    Good luck out there this morning. Unless something pops up at work, I plan on being in a blind tonight with my daughter in hopes of tagging her first buck.

    Out in Ottawa County public. Wind is swirling bad on the river bottom. Had a doe, fawn and spike feeding 60 yards away on the other side of the ridge. The wind is in my face for the most part but the doe started getting nervous and sniffing before she started to blow. Plus side, the stand that was near here is now gone. Must have seen my gut pile from last week and found out he wasn't alone

    Out in Van Buren. Hoping the forky I passed last night blew up into a big 10 and strolls through my shooting lane.

    Crazy action last night. Passed a couple of does because they had smaller deer sticking right with them. I keep anthropomorphizing the deer when I see them with kids. My shooter buck really f-ed with me yesterday as he decided to stay way S of me and on private the whole time. I tried to grunt him in. No response. I tried to snort wheeze at him. No response. He just stared in my direction from 150 yards out. I had 7 does work their way directly under me so it was an exercise in holding still so as to not get my tree blown out. I had to wait about a half hour after dark to come down because I could still hear so many deer around me. Fun times. Plus, I found the arrow that I lost last week that had fallen off of my quiver.

    Now I just need to remind myself that I'm out there to shoot a deer and not just observe them.

    Good luck today. I'll likely be heading out for an afternoon to evening hunt.

    Had my target buck at 40 yards. No shot opportunities. Couple doe/fawn pairs since then. Here’s to hoping he comes back.

    2.5 eight in the big plot at first light and six doe sporadically feeding around. Looks like there may be one fawn that's been abandoned.

    Live from the home office...for just a few more hours. I'm hitting the road to Michigan by noon and will be in a tree a few hours later for my first sit of the year. My dad saw two shooters last night, so anticipation is quite high!

    Ohh good vocabulary! I had to google it to be honest.
