  1. Got out tonight to a buddies spot. Early season rules, no doe and mature bucks only. Really hope I don’t regret passing on this fella. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Dad and I got out for a bit this afternoon. Light rain wasn’t too bad and it all but stop about golden hour time. Dad had a button and 4 pt less them 10 yds but they caught his scent or some movement and bolted. Couple doe around but no shot for me. Back at it in the am and evening tomorrow.

  4. Up and getting going for my first morning sit of the year. Passed on a doe with fawn on Friday from this spot. Hoping they’ll have a few more friends with them this morning. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Posted up on an alfalfa field edge hoping to catch the buck that was out of range on Friday. He walked past my blind setup at the bottom of the field and then faced off with me after sunset at the top.
  6. Dad showed up about an hour after shot and we started tracking. Found him less than 50 yards from shot in the thicket. Small 3 point. So I’m hunting with my dads lever action 3030. Deer comes out from where I expect him too. Line up shot, give him a “meh”, pull hammer back to take off safety, pull trigger and “click”. Gun never chambered a round when I racked the lever after loading. Deer still standing still looking. I slowly work the level, line another shot and bang. Single lung and liver shot. Liver was disintegrated. Quick recovery. Capes and dressed hanging for tomorrow.
  7. Took about a 60 yd shot on a small buck. Initial blood trail, in snow, is heavy but very dark, almost black. Waiting on dad to determine how to proceed.
  8. 3rd sit this year first time in a new location. Hunter cleared under brush to help ventilate field. Destroyed my cover but can see much farther into woods. A bit windy so they maybe hunkered down but the wind is in my favor.
  9. Second sit of the season, first post here. Came up on 4 doe right near my stand and let them walk off. They knew something was up but don’t think they made me. Hopefully they come back. Good luck all.
