow season. We looked for 2 hours for blood and or hair and did not find either. He was in a tall field and must have shot over the top of him?? He saw 7 deer total.
I seen 4 does headed for the swamp opening day where I was sitting(squeaky) The 16th I sat in the stand where my buddy sat opening morning (named poison ivy..I bet you can guess why it has that name) and had 8 deer around me for about an hour. 4 fawns 2 does and 2 bucks. The bucks were chasing the does all over. They were 1-1/2 year olds and both have one antler broken off. One is a one sided fork and the other is a one sided spike. I took a 4 point and a doe with my bow so I am hunting a wall hanger now.

Any one else score in VB???
