Good luck to anyone heading out today. Im getting ready to sneak around all day. Got some snow and it's windy. Perfect conditions.

As the saying goes," THERE IS NO SENSE IN BEING STUPID UNLESS YOU SHOW IT!" The driving rain that woke me early last night, along with the wind howling seemed a reason to pass this morning. The young guy who bowhunts the same farm texted he had 2 doe go past him just after daylight but out of his comfort range. (This is where the stupid comes in) The doe headed directly down the draw to where I would have been sitting and would have been an easy shot... it had not rained there, and the wind was light....AAAHHHH!!!!

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

man i just can't catch a break. i just started into the woods and didnt even make it 30 yards in the woods and there is 3 small 6 points, a giant 8 and a even bigger giant 10 laying 50 yards looking at me. I might think about saving my buck tag next year as this is the 2nd time now i seen the 8 and 10 in the late season. Ugh trying to find a doe now. Weather is crazy now and just loving it.

Just got in. Was sitting out of the wind in some fallen trees since around 315. Saw 2 yearlings at 345, a half rack spike at 425 and right at dark had 2 large deer walk by. Was too dark to tell what they were but i believe it was the the 2 large does i have seen alot on cams recently, one is an absolute COW. Work commitments will keep me out of the woods tomorrow, but here in 5C the season runs till end of month so i have a bit of time yet.
