The worst sit that I had last year was on Thanksgiving morning. Was sitting on a skunk for the first time of the season and at 7:45 my target buck walked out in daylight for the first time. Was a little late for Thanksgiving with the family. Good luck tomorrow.

Some of the best deer and duck hunts are always Thanksgiving and Christmas morning.

Watching the lightning and rain light up my windshield while headed north. Iím a stupid sob for hunting in this stuff. With the way the Ghost has been almost strictly nocturnal I feel like rain events may be a reason he would get on his feet. Isnít it funny how we (I) rationalize reasons to hunt.... ďhe has been gone 3 days, he is due to show back up.Ē, ďitís raining and I just know he will show in the rain.Ē, ďhe should get on his feet with this wind switch from North to southĒ.... I can pretty much convince my self each next hunt will be his last lol.

Very thankful for my family and wife that allows me to hunt as much as I do. Here is a photo of us at last weekends wedding festivities.

Sitting at the gate watching it pour. I have 3 options. A box stand on an oat patch thatís about a 100 yard walk but least likely option to kill him. The back porch which is an open tripod about 700 yard walk or the apple pen which is a 16í ladder stand thatís a 900 yard walk. The apple pen has been most consistent with him so thatís where I most likely head. Iím going to ride it out as long as I can then throw on the rain gear and head in. Looking like the hardest rain will be done shortly after light.

When I first started hunting ET 35 years ago the rainy days quickly became my most anticipated sits. I would see bucks on the move I had never seen before in rain so hard you could barely see 50 yards. Good luck sir. Your dedication is sure to pay off. BTW you have a beautiful family. Congrats sir.

Good luck! Love being in the stand right after a rain, if a wind switch is involved even better.

Nada. Sat as long as I could. Box stand would have been my choice if it was much colder or I was hunting all day. Soaked and headed to the festivities. My lease mate will be back hunting tomorrow pm. Sunday is the next free day but May can hunt the afternoons fri/sat depending on circumstances. Happy thanksgiving everyone!

Lol. I can relate. The deer we are hunting is not spooked. We are seeing plenty bucks totally unaware of us too. Maybe today is the day you and dad both kill very similar deer.

My two friends I split the place with are hunting it tonight. I stayed home and making cookies with my daughter. Itís the one guys first hunt there. He put in a bunch of work and is a good dude. It would be super fitting for him to kill him first sit with me and Dane having a 130 hours into him . Iíll be back in the morning if he isnít dead tonight

That’s what it’s all about buddy! Congratulations to you all for reaping the reward of hard work put in on a property.
Big Bucks will make grown men sick with jealousy, but it’s an awesome feeling when you are just as happy for your buddy’s to put one on the ground.
