    Been in the stand for over a half hour waiting for first light...Seems a lot windier than what was forcast.

    Finally had a mature buck on camera and starting to see some pre-rut activity show up. Hope to see him today!

    Breezy, overcast, and 37 degrees here in St. Clair County.

    Good Luck!

    Things just went from bad to worst ! Looks like my hunt is over, In 41 years I have never had my bow fall from the stand, went to hang it up and missed the hook!

    Amen to that. And thank you for what you do. My brother is an RN and my son is a doc. Challenging time for health care workers. Be safe.

    Sorry man that hurts, especially this AM
    You said things weren't ideal and were deer blocked on the walk in; maybe it is a omen.

    Regroup and get set for a late AM/afternoon sit. Good things will happen

    Doe, dawn, and a 4pt so far. Windy.

    Couldn’t help myself and tickled the rattle bag a bit a few minutes ago. Got the 4pts attention.

    Wind seems to be settling down a little. It is supposed to shift from NW to straight north this morning...both work well for this stand.

    Back at the truck......I’m so mad at myself, good thing it didn’t hit the ground to hard because of all the branches it F N bounced off of. But I did get lucky because the sight barely got tangled with the barbed wire fence before it flipped around to the ground.....is it to early for a beer ?

    Just got busted by a tall 4 point.
    He ran right down the field and stopped directly in front of me at 10 yards.
    He was sniffing the doe in heat I have out and just as I started to draw he turned and looked right at me, snorted and jumped into the brush.
    He crossed the drag line about 30 yards and stood there a couple minutes and walked off.
    Foiled lol.
