2015 Deer Hunt Summary


This year's hunt was a tough one.


We hosted 2 hunters during our early archery season. They had seen deer during their short 3 day hunt but were not successful in harvesting anything. The weather was just way to warm.


During the rifle season, we hosted the same 13 guys that we had for the last 5 years. They have seen the highs and the lows and this year was definitely a low. 6 guys came the 1st week and 7 came the 2nd week. 4 guys decided to come a few days earlier and try archery hunting first before the gun season started. We only got one on the second day of their archery hunt but nothing during the first week of the rifle season. During the 2nd week they only got one. Both groups did have some opportunities but it just wasn't meant to be.


The weather just didn't cooperate this year. It was so unbelievably hot during the first week of the rifle season the deer weren't moving. The second wasn't any better, It rained a lot. Talkabout a total 360 from last year!!!
With the weather staying as warm as it did, the late archery season was great. The deer stuck around much longer than normal giving you plenty of time and opportunities to get one. Our neighbour saw deer daily during the few hours he hunted every afternoon and ended up getting his buck however, his cousin missed an opportunity on his. Getting busted at 30 yards by his buck!!

2014 Deer Hunt Summary

We hosted two different groups (yearly repeat customers) during each week of this years gun season. 3 deer were taking opening day, one 8 point and two doe. No other deer were taken that week and the group of 5 finished with 3. During the second week 3 were taken, 1 spike, 2 does, but with all the problems, lost cell phone, car problems, atv problems, flat tires, etc. There were many days/ time spent in the camp and not actually hunting. The picture below was taken at my treestand as I was out with the guys taking down their stands. That was the only time he came in and he was clearly following her as she was going into heat.

With the excitement from the last two years hunting the late archery season, I took the time off to get serious and put the time in to get my trophy. I had 9 different spots set and ready to go with 3 nice bucks coming.

It was really cold which was good, and kept them moving but what I didnt expect to happen, was a massive snow fall (the same one Buffalo got hit with 6 feet of snow!!!!!). 3 days before the storm there were deer everywhere. Normally some snow is expected during this time but not three feet worth over two days. Within one day most of the deer in the area migrated south to their deer yards. I spent a lot of time in the woods walking and looking for them but it just wasnt meant to be this year so I called it quits. I had been staying in contact with the guy next door to see how he was doing. He informed me all the snow had melted and the big 8 he was after was back. He asked me if I wanted him to put out some corn and a trail camera at one of the spots to see if there was any action and of course there was. Just a small 8 but you never know what else could come by. So I headed up for the weekend to give it one last chance. The day was perfect and all I could think about was last years experience when that big 9 came out and I hit that tree branch with the arrow. An hour before dark, the wind changed slightly blowing right into the cedar thicket. I did not see anything and the trail camera never ended up taking any pictures that night.

This year was tough all around and thats why they call it hunting. I look forward to next year!!

These were taken just down the road from the camp.

2013 Deer Hunt Summary

This years deer hunt was no different than this years bear hunt, hard and test your patients at the best of time. Even with large quantity of apples and corn at bait sites there was just too much feed out there provided by Mother Nature. It also seemed like the wolves were chasing them around as well. We hosted 10 hunters this year. We harvested two, 3 misses less than 50 yards away and 5 missed opportunities due to not having your gun up and ready for business or not having the right tag. I hunted the late bow season and had a very nice 9 point come in to 20 yards. I ending up hitting a small branch that I couldnt see at the time of the shot due to the fading light. He jumped took a few steps then looked again then finally slowly walked away. It was a clean miss and Im grateful I didnt wound him and not be able to find him.

Jim hunted hard all season and had two different bucks in his sites. He just could never be in the right stand at the right time while they passed by during the day. 3 extremely nice bucks were taken very close to us, one being a huge 13 point that came out of the swamp (big rack with a small body).

The last couple years have been a wealth of learning experiences. If you can sit all day, take the cold and the snow, the late bow season is my pick to harvest a big mature buck. The opportunities are there, you just have to put in the time and wait them out.
