The opening day of Sept 1st 2019, was pretty pleasant woke up to temperatures around 64 degrees quite humid but a slight breeze made it feel great with a hoodie on, my friend Bo accompanied me. The morning spots we picked weren’t so great we saw a few but only shot one. The afternoon it really picked up on a new spot that I decided to try, bagged 7 in just over an hour! The next morning, Labor day, I took a break from dove and took my dad fishing since he hadn’t been out of the house in a while, then I went back out, with my daughter Ahri, to that same spot I went opening evening. I let Ahri run the camera…. she could use a little more practice but overall she did alright haha, we bagged 7 more in about an hour they were loving that Mojo decoy. Ahri was pretty damn good at remembering where the birds fell, way better than me anyways.
Overall it was a pretty enjoyable weekend, it was great to get out of the house and back into the woods (or field rather), and a great way to start the fall hunting season.
I think I have the buck I shot last year haunting me, I cannot for the life of me slow down and concentrate on what im doing, 3 weekends in a row shot and missed 3 deer from not taking an extra half a second to make sure im using the correct range marker in my scope that buck fever tho.
Hopefully i can get past this i had it really bad for 3 years with rifle, after i harvested my first deer i haven’t got buck fever with a rifle since. It’s pretty rough knowing that in the last 3 weekends i could have put 3 deer in the freezer but my nerves caused me to lose out.
Two of the three deer ive shot at were at 30 yds and for some reason I used the 20 yd marker for both, shot went right under. Then the one i had at 20 yds…… i used the 30 yd marker. In practice I don’t have any issues ranging and shooting guess i just need more practice. Thanks for reading and watching! More videos coming soon.
Had a bunch of fun and learned a lot of new things this fall. Deer season is right around the corner so stay tuned for the deer hunting videos!
video was shot using my Crosstour CT9500 and Akaso Brave 4.
To help with my hunting streams ive purchased a couple of tripods over the past couple years which are nice except when im moving around a bunch it can get tiresome to keep folding them up and down bending the legs or what ever, i was shopping around for some mounts on amazon but couldn’t really find anything that did what i wanted which was to clamp on and hold the camera out to the side and horizontal, on my rifle something that clamps on top wouldn’t be bad because i have a scope, on this i need line of sight down the barrel so i can aim. The best part is i had most of this stuff just lying around in the shop i only had to buy the hose clamps, so this cost about a buck.
REVISION: I had to add another hose clamp to hold it still, and the socket rail was too thin and flimsy made my phone vibrate all the time, so i replaced it with some 1/8″x1″ steel strap cut and bent to fit. I still need to find a way to more securely hold the phone on it fell out of the clamp about 75% of the time i shot.
- 3/4″ pvc T fitting
metal bar from an old socket rail with the clips removed.
- 1/8″x1″ steel strap (the socket rail was too thin and flimsy)
- 2x 1/4″ x 3/4″ bolts with nuts ny-lock is best for this application
- 1x phone clamp this is what i used very tight spring loaded grip
- 2X .75″ – 1.5″ hose clamp
- 1/4″ drill bit + drill
- die grinder with cutoff wheel
- 7/16 end wrenches
- spray paint [flat colors for camo effect..ish]
- flat head screw driver
