Same today in 7A-only 4 hr sit  NADT (not a dam thing), excluding a black squirrel 

I must have missed your earlier posts. Noticed you were a Phoenixer as well. I have not heard to many shots the last few days but have not been out as I'm tagged out in 7A until Monday.

Got up here a little later then I wanted to. Heading out for the afternoon going to try the middle of my property and leave the pond area alone until tomorrow. 29 degrees light snow about 3-4” on the ground.

had a good sit last night. Really got to test my new vortex bino's in some low light conditions in the pines. For the black friday sale of $128 shipped these diamonbacks are impressive. Of course anything is nice compared to my old nikon 10x32's. I am going to get a harness for sure though.

Hey Belo, I've been in the market for a new pair of binos, what power are the Vortex binos you got?

I'm not thrilled that these are made in china, not because they're lacking in quality from what I've experienced so far, but because I really do try to buy american when i can. But they were $128 on black friday and I couldn't resist. I am used to my small light nikons that were like 10oz, and these are 20 something. But the trade off in weight and size is worth it I think, especially with the harness. I think I'm most likely to really see the benefits turkey hunting with a much larger FOV and better clarity, so I will be able to get eyes on target much quicker. Something I've struggled with before.

I love my vortex 10 x 32's compact, but clear and great field of view.

Wow, great price! I bought those same binos two years ago and they were about double that price. Let us know how you like the harness. I bought a harness, but it seems cumbersome with everything else I wear during cold weather so I haven't really used mine.

love this harness.  So light and does not inhibit movement at all.  Easy on off. And holds binos secure to chest.  No issue shooting a bow or gun with it on.  I got rid a an FHF harness in favor of this.  So much easier.   All elastic so no need to adjust for heavy or no layers either.

I like the look of that. That thing compared to mine is like a string bikini compared to overalls!

These are nice.

I usually sling binocs under one arm and use a standard neoprene neck strap; but when you want a harness these beat the traditional wide strap harnesses.


Give it a name, apply human sentiment, and its no longer a wild animal its a Disney character.

Adding insult to injury, they avoided me in the huntable area (no fur seen), but one was back feeding in the neighbor's garden when I got home!  

There is also deer poop on my front walkway.  Fantastic.

My son and I hunted the woods in the am and saw zip. Deer seem to be in the hayfields now. Saw spike and a doe same one from yesterday after lunch in field below my house. My son decided to do some still hunting in the hayfields along the edges and saw 4 deer and sneaked to within 50 yards of this lil buck. Not so easy with the crunchy ground!IMG_0550.jpeg

No doubt about it. Very frustrating. This spot too was my only private spot down here. Looked dynamite on paper but ive had problems all season with people messing with my stuff.

      Hey Everyone! I just uploaded a new video to my YouTube channel! If ya'll enjoy watching whitetails in the rut then you need to watch this! One of the coolest encounters that I've ever been able to video! All filmed off the back of my horse. Note: this is not on a deer farm. These are all wild free ranging whitetails! I'd love it if ya'll would give me some follows on my hunting pages! You can follow me on Facebook, Instagram  and YouTube at Cross Over the River Outdoors! I hope Ya'll enjoy the video! God Bless!

      Hey Everyone! Who's all ready to bust some thunder chickens upside the head!? Here's a short video to help get you fired up for those spring mornings!

      Hey Everyone! This is Louis Backlas/ Cross Over the River Outdoors. I just posted a new video to my YouTube channel that I though ya'll might get a kick out of! Have you ever used a decoy to hunt whitetails? If you haven't before you might want to start! I woke up one morning and look out my front window only  to find that my 3D deer target was in pieces all over the front lawn! A fired up buck decided to take his frustrations out on the target!  this took place sometime in November during the peek of the rut. Hope ya'll get a kick out of it!
