I don’t think Swoop will get a 3rd pass. We have both let him walk.

Bout to head in.
30 deg with a North wind.
It's snowing hard. Expecting 1-3". Probably gonna pile up in a ground blind till it stops then relocate.
I'll update as I can.

Settled in the ground blind.

Already an inch of snow on the ground. We could here the very distinctive sound of snow crunch as we walked in.
It's breaking daylight and the woods are white!
We're gonna sit here till it slacks off and head to our sets.

We are making a move.
Snow has passed. Deer movement has shut down.
We had a few young bucks cruise by the ground blind and that was it.
Clark is headed to the ladder stand where High & Tight has made an appearance in daylight the last 2 days.
I'm back I'm my climber where I saw Trashy 8 yesterday but have moved to a different tree on a creek line where I watched him cross a drainage area. My wind is perfect so hopefully he'll make the same route today.
North wind is kicking and wind chill is in the teens.

Snowing again!!!
You had 1 job weatherman!

Regardless...
Deer are on there feet. Just saw a buck chasing a doe in the timber. Couldn't tell how big.
Clark has a 3 pnt feeding on acorns.

Mid day movement has been great this week.

I hunted 40 miles east of Wichita with an outfitter in 2013 and 2015. We hunted the second week of November both years. Some of the funnest hunting I’ve ever done.

Clark has on incenerator bibs and I have on stratus pants. We both are wearing fanatic jackets.
IMO Sitka is the best cold gear made.

Had one of the best bow hunts I've very had, minus killing a shooter.
I honestly lost count of the deer I saw this evening.
At one time I had 10 deer under me. Only thing missing was the Trashy 8.

Clark had another great hunt. A hot doe brought Swoop in to 40 yards from the creek bottom but he didn't have a shot.

I'm sad to say that today was his last hunt. He will be heading home in the morning. I'll be here till Thursday.

Evening hunts are definitely hot right now.

I'll be back at it tomorrow all day again.

Hang in there with me. It ain't over yet.

Im in a tree.
Made a slight change up this morning and hit some public land.
Morning hunts have been slow on our property and I needed a change of scenery.
I'm in the same tree I had the big 10 come under me at dark when I was here in October.

I'm sitting in a funnel with a creek behind me and a big cut Milo field to my South.

I like this spot.

Just had a big shooter cross the Milo field @ 200 yards.
He didn't pay any mind to rattling or grunting.
Shortly after he crossed a doe crossed in the same spot.
It's a beautiful morning. Sun is starting to come over the tree tops.
I'm gonna sit here till 10:00 and head to our property for the rest of the day.
Cell cams showed Swoop and High & Tight working scrapes last night. Hope to catch one of them slipping.

Made the move to our property.

Wasn't 200 yards from the truck and walked upon a nice buck milling around in the timber. Watched him make a scrape and feed on acorns. He's a new buck that I didn't recognize.
After he went out of sight, I went back to the South of the property and I'm set up in the same lock on that Clark had Swoop & High & Tight at 2 days ago.
Movement has been steady all day here as per cell cams. I'm hoping this evening is a good as yesterday was.
