Good Luck getting the one you are after!

I have been playing cat and mouse with a buck thats got double split brows but hes either beat me to my set before sunup or has come in just after dark every time. My area is ATE UP with rubs and scrapes. Two shooters in here for sure and no telling what else. Hoping this front gets him on his feet earlier than last time. He was in here day before yesterday at 8:00

I saw a dandy on way to stand in my buggy’s lights earlier. He didn’t seem all that concerned with me being there. Hoping he slips by my set-up. Quiet so far, but nice weather.

Good bit of deer movement this morning. Real quiet. Did some scouting after the AM hunt and found over a dozen rubs, and several active scrapes in a new area. Letís see what happens

I had deer in my pens within hours of setting them up. I made mine 25Ē tall.

I used to be frustrated as it seemed the deer were purposely avoiding my feeders. Ever since fences, they have no issues coming to them.

I now tend to think they avoided them because of all the hogs. Keep in mind I was killing upwards of 70 pigs a year off three feeders.

Now, I kill less than 10, and most are from being on hand corn.

Had three bucks full on “cutting horse-ing” a lone doe Friday evening. Full on pre-rut/early rut activity as well Sat. and this morning. This is the best time to be in the woods.

Made plans to go after “Main Event “ this evening. He was under my stand at 6:55am. Forecast said NE E wind. Parked and checked NE. Got in stand.... Milk week was NW W... @&$%.... climbed out and left. Absolutely can’t hunt that wind at all.

Since I was in hunt mode I drove to where I plan on Lola hunting next weekend. Figured I’d count deer and might shoot a hog.... wind E there... climbed down and went home. Plus it was drizzling good enough to get wet. For a set I didn’t really want to be shooting up in the first place.

I’ll see if I get a break in weather and wind this week. That one stand is exactly where it needs to be.... but the wind SUCKS there... and it’s flat. I’m preaching right now, milk weed will change to way you hunt the wind. It ain’t always what you feel.... oh, and the gimmicks.... yea they are gimmicks

I put another camera on a possible trail he may be using last Wednesday. If that one turns up I can hunt the NW.... but it will be a do or die hang and hunt. There’s no way out without going through deer.... no huntable wind all week in forecast. I may let Lola shoot him if he’s looking promising

Deer moved great this morning from shooting until a little before noon. East side of Athens. Saw probably 25 different deer. Fawn crop looks better this year, the animals look healthier. Saw several bucks but nothing old enough or legal. Back to the office tomorrow and the back out again on Tuesday.

truth. This is my first year using it and it helps connect the dots as to how deer move through an area.

Some people sell it online if you canít find it. I know the hunting public does. Milk weed shows you where your thermals are going and where your wind is going when the wind isnít blowing much.

Nice buck congratulations. Looks tough to me...

Milk weed is just a woody “weed” that grows local here. You can google it for images. It will have what looks like an okra on it. Pull those off and let the dry out somewhere.... NOT IN YOUR TRUCK!!!! When they dry they will split open and are full of “fluff”... it’s like a dandelion on steroids. It will float up, down, swirl around and come back past you 10 minutes later. Lol. I have a lone wolf container I keep it in, and used milk sample tubes in past. The tubes of M&Ms at checkout counter would work great too. Pack that full and it will last a whole season (about 4 pods worth)

If everyone used it.... ozonics in the tree stand would stop completely. Lol

It’s kinda laughable to me that it’s for sale now... but then again not really. If I didn’t have a lifetime supply, I buy it and pay more money for it than any other scent gimmick
