The first year I hunted Georgetown was 1992. I've hunted every season since them except for 4 or 5. Its been quite a while and alot has changed. Back in the beginning you didnt have to apply or qualify...just show up and fill out a permit at one of the trailheads and go in and hunt. Not many hunters back then either.

A lot of movement this morning, saw 6 total.

Then the smallest one messed up and got into range. I thought about waiting for one of the bigger does, but I've had to watch shooter bucks taunt me since I had no doe kill, so she got dropped.

Had 5 come in tonight. 2 mature does and 3 fawns. Never got a shot on the bigger 2 so I let them walk

I am trying to get out this evening and plan on tomorrow morning as well if the roads are not too bad. Still trying to get that elusive doe. Really Tired of having to pass up legal bucks. Seems like the best times to see deer on my camera in the daytime these days is when the conditions are coldest and nastiest. Brrrr..next year I have hunt more often if necessary to get my deer in October. I will take sweating in a stand over sitting in a stand in freezing rain any day.....

Chrisgunguy - last I heard you still have to get a for our spike before a legal buck. Been my bane this year. Had bucks, but no shootable doe in range when I was out. Still expecting results any day though, maybe even tomorrow :-)

If I can get there on the roads in the am, I will be out also stringstalker84. Expect the cold will have them moving. hope so. Dressing warm for sure. At least you won't have to ice 'em down after you clean one as cold as it is going to be.

This morning. Was looking for sleet and icy stuff hoping deer would be searching out my feed. Scraped ice off the truck & headed out. Excited about the cold and possibilities. Walked to my stand in the rain. Then rain, rain and more rain. 30° and rain? Radar was showing pink, and I got rain.where is the sleet? Guess it was not my day. Lots of birds and squirrel, but no deer. Left around 10 because it was beginning to rain inside my pop up about as much as outside.
Well, it was at least a quiet, peaceful morning with a good hike. Any body else have any success today?

Yeah, my trail camera photos tell me the best time to see deer at my stand is between 10:30 pm and 2 am. Except on really cold days they come out in daylight. Sometimes.

Found one spot with blood on the main trail and my muzzy with 8" of shaft by the fence line. Still no luck.

Never found the other 21" of arrow. The brood head had hair and meat in the blades and shaft was plugged with what looked like lung and blood

Oh man, so sorry to hear that. that thought always bugs me when hunting in the evening the way we do here by ourselves. I have got to carrying a lantern in the truck when I hunt evenings just for that reason, after the last deer I shot left little to no blood trail I could find right at dark. Found out by logical reasoning, and some prayer for sure.

What size buck is it?

Make sure you read the rules....you're only allowed one legal buck with a 13" spread or greater.
