  1. Saw a 1.5 @ 7:00 then dead rest of morning. Nothing even in the brush to kick up. Most disappointing season since I started, though I did finally get one last weekend. Done until maybe muzzle loader now. Just too time consuming for very little harvest! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Dead for me today except one deer[emoji17] Even went through the brush they are normally in. Very surprising. No idea where they were today. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Weather is amazing today. Warm and nice breeze. 1.5 year walked up at sunrise. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. This clocks back thing, yuck so easy to be getting up. Weather amazing next two days and very much looking forward to start of xbow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Just watched a 1.5 yr chasing doe around 50 yards off Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Fourth year at this property I can confidently say now since last year the deer are down. Last year and this I simply am not seeing as many at all. Xbow May bring a respite as my range will increase at least. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Not a thing. Very surprising. Out soon and McDonalds on the way home. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. The only time I ever got a bow shot on a deer from the ground was my first ever time hunting. It wasn't entirely dumb luck, but it was 95% luck. I tried many times after that and spooked many deer. Never got a shot. Following the advice of people who actually harvest deer a lot I bought a climbing tree stand that first year and my shot opportunities went up by magnitudes. It's natural as a beginner to maybe avoid trying too much at once, but truly hunting deer from the ground with a bow is an advanced skill. You would be surprised how much even 15' up a tree makes a difference. I've had countless deer look up at me and if I stop moving they just shrug it off. That first season I went out over 20 times before I got a deer. I worked hard at it, but it was also the most satisfying one I ever got. Keep at it Also if you're on public land you can sometimes go multiple hunts without seeing a deer. Then you come into the forum and people on private land are seeing multiple deer in a single two hour sit. The hard to find deer on public land are a huge accomplishment, even if it's a modest size doe.
  11. Based only on what you said I think the theory is relatively sound. E.g. you can't smell a faint mint smell if your nose is over a can of open gasoline, but I imagine in practice, like with most products like this, it's impossible to really measure objectively and likely not very useful.
  12. I went through some of my used Rage blades this morning from previous two seasons and had to admit all were beyond hope. One was broken at one of the ribs, but the rest were all slightly bent, which makes resharpening quite difficult. The 1-2 that were still straight I tried resharpening on a stone but couldn't get them razor sharp. Could certainly be user error, though. G5 fixed of course are far more liable to be reusable, but I can only get them "pretty sharp", not package sharp, no matter how many times I try it on the medium and fine stones.
  13. Good luck. You know what else? I promise you hunting is not worth it if you run the risk of causing further shoulder damage. I hope you get better but if you are in doubt at all, back away from it. This coming from a guy who is now over a decade into knee pain due to an insatiable love of running in my younger years. I was too foolish to back off. If you can't get there, go get a Crossbow. You'll still get two beautiful weeks of weather early November. I love bow hunting but xbow is definitely pretty great, too.

    That bottom corner of the field where the trees wrap around it. I bet lots of activity there
