End of Fox Season in PA
« on: February 18, 2013, 01:54:33 PM »
I hope every one had a good year, I had a nice laid back season and still learned more again. With me getting a cat early I did not have to hunt hard like some other years. I am glade because the older I get the harder it is to do the all nighters.
I am now ready for warm days and fishing. :-)
For a brief moment I could hear nature through all the noise.

     I  just got into the calling this year - Mid January to be exact.  I shot 3 fox an one coon.  Unfortunately I miss more fox than I hit.  I've had great success calling them in, I just wasn't able to close the deal many times.  I'm already looking forward to next year!  Its a great way to be out in the woods after the "normal" hunting seasons are over.  I'm addicted!!!

Misterjake...if you have the dough and desire I would highly recommend getting an ewcalls.com tripod.  I have a hard time missing critters when I use it.

It is the best piece of predator hunting equipment I own.  You will love it.

As long as I am not going beyond 500 yards I always carry mine.  The secret is to use bone support instead of muscle strength...the same way guys shoot service rifle.  Just put it up on your shoulder and the shoulder bone supports it and you don't tire.  I have 4 herniated disks from a semi professional skiing career and I hunt with mine all night long.  Like to hear what others users feel...

Well this is my seventh season. Not the most fur that I put down but then again I did not do the hunting that I have in the past seasons. The cat hunting did not pan out like I wish it would but such is life.

Buckwheat would you care to show a pic of your cat this season????? Love those cats.

Thinking about doing some yote hunting this march. But I am also looking forward to do some flyfishing this spring. Might have to do the night flyfishing this summer have not did that for a couple of summers. Have to get as much flyfishing that I can this early spring the wife and I are expecting our second child in the begining of June.

Started off really slow with an early miss. Midseason was great, then it got slow again until the last two days. Got a red Friday night and a grey Sat night.

Counting the days until Oct.

We had our best season. I introduced a friend to the sport, and in general had a real good time.
I am now trying my hand at tanning some fur. We'll see how that goes... ???

Hey Buckwheat, where in Lancaster Co. are you?
