I planted clover a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday, I fertilized it. It came up great, rather thick and bright green. Hoping the fertilizer from yesterday and the rain the weather men are calling for will really cause it to take off.
Can't wait to see big bucks in it this fall. Also, as a side note, I saw baby deers tracks all around it!!!!!!!!!
I am really excited. And here is why: For christmas I got a .22 rifle, that shoots shorts and longs. I got an 870 Wingmaster Shotgun a couple of weeks back. Then 2 days ago, I got a Rossi .243 for coyote hunting for my birthday. And I will be getting a Tradition muzzleloader in a week or two also!!!! I am super excited. Now I just need range time.
Hello everyone!!! I have had alot of questions about the picture that is my profile picture. Well, if you are interested, here is my story:
I had given the stand I put up and scouted for to the guy I was dating at the time (first time deer hunter that didn't want to hunt the ground because he didn't think he would have any luck). So,I went to a spot where I know the deer funnel in and out of and sat my rear in the dirt. The sun came up and several does moved through the woods. I was hoping for a buck, and let them walk. I saw NOTHING for 4 hours. Got up, went to the truck, had a snack and something to drink, re-sprayed myself with scent off and headed back to my spot. At 1:30 in the afternoon, I hard some noises. Off to my left about 80 yards away a little spike pops over the hill. I had seen him before and was slightly annoyed. But he kept heading my way and looking behind him. So, I set up in case he was being driven away by an older deer. My thoughts were right, not 30 yards behind him, my moose topped the hill. All I saw was that he was outside his ears and tall. So I slowly positioned myself so I could get a shot. The spike in the meantime was only about 10 yards away now. Took another look back and disappeared to my right over a small embankment. My moose was getting just about right when the spike reappeared only spitting distance away!!! I was trying not to breath or shake. My moose slid out from behind a tree, quartering towards me slightly. The spike took another step forward, and reached down his nose.... and yes, he sniffed MY BOOT!!!!!!! I clicked my safety, knowing this was my only chance, the spike looked right at me, and snorted and wheeled around to flee as I pulled the trigger. My aim was deadly. (Obviously.) My moose went only about 40 yards. As I stood up, I stepped off how far he was from me when I shot. 7.5 yards. Come to find out later, he scored a 175 non-typical and was the reason that I am now on this site. He was placed on the Legends of Indiana wall at the Expo in Indy. Several of you probably saw him. So, there is my story. And as a side note, sometimes ground hunting is the best!!!
