Day 12

I am hitting the road to SGL with flintlock hoping to beat some rain moving in. Have antlerless tag. Just good to be off. Tomorrow may be a washout.

Heading out shortly, have a long walk to the top of the mountain, at least the rain is to hold off here until after 9.

Been sitting here since 0515. Deer just ran past me at Mach speed. I’m on the ground overlooking a bedding area. Deer was directly down wind when it started running.

I’m gonna try to be out tonight. The weather for tomorrow doesn’t look good and I’d bet it’ll keep most guys in.

Been out sitting since 0645. Cold with a breeze here in 1B. Plan to sit most of the am and then take my little guy out this afternoon for the last hour. Today is it for me due to work tomorrow. Hoping to connect with a big DMAP doe.

Just got the Pan primed in 4C. More of a scouting mission than anything. Was hoping to have two good weather days to hunt/scout. Doesn’t look good.

As I heard leaves crunching I could not tell which way it was I turned around to watch where I thought it was and then the sound literally behind at 30 yds of a deer explode and spin and I watched as the buck bounded away to maybe 100yds and walked away. Not sure of exact size. But a bigger deer. Amazing how the sound was confusing in these crunchy leaves🤔

I killed a hog of a doe this morning. I was walking the trail to get to the top of the mountain and had another 20 minutes to get there and i looked down the hollow and from a distance i couldnt tell if it was a log or a deer, i scoped it for like 5 minutes. With is being drizzly i finally saw the head move, she was pretty far and i took the shot. She dropped right in her tracks and deer scattered everywhere. I didnt see any antlers on the other so i gutted and tagged her and went looking for a buck. No buck seen but i knew the drag was going to suck as i was about 1.5 miles away from the truck. Instead of dragging her 150 yards straight up to the trail i had to drag down the mountain a little then drag her up hill a little until i met the other trail. Took forever as the trails all became ice and i kept falling. I swear i shot the biggest doe on the mountain. Now time to butcher and sit on a hitting pad lol.
