    I just got back from my old friend Wallace Fennell's hunting camp........ The day I got there he nailed a very nice 8 point buck...... Not a monster mind but, a very handsome fellow who should eat very well.........

    As soon as I entered upon the scene, the Becker Deer Jinx appeared out of nowhere ....... Last year was similar in many respects but, not as all encompassing....... Last year the jinx did NOT seem to affect those around me........ This year, if I was in the neighborhood, nothing harvestable showed up around Wallace either........I had two afternoons when I neither saw, nor heard so much as a freaking squirrel....... Saturday afternoon I noted the rustle of a single leaf at 5:17 pm....... It was disheartening to say the least....... After I left and before Wallace so much as actually got in the damn woods a LARGE 8 pointer screamed and pleade to be shot and, of course Wallace did........And sooooo.....

    A plea for help..... Please use whatever karmic juice you have to kick start the departure of my deer jinx to ANY other place...... Preferably to some nasty wretch in Timbuktu or Outer Slobovia or maybe send it to Putin Or Jihadi John......

    All pleas to alleviate the dreaded Becker's Deer Jinx will be greatly appreciated.........

    Thank You in advance for your help......

    PS ......

    Had a great time with my friend and mentor....... We ate well, shot a little sporting clays, swapped just a couple of marginal truths, solved most of the world's problems(I am sure you have noted a healing trend) and spent some great time in a lovely patch of Eastern Hardwood Forest........

    Damn, Ethan... That's some awful Juju you have there. Have you considered taking a more direct strategy and use a BK9 to impose your will upon the forest?

    Ethan... sadly, I also am jinxed. Just before rifle season, my friend drove through his 100 acre property, where at one point, we saw at least 5 doe and 3 bucks...
    Two weeks later I am miserable up in a tree for hours, and the whole property, nothing moves. A man can only be silent balancing while sitting on a 4" tree branch for so long...
    Could it be that that bk2 on my hip has spread your jinx to me?

    Lol

    Ethan,
    Try using this old trick, it worked out for me. Put only one round in your rifle and the hunting gods will reward you.

    Did you name your rifle? Using the appropriate incantations and drinking the sacrificial potion?

    If not . . .

    Cheers, Ed

    Here's how I handle similar situations.....

    Bet your friend(s) $50 that you will not see a deer. In fact, put a wager on him bagging one and you coming up empty-handed. Now, if your luck is similar to mine you will confuse the balance of nature, karma and the Easter bunny, thus causing you to lose your bet....which just happens to mean you will bag a 12 pt'er!!

    Good luck to ya!
    Dan

    Boss, maybe you should try spear season. You've got that angle covered.

    Hey boss, maybe you need to come up to Missouri to go drudging through the woods. It might help to have a change of location.

    Can't help ya, E. I seem to have the same effect on stripers when fishing. My line hits the water and they all scatter. Deer? I see 'em all the time....but then again I don't hunt them - yet. Saw one in my back yard this summer....surrounded by saltwater and treeless neighbor's yards. Still can't figure out how it got in there. I live on .89 acres and 1/3rd of that is house and pool.....

    Might set up a tree stand in the already made kid's tree fort....
