If I see more than two deer together, especially doe, I look for the Mother. If there are twin doe, and they look to be nearly a year old, I would take the big doe. If the doe comes in alone, and you don't see that she's feeding, again I would take that doe.

Re: ATTN: Old stubborn men on this site!

I hunted over 55 years and probably used a harness 3 times now I'm sitting here with cracked ribs and 3 broken vertebrae on opening day. Stand was strapped chained and lag bolted to tree. Dropped out from under me like a trap door after I sat there for a half hour. Go the safe route. I'm lucky I ca...

Re: ATTN: Old stubborn men on this site!

I confess that I have never worn a harness. When I was younger I hunted from a hang on stand with a folding seat and used screw in steps. My bow was a Hoyt Pro Hunter recurve and I never used a harness. Now, I only hunt from stands that have a shooting rail, and I feel perfectly safe. I'm sure scen...

Inexpensive shrink wrap and easier on the wallet and you can can tighten the retainer mount screws if loose by disassembly.

Edit - thought you meant the retainer fasteners were loose..
Just bend it into the position you prefer.

Re: Hunting the lunar charts.

I watch the weather report, scout the places I hunt, and make sure I don't stink! I play the wind in the areas that show recent sign, and that seems to work for me. I'm with you, I don't trust the magic 8 ball! :lol: :lol: That's the ONLY way to hunt as far as I'm concerned :thumbup: Dave :D
