I'm on my way down, running a little late but should be on stand by 6:30. 35 degrees now, I'm super excited about this cold front. The last time I hunted the stand was the 18th when I shot my Doe, it's been baited twice since but not hunted. , the 18th was also a day after a less dramatic cold front had settled in and I saw a ton of movement, hoping for the same today.

Lot was full here. But I'm separated from the crowd I think. 50lbs of corn I put out on Wednesday is all but gone. Turkeys cleaning it up.

Things appear to have gone from bad to worse on cam...not sure if they are starting to move off hitting the corn so often and roaming their territory more or if I'm just in the wrong spot. Do have a new buck on cam every day in daylight, of course he's a 2.5yo 6point...

Was it one of those "shoot it and leave it lay" limbs? Kinda like some folks do with big hogs?
