Been back home for a day to check on the homestead and grab the rifles. Headed back north in am until…

Found a bunch of sign, a lot more than I would have thought usually it’s behind up there especially with the weather. Looks like some cold frosty mornings coming should be a great start to gun season.

Good luck…my feeling is that full moons greatly reduce the am activity as many deer are taking advantage of “brighter” nights and stay up feeding. Midday and evenings (as Biz so eloquently remembered my doe in the PM before the full moon phase) are show great activity.

I agree with this to a degree, but I believe weather Trumps everything with deer hunting. I may be wrong, i am much of the time. tonight in Chautauqua county there will be t-storms and clouds all night. No lazy, brightly lit fields for deer to relax and feed in. I’m betting on cold temps and clearing skies to bring them out of cover to feed in The AM. Then again, I honestly don’t care if I sit for 4 hours and look at trees, I’m just ready for some tree-time and a break from work. It has been a VERY busy year.

Cams were pretty dead last night. Just 2 does and 3 small bucks... from 10 cams. Haven't had any shooters on cam for the past 4 nights now.

… and let me guess…. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday cameras were blowing up?   It amazes me sometime how much variation there is….  First 3 days of this week I was averaging 25 pics a day on one of my cameras..   now I have not got a single deer pic since 8:30 Wednesday evening..

Their gonna be on their feet this am, big temp drop.

I hope you are correct.  The wind is right (nw) for me this morning to hit the spot where I had a 15 yard encounter with an Adirondack giant on opening day of rifle last year.  I am going to try and catch him a day early with my ML this morning.  Departure time is 30 minutes before sunrise and/or, when the rain stops.

The weather conditions (wind and rain) are nearly the same as last year but it is 20 degrees cooler so I think my chances are ok.

My cameras have been dead the last 2 nights. I did however have a 2 yr old and a 3 yr old both on camera yesterday after sun up. I still have yet to get one of the slammer bucks that used my place a lot last season on my cams that I know are still around because my hunting buddy a mile away got pics of them this summer.

Pretty much! From the 13th-18th, my cams were blowing up, with deer activity, but specifically several big mature bucks moving (all at night). The 3 days after, were DEAD, practically zero deer activity. Last night, was a little better, but not much. I haven't had a big buck on cam since the 18th. Can't even say with the full moon, deer are up and feeding at mid-day, because the cams aren't showing squat for activity. Pretty typical for what I see while hunting the first couple days before and after a full moon. I was hoping the cloud cover and 20 degree temp drop would over-ride the effects of the full moon, but it certainly doesn't look like it...

Rain stopped at my planned departure time but has started again right before sunrise.  My umbrella is up with my orange hat on top and I am in position and ready.   The wind is perfect nw at about 10 mph.

phone in pocket till buck on ground and squirrels don’t break twigs (lessons from one year minus a day ago).
