LIVE From The Woods 2020 - Let's hear stories and see some pictures!

Warm. Sunny. Swirling wind. I have no reason to believe that I have much of a chance of seeing, much less shooting, a nice buck. BUT, 0% chance of anything good happening if I waste the day doing work around the house. SO, out into the woods I find myself. Feels like I should have a fishing pole in my hands. 
Anyhow, the bucks are chasing so anything could happen.

Yeah, He was a good buck for sure, and oddly enough it was a close to home spot and not even on either of our leases. I don't regret killing him really, I just wish it would've happened during the rut I guess. The woods are just so much more exciting then, and I would've definitely had opportunity at one just as big or bigger this week already. And I didn't mention that I've been off of work the entire season so far, we got furloughed at work in July. I actually just took a job today at a new place and start at the end of the month. So I would've literally had every single day to rut hunt. Oh well, weird year for me. But I am grateful for the buck I got.

Just looked at the pic - he's a stud for sure!

My bump and dump plan turned out to be all bump and no dump. Nothing seen in the PM other than some chipmunks and squirrels.

My bride picked me up in the parking lot and told me she saw a herd of does in the yards on the way to pick me up. The joys of hunting suburbia.

Giving an old rub line a shot tomorrow to see if anyone has woken up yet.

Good luck to all.

Made it for a morning sit in 8N for a couple of hours until it got real windy and it warmed up into the 60's. Got down and scouted a bit and they are not refreshing scrapes that were made last week at all and no new rubs. No deer seen.

Didn't do the afternoon because I just can't bring myself to hunt in the 70's. Put the mowers away, pulled the batteries, and charged them up. They are finally starting to cut the cornfield to the south and can only hope things begin to pick up.

Heading out in 10. Going to hunt a new brush blind I made yesterday after finding a fresh scrape that wasn't there on Tuesday. Jumped 4 deer in the last two days in that spot, so I'm giving it a shot. Wind isn't perfect, so I may end up sitting where I was yesterday morning. Only have a couple hours.

 

Possible bear scat ( a lot of it ) in the area as well, if I arrow a bear I'll be coming here to ask for help getting it out of the woods.:blink:

Packed in for another all day sit on stand but these warm temps arent helping with the deer action. Yesterday the last deer I saw was at 7:15...made for a long sit until quitting time. Was at least entertained by a flock of turkeys for awhile at about 1:00. Good luck all out today.

In about 30 mins ago. Winds light out of NW. Crazy temperature differences. Cold air and fog at the parking lot in the valley. Probably ten degrees warmer and clear on the ridgeline I am on.

Here till about 8 then will scout a little for a PM spot.

Good luck to all.
