I recently decided to start filming my hunts and trying to get some hunting footage. I have been waiting on a cable to be shipped so I could download them. The cable arrived today, and I figured out how to download them. So hopefully I can share some of my filmed hunts. My first video I downloaded is from an afternoon hunt the day after Thanksgiving. It’s short, and doesn’t have any big bucks in it, but I’m learning how to do it, and hopefully I will get better with it and the editing, the downloading, the filming hunts by myself, and all the details that make good hunting footage. I wish that I would have been doing all of this at the beginning of the season, most of the best hunting footage is when the deer rut.
I’ll try to get some better videos on here soon. Hopefully I can get some great hunting footage of some big bucks to share. We have several big deer on our club, I just hope to be able to share more filmed hunts this year especially if some of the does that were not bred come back into estrous making the big deer rut.
This morning I headed out to our club to do some deer hunting. I got there well before daylight and it was one of those mornings when I just couldn’t decide where to hunt. I finally chose a stand and got my gear ready and hit the woods. I took my camcorder in hopes of getting some good footage of some deer. It was in the upper twenties, and man it was cold. Right after daylight I caught movement coming through the pines, it was a deer and she had two fawns with her. I was able to get some good footage of them. I was hoping one of them would smell pretty for one of our big bucks. But that was not the case, they fed around for a while, but no big boys showed up. I hunted until about 10:00 a.m.
It was a great day to be in the woods, although I didn’t see any big deer. But I had to leave to go see my step-dad who is in the hospital with pneumonia. I had planned on hunting all day but I needed to go check on Pop, which is what my boys call him. He has had a rough week, but seems to be getting better. Get well Pop we hope you feel better soon. Next year maybe we can go hunting in Kansas like we have been talking about. A quick story about my step dad he harvested a beautiful trophy whitetail several years ago in Walton county in Georgia, and every time I tell him I’m going deer hunting, he asks me when are you going to get one bigger than him? As he is pointing to the monster buck hanging on his living room wall. One day Pop I’m going to get one bigger than him, hopefully, fingers crossed.
