    quiet day, but end of conflict.

    Well today as I have done since deer season opened, I looked at both my detector and shotgun in my front seat and debated on which to do while I had an hour to play. Lately my detector has usually won out, but today, where deer season is winding down,I grabbed my shotgun and 15 minutes in the woods and I had my tag filled with a nice spike horn. Now there is no more conflict and as long as the weather holds out I don;t have to debate, I can just grab my detector and go for it without second guessing myself...
    So many promising sites to detect...so little time....

    Hi Mainedigger
    I actually started metal detecting after my first daughter was born because I didn't have enough time to bowhunt and fish. Now I spend more time md'n than I ever did those other things. I really do miss the freezer full of venison.
    Congrats on the whitetail.

    Gypsy...not sure where you are at, but in Maine the shotgun/rifle season for deer ends the end of November, however after that there is 2 more weeks of muzzleloader season....woods aren't free and clear yet, so if you are out there, keep the orange on...

    You might explain that there's too many deer for the available food and you don't want to see them suffer and starve to death.

    Maine, congrats on the venison. Good luck on the detecting, at least with it you don't have a bag limit.

    What? No photo of the spike buck? C'mon, let's see the results of that hunt.

    It's sometimes tough to know which hobby to do at any given time, but there is a timeframe in which to hunt, so it's good you got your tag filled while you could. Now you can enjoy some good venison jerky (ah, my favorite) and a cold drink after a hard day metal detecting!!! That's my idea of a great way to enjoy the best of both hobbies. Mmmmm
