Man, hunting on Saturday was brutal. Rained all night Friday night and Saturday was just fog soup. You couldn't see 20 yards is any direction. We are on top of a mountain so we had it worse than the folks on the bottom. We were inside a cloud. Deer movement was zilch, not that I could see them anyway.

Late Saturday night and early Sunday morning the fog cleared, it got cold and deer were moving again. A day too late.

I had fog come in and out all morning on top the mountain. I was taking advantage of the rain the night before and still hunted slowly across the mountain. About 10am I started dropping in elevation enough that it got clearer, and I found several groups of does and a spike. By noon I was low enough there was no fog. Made it back to the jeep about 4. Was a nice day for me. About a 6 mile slow walk in 9 hours Saw 8 doe and fawns I could have shot, and 1 spike to grow for next year. Also saw 3 tails (did'nt get an ID) also found a few nice spots for stands for next season, and a stand for flintlock.

As an odd note I came across 2 scrapes and 11 rubs on a logging road. All within a 20 foot circle. Now i've walked this particular trail 3 different times since the first day of rifle and never saw that. So either theres a dumb buck that has'nt realized it's hunting season or someone is messing with me. There are 2 different 4 points I saw in that area several times in rifle season, they may be the dummies.

So for me it was a great last day. I love to stillhunt and the conditions were right to get right up on deer.

Had fog Monday morning, and fog and a heavy haze Friday and Saturday. Luckily viability never got worse than 75 yards. But Friday and Saturday it rained heavily all day long.
Could only see about 50 yds where I was.Walked down the hollow a few hrs in the afternoon and it was a little clearer the further down I went but not much.Not an ideal day.
