Just south of 80 in central part of the state. Lot of Ehd but on my property typically have 8 does with fawns. We had about 4 with fawns this year. Small property of 50 acres but plenty of food/cover on it. Actually more than in the past actually.
Do you guys keep blind windows open or shut then open once you are ready to shoot? In the spot I am at for bow hunting the quarters are tight…..standing corn is 40 yards from the blind. Everything 40 and in is cut.
Rented a seppi cl150 drum mulcher it works fine but doesn’t do much more than my rotary brush mower. I was surprised I could keep the drum rolling and respool wasn’t too bad with the variable boost. Thinking of trying or buying that diamond 48” disc mulcher for the bigger stuff.
Anyone used any of the standard flow disc mulchers? What are your thoughts? I see diamond makes one are there any others anyone has run. Obviously high flow is much more ideal but that isn’t what I have in mind currently.
I personally just run my 9mm with buffalo bore. Pepper spray is first defense! In reality I have a better chance of deterring a bear with a cloud than me hitting a bear multiple times in a split second.
The other question I have is how much the female contributes to the genetic antler size? I know with show animals a lot of times you could count on specific females to produce a quality offspring no matter what the male was. Some combos were better than others but the females were at the time...
It is so sporadic in my area just south of 80. There are pockets where no hunting is allowed and deer population crazy and then the sections all around it are basically void year round. Farmers all complain there are too many but it is down a lot from 10 years ago as a whole in the county...
