First game animal finally showed up. 5 turkey gobblers and about 30 ducks are now cleaning up all the corn under the feeder.

Just had a 140ish 10 point come in at last light. He fed for 10 minutes at 19 yards. By the time I could tell he was mature, there wasn’t enough light to take a good shot. Gorgeous deer. Around 18-19” wide and tall.

Learned a good lesson anyways: ALWAYS have your binos ready. I forgot to take them out of my pack and had to get them out to tell what I was looking at and it was too late by then.

Yes sir. Just whitetails and pigs. All settled in at feeder 3. Todd said he sat here Tuesday morning and saw 5 good bucks here. Already had either a coon or small pig come in and steal some corn. I fed this area heavily yesterday and there isnít much corn left here so something was eating here most of the night. Excited to check this camera after the hunt this morning.

Feeder 5 had 2 nice shooters last year when I went in January. Usually deer are around all day there but I would sit tight till at least 11 I like to be mobile when I go and cover new areas instead of doing an all day sit there. I don't think they are chasing yet down there but I could be wrong. Also check out the acorn crop I don't know how it is down there this year but that could also slow things down at the feeders.

Haven’t seen a thing since that spike. How long should I sit it out here? And I was wrong on there not being much corn left from yesterday. There is still quite a bit on the ground.

Well if you care about solar lunar tables at all the peak time for today is between 1150am and 250pm with a minor periods between 650am and 820am and again from 615pm to 754pm.

If your seat is comfortable then I'd stay and be comfortable.
