Hoping to get out in 2A this afternoon. Maybe today I will remember to take my possibles bag with me. Not that I forgot it yesterday or anything like that.

I went out in rifle season and pulled in to get my gear on. Reached in to grab my rifle... it was at home.

I would feel even worse if I remembered that I didn’t put my doe tags in my wallet when I arrived at my hunting location during early muzzleloader season this year. But of course I couldn’t be THAT stupid twice in one season. Worst part about the possibles bag is that I had made a list so I wouldn’t forget anything and it was on the list!

It was a great morning in the woods. Just not MY morning. I was tucked up against a blown down tree top long before first light. Little drizzle spitting off and on. I was there because yesterday I found three scraps in a row still be worked. Ten minutes after first light I had three does coming my way. Then they suddenly spooked. Tails waving. I know they couldn't have seen me but the wind was changing direction left and right so I figure they winded me. No other explanation. Its tough when the wind keeps changing direction. Fortyfive minutes later I had a small deer come within 20 yards. Couldn't have been 70 pounds. I let it walk. About 10am I had a fork horn buck show up. Had to let it walk as well. Then minutes later another smaller rack fork horn showed up this one with brow tines but it went by at a steady walk just a little farther out than I wanted to shoot at it moving. I'll see that one again with a little luck.

So the deer are certainly moving today and I'm having some lunch and heading back out.

Yesterday I saw one big doe but got no shot at her.

Was planning to head out this am, but running on little sleep and with the warm temps I think Iíll take a pass until next week.

It's hard to get excited with the lack of any snow. And nothing in the 10 day forecast.

I hear ya, I’ve been waiting for the white stuff myself.
60 degrees today, sure doesn’t feel like Flinter season.
