Started off the 2021 season by placing a ladder stand on one of my properties I hunt. Cut shooting lanes and placed a trail camera. Will post fishing, turkey and deer pics here for both NJ and Ohio. If you look at the last pic you can see my stand in the background and the shed I found today at the very bottom of the pic.

Went to a different spot this morning...no luck so came back to my place. The birds haven’t been showing up until after 9:00am the past two days. Got set up at 8:15 and had him on the ground by 8:45. He came in with another tom but because of the hillside, I couldn’t see them until they were about 20 yards away....all I had was a head shot and he dropped in his tracks. My buddy witnessed the whole thing from across the field. Now to get him one!👍
Posted this in the turkey thread also.

This with that 410 you bought? How far was the shot? I don't remember all the details of your set up. 410 and something not TSS. Sure I could look...but I'm lazy. Lol.

20 gauge. Shot was only 20 yards and dropped him in his tracks. Patterned well out to 30 yards...didn’t shoot farther than that because of the lack of shells so I would say that 40 yards would be my maximum distance. Ended up using hevi shot blended 5,6,7 shot.

Gotcha, thanks for the info. Seems I have a kid that likes to do this, so I will likely be in the market.

Got the bait started behind my house and put fresh batteries in the camera along with a fresh sd card. Don’t hunt this stand until the December and January gun seasons but wanted to get an inventory. If a good buck shows up, I may bow hunt back there but I have other places to bow hunt. Plan on baiting those places in another couple weeks. Archery doesn’t start here until October 2nd, so I’ve got time.

Spent a few hours on the property in Ohio today. Cut back the tree limbs and briars encroaching on the trails, put out more minerals and some golden acorns in front of the cell cam so I can get a better inventory of the bucks in the area. Swapped out the sd card on the camera overlooking the mineral site. Card was full and there was a deep hole on the ground where the minerals were placed this spring. I forgot my phone so I couldn’t get pics but that hole is 5 feet across and over a foot deep. There were deer tracks everywhere in the wet soil around the site. Can’t wait to get to the hotel to look at the sd card on my computer.
