Good looking does Bulls eye!  I can't get back in the woods until Nov. 7th, hopefully I'll have something good to report after that weekend!

Been tough the last week, weather warmed up, acorns eveywhere, and moon up high and bright at night= not much daytime activity. I am hoping this little cool front we got coming through will jump start them a little bit. Hope you do well this week end,  let us know how it goes.

Did make it out hunting this past weekend.  Mid week was hit with some kind of virus that put me in the hospital with Vertigo, never want to experience that again.
 
With that said I'm working today so I can take Friday off and head up to the camp with some friends and my son.  I surprised my son with an early Christmas present, an H&R 25-06 single shot and told him he'd be going on his first deer hunt this weekend as part of the Alabama 2008 Youth Hunt going on this weekend.  Hopefully we'll have some good pics come Monday!  Good luck everyone!

Ok, the hunt with my son went well but unfortunately we didn't see any deer.  Despite that he had a great time and will be a hunter for life I think.
 
I didn't get a chance to hunt this past weekend for the Alabama Gun Season Opener.  How did everyone else do and again where are all the Alabama hunters???

Ok, you must be hunting a better part of Conecuh county than I am or you get to spend a lot more time in the woods!  I'll be heading up to the northern part of the county tomorrow and staying through Sunday so with any luck I'll have something good to report come Monday.  I don't know how close you are to us, our camp is off of hwy 106 down the road from a bar called ChooMolly's that is located just off I-65 at I believe exit 114.  It's my birthday tomorrow so I guess I'll have to stop in ChooMolly's for a good luck toast after the afternoon hunt!

Ok, got my doe this weekend!  Actually shot her at 7 am Friday morning, the day after my birthday but I'm still considering her a birthday present!  She was the largest of 5 does that walked out into a food plot of rye grass and rape.  I'm like you jacannon63, I'll probaby saving the rest of days for the rut in January too! 
 
Field notes I observed this weekend through on stand sightings and camera pics shows no signs of the rut yet in the northern part of Conecuh county.  All the does seen or photographed were in groups or with their fawns.  Photos of bucks were all at night with one shown leaving the property at 4:44 am to go back to his pine bedding area on the ajacent property.  If all goes well he'll be mine come the January rut!  So far no scrapes or rubs on known trails.  Several bucks have been photgraphed so we know they are there for the food plots at night.  Can't wait to see them chasing does next month!

In Alabama, I was written a ticket ($405.00) for hunting over bait.  The bait as I was explained was a mineral block, which was next to a salt block. My question is a mineral block not legal and how am I supposed to know.  Should I try and fight this ticket in court?
