Wanted to say thanks for all the supportive words and texts. Always appreciate my bow hunting family.

The last few days of shooting have been pretty productive and therapeutic. Back to being relaxed. Ready for the next trip to get here and back out into the woods.

Good luck. I'm looking for the hunting to get good once the winds lays a bit. I went out this morning and saw one buck wandering around looking for does to chase but all the does were bedded down. I watched him for about an hour off and on and he was sure confused. It was fun to watch but I felt sorry for him at the same time. I will hunt this evening and tomorrow evening but I really don't expect much this evening with the wind blowing 25 mph.

I was just about to say I hope the wind isn't blowing there as bad as it is here. Should lay some by morning.

The feeder not throwing definitely makes it feel 10 degrees colder than it probably is.

So far I have had 2 visitors this morning. A really nice shooter buck that came in right at legal light, but didn't stay long or give me a shot... and a jack rabbit that gave me a shot for several minutes but got a pass because there are deer moving.

Had another buck come by. Milled around on my hand corn. Just as he gave me a shot... I go to draw back and he moves and walks off slowly.

Hey Jerry... just wanted to say thanks for posting this. It was a long day and the AM station kept going in and out. I was falling asleep around the 6th and when we got to the stretch I tapped out and turned off the radio and turned off the lights. About 2 am I check my phone for time and the first thing I see is this notification on my lock screen. I was releived as hell and was able to fall back asleep pretty quick.

Heard alot of commotion inside the treeline in front of me... chasing or fighting... but the distinct sound of antlers scraping. Nothing emerged though and wind is still good.

They're moving good this morning in Cherokee county. Seen 4 so far, which doubles the amount I've seen all season. Good luck!

So... I am making a big loop around an area that typically has alot of good still hunting action. I get to the top of the loop and I have seen nada. All of a sudden, I need to go. So I make my way back towards camp with the wind at my back. Walk by a feeder whos corn hadn't been touched. Walk further and as I round a bend... 2 deer are chasing right towards me. The chaser sees me and freezes as I slide to the side and nock an arrow. The lead deee looks is on a path to cross by me on a parallel trail.... but stops short and turns and walks back. No stomping, no snort, nothing... but abother close encounter.

I am back in the tripod again from last night. The handcorn and feeder corn were gone so threw more and did a test throw. Freshened up the wick and I will wait it out here for a while.

Back out in the same spot that I sat at this morning. The wind won't be right tomorrow morning and I am hoping to get a better look at that first buck.
