Zero deer seen, seven hours in the stand today in 8N.  Judging by the lack of shots opening weekend and reports from friends, the deer just haven’t been very active.  Whatever the reason, I hope it picks up in the upcoming days.

Slow day in the woods in 8H. To make it even more painful, as soon as I got to my spot I received these cell cam pics from a property I hunted yesterday. Gotta see what the wind does tomorrow but will most likely try to make a move on him as he was trailing a doe and hopefully is still around

45 yard shot went 30.  Super happy with him. His body looked huge when he was standing there but he only weighed 120 pounds. I had to check 2 different scales.

Congratulations Matt! Way to go buddy. Beautiful buck.

First time hunter this season. Got a small doe on opening day, perfect shot through the heart at about 50-60 yards. One on top is mine, bottom is a buddies. Will definitely never shoot that small ever again but what an amazing weekend it was. Not much movement at camp though. Will be heading out again soon to hopefully tag out. 20201121_075602.thumb.jpg.ef466e4ae481044e8926bfa21130ab39.jpgIMG_2406.thumb.jpg.0154e0884e61e2aa426690c6649d9a0f.jpg

Not live from the woods, but got this Allegany county 7 1/2 point on Sunday. Let him get to the top of the mountain before I shot, but he rolled down anyway. MAJOR PIA getting him out, I am getting too old for this....:rofl:

Congratulations!

Great shooting, great eating and you"ll never forget that day as long as you live!

Shoot what makes you happy, and never regret pulling the trigger.

For those that give a hoot about score. I had 2 people green score my buck. Numbers put into the Boone and Crockett online calculator.

Grossed 155 2/8

Netted 143 7/8

Will have him scored officially after the 60 day drying period.

So happy and thankful to have him. Just got home from my taxidermist. Ill get to see him again in 6-7months.

I'm up and moving, going to slow hunt into one of my hillside stands after daybreak.  I'm told there's a dusting and it's butt cold.  Good luck to everyone going out!

Rain is finally stopping here in 8F, at least it will be a nice quiet walk in. Colder weather today should have them up. Good luck to all going out.

Good luck out there to all. Three doc visits via phone today starting at 7:15 so no hunt this morning. Depends how ticked off I am at those calls if I head out later in the day.

Only have time for a short sit this morning then I'll be pulling dad duty and be living vicariously through the rest of you. Let's hope this colder weather gets them up and moving.

Not sure why the judgement over a simple statement. He/we’re grateful for the gift every time it happens, especially in these uncertain times. Neither my dad or I are rack hunters. We’re out there for the enjoyment and to provide for our family. He was upset that he misidentified the deer, not that he could have seen buttons at that distance, had nothing to do doe/buck.

I don’t think mowin was judging you at all, but more wondering why hunters in general feel bad about taking a Button versus a same size/age doe. If anything he was saying, “why feel bad (if you were since you presented some “apology” that it’s a button) about taking a button?
Shoot what you like (legally) and like what you shoot!
