Woods have no breeze. Light-headed and had to take my head net off. Harness is strapped good so I'm ok.

3 hrs here absolutely no movement wind nor deer. I'm climbing out and pulling card to see what ate 50# of corn in less than 48 hrs.

If he hasn't returned then I am repositioning a stand 75 yds from here and tossing 20# of corn around.

Actually no pigs on camera. It was all deer that came in and ate the corn. Doe, fawn and 9 different bucks. Doe and fawn bedded inside the pen for 5 hrs!

I found a heavy trail and set a cam on it Thursday evening. Just checked it and 3 of my middle aged 3-4 yr old bucks used it. 1 buck I haven't seen at the other spot in a while. I setup a tripod and hand corn. No hunting this evening but will be sitting there tomorrow evening!

Very cool! We will need to camp out one night it sounds like.

Just did a little pond culling. Have family down from Georgia and needed some fish to fry out this evening! Threw back probably twice this many. Now the messy part!!!

Dang busted!

Fish scraps are getting cleaned up by the buzzards quickly. I doubt there will be any leftover for coyotes/bobcats to get.

I'm getting settled in now! Good luck to you as well. Have church at 9am so will be sitting until 8:30 or so. Feeder goes off in 30 min.

Definitely a good chance of rain this afternoon. Won't stop me as long as it's not lightning. I'm set up in the front stand location and really looking forward to sitting in the new setup!

Let's see what today holds!

Best part about this afternoon is rain chances lower around 3pm. After a rain is probably one of my most favorite times to hunt other than the rut!

I decided to have a little fun before I head out and get ready for church.

I picked a leaf where the deer have been standing majority of the time coming in or leaving. Only about a 12 yd shot so nothing really far.

1st shot drilled the leaf. 2nd shot for some reassurance drilled the leaf again.


This Trad Bow sure is fun to shoot! Many chances already to take deer but I'm holding off on Doe. Can't wait to get my first whitetail with it.
