Jan 8th

Anyone out today. I went out this morning and stalked a little at first light around the backside of the corn. I have an appointment today so I had to cut it short at 9. Saw 3 doe and a spiker. Snow tonight and tommorow. Lake effect bands expected. 4-8 inches. Cold and blustery with nice sustained winds out of the NW. Perfect stalking and tracking weather. Most excited I've been all season. I'm gonna kill that 8!

Taking my six year old out this afternoon. Plan on walking a few trails and maybe posting up until he gets too antsy. The odds of having a deer under 50 yards without seeing or hearing us are slim to none but he is excited and thatís all that matters. Baby steps. Last year I took him squirrel hunting with me and he really enjoyed it. If we get a few half decent days this winter I plan on taking him again.

I plan on heading out at lunchtime, woke up to freezing rain and got back into bed. Anyway, the side if the farm I usually hunt seems to be vacant of deer now. Same as the last few years. Going to set up on the opposite end of the farm whereI got the one with the flintlock pistol and see what happens.

Remember.... they're full time deer......we're part time hunters!

Out this evening. I haven't been out much this late season, so tonight has already been a success. Shooting something would just be a bonus.

Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.

They called for rain here and of corse, nothing. It’s pretty warm anyways so I opted to work around the house. I’ve got the rest of the week off so I’ll be out a few times here...
