Deer season for me is finally over and my season ended well. I killed a nice SC buck in late December and then proceeded to take a great buck in Alabama two days ago. We had to deal with a lot of water here at home and it was pretty wet in Alabama as well. I’m actually ready for a little break but I don’t want to break too long. I’ll be looking forward to chasing those thunder chickens in late March. Hope you check out my 2018 videos and I hope you enjoy them just half as much as I did making them. Later…

Let me share something very important regarding safety. I’ve been using a safety harness ( Hunter’s Safety System ) for about 8 years. For the first couple of years I did not use a lifeline but merely attached to a tree strap once I got up the tree and into the stand. However, I began to hear more and more about most tree stand accidents occurring while ascending or descending from the stand. So, I decided to put lifelines on all my stands so I would be attached the entire time from the ground up and then back down again. I never had an incident until 2 weeks ago. While beginning my descent from my lock-on my foot slipped and I fell ( 20 feet up ). There was nothing between my back and the ground except AIR!! Scared me to death! Thankfully the system worked as it should have and I was spared a crippling fall or worse a life-ending accident. Guys don’t be stupid. Resolve today never to climb without a safety harness AND life line again. Your family deserves it! Good luck the rest of the season. Later…

The bucks are definitely on the move and I’ve had a number of close calls. On Thursday I managed to close the book on a five year relationship with a big four point. he’s been a real brute for years, weighing at least 200 lbs or better every year. On Thursday he came in hobbling on three legs. He apparently had damaged his right leg somehow. I’m not exactly sure how. I had the privilege of putting him out of his misery. Video is available in the Deer 2018 gallery. Stay tuned…

The joy has gone out of hunting for the time being as a result of Hurricane Florence. Not because of any flooding or wind damage but because of the horrendous mosquito infestation which resulted from all the rain we had. Thank goodness for thermacells without which you could not stay in the woods. However, thermacells do little to protect you while going in to your stand or returning from it. It’s during that time that the mosquitos will attack! Folks this is a problem that won’t go away anytime soon. Get used to it! Later…
