I have my uncle who is senior hunter coming over in AM and sitting on the ground in a blowdown that I trimmed out and put a bucket to sit on back in october that overlooks one of the major travel corridors on my property. If he doesnt shoot one first, around midmorning I will sneak through and try to push one past him. Undecided if I will carry my rifle or not while I do the push. Good luck to all who are heading out!

Looking at radar ice/freezing rain may be here by 11:00a.m. in my area.May not go since I have a descent drive to the SGL I hunt and a good walk in.May not make it out in time to avoid the ride home if it's bad by that time.May hold off till later this week.

Plan was to work until 2 here and be in the woods by 330 to sit until dark. Got called in early, so we'll see if that happens or not. Good luck to everyone!

Update...the Corolla was successful in harvesting one on the way to work this am. Might consider that a harvest for the day and take a nap instead

I plan on hitting this last week hard. I got my fingers crossed, hoping that I could put one in the freezer this year. Best of luck to the hunters that make it out.

Heavy freezing rain around Pittsburgh this morning. Supposed to change to a few inches of snow.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Went out behind the house to one of my blinds this morning. It just started lightly snowing. Once I got to it and settled it was a blizzard and wind was howling. I know they weren't moving. I stayed til 845 and bailed. Supposed to let up/stop early afternoon. Repositioned a blind yesterday and am feeling very good about tonight's sit. We'll see fingers crossed. 2 tags left. I think this is gonna be the best week of the season.

16 years and counting. Welcome to the life of a Buffalo Bills fan!
