Yesterday evening was pretty good for me. Saw 8 deer total and had three doe in bow range. Deer were moving late though. Saw all 8 of them just before dark.
Wish I had a doe tag for 2C this year.

Full moon with a low pressure moving into the area tomorrow morning. Wouldn't be surprised to hear of hunters taking deer during the mid-day hours tomorrow.

Out for a few hours this evening. Saw 6 doe right around 4:15 or so. Two came in to about 15 to 20 yds of my stand. Not real big so they got a pass.

The back of my eyelids. Can't seem to get myself out there right now. Maybe next week.

Driving back from work at night I have been seeing some good sized herds feeding.

I was going to go today but half a foot of snow fell again last night and wiped out any sign I had to follow. Its getting to the point here where walking will be tough, the road is a mess, might get out monday.

Finally got out yesterday due to family holiday commitments and not wanting to burn out during dicey weather when they might be hunkered down or risk losing a blood trail in the sleet.

Hunted the opening three hours and saw four doe/first year deer. Was back in the tree for the final two hours and saw five doe/first year deer. Nothing close enough for a shot, not really looking to take a doe off of this property anyway. Jumped a couple going in during the afternoon, too.

The amount of fresh tracks and pawings is very encouraging, and I know Te Big One is still around. Got several photos of him Thursday night.

Fair amount of squirrels enjoying the day, and in the AM, lest I be tempted to fall asleep, a pair of pilated woodpeckers were banging away at a tree about 30 yards away.

Will hit it again this afternoon when the snow quits, might get them up on their feet early.

I got out of blind later in the afternoon and walked quietly deeper into woods away from the creek. I saw 2 deer coming towards me from my right through a thicket 50 yards away. I kneeled down, next to a small tree, both does crossed with in 15 yards of me. They never saw or winded me. Unfortunately I only have a buck tag left. Neat being that close at eye level though!

I had 5 doe at 20 yards this afternoon. I took the biggest,
ran about 30 yards, easy tracking in the snow.

Hunted a state park in 2A Saturday. Saw 7 does and had 3 of them at 10 yards hunting with my bow. A buddy of mine shot a doe with his flintlock. Heading back New Years day and i'm thinking about taking my Hawkens, except i like the fact that my bow seems to go off every time.
