Holy cow. I’ve covered in deer right now. Bucks chasing a hot doe. Grunting, yearlings running everywhere. Best day so far. I’m inside a major bedding area. I got in at 0445 and got busted setting up. Deer blew and ran off. I guess they came back and were on edge. Then I saw the buck and the mature doe peeing every few minutes. Hoping for a decent one to come in. The buck dogging her isn’t legal. I will shoot her though and use her tarsals the rest of the week.
Just hit a decent 8. Shot a little back. He ran 50 yds, stood for 5 min. Or so, stumbled a little, breathing labored, then bedded down. I can see him, looks like head is down but going to wait at least a half hour quietly.
Man is it warm, or least feels that way, out in saw Pa. feels like mid Oct.
Got in late and I’ll stay until late afternoon unless something convinces me otherwise. One forky at daylight that liked to watch me climb and get set up. Nice and calm out with slight breeze every once and a while in perfect direction. Hopefully the wind swing takes a while. Soon as it hits Sw I’m done as blow right into bedding area
