Should have hunted Sunday. Big Boy was all over the place from 8am-2pm. I got too busy working on the house and kept thinking it was a perfect day but that's my luck. Lol

Settled under a cedar in a small thicket. He came through 50 yds from here a couple times Sunday. See what happens this evening.

30-06 He moves through too fast for the bow right now. If I don't kill him by mid December I may switch back to bow when he gets on a pattern again.

Skunked! Thinking tomorrow I will get to the ranch early and get some work done. Be in the stand between 8-9am and hunt until 12pm. This buck seems to like late mornings. Have a couple spots corned for the Doe's and will set up in between them back in the woods. Pick and tree and plop next to it. Will update in the morning.

Settled in for a late morning to lunch hunt. Have to work later this evening but late morning/midday seems better than evening right now. Already seen a cull my son is after and a small 8pt. They are definitely moving.

No luck. Saw deer so that's a plus. Just a matter of time. Have to run to town and get a few things done and have a busy rest of the day.

Neighbor killed a big 8pt yesterday evening. I heard the shot about 5:15. Hopefully I can get it done soon

Sitting 2 properties over on my in-laws place. Checked cams and big boy was on a doe here yesterday morning. Nothing here other than a tree line they like to travel. There is a feeder in the middle of the thicket. Conditions seem good. Nice drizzle and hope the doe comes running out with him on her tail.

Good luck! I'm riding around my lease checking out the logging progress. Just had 2 deer cross in front of me. Hope they're moving your way also.

I sent him a text while walking to his stand saying I was trespassing to kill the buck. He already used his buck tag on the young 10pt. I can hunt whatever.

That's an idea for a new thread. Catching yourself trespassing! Guess you've gotten so bored over the past couple months, you're having to be your own prey!

I should have hunted this morning. I just went in to freshen up the hand corn and he was in the pen. I couldn't get on him quick enough. Checked cams and he was here Friday 2 hrs after I left. Saturday he jumped in early morning 5:40am for a couple minutes. Sunday I hunted 3:30pm to dark and he was here 2:30pm-3:09pm. This morning he came in and fed for an hour and a half. Getting close and he is killable. I just need to sit a couple full days and should have him. After pressuring him today I will hold off until tomorrow to hunt. Going to get caught up with work today and free up some time.

I need a better setup for this wind. I am tempted to go in now and brush in a natural spot quickly and get out.

Mid December to February my place is swarming with deer for the winter. They get back on their feed pattern and herd up thick. Just in the last 24 hrs I have had a group of 6 bucks come in, 9 doe/yearlings and big boy with another small buck. The bedding area is 75 yds from the feed pen and I need to set up north of it a good 50-75 yds. I am really tempted to bow hunt him but cover for me in the tree isnt great this time of year.

I'm sneaking in to set up a better spot. Being in and out over the last week hasn't spooked him so this shouldn't bother him any.

I'm out. Blind set and deer all over the property. Pulling out had 4 doe inside my middle feed pen. I would stay and hunt but dang I think I have done enough damage today. Will see what tomorrow brings. Working late today to make up for time tomorrow. Hopefully stay busy and keep my mind off hunting.

Sometimes living on the property you hunt is sickening! Really hard to stay away.
