Hunted new spot for the second time this morning. Bumped deer coming in. Had hogs around me most of the morning. Didn't see a deer. Had this descent buck walk by my tree yesterday morning following a doe. Will be back at is Sat/Sun before it's all over! Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!

I sat for as long as I could this morning without freezing over. I saw one buck and 2 does; all out of range. Couldn't get a great look at the buck.

I made the mistake of going late doe/spike season the last time I got drawn for GV. Saw the oldest buck I had ever seen. he was broken off on one side but was the most mature deer I had ever seen in the wild. He hung around my stand at 15 to 30 yards for 30 min or more. Will never put myself in that position again, lol.

Looks like I'll be able to get out one last time this Saturday morning. Trying to figure out where to setup.

Murphy's law! It sounds like you are still losing sleep over that hunt and I don't blame you.

I hunted hard but couldn't get it done. Closest I got to a shooter was about 50 yards.
