I am heading down the shore for the second week of firearm, which maybe a good thing from the reports we have heard. Only two shot in the whole club. The weather has not been great and most of the club does not stay too much past the first weekend. I plan on heading down Friday around lunch time and hunting Saturday morning. I am hoping to have better luck with less pressure and hopefully better weather.

Just found out my rifle zero got knocked off by three feet (took a shot on a coyote and saw the round splash three feet high). Glad I noticed now but pissed to think this is why I missed two deer Saturday. Zeroed and ready for pm. Here’s hoping for luck.

Apparently the guy killed a spike while WT deer hunting. Supposedly took heat from others due to not identifying his target as a WT deer when he described his experience afterwards.
DNR checked it in towards his bag limits without a problem.
I had seen Sika in Caroline years before they were identified as a legal game animal and subsequently added into the game book handouts.
As of now I donít think there is a county/ region specific regulation for sika so they may be legal in all counties for at least breech loading firearms season.

I seen one the other night while exiting a box stand when I had my wife out with me. Right at dark I was watching some does with field glasses. Soon as I cleared my rifle I looked over at what I thought was the last set of tires on the irrigation which in fact was a stag that popped out at last light. Bout 80 yards away lol.
Getting a lot of pictures on the trail cams of some nice six pointers in the field but always well after dark. Caught me entirely by surprise but it was clearly her fault for not using good situational awareness prior to exiting the gunning location.

She has now been formally demoted to reparations such as overseeing homemade potato soup, cash for feeder corn and purchasing her own field glasses.

Yeah there are no county restrictions for Sika. Separate bag limit for them. Hopefully theyíll keep on spreading. Iíve heard they are very good eating. One of these days...

Probably not this year as I am pretty certain I wonít be doing my annual Eastern shore hunt.

Yeah, Sika used to be legal in a few counties only then finally Caroline was added in a few years ago. Now it appears the language has changed because they're spreading out.
Best way to get them completely spread out is to continue hunting them.

I seen some small bucks this evening but let them go.They came in at different times scent checking for does. Only one doe came out to whats left of the CP after it was raided last evening by about five or six of them at 4 o'clock.

I also seen some jet fighters come over the clear cut from behind around 3:30 pretty low. It was two of them, the one in front had the wingtips vertical to the ground as he veered left in behind the other one as they passed through. That was pretty cool to see. I hope they do it every day to help get the deer moving because it wasn't very long afterward that they started popping out.
