Back out for the afternoon sit. Maybe a little early but that's fine by me. Had a red fox trot by already. Does anyone else stand the whole time in their treestand or ladder stand and not sit? Always afraid I'm going to miss something or get busted standing up if I sit.

I have the same feeling but if you are alert you can stand up pretty easily with out them seeing you. I fidget to much standing so I sit most of the time. 9 out 10 I get to stand that 10th time usually the deer is already on high alert and he would have seen you anyways. Take a seat and relax!!!  Lol

I was standing this morning and still got busted but he came in behind me. My brain just says stand so you can see everything. Might sit for a little but up well before prime time.

Seems like a good night for a sneaky sob buck to be about.  Dead quiet here, barely a whisp of a breeze.   LFG! Haven't seen a buck in the stand yet.

Hunted a new set this morning until 11:30, only a couple of spikes and 2 does, pulled a card after climbing down to find yet another big boy on the hill. Only night time pics...this is getting frustrating to say the least.

Second time out this year.  Would have been a perfect morning to be out but I was lazy, was 18 and a heavy frost. 46 now and sun beating on me and in my eyes. Forgot my ball cap

Got in early for the PM watch. Bumped a doe neat the truck and another while picking what tree to climb. Found 2 small rubs and a tree 18 yards from one. Hope I get to see who made the rub.

Everytime I start losing hope, the rut reels me back in and gets my heart thumping. Saw a spike early and then I turned around 930 and saw a big boy walking by just out of range. Tried calling him in but he was on a mission. I tried to attach a video but I keep getting an error. Cant wait for Wednesday when I can get back out.

I hunted from the ground today since they stole the treestand where I was sitting. I forgot how much I like sitting in the ground. Just a different feeling.

Well I’m heart broken. At 9:45 this morning I had a beautiful 8 or 9 come in and I whacked him . After backing out for 2 hours i started in on the blood trail. We followed blood for a good 500 or so yards when I cousin says look there he was 30 yards away starring at us . He jumped and took off. He ran up on the next ridge looking back and continued into my field. After checking thru the field blood was pin drop size. The whole blood trail was spotty no heavy blood.here is the trail cam pic just before I shot and my arrow. I thought for sure it was a good hit but hit him low.

Nice looking buck if it is a low shot the blood should be bright red no bubbles. That would most likely be b a survivable shot.

Is that a broken arrow? I can’t make out the pic too clear but 9/10 that’s a shoulder hit. Did you hear a loud crack? Was the arrow still in him when he ran off the first time?

Just had a nice clean 8 pt come in behind me. Probably caught my scent or movement. He stood there for a few minutes, before he ran off and stood at 60-70 yds. He the ran off. Dang!

Spike just did the same thing. Caught my scent at 40 and did a u turn. Wrong wind direction for the route the deer took today.

Yes bright red no bubbles. When I seen him run off during the track the way he took off and leaped I can honestly feel good about him surviving.
