    Finally!! I’m finally seeing deer! It’s been real slow the last couple weeks, I could hear 2-3 bucks grunting back in the woods before it was light, since then I’ve seen 4 bucks and a doe and another good buck walk right under me before it was light enough to see my sights.

    Hit my grunt call after hearing what I thought was chasing off to my side. The doe from this morning pops back out in front of me, watched the river bottom and move back off up the ridge. Never seen a doe investigate a grunt.

    My chasing I heard, nothing from that direction. Blue jays are making noise so that must mean a buck is coming, or they are just being blue jays

    Exciting morning, almost shot a big buck sitting 100 yards from my house. Got his pics back here this am so I snuck back and had him chasing does around soon after daylight. He ran past me in the wide open at 30yds but I couldn’t get him to stop. Have does out here still, but I think the one he wanted took him elsewhere now.

    Snuck in to a swamp at first light to a ground setup on public. Expecting mid day cruising through a funnel area. Heard something in the brush ahead and some tinkling. Thought maybe had got in on a couple bucks sparring. Turns out a duck hunter was on the pond that makes up part of the funnel. His calls were tinkling together He didnt make it to where they came through so ground scent shouldnt be an issue. Guess I will stick it out since I am here. [​IMG]
    Hopefully the deer still work through

    Seen 11 so far. 4 were little bucks. Got a 2 year old 7 point that showed up and has been bedded by me since 8:30 in some thick brush. IMG_20201029_090011297.jpg

    Morning going kinda like expected. Had the doe group(At least 8)run back and forth 3 times by mostly small bucks, I thought I may have seen a good rack, but can't be sure. All the action has been 100 yards in front of me. The doe are gone now from what I can tell. I'm in my climber thinking about making the move. It could be risky, but hopefully worth it.

    Wind picked up, put my jacket on and still flat out cold. Planned to hang in the tree all day. Bucks sparring at less than 20 yards around 7 but too dark to make out bodies, much less points. Chased each other off a few minutes later. Two grouse strolled through, followed by spike. Two does just before 9. Scrape and rope licking branch are being used.

    Brrrrrr...that wind bites 16039801486969027756779614863219.jpg
