Didn't see anything but fresh tracks going in.  And then fresher tracks coming out.  Lol.  Didn't go to the spot I wanted to buddy overslept and to get in there is like putting on a drive so need another guy to post up for a bit.  

But 3 deer went right between our stands this morn while we were sitting.  Close!   He hasn't tagged at all this year and was hoping he would.  Back out this pm soon. 

Thursday we are gonna try again in stand I was gonna go to. It was deery today but none walked out close enough.

Turned out ok size, got heart and both lungs . Came home because I can’t get deer across drainage ditch, friend from behind my spot got deer with his ATV .

So since I can’t get to most stands or bring deer across without swimming ,I’m home cleaning gear ,drinking beer and thinking deer.

Congratulations Fletch! I hunted Parish this morning and nothing. Not even a fresh track to get on.

You really think it could be done with a atv and a winch? I was thinking about building a tower but this could be much easier. My problem would be getting it into the spot I want.

Probably. I'm sure a snatch block would be invaluable too.

I've been hunting this stud since I saw him mid bow season.  Passed on a doe opening day at 20 yards.  Been out everyday but Thanksgiving afternoon, when did he show, 4pm that day.  Hopefully he comes tonight!!!

Yes. There’s a trick to it. I ran The strap from the metal loop on the bottom of the platform to the bucket on the tractor. We then assembled the ladder and stood it up in the middle between the tower and tractor with the strap going over the top of the ladder. Stood it right up no problem. Seen videos of guys with ATV winches doing the same thing.

Out for final sit of Thanksgiving vacation this PM. Figured I would do the Giants a favor with my lucky charm of not watching.

Kicked up a doe on walk in. She appeared out of thin air and disappeared back into the same thin air. No snow, no green gives them a nice advantage. My eyesight and woodsmanship are woeful. Hopefully she didn't go too far and brings back some company.

A balmy 49 and no wind in 3g.

Good luck to all out there.

Yep. Here ya go. It wasn’t inexpensive, I caught It on sale for $3600 with the tower. Setup took about 6-7 hours with a buddy helping. Standing it up took my tractor and a 60ft long heavy strap along with some ingenuity. You could also do it with an ATV and a winch. 

I also grabbed a buddy heater heater and the curtain kit for it  

Its a lot of money, but the quality is top notch, and it should last for a very long time with minimal maintenance. Buy once cry once.

Thanks man!  I think this next year I have to fix the road, about 500 yards of old abandoned town road.  Probably going to cost close to 5 figures for that.  Also going to get the soil tested and plant some stuff in our fields.  Then perhaps the next year we can invest in something like this.  I know JUST the spot I'd like to put something like this eventually.  Trick will be getting my dad to not smoke in it.

Had a fun day in the fog and wet snow tracking. We were on deer off the start, jumped a doe in the heavy fog and had no time for a shot before she was gone out of sight. 

Switched areas of the mountain and again was on deer quickly. I was having fun tracking a young buck, he was about to bed and I got distracted by some blood in a different set of tracks and as I was working that situation out I jumped the young buck who was with a couple of doe. I was within three steps of seeing them before I turned my attention to the bloody fawn track. Oppsie 

I would have been interested in the doe not the buck. 

The wet snow was like walking around on a beach and tired me out faster than it should have. Lol

So this morning I decided I was going to sit in "my" stand since i haven't been seeing much of anything since gun started. For the first time this year we had some corn and beans on the opposite side of the lease so i had concentrated most of my time closer to the food. This was leading to tons of deer being seen during bow but as soon as rifle started the deer I was seeing dwindle to almost nothing.  So about 8:30 I am once again seeing nothing and I am thinking about how much i miss bow. Out of nowhere I catch movement in the ravine and see a deer then quickly realize there are two. The 2nd deer is a buck and as I find him in the scope I am trying to determine if he is a shooter. ( self imposed 6 or better lease rules) I see he has 2 on each side and catch a brow tine also and decide I am taking the shot when I can. He moves to a spot where i have a nice slightly 1/4 away and squeeze the trigger. He doesn't flinch so i shoot again with my autoloader and down he goes. Was pleased to see he was a small 8 when i got to him. My 3rd biggest deer...all from the same stand. Super happy to have him.

      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
