My view. On top of a hill with woods behind me and a creek straight in front of me.

Just saw this.
I was hoping it was a distraction for a deer to come in. It wasn't

We had duck hunters surrounding us yesterday morning. Not so much today. I shot a doe earlier. Back in the stand for a while. Hoping my wife sees something too!

One more try. Gus decided not to come......kinda disappointed but not gonna force him. Different spot this evening. Sitting in same bottom just opposite sides. Snuck in without having to drive in. Creek on west side, partially mowed bottom out front, fenceline on east side with thick woods north of fence row(yes fence is ours). Will update later. Can shoot either lane.
