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

Sat till dark on a ridgeline with oak overlooking a swamp and bedding. Nada. My heart skipped a few times at some leaves crunching only to reveal a tree rat.

Hiked back to the parking lot and what was empty at 1 was packed by dark. Hunting pressure is picking up.

I won't say depressing but frustrating season so far. I thought EHD was blown out of proportion but wondering if it had a significant impact on the local herd. Sign, sightings and movement all down over prior years. Still great to be out in the woods.

Giving another shot in the am and then finding different public to start some hail marys on.

Good luck to all out there.

EHD is definitely effecting region 3. I’ve seen a lot of posts on Hudson Valley Forum too

The EHD area of region 3 is very hit, or miss from what I see/hear locally.  Where I work, we have 2 decent sized ponds, where deer are numerous, ZERO deer found on this property.  Literally 5 miles away on the Wallkill River, several have been found.  I know a gentleman who found 9 within a few hr kayak stroll on that river one afternoon.  Just adding this for reference for you for whatever it may be worth.

Appreciate it. That's why I may be changing locale a bit to see if that has any benefit. Can't be any worse is my logic. Good luck out there.

I will tell you I feel it had a huge impact on my deer heard. That being said just spending the time out there get in deeper you will see deer. I feel it’s been picking up for me over the past few weeks

Keeping my string alive ! Zippo deer seen tonight , first time in this stand . I got so despite I hung my two cameras just to see if there’s any deer here . I took them down for the hunting season ,as I prefer to hunt with only my wits and what’s been described as a mediocre, blind squirrel hunting ability ,not electronic 24/7 monitoring . But iz gots to know !

What a loooooong boring sit today until the last 5-10 minutes and then holy crap how exciting. Literally the last minute before legal light expired the 10 pointer I’ve been seeing on cams came out in all his glory pushing around 6-7 does right in front of my tree stand. Everything moving too quick to get a clean shot so he lives another day but what a rush. It went from nothing and dead quiet to loud and crashing around within seconds. I’ve got renewed excitement to get out there every minute I can now.

Hey guys got lucky the other morning,, this guy was chasing does and came in to about 25 yards behind some trees and then turned around and went back into the thick stuff,,, I gave two small grunts and he came right back to smack down town ..

Not a huge buck but my 2 1/2 year goal and it has been a slow season,,, so one in the bag is better than two to talk about ..

Well the weather APP says it’s 60 in Canandaigua, Jimmy Crickets I’ve got to tote the backpack leaf blower in this morning as well . At least I can wax the truck again this afternoon , that’s not a euphemism either .

Filling the thermos then out the door.

“Like a hunter, I was born to track alone
And I've made up my mind
I ain't countin no more tines”

Now I’ve got that song stuck in my head - good luck this morning!
