Friday cant come quick enough

Well as some of you know, this upcoming friday is the opening day for bow season!! cant wait to get out in the woods and shoot myself a nice buck.

for all you city slickers out there:
          If you have problems securing permission to hunt on private land, here’s another hunting tip for you: look into hunting on public lands. You can take a really nice deer from one these public sites and you can begin researching your options by contacting your local Wildlife Resources Commission or the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Let the person you speak to know that you are new to the hunting community and are looking for assistance in finding public areas to hunt in.

Did You Know?

White tailed deer mate in November in the norther parts of their range and in January or February in the southern parts of their range.  The female has one to three fawns after about six months after mating.  Fans are reddish brown at birth with white spots that help camouflage them.  They can walk at birth and forage for food a couple days later.  They are weaned at about six weeks.  Their mother leaves her fans well hidden for hours at a time while she feeds.  If she has more than one fawn, she hides them in separate places.  While they are waiting for their mother to return, the fawns lay on the ground with their head up  and necks stretched out flat on the ground.  This makes it harder for predators to find them.  Female fawns may stay with their mother for two years, males usually leave after a year.

Black Bear

Attention Gladwin, Baldwin, and Red Oaks Michigan, Black Bear hunting starts today..good luck and dont get mulled by one!

Tip: 1) Before coming up north for the hunt, wash all your clothes twice. First with laundry detergent and then a second time with just water to make sure all the soap perfumes are out of your clothes.

2) If you smoke, bring some nicotine patches so you don't get the craving while you are in the tree stand. The big trophy bears are older and smarter and know what tobacco smells like and they know it comes from humans. Not smoking will give you a better chance at a trophy bear. All animals have an instinctive fear of smoke and fire.

3) Stay very quiet. Bring some mint flavored throat lozenges with you in case your throat gets scratchy. This will help keep you from coughing.

4) Use unscented deodorant, soap and shampoo.

5) Stay still. A bear's visual acuity is largely based on movement. Actually, that's true with most animals.

6) After breakfast or after lunch, either brush your teeth with mint toothpaste or chew mint gum while you are in the tree stand. When people go camping in Ontario's parks, the first thing the ranger says is keep gum and toothpaste out of your tent. Black Bears go nuts over the scent of mint. So mint toothpaste and gum will not only cover up any scent on your breath, it may even attract bears.

7) If you are going to drink alcohol the night before the hunt, which is a big part of any vacation, it's best to drink beer. The next day, the beer smell in your body slowly dissipates and makes you smell like bread. Other forms of alcohol tend to give you more of an artificial chemical smell. You may not notice it, but the next morning, people who have not been drinking can smell it on you. A bear's sense of small is about 250 times better then a human.
