Well it was a good hunt but not a great hunt. Saw fresh tracks right where I expected them to be but couldn't get to the piece of land I knew they were in as I ran into another Hunter so I back tracked and hit a few other areas but didn't see anything. Was still fun and got some exercise. Thought this was cool where the deer crossed this log. f1f7f8f5f777c05361765857a179ce14.jpg7edc81abf30e00a35f95c044e5beb1c4.jpg

How beautiful! Only squirmed away for a couple hours and saw nothing, not even a track but I had state land to myself again which seems to be more and more common as the years go by.

Hunting a ~2000 acre property that only allows gun hunting for 5 days and limits to 25 hunters/day by lottery draw. In the first 4 days of season, only 3 does were killed!! WTF!! Absolutely PATHETIC!! I walked ~1/4 mile to and from my stand this afternoon in the fresh snow and never cut a track. When I checked out tonight, I was told that no deer were seen today by any of the hunters. Moral of the story, be thankful and don't take for granted if you have a decent place to hunt.

A wise man (Jack Daniels?) once said, "Sometimes you just need to say, WTF!?!?

Just had to snap this pic of my home as I was coming back in from the tree stand. Didn’t catch the 3 doe standing in the backyard as I took the picture. The front porch serves as the hunting lodge where friends gear up to go hunt or wind down with an after hunt beer.

17. Gentle breeze. Few inches of fresh snow. Covering the trees. I can already picture a buck trying to sneak through and me full send. Good luck to everyone going out.

Current situation.  Doe bound down into golden rod / brush at 80 yards. She’s bed down right in front of me. Almost plugged her but waiting for hopeful trailing buck.

Nice,action. I only have a buck tag left,until MZ that is. I will go out in the snow though,that is always fun to see where and how the deer move in this.

She’s still bedded. She must drive a Subaru Forester as no bucks came to play.  Another doe n fawn just scooted through off my other shoulder.  Gorgeous morning !
