My second sit in this stand. Rubs, scat and a scrape that seems to be freshened every time I’m here but I have yet to see a deer including while scouting and hanging my stand. I may leave this spot alone until November.

Sit was good this morning had a huge doe with fat rolls come in and she needed to take a right about 5 yards and would of been a 18 ish yard shot.  However she took the left and got my scent and she instantly showed she's played this game before.  Caught my scent and started looking in the trees.  She ended up calming down and walking off.  Then had a Tom and a bunch of hens come in and feed about 60 yards out for an hour.

Yesterday, almost nine hours in two stands, on two properties with no deer seen. Did meet up with upstate redneck for coffee in between hunts! Always a pleasure Paul!

Got plenty of deer sign. Rubs and scrapes popping up all over. I need to pace myself now. Very tired after yesterday. Took the morning off. Will go to the other side of the farm property, along the edge of the big swamp this afternoon. Looking to get some blood on this Obsession!

Mlammethirt , I’m in 100% agreement with .
 

For ME once the bachelor groups break up , the crops get cut, the fields turned over or covered in manure,  in mid Oct , the brakes come on . I’ll be out very little till the end of the month , a few of my fiends haven’t even gone yet .

I skipped this morning and it seems it was a slow one in the woods. I got a fence finished and am ready to go now! I am eager to get a deer on the ground.

I to took the morning off l had some projects to finish up around the house. I'm now on my private land in 6g doing some serious tree surfing. I thought the winds were supposed to lessen later in the day but they are still pretty strong. Good luck to everyone out.5cb666f36b6bddebf571c03c89b5192b.jpg

I probably was a bit too excited to start the season. I took the afternoon off to finished the enclosed blind now I’m at a Birthday party. I plan on taking it easy the next 2 weekends I just spent 5 weekends in a row down at camp and need a break and my own bed at night.

Got a stand I neglected on the home prop cleared out better and set a mock scrape. It’s a close after work sneak in sit. I was gonna pop up a new ladder stand but ran outa time.

I’m now up in my island stand behind the corn. Which is now cut. I hope 65009 shots by pheasant and duck hunters the last 2 days don’t have the deer in a bunker!

There’s hardly a soul here now though. Good time to pop a slob!!

Watched half of the giants game and then hit public in 3g. 60 degrees and swirling winds. On the ground in a blow down off some trails between bedding and oak. Have only seen does with reeeeally young fawns to date. Hope something worth it is using these trails through thick cover. Good luck to all out there.

I've been on stand since 1. Saw a hawk, 2 small does and a bunch of squirrels. Not sure what made the 2 deer run. Pretty sure neither saw me or smelled me. Still that's more than I saw yesterday.

Similar scene here on the other side of Ft Drum in wmu 6C.  I probably should have let the hammer fall on the big doe that I saw this morning.  At least the two fawns that were with her will have their momma for a bit longer. 

The wind is still blowing 15-20 mph from the south.  I am sticking close, for the last hour, so I won't be too late for the grilled pork chops my mother in law is making for supper.

I am up here thru opening weekend of gun season. It looks like the rain gear will get a workout, the rest of the week, looking at the forecast.  I will try to remember to cover my muzzle with electric tape tomorrow.  I might even use my crossbow instead.  That looks like the rainiest day of the week.

Good weekend! Had a nice 8 pt cross the road as I was pulling out of my driveway Friday night he was in no hurry and could care less about anything. Saturday I woke up late and decided to cut down a tree and cleanup deadfall around the cabin. Seems like I could do this all day everyday! Went on a scouting trip Saturday late morning and caught movement and another nice 8 point walking around without a care in the world. Saturday night I had what i think was another 8 come in right before dark but wouldn’t come close. Finally after sitting there as he just munched on some leaves till about 715 I threw a stick to spook him . Seen lots of does and boy there are some tiny fawns around my way!

Ugh so close!! He got as close as about 30yrds, needed about 5 more. Got some good video with my phone. Good news is, he frequently visits this plot day and night!
