Not where it should be.... But

Post by Greywolf » Sun Sep 16, 2012 6:18 pm

It'll post in the Members Tip section, so this is where I'll put it till the site is fixed....
Sitting in the stand the other night, it's been a while since I was out hunting but I had....well here take a look

Image


Although nothing presented a shot for more than 1 1/2 seconds at a time, it was good to see them. the wind swirled and blew the scent of a rider and horse to them from a mere 30 yds from the trail.

I love to see how much I can get away with,

Sorry bout that, Sometimes they get all getty and they never stand still for more than a second or two. This is place is called "The Stands" there are 3 stands at this location, so I can always hunt this place no matter what wind direction.
But that night wasn't good, it came from everywhere.

It would be cool to watch you stick one, enjoyed the video.
I have a couple of stands that I put up for different wind directions & I will check the wind, go to the appropriate stand & darn near every time the wind will change directions. :? It just kind of swirls around.
I just try to be as scent free as possible & keep my hunting clothes smelling like burning brush or grass fire, all of the animals around here think thats the normal odor. :)

Yep, they sure are jerry, and yes I responded to your PM with the same answer LOL

some of the times I tie a sweaty work shirt high on the leg of the feeder or on the handle of the bucket so the get used to human odor close.

I call it messin with'em 101, the video was from 12 yds from the stand, I've even hung a camo shirt on a hanger and let it blow in the breeze so they see it and nothing happens. They get use to seeing things move it becomes normal to them (messin with'em 101).
Some will spook at a twitch of a finger, some I think I could do jumpin-jacks and they would still keep eatin. just depends. the smart ones that teach the others to be wary die from quick short-shaft-syndrome.
