  1. I only hunt from the ground and am usually moving to different spots on the properties I hunt (mix of private and public). I like to have both binos and range finder as I usually don't have set distances locked in from a fixed vantage point. I use Tim Burnett's bino system: https://solohntr.com/product-category/gear/binocular-systems/ I find it very comfortable, has a pouch for range finder, loops you can stick a call in and magnetic close for the binos. Also has additional straps that allow you to let the binos dangle without needing to place them back in the pouch if you have to grab your bow fast. The only thing I don't like is the material on the inside of the pouch tends to make a squeaking noise when I placed the binos back in. I glued a piece of felt to it to dampen the noise.

  2. Hope so. Moving over the last week kept me out of the woods. Hopefully I didn't miss much. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  3. Good luck. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  4. Young six chased two does across a field tonight when I dropped my son off at a friend's just north of 84 in Carmel. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  5. Sat till dark in 3g. No action. Packing up and standing up to go I spooked two. Don't know if they were bedded and unseen all that time or started to move through after dark and I spooked them. Anyway, beats packing, moving boxes and painting. I will be back at that tomorrow for the final push before our moving day. Hopefully can wrap early enough for a PM sit. Good luck to all headed out tomorrow. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  6. This week's photos. They are up and about, starting to eat some gruel and show some personality. Looks like they have started the separation process. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  7. Out for the first time since last Thursday. After spending the last five days closing on a new house, moving boxes, painting and prepping the new digs I needed an afternoon sit. Final push of painting tomorrow before final move on Friday. Quick sit till dark planned now. Same wind and spot I saw large buck with a small spike work a scrape last week. Hope they are still around. Good luck to all out there. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  8. Out for a quick evening sit overlooking a few trails and a funnel. Wind made it easy to walk in, but gusting in every direction. They may not have heard me, but every deer within a mile probably got a good whiff. Last likely sit for a bit for me. Closing on a new house tomorrow and likely busy the next week moving. Good luck to all out there. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks. Mom looks like she is ready to come home. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  10. This week's photos are in. Their eyes are open and they are now mobile. Mom and pups all doing well.
  11. Exciting short sit this evening on the ground in a blowdown. Nice 8 came in just at sundown. Tore up trees, dug a nice scrape and took a leak in it. His very little brother came in, barely a spike, and tried to spar with him. Big brother moved off and little brother came in to me. Eventually he ended up 10 feet away tops. Finally he saw me, stomped, head bobs, then finally blows and walks off. I know where the big guy is hanging, so hopefully I can get him to make a mistake during the daytime. Beat watching this disaster of a yankees' game. I am glad we locked up Severino to a contract. Can't let his lockdown playoff performances hit the free agency market.

  12. Out till 830 in 3g. Something moved through in the dark. Not enough light to see what it was. 47 degrees and low cloud cover. Cool, damp morning and no wind. Good luck all. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  13. Definition of frustrating.... Sat from 1 to sunset, wind in my face overlooking a trail from bed to acorn flat. Saw zilch. Packup and slow walk back to the house. Spook a deer bedded within eyesight of my house. Probably was there since noon. Anniversary tomorrow. Quick sit in the morning and that's probably it for me. Good luck to all going out there.

  14. Will keep him and your family in our prayers. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  15. And the squirrels are out in full force. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  16. Out in 3g. Barely any wind. Very crunchy walk in. Beautiful sunrise breaking. Good luck to all out there. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  17. No luck cutting off the buck I spotted earlier today. I hoped he was bedded for the afternoon so went out in the evening on a travel path out of the bedding area. No dice. Walking back after sundown heard four rapid succession rifle shots (in a shotgun only area) from neighbor's property across the street followed by hooting and hollering. Kinda sucks that the likely choices are either people poaching or someone's mentoring a youth by telling them to shoot in the dark. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  18. Well some excitement. Had a nice six mosey through swamp about 70 yds out. He spent about 30 mins deciding which trail to take out. He picked the right one for him, wrong one for me. Have him a grunt, caught his attention but didn't change his mind. I let him mosey off and then moved. He's heading to one of two spots and I am trying to cut him off. I'll give it an hour or so here and then head back. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  19. Switched things up today. Just got into a spot overlooking wetlands / swamp. Light north wind in my face. Will sit til noon or one hoping they were up all night feeding and look for a midday stroll. Would love to say this was a well thought out full moon strategy but the truth is I picked my son up from a concert last night at 1 am and couldn't answer the bell this am. Good luck to all out there. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  20. Back at it for pm through dark. Overlooking trail on edge of thick wetland. I hope this is where they have been holding up. Good luck to all out there. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  21. The squirrels and chipmunks are up and about in 3g. Quiet other than that. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  22. Out in 3g for a work at home AM sit. Posted on a pinch point on a travel route with recent sign. Windy and swirling. Cooled off overnight. Good luck to all out there. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  23. Totally dead out. Even the squirrels have packed it in. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  24. Out for a short post work sit in 3g over a flat with acorns. Swirling wind and warm. Dubious odds of seeing anything tonight, but beats a rush hour train ride home. Good luck to all out here. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  25. Out this evening for a quick sit post work in 3G when rain abated. No deer but two Tom's (or a small flock of two very large hens) roosted in the trees behind me at sundown. Scared the hell out of me when they took off. Good luck to all headed out tomorrow and congrats to those that connected. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
