nothing to see/read here. haven't seen a deer yet from the stand. not walking to, from or around my stand.
i have probably sat at least six times for about 3 hrs each time.

haven't even jumped up any. not sure what is going on.
my brother and one of my buds have had the same sorry luck too.

last 3 days sat 4hrs morning and about 3hrs evening each day.
yesterday eve 30min b4 dark finally saw two does behind me at 50yds cutting thru the bottom i'm sitting in.
freakin' doe saw me turn my head at 50yds thru heavy trees and small maple trees.
i still haven't figured out how she saw me. one of them started blowing and stomping, after a 15min staredown with her she finally went on her way and i was able to relax my neck and let out a silent scream as i tried to work out the crick that was now in it

found several new scrapes. they are not hitting the scrapes very hard, just a little bit of pawing.
pulled some good buck pics off my brothers camera too. buck pics are all around midnight. no daytime buck pics at all

no freakin' deer seen last three days.
i may have to resort to drastic measures .....

got 5 fall plots put in though. nothing like waiting until the opening weekend of black powder to till and plant food plots.
really it has been too wet to get much done until now.

just got back from 7 straight days of hunting.
saw several small bucks and some does as soon as the temp dropped last weekend.
i had a close encounter with a hoss in some short pines that was chasing a doe at mach ten. i couldn't close the deal.
a bud of mine shot at him at 30yds just a minute after he ran by me. the buck had it skint back running wide open. my buddy saw him start the chase in the creek but he couldn't get a shot until the buck made a lap thru the pines and then back thru the creek bottom.
i also saw at the same time two other smaller bucks chasing does all around me the whole time and i was trying to pick out the big boy. i was on foot huffing it from pine row to pine row in hot pursuit
we had a good laugh about it back at camp. my brother and a friend were giving me crap the day b4 for sitting in a lawn chair in the pines. i made a believer out of them though that you can have close encounters on the ground too
i'm heading back tomorrow after the rains quit to try to get him.

hunted last three days and big boy is still eluding me.
had several smaller bucks and does at 25-35yds but was holding my 7mm-08 instead of my bow

may go bow only starting thursday but damn i hate to have to let a good one go by at 50+yds. i may just have to carry both up the tree with me. i've done it b4 but it is a pain in the butt
