  1. What's better than blackpowder season?

    Blackpowder season with lots of snow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    yes, ladies and gentlemen. It's that time of year again. No, Hunting season is not quite over yet. As I look out my window in central Ohio I can see the white stuff flying through the air already!! It looks to be near perfect for next weeks hunt! I for one will be out every day hunting near Coshocton, also Near Waverly, and may hit Dillon or Woodbury. Anybody else going out?!?!?!?


    T/C black diamond .50cal /240gr "tack Driver"
    Simmons 3-10x44 wide angle w/see through mounts.

    PS If you post, lets hear how much snow you have or is coming your way to help us all out.

  5. Buying my muzzleloader tomarow!!!!!! Not 100% sure on what I'm getting yet, I'll let ya all know after I get home from work!!!!!

    Is that 6 still walking? If he is missed again this coming week, I'll run him down and strangle him!!!!!
  6. I will be out with my T/C Black Diamond w/ 100 gr. pyrodex pellets and 245 gr hollow pts. I will be hunting private property in Stark County (if the guy will give my dad permission, its the only time my dad and I get to hunt together is opening day of muzzleloader) or if dad don't get permission we are headed down to Tappan Lake area. Here in Stark county we had approx 6-8 inches but rain dropped it down to about 2-4 inches of white stuff.
    Good luck everyone and be safe.

  16. tried to talk the boss man into being sick today and heading out it didn't work, then got some bad news abouta family member so I didn't go out of the afternoon.

    It is invenotory time but I don't go in till 3 on Thursday so maybe I can hit over in Perry County again, I just hope to see a deer there!!!

    SHOOT THAT 6!!!!!!
  17. went out Monday all day and put on drives with 5 other hunters. had a small basket rack 6pt fly by me doing about Mach2. I was so surprised I actually saw a deer, I didn't have time to get a good shot. We saw about 15-20 deer and two coyotes putting on drives. Coyotes were running for the hills about 150yds out. The deer were going out way in front of the drives. 200+yds. We had to put a lot of distance between the drivers and standers, thus causing a lot to leak out the sides.
    We were hunting the Walhonding area of Coshocton County. I have never hunted in weather like this. There was 1/2 inch of ice on everything, and I mean everything. Every branch and weed in the fields had ice on it. It was literally like a bull in a china shop. And we broke everything!!
    You had to be there to understand what a sight it was.

    Hunted today down in Morgan county south of Mcconnellsville(SP?) by the powerplant. Private 75 acres. Jumped a bunch of deer while walking the area, but with no snow and ground/leaves very crunchy it was impossible to walk around.


    Plan on hitting MacArthur tommorrow and back to Coshocton on Thursday.

    Hunted Hocking Co. Both Monday and Today (Tuesday) Took 2 monday and 2 today. We saw lots of deer both days. My son and each took 1 both days. All does. Did see several large bucks but most were to crafty or to far out. Also got busted big time by a nice 10 pointer monday about 10:00 am. Any way for as cold as it was we stuck it out and both limited out our permits for this year. Wasn't to bad if you were dressed for the weather. I sat in a perment stand that had a nice propane heater in it so that helped Monday. Still was cold. Hope everyone has a safe hunt and gets their deer. Later fellows. I'm staying home and staying warm tomorrow. This old man is tired. Those hill in Hocking get BIGGER every year.
  19. I told you Ski!!! ice out the wazooo!!!I fell twice!!you go south of my place and there is no ice?? figure that one??? :D
