No movement yet. But Man sitting like this brings back a flood of memories!!! Me & my cousin used to hunt like this. Just go out in the woods & find a place to sit under a tree & wait.

A buddy got a nice one with his PBBA PRO 20 using a 20ga slug! Crazy what you can do with air! Good luck, in for LDPs!

Helicopter is just a distraction and may make the game move. Good luck!

This looks like my king of gun hunting. What kind of range do you have with it and how loud are they?

Iím comfortable out to 50yrds with it. Iím sure in more capable hands itís good for farther but Iím not gonna push it. As in noise itís not real quite but I donít think itís loud either. Maybe like a 22 mag but a different type of noise, not the ear piercing high crack more of a low boom.

Blake are you thinking of some other kind of noise? SBD's can be deadly but not sure they would take down a deer. lol
