Hunted SGL 282 (the Akeley Swamp) this morning. Plenty of deer sign there, but I didn't see any deer. I shot an 8-point opening day
so I was still-hunting for a doe, and it was one of those days when the wind was at my back the whole time. No matter which way I turned, the wind turned, too.
I've never shot a deer in this swamp. I've come close a couple of times, but never won the cigar. Mostly I don't see any deer. I don't know where they bed in the daytime, but there must be a dry spot somewhere no one goes that holds a hundred deer. I've done some shed hunting there, but have found only 3 spikes and a couple of small deer that apparently shed their entire skulls.
This afternoon I might sit in my treestand out back, but I doubt the wind will be right for it.
