Re: Day 11 Flintlock Season
Hunted daylight to dark today. It was still cold, 11 degrees, this morning and too noisy to still hunt through the frozen leaves. I was able to move around semi-quietly if I stayed on the logging and gas well roads. I saw a fair amount of sign in the way of tracks but never saw a deer. I am sure there were deer in the thick brushy areas that saw me and just stayed put or slipped away undetected. When I was on the way home, after dark, I saw one crossing the road at a spot where I have a blind back a ways off the road. It probably came right past the blind but it might have been after dark when it did. It seems that most of the tracks I am finding are being made at night and the deer just aren’t moving until dark.
Back at it tomorrow but I might not get out early tomorrow.
Good luck to those hunting tomorrow.
