    Hunted the swamp last night, Wed, hoping they'd be moving ahead of today's cold front. The wind was right and weather was gorgeous but no deer. This wknd jammed w helping one of my sisters who's quite sick. Maybe one more bow hunt before gun. Yeah, we gotta rack up some points so good luck to all who get out this wknd.

    Had a good hunt in Iowa, but came home with a tag in my pocket yet.
    Seen a lot of bucks up to 3yrs old. Could have tagged at least 5 130” class bucks.
    Saw 1 4yr old and one 5 yr old.
    No shots at the mid 150 class deer.
    If time allows, I️ might try to get back out there for a Few days.
    Lots of rutting activity seen. It’s is on down there for sure.
    Good luck this week with gun opener.

    Anyone out today? Still windy in Jackson but atleast its dry. I work today and tomorrow, then have 6 days in a row to "catch up" on my hunting. Least Ive probably ever hunted up to this point, and its killing me. But, I promised the wife Id get the new house finished up before the holidays, so thats what Ive been doing...Not getting worried just yet though, Ive had some pretty good late season hunting the last few years, and shot my biggest buck ever the saturday after Thanksgiving last season. Plenty of time left. Good luck out there!

    Hunted dark to dark yesterday in state land swamp but didn't see anything. The morning was pretty nice in Washtenaw county. Rain started around noon and kept up until around 4. Had rain jacket under camo overalls and knee high rubber boots but still git soaked - not first time and won't be last. Very few shots and nothing close, much different than what it was like 6-7 years ago. Don't think ma y guys hunt the high ground near the swamp any longer. Might sneak out w crossbow to private chunk (archery only) tomorrow afternoon if possible. Good luck.

    Man this year has been rough keeping up to date on this site. I get out in the woods and my phone will be dead 2 hours later. That is with light texting and no internet usage. Luckily, I stole my dads external battery this morning since he slept in

    Hunted wed til 1030. Seen 2 small bucks pushing does. Sat in the cottage the rest of the day. Felt great to take a nap.

    On my way out I pulled a trail cam. 3 solid state land bucks.

    Hunted all day yesterday. What a long and miserable hunt. Only seen 4 does.

    Hunting til about 11 today and then headed home. It’s not looking good for me on shooting a buck this year, unless I shoot a buck out of our plot. This will probably be my last morning hunt for the season.

    Oh well, Missouri was awesome. I’ll talk more about that later
