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

Went looking for some bushy tails and pulling trail cams for the first time in a long time Saturday. A little too much snow and wind for squirrels, but a beautiful day and enjoyed the few hours of quite hiking... despite the trespasser tracks who beat me in by a few hours. no pics of his head but from chest below walking around with a shotgun...

Went back sunday to cut a trail to a future stand location. Really love onX for this. I track all my walking and walk deer runs and I can then go home and take a high level look on the computer. Go back to the woods and then look for a tree. Combo of woodsmanship and technology to work smarter and not harder.

Of course I brought my 2 oldest and the younger slipped on thin swamp/puddle ice and dunked a whole leg and boot cutting my scouting short. Felt bad as I got more annoyed than I should have, and caught myself acting like my father when afterall he's a kid. Just sucks to drive over and hike in and then lose some valuable time.

Positive note, all 3 shooter/mounter bucks made it through and there are some nice 8's that were probably 2.5 that made it.

We have all been there....on the positive side you realized what you did wrong and probably won't do it anymore. My boys are 4 and 6 and have dunked in a few ditches and creeks over the years. I yell...they laugh at me and we move on! Lol.

Was a beautiful night, saw a few rabbit eyes glowing but that was it. Found that my blind that made it all fall and winter blew away, so I sat there in the chair a lot more exposed than I would have like, still no return vocals so nots sure it mattered. Went back for a hike and prep work today and found it about 800 yards away hung up in a hedgerow, looks to be undamaged too.

yeah sometimes I sit for a while, but truth is, they're active as hell gathering nuts in the fall. In the winter, especially in the snow there's just no reason for them to be out. They're just eating out of their stash.
