Amen RTH. Well here we go, I got about 3 1/2 hours sleep and then i woke up at 1:30. Been dosing off and on since unable to really fall back asleep. Its like its Christmas, lol. I think i'll just get up now because i know i won't get to sleep. Now i just need some coffee. Who else didn't get much sleep?
Heading out with my two son's here in 2A. 30 degrees and frost here with a SE wind. Got some stands up that will work with the south winds expected the next couple days and hope the deer are moving. Good Luck to all heading out.
I should have stayed in bed lol. I've got 4 guys within 150 yards of me. At this point I'm pretty much just hanging out and listening for gun shots to gauge how Archery season will be next year. Im not gonna see squat. Good luck to everyone else though.
UGH bad luck again. Last 3 weeks of archery were a total bust. Only chance I had was a small 8 point who snuck up behind me and busted me. So this morning only thing I saw was the the same buck lol. He came along the top of the ridge where my backdrop was houses and rt.100 and he busted me before he got in a good shooting position. As far as shooting , almost nothing. One shot near daybreak about 1/2 mile south, and a volley around daybreak north of me in 4C. Always amazed me how little shooting there is around here in gun season and there are deer everywhere. Oh well back at the house, I'm in thick cover and the sun makes it impossible to see, I need a brimmed hat. Came back up to get one and the wife is making me some eggs. Wanna get back down around 9:30 since 90% of the daytime activity I see on my cameras is midday here. Good luck to everyone and be SAFE.
I tagged out in archery but still had to be in the woods for the first day. Took a walk on a 4a gamelands. Just off the trail and sat down. Lots of shooting going on in the distance. Hoping my dad and nephew score today.
