Hung my Tree Stand Today

I put it near the location I hunted last year, but I think it will be a much better spot.

It is between a bedding area and a corn field with two well worn trails coming together.

The sweet part is I can come into it from a dry creek bed that will allow me to slip in and out unseen or unsmelled.

I saw some massive tracks today.

Awesome Big smile That sounds like a great setup. I love using those creeks to get in and out, especially if it has about 6" of water running helps to keep you silent along with the unseen and unheard. Will be alot of dry leaves soon. I was out this weekend fine tuning some more stands. Have some spots that are looking pretty good Thumbs up Checked a trail cam I put out last week and it had 13 hits. Can't wait to get the pics back

You'll have to share the pics here.

I am excited about hunting. Last year they had beans planted, but I think the deer will prefer the corn.

I should have them tomorrow. Hopefully they'll show some good sign. I'll definitely post Thumbs up I walked the edge of a corn field yesterday and had deer walkin' 5 rows next to me until they figured what I was and they sounded like a tornado running out of there. One decent buck.
Did you see alot in the beans last year? Can you convince the farmer to leave you some standing corn?

sounds liek a sweet set up brother!

Hope you connect on a good one!

I pent monday in the woods for an hour or so, checked my stands and saw some activity had been through there.

Wanted to hang a stand but I was down for 8 days with Lymes disease. Doctor caught it quick and had me on antibiotics.........ran fever from 102-14- for 5 days straight.

Better now but still weak.

Anyway, my buddy went to north Louisiana this past weekend and hung up 4 stands in some hot areas in the swamp so we can hunt and film from there.

One camera had 189 pictures of deer in two weeks.

No big bucks but later in the year, a place that many does travel, will attract some good bucks!

Thier club only shoots 135 or better.

Rajun sounds like you've had a tough time. Hope you get your strength back soon.

Just got my pics back and I think I had a twig right in front of the cam that set it off on windy days. Did have 2 deer pics though. One small buck in velvet and the rear end of another. Luckily I saw that twig when I was there last weekend so I trimmed it all back. Still alot of sign in that area, I'm sure I'll have more pics from that spot.

No, didn't see many in the beans last year, but I hope to see more this year from this stand location. The trails are already well worn and just lots of different tracks in the corn near where I'll be hunting.

Bummer about the pics, but hunting is trial and error so I bet the next set will better.

Got some better pics today off my new digital cam. Unfortunately I looked at the pictures at my dad's house and got home to realize I erased them off the SD card Brick Wall,) I'll recover them the next time I go to his house next week. DAMN!
