I will be out this evening overlooking a field in Lehigh County 5C. My problem now is that there's a work crew on the cell phone tower making all sorts of noise that I believe has the deer hanging back. They are replacing antennas on the tower that is on our rod and gun club land. Work has to get done and I can only hunt evenings because I am working from home.
All in all I have never before had the ability to hunt this many days in a season. Making lemonade from the lemon season.
I hope today is your day in the Penns woods!

Got a late start (830), gave the climber a break and made an aggressive move with a ground blind. I have self imposed yardage restrictions with a flintlock due to confidence issues. Been hunting a climber, but keep seeing deer 40-50 yds out of range, in a brushy field edge with no trees. Hoping the blind doesn’t scare them senseless, I’m tucked in as best as I can be. Going to sit until at least 2. 🤞

I have one of those camp chair integrated blinds that is small and would probably work well in that situation.

Sat until 530. 520 three does stepped out but light levels were too low to use the fixed sights.
No shot possible.
