Maybe give it a shot in a bit.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.

I hunted Saturday, Monday, Friday, Saturday. The only day I saw deer was the first Saturday. I haven't seen a tail since the first day.

The good news, I know where the deer are and it's going to be tough to get to them, but I am confident I can at least set my eyes on a few. I will hunt Thur-Saturday this week.

Decided to quit at 9 this morning. Still hunted around some thickets and no deer seen. Not even a tail. I hunted hard every day so far and only saw 4 yearling doe last Tuesday. I know they are around. Found some fresh rubs and scrapes this morning. The rubs were so fresh the inner bark was still white and green. Im off all week so hopefully i see something and can connect. Frustrating season.

I have one doe tag left for 5B, I want to save it for flintlock but I’ve been getting itchy. Nothing to stop me from taking my flintlock out now I guess. Probably going to wait though. If I get one after Christmas that will be my first time taking a deer in each season with different weapons.

Only saw the 2 fawns first thing this morning. No other hunters and no shooting. I got soaked. Back out at 3:00.

I wasn't going today, but got to work this morning and realized my CAC is still in pocket of the shirt I wore last week. Being an office weenie, no computer access means no working. Any other time of the year I would make the 1 1/2 round trip to go home for the card, but it's deer season. So,......

Steady rain here. Doubt many are out in my area as it seems most don't like to get wet...I'm probably done for the year, but if I needed meat I'd be out. I've always had good luck on rainy days.

You can't bag a big one if your not out tryin
