Early November is always the most exciting time of the year. This season was no different. The deer were moving and after a close call with a nice 10 point buck a doe came along and presented a shot.
It’s been a busy month so far. Hunting really took off toward the end of October and continued for about a week where I was hunting. The weather threw in a couple of wildcard days where the temps climbed into the 60s.
Things are starting to turn in the woods. The October Lull is over and the bucks are on the move a little bit. It’s just about to get into the rutting season here in Wisconsin and I’m excited.
Here are some photos from the woods from the October Lull. Hopefully through this week we’ll have more of the bucks on their feet and in front of the cameras…and in front of the treestands.
The pre-rut is here in Northwestern Wisconsin. For the first time this year the action was hot in the woods. I went out for a morning hunt on Saturday October 27th and there was action from the moment I arrived on the stand. It was a crisp 27 degrees with little wind. I was able to sneak in to the top of a ridge and from there things got exciting.
With a more hours put in the woods things have really been quiet. The October Lull is in full swing around my area, but there are positive signs ahead. After a little frustration it was time to put up a new stand and figure out if we could make something happen.
In the first episode of Hunting With HunterShare we spend a little time in the woods and see some wildlife. We also look at a few of the bucks showing up on the trail cameras.
Some more bucks are starting to appear on the trail cameras.
Well, the bucks are appearing on one of my two trail cameras. I’ve moved the cam that isn’t performing to a different angle to get a wider shot. I know there are deer walking past and I just needed to adjust the camera.
These photos were taken from September 22nd through September 29th. I also threw in a few pics of the farm taken with my iPhone ont he way out to the trail cameras. I’m loving the new panoramic feature on the iPhone with iOS 6. It’s pretty sweet.
The 2012 bowhunting season is officially opened in Wisconsin.
Typically I start the season by putting up my stands on opening day of bow season. This date usually falls on the third Saturday in September. This year that was this past weekend on the 15th of the month.
