bad luck
« on: October 17, 2010, 06:46:43 PM »
So today was a good day but my luck sucks. I saw 27 deer today and 2 where bucks I also saw 8 coyotes all with in 100yds of me. The bad luck was the the 2 bucks I saw where 10ft on the wrong side of the no hunting fence. :( I didnt shoot a coyote because I figured there was a buck around and wanted to save them for the coyote contest. :tung:

That's a tough day, but in my opinion, it's never bad luck if you at least see some game in their element, and you saw a lot so nice work  ;)

good call you never know when eyes are on you so always play by the rules! Especially with the incentive to turn other guys in. Plus you wont lose any sleep tonight!

Good job. It's tough to let them walk, but you did the right thing.

Opening morning we saw 5 legal bucks and one awesome in the little group. Problem was it was 4am and on private land but I tell you what that makes you even more pumped for what can come.

Glad you passed them up and yes it is only 10 feet but it's no hunting so have to respect. You will get one good karma and mojo for those who do right.

That's the crap that really pi$$es me off. I have a cabin that is behind posted signs.......you can't see it but it's there. There are reasons some signs are up besides what others think. #1 is the safety of me and my family and friends.


Thanks for honoring posted signs.  :tup:
