Once again more of the same this morning. We've been seeing them, just not getting any shots on them. We had two small bucks come in fairly early. Then, around 8, Out in front of us I seen 2 does coming up the hill. About a minute later a pretty nice buck was following behind them. If those does would have kept on coming up I'd probably be showing you some pictures of my daughter's buck. But, unfortunately that did not happen. We will be going out this evening and tomorrow morning. It's been awhile since I have done an evening hunt. it could prove to be interesting. We have some stands pretty close to each other and she said she wants to split up now. I said no problem. If she would have been in the one stand the other day she would have had a shot at Brutus. I will get back on after we get back tonight and let you all know how it goes. Good luck and happy hunting to all.

This evening was almost a
This evening was almost a bust. We went to our one spot and 2 other people were doing stuff to their stands. One of them is strictly a gun hunter and he said he would be there for an hour or so yet. So, we went to our other spot. We were completely settled in the stand at 4:17. It was a little late but I figured as long as we got in there quietly we would be ok. By 4:25 we had a 6 point walk out past us. My daughter said no and let him pass. Then about 4:45 I heard some movement through some brush and trees about 50 yards out in front of us and slightly to our right. I finally seen a white patch. I bleated on the can and the deer immediately looked my way and stared. He probably did not move for about 15 minutes. He finally started walking my way and I recognized him immediately. It was my long lost buddy Twin Towers. I could not believe my eyes. I thought he looked big in those pics I have of him. He was humongous. I think he easily grosses over 200". He started walking towards us. There is a patch of trees between us and him. He is about 30 yards away now but there is no way she can get a shot at him. It looked like he stopped back behind those trees and was rubbing and making a scrape. He stayed back there for another 20 minutes then left. I tried everything. I grunted, snort wheezed, to no avail. I just wonder if I had taken out the doe decoy if it would have made a difference. Oh well, we will be back at it in the morning. Good luck and happy hunting to all.

Bugs, are you sure you aren't
Bugs, are you sure you aren't hunting here in NC? I'm having the same problems as you.
Yesterday, some guy drives down a woods path which is just over the property from me with his radio blarring. When he gets to the end of the path, he starts firing off shot after shot. He must have shot nine times before he back in the vehicle, turns around and drives out with the music turned all the way up.
Today, a neighbor on the other side decides to drive down the path around the soybean field at five o'clock in the afternoon.
What's up with that? I can't figure it out. Maybe I'll have some silence when I'm on stand tomorrow.

This morning wasn't as good
This morning wasn't as good as it's been the last couple of days. I saw a 2 year old 6 point and my daughter saw a doe. She said she heard other other deer and even heard a buck grunting behind her stand but she only seen the one doe. We are going to try and go out every morning and evening until Satutday evening. Our high school team won it's first playoff so we will be going to the second playoff game which is Saturday night. Good luck and happy hunting to all.

It was a pretty slow evening. We only seen one 2 year old buck that my daughter didn't want to shoot. Towards dark we heard a few moving but we never seen them. Hopefully tomorrow morning will be better. Good luck and happy hunting to all.

This evenings hunt my
This evenings hunt my daughter seen three does from her stand and I didn't see any at all. As long as we keep going out I will keep the reports up. I wish we would have went to this stand location Tuesday morning. Look what came by about 9am. She would have had about a 22 yard shot at this boy if she chose to take him. Then there a couple night shots of some other bucks. One of them is Brutus and the other buck I'm not sure of.

Saturday morning is a maybe. saturday night is out because of the football game. At this point Sunday morning and evening both look pretty good. I will keep you updated when we go out. Good luck and happy hunting to all.

Well, we didn't get to go out
Well, we didn't get to go out this evening either. Hopefully tomorrow morning we will be out in the woods again. If we don't get out in the morning it won't be until Sunday until we can get out there.
