Hunt #5 on spot in 7J. Never got to hunt it last year as it was an active cow pasture. But have never sat here and not seen deer at least. Saw 3 doe all out of range, 2 turkeys and a beautiful gray fox.  Always see deer here but most often out of range. Did tag a nice doe here on the very first time I hunted it in '17.  But don't hunt here often as it the farthest drive for me and can only hunt it on an East wind and afternoon.

Hunt #10- 6S sunup to 10:15.  Got busted going in by 4 small does that came out across field. They came right over curious and I was pinned in the brush.  They ran away after getting to 50 yards. And ran right up trail by my stand.  Didn't see anything else.  On way to hunt deer everywhere and on mill Rd a box of donuts spilled all over the road and a doe standing over them..lol..... WTH?

Glad your hitting them.  I get so torn as to whether i should be fishing or hunting this time of year in early season.  And im too old to do both and get up at 4am for work these days!  lol.  used to do that fish til midnight then clean em and out to work early.  Have heard the bite has been great.  Yesterday afternoon the boat was calling my name but went out hunting.

Hunt #12 - 7F lease swamp stand. 4:30-dark. Had a doe in trail on the way in.  Hugged the brush hoping she would walk by. Don't think she saw me she was itching herself. Waited there about 10 min then slowly started to make my way down trail to see if she was there and could hear her in brush behind me headed the other way.   Close.  I really think this stand is gonna pay off this season. Seems to be lots of action there. Didn't see anything else.

Hunt #14- 7F on 10/18 pm 3-dark.  Had a big bodied spike at 12 yards. He came in and rubbed head in branches for a bit.  He got a pass but thought about it. Body was big for a spike. Would've been meat in the freezer but hoping for a doe soon.

Hunt #16- 6S Greenfield. Won't be hunting this spot again this season without moving stand. New neighbors there and no way deer are coming out in this field with them there yelling to each other and swearing at the dog all Eve etc..... Need to move stand to very top of hill away from that. Always see deer in this field somewhere for sure not Tonite. 

Saw a fisher walk just about under the stand

Didn't see a single deer all day.

Hunt #17- 7F lease scrapetree stand. Out with Corey- Fishdo.  Light - 9:45 .He picked the wrong stand damn it. Passed a 3 pt he would've shot.  Hope he gets a chance at it.  Walked out by scrapetree and walked right under stand. Saw another deer way down trail .  Pulled 3 cams and this stand was busy.  3 point lots of days and several does.  Can't get a doe to walk out for a shot.

Def. I didnt have either of these guys on cam til this last week. Unfortunately though I'm missing the bigger ones.  Hoping they get rutty and come back this weekend. 

Wait you live nearby....are you stealing my big bucks? Lol.  

Hope you've been out fishing , I hear nothing but walleye limits and buckets of perch.  Out in front of Marion manor Sunday there must've been 20 boats all off that 14-25 ft area towards Lewis pt and I am guessing pounding the perch. I should be fishing some but the pull of the deer season is just too much.

looks like high winds /rain coming your way ?!   Here too, ugh

Yeah looking like a wash out tomorrow.  But the silver lining is I am working.  But off on Thursday and Friday and looks like a temp drop into Friday. 

Kicking myself a little for not fishing Tonite it's beautiful out right now.  But by the time I get out of work and on the water it gets dark quick. And I am not a fan of night boating.  

Guys are tearing the fish after dark at the canal. Damn 4am alarm.  Work gets in the way of my hunt/fish time, it's annoying. Lol.
