4 does and a spike tonight. I'm pretty sure my big 8 is dead now also. Heard a shot up the road, as I drove past they were loading a real big 8 into a truck. This was him, I'm hoping it's a different buck but I have doubts. Screenshot_20221114-082730.jpg

I'm really hoping he shows back up soon. I'm not holding my breath though. The 10 hasn't shown up since the last day of archery either. I had a feeling both of those bucks were in trouble, they were traveling too much for their own food, I was getting them both multiple times a night.

Here's the MIA 10, he was in daylight Friday morning, I got him every night, multiple times. Im really hoping he makes it past everyone, with another year I think he could explode. Screenshot_20221121-180852.jpgScreenshot_20221121-180923.jpg

These guys are the real deal. No shit they have hunters from 14 to 90 at camp. Been around a long time. Family is from Maryland. Has property here in NY then they go to PA opener at another property and finish it off back home in Maryland. I'm blessed to have them as neighbors. They are a second family to me. You should see the racks from the 90's in this camp.

Was a long last 3 days. Put in well over 8 miles since opening day.  Very few deer were spotted by my hunting party.  I took my dad home about 1030 opening morning and made it back to my stand by 1230 at 115 this big doe popped out at 30yrds. As soon as I realized she was alone I let her have went maybe 10yards.  
 

Be back out tomorrow morning at my opening day spot.  @REDNECK4LIFE32and I walked part of the property today and came across fresh tracks of what appeared a couple bucks trailing a doe. Never did see any of them.

Saw two Doe and fawns tonight. Thought it would come together for me when I heard grunting. It was a small spike. I'm taking a break and will pick up Teddi at WP then head to her Mom's house for Thanksgiving. Be back at it Sunday!

I don't know man, I still think 90% of the hunt is just dumb luck.

Lol, nope. Deer change with the seasons, our strategy has to change too. This year was really hot and primarily south wind, those are 2 really important factors in deer movement and location.

You both can be right.  It depends on deer density, the type of land your hunting, and how much land.  Does your land hold deer all 4 seasons or just one?  Does your land hold deer only during specific conditions?  Do you have the deer patterned?  It could be land that needs the rut to have the bucks moving through it and then it is dumb luck.

Passed up at least 7 bucks. Not live right now but some photos from the weekend opener.
One trail cam pic I let walk Sunday evening. Some others I never got pics of because I was prepped and ready hearing them coming in pushing doe.

72 yard broadside on mid sized doe, dropped her where she stood.  

   

No tag soup this year, now I can relax and hunt trophy bucks and bear.

 

Was hoping a buck would swing by and check out the crime scene, but no such luck.

Did luck finally strike?
