  • Last deer hunt over. Cabin broke into.

    So like it says my brothers wife's family Cabin was broken into by breaking into a window and climbing in. They stole the old ratty throw on the back of the couch, a small 2'x2'x3' homemade toy box and a $10 Walmart gun rest. They left 4 new sleeping bags, prescription drugs, boots, and the small microwave. Idiots. The two work buddies my brother brought both missed deer, including one at 25' in the front yard of the cabin. I the guy I was given to a friends harvested bean field (acorns were a no show there this year) where he said he was seeing around 20 deer every evening. So we are hunkered down behind a blowdown on the fields edge (perfect wind)about an hour before sundown and the first 2 pop out at around 250-300 yds. My guy rests his gun across a branch and settles down behind the scope. Wait. I said, "What are you doing? More will come and they will get closer." He says,"I've got 150 gr of 777 and blah blah blah bullet. This gun can do this easy". So I say,"Have you ever shot that far?" His reply, "Not with this." So I said,"Maybe we should wait?" Boom! Bullet looked like it hit 50 feet short. Nothing else comes out. Back at cabin that night the guy tells my brother the farmer was full of crap about all the deer and we only saw 2 at 500 yds and at last light he took a Hail Mary. Still 2 days left but I'm back home done. Stay safe.

    That's a weird ending of the season. You're a better man than me. I'd tell my brother never to invite those guys again.

    My Saturday afternoon hunt with the crossbow was a fruitless with no game seen. The wind was right and I'd snuck into a small valley to check out a stream crossing. The leaves were dry and it was impossible to move quietly. At the crossing, there were fresh tracks so with wishful thinking, I hid in the undergrowth about 20 yards away and waited until dark. Neither deer nor pigs came by. It was a good day nevertheless just for being in the woods. Next hunt will be this coming weekend.

      PH: I was actually the "invited" man. My tags are all filled. Brother hadn't filled his tag and had 2 work buddies who were nada as well so he invited them to stay at the inlaws family cabin with him and give it a go. 3 people in open crunchy woods don't cut it so I was asked to come stay and help one of his pals as neither work pal had ever been in the area. They both could have filled tags first morning but both missed. Counting the bean field when I left they had both missed twice. Brother blew a chance midday because he forgot to load his muzzlelader(it's happened before). Woods are wide open, leaves are crunchy,and deer have been harassed for months so your brain is as vital as your feet right now, nothing you aren't well aware of. It takes a little more ability this time of year. Too many guys treat muzzleloaders as an afterthought instead of needing more practice, attention to detail. They both missed twice. Says it all. You could argue that the fella with me was stupid for taking the shot. Given his ability I agree, but he still did it.

        Could be kids that broke in the cabin instead of using the back seat of the car. Took some mementos for giggles. No other damage besides the window?

        Tough deal with the other guys but at least they missed clean and didn’t end up with a rodeo for you to deal with.

          Brother and his 2 bil's did a thorough inspection. No other damage.
          He was telling me today at work the 2 guys told everyone it was a great time. Hoping to repeat, with me along, next year. 🙄🤦🏻‍♂️

            .....with me along, next year.....!

            Well dewman, ‘next year’ will give you plenty of time to come up with an excuse to find something more enjoyable to do, like maybe make a dental appointment or a hernia operation........!
