Warm Weather Shuts Down Hunt

10/1:
Warm weather has really shut us down here in northeast WI. Highs this week will be
in the 70s, with lows in the 50s. Not good for seeing big deer on their feet. That
being said, however, I saw my first bonafide “shooter” of the year on Saturday. He
was in a bachelor group with two yearling bucks, which was quite odd. I only saw him
for a minute at about 80 yards out. If I had to guess I’d say he was a 3-1/2 year
old 10 pointer, but that was through brush and thicker cover. Still enough to get
me excited. About 20 minutes later, I spied a “first” for me here in this part of
WI … a black bear. Actually had to do a double-take on that, because I have never
seen a bear while bow-hunting. The bear was about the size of a black Lab, which my
buddy says indicates it was probably a yearling. It was merely walking through the
woods eating acorns, from what I can only assume. A trophy sighting in my book, no
doubt!

No big buck photos to share this morning, although we have heard of a 160-class buck
being taken this weekend not far from Iola. Will post the pic as soon as I get it.
