Sometimes I wish time travel was possible. I never would have asked that one crazy girl out freshman year in college and my car wouldn't have gotten keyed. I would have told myself I didn't need that last shot of jaeger. I would have avoided Tijuana altogether. And I would have told myself at 730 am that all the action for the day was done and you can go home back to bed.

In oh dark thirty this am over sign I found yesterday. Pushed one on the walk in. Movement in the brush in the dark. Had a few does as legal approached slowly meandering. Saw a body making its way towards me in the cover. Either it caught my scent (doubtful given wind) or the coyote that unbeknownst to me was approaching spooked it and it bounded off. Was either a big doe or a buck, never saw its head. And that was it. Yote was beautiful.

Trying again tomorrow before rain comes through. Congrats to all that connected and good luck to those still chasing.

My son had this buck 50 yards last night and could not get a shot,,, tonight he went to the field stand and the same buck came out the corner and limped across the field and laid down 100 yards in front of him,, he texted me as he didn't know what to do or of he should get down,, I walked out to the field and he got up and limped his way across the field he is definitely hurt..

I got within 70 yards from him and he was in no hurry to leave,, not sure if someone made a bad shot on him or he was hit by a car or in a fight with another buck,, hope my son gets a crack at him and he is not mortally wounded..

PS camera is a hour off haven't reset the time

A.M hunt produced only one mosquito spotted. My neighbor had an Amish build off at his house today but once they stopped at 4 P.M the woods came alive. Had a huge doe that would’ve gotten a bolt sent her way if she came in another 10 yards come in with one unknown. Then as I was climbing down the stand I catch movement and it’s a giant buck about 75 yards out. Now I’m stuck i don’t want to blow this stand up. So I climb down the last couple rungs and back out so he can’t tell what I was (hopefully). Cams are still showing night time movement with only a few day time movers. Next Saturday for the gun opener is my only time I’ll be able to get out next. Congratulations to you that connected today.

About 15 Amish guys building an addition on his barn. Started at 8 am. Have you ever heard or seen 10 Amish buggies All parading down a dirt road ? Then non stop hammering and power tools till 4.

 Woke up late ... up showered  fixed a coffee to go . Opened the door to a 5 to 10mph south east wind .  That really sucks . I don't have  a good stand for that wind . Going to give it an hour and if it doesn't change I'm going to work in the garage today and wash hunting clothes.

Fixed a coolant leak  yesterday in the truck . I hope it's fixed . Had it in the garage 3 times in last year  pressure tested 3 times and they could not find it. Doing breaks on all 4 corners  today . Had 4 tires done Friday. Truck just turned 100k. All set for gun  season and ice fishing.

Just getting ready to head in to where I  saw all the small bucks yesterday. Hopefully one of their daddies will show up this morning? 24 degrees and calm now. Cranked my hunting theme song November Rain on the way up this morning. That has worked before! grampy is going in HOT !

I sat all day yesterday. I had a non shooter 8pt come by first thing, then never saw another deer.  Perfect weather, but no deer cruising or chasing. I almost had a shot at a coyote, but he saw my silhouette in the tree and slowly walked away, looking over his shoulder often.

Not looking real good this year in the Letchworth area. Have a couple keepers on the farm outside the park but in the park things are definitely off.

Up and in, cold still morning, heavy coat is with me but hanging off my sticks may have to put it on but trying not to.as long as the wind stays away I should be fine.. I’m at my deepest stand by far. Great spot but I will say getting one out of here would be an experience to say the least

Hey, i follow and read every post and have for 3 years now, only posted a few time. Yesterday was one of my best all time bow days ever. Got nin stand a 5AM and didnt see anything most the day. A lone doe at 8:30 AM, then a lone 4 PT at 2:30 PM. At 4PM i was thinking as you often do, am i going to go another all day sit this time of year and really only see what i noted above? I was in one of my sitting stretches at 4PM and look behind me, 8 does coming at me single file. Well they literally stayed under me 15 minutes and finally walked off back the way they came. I contemplated after that as it had been a long day, then my common sense kicked in and i said to myself, you idiot, still till legal time. I stand up, get my crossbow in hand, catch movement behind me sand look over my shoulder and this guy comes right down the lane the does were on. What a day, what a feeling!

In since 545. Beautiful morning. So far saw 6 deer. 2 doe, 4 bucks. All either too small or out of range. Grunted to a nice 8, but all he did was stop and look. Very exciting!
