Sat on a 5 acre property in Honeoye Falls this am . Was in the blind by 6:15 and stayed until 11:15 . Never saw a thing . Neither did my son . 3 years using the X-bow and still haven't gotten a shot with it on a deer . I put it away when I got home and I am getting ready for the Saturday Gun Opener .

I was in my Pond Blind Stand by 6:10 this am . About 8:30 5 doe ran down through the big field . Too much brush in the way for a shot . My 2 sons were in the woods . My oldest son shot a doe around 9:30 . In the afternoon , my son spotted a trespasser and let me know he was wandering in the woods . About an hour later I spotted the guy and called to him . He came up to my stand and I realized it was the next door neighbor . We exchanged pleasantries and he left . I told him that when he came through the thickets that he kicked out a doe it it was hauling butt . I got down at 5pm and headed back to my car . Waited for my sons to get up to where we parked and we chatted for a bit and I left . Did I mention that it was ccccold !

The field to the left in the picture belongs to a neighbor and I don't have permission to shoot out there . Between 3:45 and 4:45 I saw 6 deer in the field . 5 were definitely antler less . Not sure about the 6th one . Around 4:30 my youngest son shot at a doe . Thought he hit her but wasn't going to get down until 5pm . At about 5pm , I packed up my gear and waited by my ATV . Nick didn't spot any blood so I drove the quarter mile to where he was and helped look . Nothing . No blood , no deer . I think he is going back in the am to look some more .

My 2 sons , grandson and I are going to do a morning hunt tomorrow . Depending on the wind I am considering using my Ruger Super Red Hawk 44mag with open sights from one of my bow stands . I had a Leopold 2X scope on the pistol but couldn't get on a deer at close range so I took it off . Maybe I will change my mind about the pistol . Not sure .

What a long day . Two of my sons and a grandson met at the property in Geneseo . I was in my stand by 6:15 . Around 7:25 i heard 3 shots . I waited a few minutes and the called my youngest son who was 1/4 mile away . He said he dropped a doe and took 2 shots at a buck . Later he reported that he had gotten both . Nick was using his Savage 220 slug gun . Suggested he get them loaded at his car and head home . Since my other son , grandson and I hadn't seen anything , we decided to leave . I was disappointed that I didn't get a shot with my 44 mag pistol .

Went to my oldest sons house for dinner . Had a great meal . I ate more marinated backstraps than turkey . All in all , it was a good day .

Nick's deer

Went to Geneseo this afternoon . I set up my Ameristep Caretaker blind and sat . Wasn't seeing anything . Bored .... Legal quitting time was 5:09 pm . I had to pee real bad and closed up the Hub Blind at 4:35 . At 4:45 , I saw a doe coming my way . She was between me and my SIL's house so I couldn't shoot . More than a good thing as I grabbed my rifle by the scope and felt something loose . The scope rail is held on by 3 set screws . Two of them were loose . Can't use the rifle until I re-sight it . I will take my Savage 220 slug gun for tomorrow afternoon .

My youngest son bought a used trailer to haul his ATV . He drove from Honeoye with the trailer to pick up his ATV Sunday . He left the hunting property in Geneseo , got about 1 1/2 miles away and blew a tire . No spare . I told him to drive the ATV back to the property and see if my SIL would bring him back to his car . He drove the trailer back to the property and stashed it . He ordered 2 tires ( 4.80-12 ) and should get them this Friday . While I was there today my oldest son and I were able to free up the lug nuts on the bad tire side . Tomorrow we will try the other tire . I am thankful that my son didn't get half way home and get the flat tire .

Hunted my SIL's property with my oldest son this afternoon . The only deer I saw was 3 that we spooked out of the gully . I heard a shot at 3:30 and my son said 7 or 8 deer came down through the fiels and he shot at a buck . He waited a bit and then shot a doe . Another double . We were able to quit early . Next up will be an afternoon hunt with my youngest son . So far we have gotten 3 bucks and 3 doe off that property . Life is Good !

My youngest son , Nick, and I did an afternoon hunt in Geneseo today . I saw absolutely nothing . Nick saw a fawn around 1:30 . At 4:50 he got down from his stand and saw a doe up the hill . He didn't shoot as it was sky-lined . We packed up and left . The deer were smarter than us as they stayed out of the wind .
