Did you ever get your tree hammock seat.  Oddly enough, mine came unhooked from the tree last night, landing me on my butt.  My head was pounding for a while after that as the shock must have transmitted up the spine.  
 

I am not sure if I had it latched tight prior but I noted one of the teeth broken on the little plastic latch after.  This morning, I piled up leaves under it to break my fall if it let go again.  That worked out well because I was able to silently swivel for a good shot angle on this doe, thanks to the cleared leaves.  The seat held my 210 pounds this morning.

Well, this is odd.  Been sitting in my stand for about 10 min when out of the corner of my eye, I see something fall past me by only a foot or so and heard it hit the ground. 

There's a small gray squirrel laying at the bottom of the tree. It's wobbling like a baby trying to walk.  Do squirrel have young throughout the summer into fall?

Had this one at a buddies job site. We think they came with the lumber that was dropped off. Caught him in my hat after he climbed up the building and lost balance. Almost tame I fed it my my leftover apple core.

Went full "THP" on this dude around 6:15......my son made the call and decided I needed to abort the treestand and go after him in the grapes. He ziged..... I Zaged and he lives to see another day. His buddy Mr. 4pt. Stuck around forever but he wasn't what we were after.

Exciting evening hunt... Edge of a winter rye field at the other corner where I saw the buck Friday night and out come 3 doe, the one was a big girl too.  The best the would do was 70 yards... But a really cool experience.  I backed out and the never knew I was there.  I'll set up closer next time.

Jumped down when too dark under tree canopy. 10 in the field as I walked down logging trail. One broke out from the smaller group and walked right towards me. Big’ish doe came to 7-8 yards broadside on trail. A gift but don’t want to shoot anything here but him. Still got the blood going.

Gonna be a long night. Sent one on  big doe about 6:15.  Full pass thru.  Checked arrow and it looks more liver/gut than I like to see.  Went home to let the dog out.  Gonna go back and take a little look and go from there....hoping it down .  Those grim reapers do a job. If not gonna be a longer night of hoping no coyotes.

Do you think your dog could help, even on a leash?  A gut hit gives off a lot of scent and dogs have great noses.   I said a prayer that you will find her.

Great night saw this guy at 80 yards away in the woods, I was along the woods edge and a bean field he came out mid woods at 6:00 and stood in one spot for a timed 15 minutes , then was just gone . I watched him through my binoculars and he was watching me … I was totally silhouetted against the bright field . Then two big doe came out into the beans, and walking out there was another feeding in a cut corn field , how  she didn’t hear  me stepping on every stick and tripping as I reached the end of the lane is a mystery.

I passed this buck two years ago ( rifle) at 60 yards as he was on mean Jeans land and she asked I don’t kill deer on her side . One pic is 2019 another this summer .

I had to go back to the blind this am after quartering up my buck as I left some things in there in my excitement. Shoulda brought a damn rifle. Coyote was 50 yards from gut pile, which didn't make sense at first till I saw the two Bald eagles chewing on it! that was cool. I'm not sure ill get out till Friday back in PA with my son for youth hunt.

I hate typing this but youre all my hunting buddies. I wounded a doe today. Tracked very little blood to @240 yards or so and then just lost it. Started taking trails, I had a friend with me, and also looking for a body in between trails. No luck. No beds. I rarely see my arrow fly but it was a wide open 20 yard shot and I blew it. Id love to say I think she will make it but I truly have no idea. I sent pics to several great hunters and all said the blood looked like liver but there was very little. I gave her four hours
