    Well awoke to the pitter patter of rain. It wasn't supposed to be here till noon according to the weather report. Looks like an all day thing so I'm sitting out today. I could stay inside and get started on our remodeling or go duck hunting. QUACK QUACK that's my decision. Good luck to everyone hunting today.
    Shoot straight be safe!

    Was trying to start LFTS. By time I’d struggled through remembering how to start a thread Fisherman beat me to it:(
    I’m live from the shop. Anyone brave enough to go out this morning? Hope you remembered your life jackets!!!! Looks like a couple of crappy days ahead should make for a great weekend!

    I'm taking the next couple of days off to. I don't feel like getting soaked and have this creeping crud get worse. Finally starting to feel better. Gonna recoup and hit it hard Fri. Good luck to all of you brave souls who hunt today. Shoot straight and above all be safe

    Hey guys. I have another beginner question. I know that nobody *prefers* to sit in the rain, but how do the deer feel about it? I got rained on all last weekend and I was in the woods/field for over 24 total hours. While it was raining, I had no action. It was only during the breaks in rain that I saw deer BUT I'm allowing for the fact that it seemed to stop raining during morning and evening times and that's generally best for deer. My schedule dictates tonight as being my best chance to get out for the next week but if it's sleeting, are the deer just bedded down?

    Also, I just got one of those solo tree climbers that has the braided cable around the tree and the v at the bottom that digs into the bark to secure you up there.... Will that still be safe to use in garbage weather?

    Thanks for any wisdom you guys can send my way.

    I'm actually lfts. Been set up in the blind for about 20 minutes. Light rain here. Planning to so all day. Probably the quietest 1/2 mile walk in I've ever made.

    Ground size that sucks about that buck last night. I had my #1 get hit by a car a few days ago south end of my section.
