  1. Earlier
  2. Is this an app? Looks very beneficial having all of the data in one small screen!
  3. I appologize for a lack of users on this forum. I wanted to wait until after the season to start promoting it. After that, we should be seeing more activity here.
  4. That sounds reasonable Garrett. It's crazy because I have had very limited success from doe bleats but my wife has called in several good bucks with it, I guess it's all in how you hold the can. Lol
  5. I’ve had success using doe bleats over rattling from lockdown to late season. Usually after the 20th of Nov and through rifle season towards the middle of December. Do you think its because the bucks arent wanting to fight? Seems like rattling only brings in young bucks looking for the doe being fought over. Kansas
  6. Happy Thanksgiving to all! Hope everyone enjoys family, friends, some good food and maybe a little relaxation. Bacon wrapped venison on the appetizer menu here, can't wait!
  7. not me but interested in seeing what people come up with.
  8. I am going to grind up some meat for breakfast sausage. Anybody have a killer recipe to share?
  9. I'm posting this for a friend SONY HXR-NX100 camcorder Sony NP-F970 battery Sony NP-F770 battery Azden SGM-PDii shotgun mic Rycote Classic Softie Windshield Audio Technica Pro88W lapel mic Camera mounted LED Light Pelican 1510 waterproof travel case The cost for all this new is $2,260. I’ll take $1,700. less than 20 hours recording time, probably a lot less. I bought it all from B&H Photo in June of 2017. I also have Benro TAD38C carbon tripod Sirius P204SR monopod Manfrotto 128RC fluid head I’d take $100 a piece for these
  10. Thanks Bill. Great Surprise buck this fall! Would like to see you catch up with the blind eye buck on that ridge top. good luck!
  11. thanks guys. certainly proud of this one.
  12. Great buck Chris, congratulations!!
  13. That looks like a good one! Nice job!
  14. Hi All, good to see this new forum starting, I'm on the Realtree forum which I enjoy, I've thoroughly enjoyed watching Midwest Whitetails over the years with Bill, Jared, Mike, Owen and the Public Land guys, informative and some great footage over the years. I had success here in Mass on 11/8 with a good bow buck, came primarily to a rattling sequence and then a couple of soft grunts brought him into range, looking forward to the rest of the season here. Good luck to all and hope to see more start joining in here. Chris

Posts should be made to inform or generate or continue a discussion, not to anger a large portion of the forum. — No brand or personal bashing.

Posting of any personal information of fellow posters including names, addresses, phone numbers, email address, IP address, etc., is prohibited. — Don’t attack the moderators. If you have a problem with a story, post, issue, rule, etc., send us an e-mail. Don’t trash us on our forums. We have to serve a large membership and can’t please everyone.

There is no need to fill up the forum with a bunch of personal messages. — On-going disagreements. If you and a fellow poster have an ongoing disagreement, the best solution is not to reply to any posts from that user and vice versa. It is a major distraction to other users. — Labeling is not productive. For example, calling a poster or a group of posters a particular name takes away from the discussion and is really a subtle type of personal attack. Members of this site can be very complex and have differing opinions on many subjects. Let’s explore those opinions and not stifle discussion with labels. — Treat new members with respect. forum.midwestwhitetail.com is adding new members every day and it takes a while for some to catch on. Instead of attacking a new member that makes an honest mistake, be a Good Samaritan and post some useful tips or hints. — Don’t be discouraged. This list is meant to put an end to the in-fighting and ugliness that occasionally crops up on forums.
