Oct 1 - Opening day . I spent a total of 9 hours in my Tri-Pod stand on my oldest son's property in Honeoye Falls . Didn't see a thing excepy for a farmer's cat patrolling the property . At the end of a long day my son told me that they hadn't been seeing many deer out back in the past few weeks . What the heck ! I could have choked him . Anyway , I got opening day out of my system .

Oct 3 - My oldest son and I met at my SIL's property in Geneseo . I took my ATV and we hunted about 700 yards from each other . I saw absolutely nothing all morning . Matt had 3 small deer in front of his Truck . They were about 25 yards from his stand . He thought about shooting but backed off . He hunts with a recurve bow . He also saw a  doe later in the am . Took a break at 11 and went back to the stands at 1 pm . I moved to a different stand . The farmer started combining the soy beans in the field next door . Around 4 , Matt did a stalk hunt and I stayed put . Around 4:30 I saw a spike buck about 400 yards away in the gully lot and after a few minutes , it disappeared . The farmer finished the neighbor's field and came over to my SIL's field so we left around 5:30 . So far , so bad !

    I saw a nice Buck on my morning Hike today on the closed down + overgrown 1/2 mile Horsetrack in Orange County.

    If CrossBow opened with early Archery, I would be out there trying to get Deer #1.

The front end of my son's truck was 20 yards from his tree stand . The 3 deer in the picture were about 5 yards ahead of the truck . He said they were small and probably fawns . There is a trail through the hedge row at the end of my SIL's horse manure dump . Trucks are like deer magnets .

Oct 9 -- Another exciting day in the Great Outdoors . I was in my stand in the thickets by 6:30 . Sat back and relaxed . Legal shooting time was 7:18 . Didn't see a thing . It was so quiet .... even the BlueJays weren't making any noise . Talked to my son who was in a stand in another thick area near the gulley lot . All he saw was a lone doe about 60 yards out in the field . We quit around 10:30 as it was getting to warm to hunt . Since I was in Geneseo , I drove to my sister's house and visited so the day wasn't a total waste !

I normally don't believe in hunting Sundays . I hold it sacred . That's time to watch the Bills Football . Since they are rescheduled to play Tuesday night I think I will go out tomorrow afternoon and try my luck at my friend's property in Walworth . Looks like it is going to be cooler Sunday afternoon .

Sat in one of my stands at my friend's swamp woods in Walworth from 2:30 to 6:30 . Didn't see any deer . Once the sun started going down , it got dark in the woods but still light over the dry swamp . It was dark driving on the way home and about 1/4 mile from Lincoln road and Plank road there was a doe standing about 5 yards off the highway . Don't they know that they are supposed to be in the woods !

Going to give Geneseo another try tomorrow . I plan to use my stand near a creek that runs out of a gully . I will have to use my back-up bow as I kinda screwed up my regular Ben Pearson bow . My back-up is a 70# Parker bow . 

I felt the bottom wheel on the Ben Pearson TX4 and felt a sharp edge . I must have hit something with it . The wheel is aluminum and I can see where it dented over onto the cable a little bit . I could probably shoot the bow but think the dented spot could fray the cable . The only way to fix it would be to loosen the limbs , press the limbs to put slack in the cable and make the fix . I think I am better off using the backup bow . I put 30 shots through my back-up 70# Parker Phoenix EZ Draw and hope I am all set to go in the am .

Oct 17 --- No shot today but it still was an interesting day . I was in my Geneseo stand by a creek by 6:30 this morning . It was cccccold . Saw a doe and fawn at 7:23 and they stayed on the other side of the brush and left the area . At 10:30 , I had enough and walked up to my SILs barn . Talked to her for a few minutes and left to visit my older sister on Reservoir road . I slowed down as I approached the 4 way stop on Reservoir & Lakeville Groveland roads . Some IDIOT in a semi blew right through the intersection . Went back to my SILs property and tried to take a nap . Not much luck . Got in my stand over looking the previous bean field where the farmer had planted winter wheat . At 2:30 I saw movement and got out my cheap binos . It was a fox crossing the field about 350 yards away . Then nothing for hours . Around 5:50 , I saw movement way down in the neighbor's field . Two deer and they disappeared . Then 3 came out of the laneway 200 yards away and crossed the field . They must have gotten the notice on Social Distancing as they stayed about 50 yards apart . A couple minutes later 4 more came out and crossed the field and then 2 more . Nothing with antlers and all over 200 yards away . So in a 25 minute span , I saw 11 deer . So , it wasn't all that bad of a day .

Went to my friend's property in Walworth . Was in my ladder stand by 6:40 . Around 7:15 there was a slight sprinkle . Around 8 , it picked up and stayed steady . I was pretty much soaked and gave up at 9:45 . My boonie had felt like it weighed 10 pounds . I took it off a nd put on my cap . Never saw any deer and had great visability . Took off my gear at the car and realized my boonie hat was missing . Backtracked but never found it . Went through all my gear with no luck . Gotta dry out the hunting clothes . Saturday , I will go to Geneseo again .

I have Lost plenty of Turkey Calls in the woods through the years. I even lost a Camo Daypack that was Loaded with Stuff.

   Never did find that Daypack..

Went to Geneseo to give it a try . It was misty early in the am . Was in my stand by 6:40 . Cold and breezy . Never saw a thing all day . My son , Nick , was in a stand a couple hundred yards from me in a woodsy area with cat tails . He had a spike go by him at 15 yards and never drew on it . Waiting for the Big Guy . Anyway , around noon , Nick went to the woods and sat . I had gotten down and did a little stalk just to warm up . Got back in the stand and sat some more . Nick called me around 3:30 and said he ached all over so we packed it up and left .

The high light of the day was meeting Culvercreek Hunt Club . I stopped by to purchase a winning lottery ticket . :rolleyes:

It sucks to be me . Went to Geneseo . Trimmed a couple of spots for potential blinds . Went back to my car and put on my camo gear and headed for a stand in the willow tree near the pond . Sat from 3 - 6 pm . Saw a doe and later a buck at a distance . No shot . It was cold and I was glad when the day ended .

Looking at the morning forecast for Geneseo . It's forecasted to be 27 degrees at 7am . Dayum , that's gun hunting weather . I will hunt the am but want to be home by 4pm for the rug rats on Halloween .
