Deer Camp

Discussion in 'Indiana Whitetail Hunting' started by treehugger, Sep 26, 2006.

  1. Does anyone do an annual deer camp during the bow or gun seasons? I've never done it but going to have a few weekends this year with camp set up. First full weekend of bow season I'm going to have my camper setup for deer camp. Really looking forward to hunting mornings and evenings and hanging out with other hunters during the day and taking their money in the evenings playing euchre. Of course one of the best parts is eating all the great grub...deer brats and purple cabbage, chili, deer burgers, fried gills on the campfire, etc., etc. I sure feel sorry for people that don't hunt or fish...they don't realize all the "other stuff" that make the experience so enjoyable besides the actual hunting and fishing. Bring your money oldrookie and seabee...I'll need the winnings to buy myself some bigger huntin' pants after eatin' all that great food!!!

    For the last 15 years the landowner that lets us hunt his property has let us use his metal pole barn for our deer camp. Its furnished with poker tables and a wood stove. He has provided another barn for us to hang deer in. During gun season there is a constant flow of hunters dropping by to talk or show off the deer they had taken that day. Plus there is a check station about 5 miles away, its really a cool set up and we always have fun.
     
  5. Great way to experience hunting!

    When I was married my brother-in-law at the time and his cousin had a deer camp in Jackson County. It was the greatest hunting experience ever! Stayed in an old tin barn that they had placed two old wood burners in that kept the place about 50-60 degrees during gun season. We slept on old army cots and cooked over an open fire outside. Great deer habitat and this is where I shot my first deer. Me and some friends now are trying to find a place to set up our annual "deer camp" so we can start our own tradition. Great times, great food, great hunting and great memories and stories!!!
     
  6. Will be setting up camp at the local Izaak Walton League where we are members.
     
  7. Ever since I can remember, we have a deer camp at one of the local cabins where I grew up in Dubois Co. Normally deer camp ran from Thursday night before the opening day of Firearms season all the way to the 2nd weekend of firearms season. As far as food goes, anything you can imagine is fixed during this 11 day festivity. A opening ham is cooked on the night before the firearms opener (mouth is starting to water as we speak). The normal card games include: Euchre, Cinch (most of you probably have no idea what the heck this game is except Scrapewatcher), point rum (dime a point, poker, etc. As much as I love to bow hunt, this the week I look forward to all year long.
