Another Shamanic Double-Header

Postby shaman » Mon Nov 18, 2013 1:18 pm

The Shamanic Dream Team had another double-header over the weekend. This time it was SuperCore's turn. He shot a doe and the buck that was chasing her.

Good shooting to get them both. It always amazes me how you can be sitting there quietly with nothing going on and in an instant your senses are are lit up. Might be why hunting is so exciting. Congratulations.

Poor guy looks bad constipated... Hope he got better.

Poor SuperCore.

That's the second time he's had to gut two deer in a day in his short hunting career-- that and schlepping them out of the woods. He was about totally fagged out when I took that pic.That's not constipation. That's a 75 year old at the end of his rope.

A thought occurs to me, that should be mentioned....I would likely have shot both if presented with the shot, and had the needed permits, but technically, (at least here) the first one should have been tagged, before further hunting. :(
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

Page 8 of the current KY Hunting Guide:

HARVEST LOG
All hunters must fill out a harvest
log as soon as the animal is taken and
before it is moved.

Information that must be written on
the harvest log includes the species and
sex of animal taken, date, county of harvest
and telecheck confirmation number.
A harvest log is on the back of any
paper license or permit. Hunters may
also print a harvest log off the department’s
website: fw.ky.gov. Click on the
yellow icon “Purchase Licenses Here,”
then “Printable Harvest Log.”

License exempt hunters, youth
under 12 years of age, and those who
only have a license authorization number,
may create their own harvest log by
writing the information on a piece of
paper or note card.
Hunters and trappers must have the
completed harvest log in their possession
whenever afield during the current
season (KAR 2:140).


So, physically tagging the deer is not necessary, but you must fill out your harvest log before the animal is moved. SuperCore was doing the right thing.

Another case of different rules, different place. I have no harvest log to make. Homemade tags for my own land, and full permits for anywhere else. I believe it is reduce to possession or tag it before proceeding, here.

Although SuperCore's double-header was pure serendipity, I've actually heard guys on the radio on The Opener in KY talking to their base something like:

"Well, I have a doe down. I can see her over yonder. I'm going to wait 'till 11 and see if a buck comes through. . ."

I asked about it. Somebody told me that if you shoot a doe and leave it lay for a bit, the bucks smell it and come running. Now, I'm saying I'd endorse the strategy, but . . .
