Had 5 doe and a button milling around since I got in the stand this morning. Button and fawn decide to feed and bed 15 yards from me. Then I hear the footsteps behind me and freeze. Yup he got my wind, but, he came back and with all the cover gone I couldn't draw. He walked by at 10yds and stopped 3 times and I was shaking so freaking bad. He was headed towards the fawn and his head was behind a tree but he saw me. Super exciting morning so far and a little bummed but going to stay after it. Good luck everyone out. Beautiful morning.

Neighbor across the road is blasting away at ducks. He ran a doe and 2 fawns over about 20 min ago.

No deer just turkeys. This snow is making it hard to see!!!!!! The oak leaves are falling like rain. Crazy how fast they are falling.

There's 4 in my hunting party today and everyone has reported they have seen deer. Anyone who has hunted tughill can attest that doesn't happen very often.

Property owner came in to work on some stuff. This is behind my house, gave me a good time to get out and make some breakfast. Think I’ll take the afternoon off and take the kids out. Woods are just starting to heat up and I’m off all week.

We had a small 8pt cruise by the outside edge of the plot around 8:50, by sons buck standards are diminishing as he was all about trying to get me committed our way, no dice. We’re bailing soon to setup another stand.

Just passed on 15yd shot at a nice (guessing 3.5 yr old) 8Pt cruising through nose to the ground. Trying to wait on one of my 2 target bucks or a nice 10Pt...for now anyways. So far that's the only deer seen since the deer that came by in the dark.

Just finished rattling, look behind me and 2 deer trotting in. Front one is a 4 maybe 6pt, second one is a good 8 or 10. They never slowed up never got closer than 60 yards...feels great getting that adrenaline pumping!

4 non-shooters last night and a small doe this morning.

And I don’t care, but sighting in your gun at your “range” in the freaking woods at 9am is a real dick move and super selfish

I've seen more deer in my backyard today than I've seen from the stand for the season.

Just had a 4 pt, a spike and 2 doe walk by but they were too far for little Squirrel to get a shot.

Gonna call it in 10 to go set a stand by Aunt Sherie.

And that’s why nonhunters think it’s easy.
