    Cotty's 2013-14 season

    With the season starting tomorrow, I figure I'd get started with my journal. I was off today. It was a teacher workday for new teachers doing a child abuse seminar. I already know how to abuse kids so I didn't need to go. I spent the morning putting up my final stand. With Kody and Klay...

    Early Season Skeeters

    What do you use to keep the skeeters at bay and make the time on stand tolerable during the early season while not stinking up the entire woods thus spooking every deer around?

    Hunting Season Fitness

    Just curious if anyone hits the gym a little more before deer or any other hunting season? I didn't do a lot of research, but I totally agree with this article about the chances of having a heart attack while hunting are greater than getting hit by a stray bullet...

    Late season hunt?

    I know this is super early to ask but I've seen a lot more interest in waterfowlers on this site over the past year. I think it would be nice to put some faces with names. I've got several fields this year that are corn that ALWAYS produce good numbers of geese late season. Who would be...

    Well... How did your turkey season go?

    It wasn't the fact that I didn't get a turkey, it was the lack of finding the birds. They were all over the place, answering my calls and being seen on a regular basis. Then the farmers planted the fields around the wooded areas and the birds flat out disappeared. I spotted a hen, called a her...

    pistol cartridges for deer gun season?

    Now that I have scratched a few heads. What is everyone's thoughts on hunting deer with rifles in pistol cartridges such as 45/70's, 44, 375, 444? Just asking. My reasoning is ammo is so expensive and the thought of reloading is so much cheaper. Box of 5 sabots are 20.00 or so. I like to shoot...
