Friday the 29th Hunt starting soon

Heading out. Should be in stand by 115. Real windy here in the SE part of state. May be warming stand seat for first 4 hours. Hope wind settles. Hunting in a small bottom so that may help. Will update with some pics if I can get some. Good luck all.

Re: Friday the 29th Hunt starting soon

Arrived at my one location to find bottom 2 ladder pieces missing on my stand. Top still locked up this is on private property. Was in stand wed nite so had to happen Thursday or this morning. This is so common here Bucks county. No suprise. In my other stand on another property. Stinks cause I planned on hunting that stand hard for rut. Lots of Doe there. Lot of stragglers wander on property. Stand replacement has just become a yearly cost of hunting now. I am going to weld ladder together on any mote stands. I am shaking it off. If I score a big ten tonite that stand being stolen would be so worth it. Lol. Windy here. Hope it settles down later. Good luck all.

My buddy is up in one of my stands near the field in the pic. Field is about 100 yards away. He is about 65 yards from me. The stands are close but the stands are close but one is evening and one morning stand. Or in this case one is a buddy stand.

Good luck. I will be in one of my stands by about 4:00.
