Crunchy, loud walk in! I can’t tell if that’s the moon or sun in the sky! So bright out! Good luck!

Didn't even have my biw pulled up in the stand and a young 8 point walked by me. Hope this is a sign of things to come. Good luck to all.

Well climbed in the stand at 6 and around 7:15 I had the 8 pointer I call super 8 walk into 20 yds broadside and offer me a shot !
I gave him a pass because he wasn’t as super as I thought he was ! Oh well maybe his daddy will show up !!

Been a busy morning in the stand. Seen a total of 13 deer. 1 was a buck. Not the one I seen last night. It must of been hit by a car bc it's right leg is busted and it could bearly walk. It came to 20yrds broadside. I took the shot. It's a decent 6pt. I just got back to the truck to get the dragging rope and strip off some layers. I watched him wobble off and fall around 50yrds out. I'll post a pic and story later.

I applaud your restraint, especially on tough ground like you're hunting on. You've been grinding it out and deserve a good deer. Hopefully his dad shows up for you.

Keep after them Redlab. My area of 2G really turned on in the last 2 days. From nothing moving to seeing bucks everywhere. Chasing, tending, lurking. One of those big boys is going to make a mistake.

Congrats Madhunter!

Keep after them boys, I've seen 4 bucks so far this morning driving around for work.

I finally got a chance to shoot a mature doe this morning. I can't be happier to have meat for the freezer. It was interesting that the two resident doe in the small woods I hunt were with their fawns agian after being separate the last few weeks.

Congrats!

In the stand at 6:15, sat till 10.. Saw a total of a big fat zero!! Deer in my area are gone, don’t see bucks nowhere including the Does. It’s like they all migrated out the the Muncy Hills area. Anyone I talk too also are seeing hardly anything. Congrats to the lucky hunters so far. Now it’s down the the wire..

I’m packing up. 3 doe and 1 button buck. Had about 20 turkeys go by about 10:30 but to far out and moved up the hill. I got tomorrow morning for a couple hours and then that’s it for me.

Only saw 2 bucks and 2 doe so far. Been in the stand since 7:00. Did get down once to change stands though. Only staying till 2. I keep hearing about the magic hours 10 till 2. Im not convinced but I also know you'll never kill one by being in the house.

Went out this morning hoping to fill a doe tag if the right doe came through. Been seeing lots of deer from this stand until today. Very slow. A 4 point and 2 does that were too far away.

Had a decent 8 point that was working my way, he looked up the mountain and off he went. Must have been a doe up in the thicket. I got down around 10 and walked the trail the buck had to cross as he went up the mountain and he had some fresh scrapes he had made. Going back in there this afternoon.

Another long day. 2 in the morning and 4 in the evening. Saw maybe 2.5 or large 1.5 year with doe on my way in in the evening.
Checked cams to find a spot for tomorrow and nothing. Pretty much all buck activity was between 11-3 and 11-11. Hardly anything on cam. Lots of tracks in the snow but now pattern or reason (heading away from bedding and corn)
I may just hunt off my front porch as feel it’s a wash in the woods., lol!

After not seeing any for 3 straight days and having those winds in my face it finally picked up tonight, seen a really good buck on the way in. Then like some one flipped a switch, they started moving about 4. Six doe came through and this one was trailing last. Put a great shot on her and she piled up in sight.... I love My Hoyt.... FMJ Shafts, Rocky Mountain Premier broad heads...
