    Had a great morning hunt this morning. Think I saw 12 different bucks, kinda lost track lol. I’m back in a stand I hunted Sunday usually don’t sit them this close but there’s been a really nice buck out here last two days. Hopefully see him close tonight

  4. I am struggling, seeing some small bucks but not the ones I'm looking for.

    I can hunt tomorrow but I don't really have a good idea for NE wind. I'll be thinking about it....I'll do something in the morning. This is the good time, the next two weeks are what we wait for all year.

    Solid sit again. Had a 8 does and fawns come in at the same time after a buck pushed them to the plot. All within 40 yards. I could see the buck about 100 yards away walking through some thick stuff but I couldn’t move.
    The does we’re feeding for 35 minutes and wind was great but as it always seems to happen I felt a little cold or on the back of my neck all the sudden. One of them blew 3 times and they slowly fed off.
    Then another doe and two fawns came in with a spike about 15 minutes later. Right at last light this 8 point came in to 35 yards. I actually think he’s a two year old. Fun sit regardless.

    Tear it up this weekend mike!!!!

    Well, for those that didn’t see in LFTS thread, I spilled some blood tonight, just not what’ll get us any points lol. Unless we get bonus points for a fall turkey??

    Good job Matt!!
    I had some trouble with the wind tonight also. Had 8 does out and a 8pt came out and chased them all away. They or different ones came back out but they would get straight North of me and get all fidgety and go back then come do it again. Also one other small buck.

    Thanks fellas, felt good to break the ice and let an arrow go. I also wasn’t able to fill my spring tag as my son came right at the start of season, so a little redemption on my end.

    I was surprised to not see a deer tonight. I was going to drive up the road and see if the neighbor farm picked corn, that would explain the slow camera action and MIA deer tonight. But I got distracted tracking this bird and carrying him out along with all more other gear, felt like he weighed 50lbs after the first 100 yards lol.

    ETA: trail cam caught a pic of the bird right after my shot as he took flight, he flew about 80 yards or so uphill and seemed to have died in air as his wings were still out when I found him 5 feet in the brush.

  12. Nice shooting Matt.

    I didn't hunt this morning, wind is not good for me and it's been raining anyhow. I only have tomorrow morning as a for sure sit before I head to Ohio. I am not seeing big ones moving in daylight, but I think they have to be somewhere.
