Game cam caught him right before his day was ruined. We don't see many spikes on my lease. When I do, I try to take them out!

Who's out in the rain this morning? I got busted walking into my woods when a deer blew at me. I'm afraid my hunt ended before it started. Hopefully something will come by. I'm hunting over an active scrape. Looks like the scrape is underwater now though

Had a previous engagement today, skipped out on hunting. 2 less pigs after last nights hunt tho, felt good to kill something again

I'll be over in the morning to hunt, with the cooler temps back around for a few days...I found a handful of fresh rubs, some good sized trees ripped to shreds. Gonna see if he's feeling his oats and cruising thru tomorrow. The next few weeks should be prime time

Finally made it to deer camp! Checked my bow to make sure it was on after getting new strings and it was shooting to the right. Spent this afternoon re-zeroing. Oh well, maybe it will bring me luck in the morning.
