Pressure isn't as high as they were calling for but still 30+; thinking the morning might be more slow than expected, too. PM should be better with pressure dropping due to the rain (sigh) system moving in, Saturday has turned into a rain day as well...Sunday is holding out still with very high pressure, no rain, but slightly warm at 50 degrees.

It's always rough not seeing the ideal day(s) laid out in the forecast. At a certain point, you just have to hunt. I'm thinking Sunday AM is going to be killer though.

All these spots look amazing!!!! Good Luck, hopefully we will all see some deer on the ground soon.  Im sitting in my office writing college rec letters.  I would much rather be in the woods.

Sadly I have to get work and abandon the nicest hunting days thus far. I saw a smallish 6 on the walk out. We stared at one another for a while. He seemed relatively unmoved by my presence. Hopefully 2moro is as splendid.

Just seeing that fawn 4hrs ago didnt do much for my motivation to do an all day sit. Think I'll head out soon and come back around 2:00 or so.

Funny that before turkey season started, I saw turkeys on every hunt. I regularly saw one flock of gobblers. Since season opened.... POOF... GONE!

I had just started packing up to leave and the second buck came by... I hate this situation, I'll end up sitting here another 2 hours now and see nothing... I hate morning sits, you never know when to get down.

I hate that they changed turkey season a few years ago to only 2 weeks.

New spot same story ...not a damn deer.  This is my view today 180 from right to left.  Got a corner of a cornfield in front of me an alfalfa field to my right about 80 yards and counted 6 apple trees within 100 yards. And not one deer.....will be back for the pm. 

Lots of sign.  Deer tracks and hair in the fence where they cross. But not a peep of a deer.

General consensus is 30+ creates more activity....blue bird high pressure days with temps below the average and a steady directional wind are what a lot of hunters "in the industry" or known for killing larger whitetails are describing as a perfect condition. I see a lot of activity on high pressure days as described above but holds pressure steady or begins dropping heading into a front/storm. Deer seem to know when to put on the feedbag. The front late last week had so many deer on their feet early - our target bucks were on their feet in daylight during that 48-hour period.

This October has only reinforced it for me. There's been a few cold fronts come through (for the season) with storms/pressure changes...lots of big deer have hit the ground in Oct. More so than normal, and most are tied to those fronts in some fashion.

We're getting to the point though where seat time goes up. Pre-rut behavior will be giving away to a variety of seeking, chasing, etc. Love/hate relationship with the rut. I shot a buck a couple years ago that went by 3x during a November morning. I had to yell things to it that would make my wife not happy with me...just to get it to slow down enough to arrow it. I was beyond mad at that point, lol.

Saw nine deer this afternoon. Seven flat heads, and two small bucks. All were just feeding. No sighting of the big buck I saw trailing a doe yesterday. Off work on Friday. Hope to see more rut activity then.

I'm pretty sure, where I was tonight, will be my opening day of firearms spot! My hunting partner built it for me back in September. Very large and thick swamp below, and a huge buckthorn bedding area on the other side. Got mowed trails and food plots in between. We were up there together and I pointed out a spot and said, right there would be the perfect spot for a stand! Next time I went up there, it was up! I have the best hunting partner! We rode the same school bus together! Have been best friends since 12 years old. Between us we've killed hundreds of deer. After every one, there was always a handshake and a bro hug. Our wives say we'd be lost without each other. They're right.20181029_204818.thumb.jpg.bbb520f2be14b142ae35747ed8a91144.jpg

Love this!   Same for me and my hunting buddy but not as many deer. But prob thousands of fish.  Lol.  We've been friends since 8th grade. Still hunt and fish together for 35 years.

Makes sense. I got out thursday last week before the storm Saturday and I saw what looked like a nice 8. The next day my uncle saw what he thought was a 10. Big deer for that property. No sightings since then.

Hoping thursday-sunday heats them up

So will you only hunt those great weather days? Or hunt most days and especially when the weather is great?  Seems like you guys are definitely doing something right with the deer you have taken and the seen while in the stand!!

      The procedure below to carry the bow is detailed below:
      You have to use a cotton towel or something similar. You have to wrap it around the bowstring. Doing so ensures that it will not cause an injury with the bowstring coming in contact with your body. It will not be that sharp either. Once you cover the bowstring with the towel, you have to wear it like a sling. So that it will not fall away from your body. The best way to cover the bowstring is to use a large enough towel. You can wrap it around twice as well. When making a sling out of the cotton towel, you have to ensure that you tighten it to get a snug fit. In that case, it will not slip away. Consequently, it will remain in place. When using this technique to carry a bow on your back, it is essential to practice before going in the wilderness. Only when you can move briskly and without noise using the scanning mechanism should you go ahead with it. To remove the bow, you have to hold it at the bottom. After that, you have to slip it over your head as well as arm. Doing so ensures that you can remove it quickly. When trying to focus on a prey, you need to remove the bow quickly. The technique for removal that we have highlighted above can certainly help you do so.

      Just want to relay an experience I had this weekend regarding hunting regulations and other hunters.
      I've had several  hunter's tell me last weekend(10/12/2020) that muzzleloader was open, it is not. I also had two other hunters last weekend confront me as to why my son was carrying around a rifle and hunting deer. I calmly explained the youth weekend and the rules around it. After that everything was cool and we continued our hunt.
      I know at the end of the day we're all trying to participate in a sport we love and maybe harvest some game. My thought is to just make sure you're up on your local hunting regulations. Not just so you are within the rules, but also so you can assert your right to be where you are, hunting the way you're hunting.
      I know when I have been operating outside of the regulations I have appreciated a person respectfully correcting my ignorance and I try to pay it forward by being informed and respectfully educating when required.
      Thanks for listening, off my SB...

      Hello,
      I am in the process of purchasing my first rifle to go hunting deer for the first time.  However, I have received contradicting information regarding the types of rifles that are legal.  Based on what I have read, it appears that I am able to use a bolt-action rifle with a pistol grip and a detachable magazine which holds 10 rounds.  However, I have been told that this is not the case. I can't seem to find where this is stated.  Can any one here provide me with some insight into this? I'd really appreciate it.
      Thanks in Advanced,
      Alfredo
