    isolated in my garage
    I saw 13
    5 babies
    6 mommas
    1-1/2 year old 5 point
    And a very nice 3-1/2 year old heavy 8 point
    8 never got closer than 45 yards
    The first doe I saw was probably the biggest doe I’ve ever seen. Lucky for her that it’s not November 17 instead of October 17!!!

    His coat is terribly thin, would've been a rough winter for him.

    Got to one of my stands this morning and the goose hunters were already setting up so I decided to go to another spot nearby and just sit on the ground, basically to observe a spot I’ve been thinking about moving one of my stands to. About 15 minutes after daylight a small buck comes out of the thick stuff I suspected they were traveling in and crossed the trail about 70 yards ahead of me. Just a couple minutes later another small buck comes out in the same trail followed by the shooter 8 I saw Thursday evening. He’s got a nice wide, dark, rack and a big ole belly on him. Gonna hang a set there tomorrow after the morning hunt.

    Side note- finally got to try out my new First Lite Solitude set and am very happy with how warm and comfortable I was wearing it this morning. The only thing that would make it better is some deer blood on them!
     
  9. PSA....friends don't let friends buy their hunting licenses at Dunham's. Just listened to a painfully erroneous exchange at a Dunhams. Poor old boy was asking for an explanation on what the differences were in the deer tag options. Young guy behing the counter was clueless, but didn't want to sound like it. He rambled off a bunch of bad intel. I don't know what the old guy left with, but he sure was confused.

    Tell your dads, older friends and three day a year hunter types to read the digest, and know what to ask for before they go to buy a tag!

    I believe you'd get your ace kicked for saying something like that.

    Whatever that is you better wait until you have a gun in hand.

    Nephew finally got one just a bit ago. Needless to say, he is pretty stoked.
