Gutshot's Hunting Journal-updated 12/14/11
« on: October 16, 2011, 08:28:51 PM »
We are well into the archery season here in PA and Saturday I packed the Hoyt into the woods with me. It was one of the most difficult days to hunt I have experienced in a long time. I put on the HSS ahd headed for the ladder stand. There was a steady wind speed of about 45-50 MPH, with just a little rain. Leaves and branches were blowing past me and the ladder stand was swaying about 2-3 feet. My best choice at the time was to stay on the ground. This is what I did and I decided to walk and stalk. This was a futal effort with the winds the way they were, nearly impossible to walk into the wind. After about an hour or so of this I turned tail and headed back to camp. Conditions didn't improve any over the course of the day and the rain picked up so I scrapped the evening hunt. I will be back at it this weekend with the smoke pole.

That swaying back and forth each way is tough.

I have enough issues trying to hit what I'm aiming at when I'm standing still, I don't need the additional level of difficulty.

Well I got back out with the muzzleloader on Saturday Oct 22nd, it was a cool 46 degrees in the morning, the rain had stopped and it was very quiet in the wood. I was set up along a small stream and watching the north side of the ridge all morning for movement with no luck. However I did have a doe sneak up behind me to about 20 yards before I heard her. I turned in her direction and she bolted down over the hill and out of sight. She could have come a little closer without me noticing her, it was that quiet on the ground. Didn't get in any shooting but it was a great day in the woods. Our forests are in the peak of the color season and an awesome sight.

sounds like you are  having the same luck as I am. For some reason the bucks around here have just vanished into thin air. Funny how that happens. Anyway bust of luck Tom and keep safe.

Nov 5, 2011 Up early, 26 degrees with a very heavy frost, no significant wind. Going after the fall turkey. Driving to our favorite hunting area, there is a beautiful buck standing in the woods at about 100 yards. Spent the whole day looking for the big birds with no luck. Traveled about 5 miles on foot and couldn't even find any scratchings. The temps climbed up into the hi 50 and was just a beautiful day to be in the woods and I know the old shotgun enjoyed the walk.

Nov 29, 2011 Out of bed early and headed to the big woods, it was a cool morning with no wind to speak of. Drove to one of our favorite spots and after a short walk through the woods, I got to my stand and the wait was on. After about 3 hours I head something walking around the ridge. I set the Howa .270 on the shooting sticks and waited. A few minutes later a nice 7 point came walking into the clear where I had a good look at him before I laid him to rest. I was glad to have huntinharley with me, as the drag was all up hill to the vehicle. I have entered this deer into the 2011-2012 championship. You can see the pictures there.
