    Not how I read it! Spike came in, shooed the others off and it's been dead since. Pretty clear to me. I just wanted to see a dead spike. Pretty rare around here, you know.

    I guess I could have worded that differently. Spike is going to see another day. A bb may have been in trouble. Still nothing since then. Is it 5 yet? I stand by what I said in the all dayer post. Middays have always been uneventful for me 99% of the time. Its the 1% that keeps me doing it. Kind of like dumb and dumber, "so you're saying there's a chance".

    With all that doe scent you’d think a buck would cruse this river bottom??
    Here’s to hoping so.

    I'm up in the tree, let's see if my luck can change.
    Did have a few scrapes on the way into this spot

    Wasn’t going to hunt tonight until my neighbor sent me a photo of our number #1 buck coming into my property at 8:30 this morning. Here’s to hoping he’s still in these woods. May have landed myself in the doghouse for hunting tonight but hey shell forgive me....eventually.
     
  8. That’s an outstanding buck! Love the drop! Congrats to the lucky hunter

    Just sat down 15 min ago. Saginaw County. Watched a really nice 6 or 8 when I drove in. Chased out a couple does walking in. Then found 4 new scrapes about 60 yards from my stand. I like it so far.

    Good luck everyone

    Back in the same spot as this morning in Arenac county. Dang rain needs to stop! Pulled some cards on my way in this morning and finally have some decent bucks showing up! Hopefully one makes a mistake this afternoon!

    Good luck and be safe!

    Rattled at 2. Little buck came in immediately. 15 minutes later this one did and I let him have it.

    ALWAYS better to beg forgiveness than ask permission when it comes to hunting!

    AF2615B4-52BB-4516-9443-97C3CCD374BC.jpeg I start hearing grunts inside the woods before it got light and had a buck walk under me about 7:30, still couldn’t make out how big. Then a nice buck came in grunting behind me about 75 yrds away then turned away from me. I grunted back, he stopped then kept going. Then I did a snort wheeze (which I never do because I’ve spooked them yrs ago doing it) and he stopped, turned around and started my way! He gets 10 yard away but I have no shot, then he realizes something isn’t quite right and starts walking to my left, which is great for me!! He’s now 15 yards to my left and behind me, I’m turned and ready, then he stops and is getting ready to bolt but as he turns to leave, I stop him and let it fly! He was slightly quartering away and the arrow hit perfectly. I could see blood at the impact site from my tree, waited an hour then started tracking. He went about 75-80 yards and piled up! 8 pt with two stickers, one that would’ve been sweet had it not broke off. Great morning!!
