5 doe, 3 bucks, one of which as a shooter 8. None took the heavy trail I’m on. 45 yards to the East and I would have been on blood about now. Going to hold out here until tomorrow and see y’all what happens. Torn about relocating a bit to the East or waiting .

Hopefully people know the difference between intuition and instincts.

Intuition - Emotionally based responses which are often counter intuitive.
Example: The H is a hunt of the lifetime, so don't take the risk of missing out.
Feeling: I should set up a stand on the heavy trail because deer use this as a main highway.

Instinct - Experience and knowledge based response.
Example: During pre-rut and rut doe's are trying to avoid raging bucks, deer are aware of hunting pressure, and buck's rarely utilize main trails for travel.
Facts: Don't go against the laws of nature because you will lose. Find the hard to travel trail or the thickest, nastiest, untraveled area that will provide deer shelter and then setup with right wind.

Pulling for you guys! Make it happen.

Looking for LDPs!

Squirrels and coyotes this morning, moved midday, buck at 1715- too far and only for a brief second or two, pigs right at dark.

Moving noonish tomorrow for the Sunday cold north wind, good luck guys.

You showed some restraint on that second one.. I say 80% of time on the H, that buck leaves with an extra hole..
