Planned on hunting after work, but the rain has started here. I may put the rain gear on and sit in a stand for a few hours.

The older I get the better I was.

After work today. Same as yesterday I get about an hour or so but it only takes a second. Snow here in the east through the night. Off tomorrow and Thursday. Half day maybe Friday and all day Saturday. I'm seeing deer just not the right ones. Good luck.

Get off the couch and do something constructive.

Hunted SGL 282 (the Akeley Swamp) this morning. Plenty of deer sign there, but I didn't see any deer. I shot an 8-point opening day so I was still-hunting for a doe, and it was one of those days when the wind was at my back the whole time. No matter which way I turned, the wind turned, too.

I've never shot a deer in this swamp. I've come close a couple of times, but never won the cigar. Mostly I don't see any deer. I don't know where they bed in the daytime, but there must be a dry spot somewhere no one goes that holds a hundred deer. I've done some shed hunting there, but have found only 3 spikes and a couple of small deer that apparently shed their entire skulls.

This afternoon I might sit in my treestand out back, but I doubt the wind will be right for it.

Went out for a few hours today. Walking in the woods was a no-go as it sounded like walking on corn flakes. Stuck to the trails, paths and overgrown fire line cuts. Did a 4 mile loop on the game lands, but saw nothing. Was really hoping with the change in weather coming that the deer would be moving, but............there has to be deer.....for them to be moving! lol

Wind was brutal this am. That switched to rain and 35 degrees by the afternoon. Nothing seen, so I'm calling it a day an hr early. Back out Friday afternoon and Saturday.
