    In the stand. Didn't even have my release on yet and saw movement. 8 turkeys. Too bad they saw me before I saw them. Couple nice toms in the group.

    Slow night. No idea why. Pulled the card and deer have been all over through there in daylight. Oh well. There's always tomorrow.

    On another note, my lease I was on last year, a giant was shot off tonight. Out of a stand I hung even! I'm not upset though. Happy for him!

    Apologies about the weekend. Saturday was a bust because of weather. Yesterday turned out to be 55 and sunny. With it being the last day of vacation, I had an absolute ton of housework I had to get done.

    Back to work today, so no chance to hunt today. Still working actually. Up to 10 hours so far today trying to catch up.

    On a positive, it was 45 and overcast today. I think similar the rest of the week. Im going to try to get out early a couple days to hunt. Hoping for tomorrow, but we will see. These next 2 weeks are very busy, as we are in the final commissioning stages of a large project, but I have the weekend for sure. Hoping for more than just that though!

    Bucks are still fighting and running around stupidly. 2 were videoed in the middle of town full on fighting saturday at 9am, blocking traffic on a 4 lane road. . .

    Try a Teeter Inversion Table for your back. Buddy of mine went to Chiropractor for a year with no results. He asked the Dr about Teeter and doc said they don't work. He bought one anyway, 2 weeks later he was good as new. It's worth a try.

    Not likely to see any hunting posts from me anytime soon. . . We will see. Stubbornness didnt get me anywhere last week, so I cant chance it this time. Shotgun season opens Dec 9, so Im going to get out and get my Muzzleloader tuned up this weekend. Id like to get out and bowhunt before that, but I dont really see it happening. Who knows. Will see how Thursdays appt goes.
