Gotta 3.5 yo 8 camped out on corn right now. Soon as the coast is clear Iíll slip in.

Itíll be a short hunt this morning. I have to go to the spine doc again for an MRI, back surgery #2 most likely coming after deer season.

I probably shouldnít go with rain moving in and pressed for time but I donít want to miss another opportunity. If it happens Iíll figure it out.

Thatís a wrap. Had to hit the coyote howl to slip out. Deer already back on camera.
Headed to get this re-herniated disc looked at. Rain moving in. Iíll replace my cell cam batteries while itís raining and prob dump 50# of fresh corn.
Rain should let up before dark. Iím not missing another hunt.

Saw 6 bucks, 2 doe, 2 buttons

Just re-corned and swapped cell cam batteries.
MRI wasnít good, be going in for my second surgery in February now, going to fuse L4-L5

2nd kick in nuts, neighbor texted saying heís pretty sure my buck was on his camera last night 2 miles down the road. So I may have missed a key opportunity yesterday. He sure wasnít on my camera last night and left out headed north towards his place.

Rain just let up, picking up the kiddo from school and heading home to get dressed and slip in.

He couldnít produce a pic of said buck and said he wasnít positive, so Iím not too worried about it.
Weíve had them travel back and forth between us as you said in one night.

Either way Iím hunting every day if the wind is good, Iím not going to miss another opportunity. Iíll update when Iím in

Wind is absolutely perfect & 39* this morning. Rain pushing in around 9am

He was on the corn early this AM 12:25-12:55, hopefully he slips in at daylight for snack or follows that little doe in that all the bucks have been after. Coffee, layering up and headed in. Update at daylight.
