    I have to say I felt like one the other night cat fishing. Got a good snag and gave it yank. Was reeling in pretty heavy so I thought for sure I had a turtle. Well instead I was greeted by a pristine Deer Skull. Wish I would have taken a picture was the strangest thing I have ever reeled in.

    Yeah I'm feeling the fever! Now if I only had some Tippecanoe Co. property to hunt, I'd be chompin' at the bit to get the urban season going!

    LOL, no wonder they say it's the best thing they ever ate!:smile2:
    Heck man, just drive down 56th street near eagle creek park... someone'll hit one before too long... save ya a buncha trouble and you'll still have time and money to go fishin'! :wink:

    Now Now Dr. P......what about waking up at 4am, catching bait in the rain, spending endless hours spooling reels, making leaders, sharpening hooks, cutting up endless amounts of bloody messy cut bait, spending hours on the water to only catch one fish....we're not so different after all, eh?

    I'm aware of the urban deer zone. But never heard of a urban deer season. I thought youth deer season was Sept 27 and 28th was the earliest in IN.

    Correction!
    I just read that Urban zones open Sept 15th. Did not know that. I hunt an urban deer zone but I never go until after the first frost because of mosquitos. Plus it's just too warm to kill a deer for me. You'd have to cool them super fast.

    But good luck to those that choose to hunt then. If it wasn't for deer season I don't think I could bare Indiana winters anymore.

    For those of you that don't hunt deer. There is nothing like be settled in silently in a tree stand in the winter in total darkness and watch as the woods wakes up. If you haven't experienced it you wouldn't understand. The killings not it. It's the hunting.

    I passed on a big doe last year that had a snow white patch on the right side of her body about 16" square. A perfect target. This after sitting all firearms season without a decent shot freezing my butt off. I figured she'd been dealt a bad hand already. I did manage to take a couple after that. One for the freezer and one for the farmer that lets me hunt there.

    Will you show us all how you'd go about tackling one? I think that's something I would like to have front row seats to. :smile2:

    Ice is the best. I know what you mean about gear. I have slept in my 350 dollar shanty on the ice to justify the costs! Of course it's 70 deg in there as long as I don't run out of propane. It also has a bench seat that folds down into a bed.

    You should put a stand up along the Bash for those urban deer. Purdue also has a lot of land you can hunt if you sign up for it in time.
