Surprisingly very dry. I wasn't expecting to get to my parking spot but only had one or 2 puddles in the road.

Just climbed into the stand. Saw 12 deer standing in a nearby field feeding, including a small buck. Jumped one close to the stand walking in. Be on your toes. I'll be giving it he'll this week and next week unless I kill something besides time. Good luck.

Now that I have meat in the freezer, I'm using the next couple days to try and get a buck. I've got a couple shooters that showed back up in the last week or two. Anybody else going to be out there from tomorrow through Saturday? If so, give me a shout.

15 degrees when I parked the truck at 530 this morning. Already seen a couple of does and a basket 6 or this morning.

It's chilly but I'm dressed for it. Just now starting to get chilled at all, but isn't bad. Luckily, no wind.

Hunted this morning, didn't see anything. I think tomorrow is going to be my last sit. Between work and hunting, I'm worn out.

Been a Good morning so far for my last sit. Saw 2 die and 4 bucks. But what's ridiculous is the the 4 bucks walked by about 60 yards from me to a corner if tall grass and saplings and bedded down. One of them I'm pretty sure is over 13" wide. Oh, and did I mention, they are DOWNWIND of me without a care in the world? Crazy.

No luck. They didnt spook or anything but got up a walked off to the right. Not sure, but I'm thinking the sudden natural gas leak in the vicinity may have pushed them to get up and move. Lol

That's it for me this season. Pulled my stand and camera. It's been fun, frustrating and exciting all at the same time. Saw a lot of deer, mostly bucks believe it or not, hit a decent buck at the end of October, saw another shooter the same day, and killed a small doe that will eat good. I'll be back next year.

Note: I talked to the neighboring landowner this morning for a while. I showed him a picture of the buck that I hit and he told me he saw him a few weeks ago on his property. He had a limp but was chasing a doe when he saw him. Good news that he should be fine and hopefully I'll get a shot at him next year.

Going to do a lot of spring scouting for me a deeper less traveled spot for next season. This is only my second season for deer hunting myself. So I am learning every time I go out. good luck next season Y'all.

Havnt had a chance yet. Prob try during the week. Went scouting last week and found a buck bed. Hopefully pressure doesnít push the buck elsewhere before I can at least get a hunt in.

It was crowded out there where I was. Never seen it that crowded and I’ve been been hunting there since 1993.
