Hunter or Prey?
Written by: Steven Chojnacki, 9/24/2010 Steven Chojnacki of Wausau, WI, gets a Bear and a Deer during an expedition titled "Hunter or Prey" written for his english class and posted to ShareYourHunt.com, Chippewa County Wisconsin, 2009
Every year in Wisconsin thousands of blaze orange hunters head to the woods to kill a trophy buck during gun season. After six years of hunting, I was hoping to get my opportunity to kill a monster buck. During all of my years of hunting, I was always the hunter, but the 2008 gun deer season changed that and proved to me that I may be the prey.
"I did what Wisconsinites would call “spray and pray” and I unloaded my gun on it. It now was sprinting through a cut down corn field. I reloaded my gun with six more shells. I started shooting again; it was now about 200-250 yards away. I could see branches breaking and dust flying right underneath it. I was almost hitting it. I had one shot left, KABOOM!"
It is the second week of deer camp, and I hadn’t seen any deer. I woke up one morning to my mom shouting, “Get up! You’re helping us do a deer drive today!” My first thought was, “God I don’t want to wake up. It’s way too early and way to cold out.” I eventually got up to find 20 people in my garage. I knew what that meant. It was time for the final big push we do at the end of season to harvest the last of the deer. I had given up on the chase for a trophy buck, due to the disappointment of not seeing any deer the entire time I had hunted during the season.
There are two basic roles you can take on during a deer drive, the driver or the stander. When I say driver, I don’t mean driving around in a car either. Driving means walking through woods, brush, over and under fences and logs, and through swamps and creeks, and all of this is done while wearing about 10 pounds of clothes and carrying a rifle in hand. The drivers are the people that usually see the most deer, but they get the least amount of time to shoot it. The standers, on the other hand, have the easy job. They just stand in a field at the end or beginning of a drive, and watch for deer, and shoot.
Being the youngest person in the group of people gathered for a drive means you are almost always a driver. By some act of God the group told me I could be a stander on this big drive. I was happier than a fat kid with chocolate cake. Then my excitement faded quickly when the group told me where I was going to stand, in the beginning of the drive out in a gravel pit. No deer come running through there! They usually all get shot before they get to the spot where I was standing. But I was set there in case a deer might get through and run back behind everyone.

Joe's First Buck
Joe got his first buck with the bow on opening weekend, a spiker.
He shot it Saturday @ 6:30 PM but we lost the trail at 9 so we didn't find it until 8 am the next morning. But don't worry, the DNR says there isn't a wolf problem in northern Wisconsin!

Hawkins — Dexter McKittrick already had a full day by most measures.
The 17-year-old had done early-morning chores on his family's Rusk County farm, attended 11th-grade classes at Flambeau High School, gone to football practice after school and then returned home and tended to the dairy herd in late afternoon.
All in a day's work for an able-bodied member of a Wisconsin farm family.
But he wasn't yet done with his Sept. 9 "to-do" list. And as commendable as his work had been so far, the last item - hunting with dad - is gaining McKittrick the most recognition.
Editor’s Note: Today’s column comes from David Rainer of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The subject of his story, turkey hunter Tom Kelly, will need no introduction to most turkey hunting enthusiasts.
Incredibly, Tom Kelly is about to complete his 70th season in the Alabama turkey woods with no signs of slowing down.
Shortly after wolves were taken from the federal endangered species list, at least three were taken this weekend by Wyoming residents. According to Wyoming officials, all three of the confirmed kills came in the newly designated predator zone for wolves. Inside that zone, the animals can be shot on sight without limits, as long as [...]
By the time the sun is high enough to illuminate the patch of oak trees on the hill, a herd of whitetail deer (Odocoileus virginianus) will have been feeding in the shadows for quite some time. A group of mature does, fawns and a few bucks browsing on the acorns strewn across the ground stop [...]

As I tried desperately to locate a tom willing to investigate my lustful yelps, a pleading hen yelp broke the mid-afternoon air.
Every now and then I would get the courtesy gobble as a tom would announce his presence and then follow his hen to abide by her wishes while moving out of earshot.
