Damn, they are calling for almost an inch of rain on opening day of ML in the town up north where I am headed tomorrow.  I sure hope I find my pop up blind in my in-laws attic when I get up there.  I should have a couple hours of legal hunting time tomorrow afternoon.

 I will take a short walk then, with my crossbow, and get that blind set up.  I should be able to keep my powder dry in that blind on Saturday.  
 

The rest of the week looks pretty good up there.  Under a tenth of an inch of rain is predicted for Sunday, and none for Monday.

Took the last few days of hunting, made my nephew some venison cheese sausages and jerky along with his Euro mount. Made him a nice wood plaque, not gotta get a nice engraving done for it and peroxide it. Might sit in the morning for a bit.

Thanks for the the reminder.  I will be sure to slip that on before the 1/4 mile walk to the pop up blind Saturday morning.

Well I think it's about time I put away the fishing poles and start getting back in the woods and on the forum!

I've been patiently waiting for cooler temps and looks like a beautiful cold front coming in.... nice and rainy on the front end means a lot of pent up activity on the back end once it clears out. I'll be out Saturday pulling cards and looking for the hottest scrapes I can find to sit on Sunday and Monday. My cell cams started lighting up the last two nights with scrape activity so decent chance the weather gets the bucks up during day light to freshen them up. I know no one likes to get wet but scouting in the rain is honestly one of the best moves this time of year - the deer don't hear you and your presence washes away.

Good rain gear was the first thing I packed for hunting next week up north.  Maybe I will put on my new chest waders, goretex jacket, electric tape over the muzzle of my stainless steel inline, and still hunt in the morning Saturday.   
 

Back to the house for some hot soup with the inlaws, then out to the pop up blind until 1/2 hour past sunset.  Sounds like a good plan for this meathunter.

Wanted to check cams today anyways, so I thought I’d sit in the stand for a couple of hours. As I was pulling in, I received a cell cam pic of the piebald buck about 400 yards away near another stand. Would be cool to actually lay eyes on him. Man is it ever warm!!

It’s official, since sept 27th I have golfed more times than I’ve hunted. I’ve killed plenty of deer in warm weather but I simply don’t enjoy it. After today I think the clubs are going away by the looks of the long term.
