Got in my stand around 6 am. At 9:30 i heard voices and loud hip hop not 200 yards from my spot. Apparently some jack wagons decided to setup camp far from a designated camp site. Pretty sweet...

Decided to sit tonight.... some guy is driving a white motorcycle up and down the trailhead.

Sometimes I don't know why I bother.

I'm out as well. Had some Dad walk through the woods with his son and decided to stop 10 yards from me and teach him about different leaves and had him pick some acorns. Then some Mom and son come and stop nearby and let their dogs off their leashes to work on training them. Naturally both ran right in front of me to my corn and hung out for a while before they decided to yell at the dogs and they finally left. Public land hunting at its finest...

That happened to me on closing day when I had my golden ticket doe at the feeder. This old man was off the trail walking his dog which chased the deer away. I was literally in full draw when the dogs came in. I just laughed and the guy saw me and was very apologetic. Public land man, blessed to be able to be out there. Get em!!

Put down my golden ticket doe this morning, heading back out tomorrow. I had a nice wide 9 come through 45 minutes before the doe, maybe he'll swing back by in the morning.

Just got done with yet another unsuccessful sit. Have yet to see a deer in person. Got a pretty nice 8 pointer that tends to come by between midnight and 3 am. He comes by way more frequently than any does though. Starting to think ill be the luckiest man in texas if i end up killing anything this season.

Anybody ever decided to scout out and set up a brand new spot midseason? Seems like a **** move since everybody has already settled in... im just kicking myself for my lack of scouting skills

I have. But I will only scout off trail on weekdays to give everything time to settle. I also back out if I find others set ups.

There are deer, just walk around and hunt their trails. Good to hear there are actually people who do the right thing

Im aware there are deer. I bump them frequently walking to and from my stand. Started trying different routes to avoid that with no luck. Really feeling like i just chose a crappy spot.

I took a shot at a decent buck this morning, he looked all beat up from the rut. Had a black eye or something going on. He came in and was quartering away, I put the pin behind the rib cage and let it fly. He did I huge mule kick and took off like a bat out of hell. When I went to check my arrow I only got 6 1/2". I feel sick. Anyway, I backed out and going back with my dog, I just have to make sure I didn't get lucky. My dog has found two pigs for me so hopefully this buck is dead and she can help find it. I swear if she tracks this buck I'm taking her to Outback.

Good luck. Sounds like a buck I have video of. Completely busted up 8 point that is now a 5 point. Looks like he has raided everyone's feeder for the past 6 1/2 years successfully. Sucker is huge. Lol
