    Saw a nice 8 yesterday morning but he was 30yards out through some thick brush. I couldn't get a shot. Last night I saw 5 including one nice one. There was chasing going on towards last light.

    Sounds like a couple of really good sits. I've been rained out and thunderstormed out the last few days. Tomorrow is looking like a better wind with less chance of heavy rain. HOpe you get a crack at one of the good ones again...

    I'm heading out this afternoon again. Its was dead calm this morning! It was an absolute blessing to sit there and watch all the wildlife (except deer lol).

    How do you like your Garmin Xero? Garmin makes some amazing products. I've been using IQ bowsights for a couple years and just picked up an IQ Define Pro. I can't use peep sights. The IQ has the "retina lock" that eliminated the peep.

    It is amazing. Really amazing. It has a built in IQ feature where you set up the aiming device AND laser beam with this tiny round green circle to have the even smaller red pin inside of it to produce not only a confirmation that the laser is going to where you are aiming your red pin BUT to verifiy that your form is indeed identical to when you set up your sight originally. When you push that range finder button, you know immediately that your form is dead on OR a bit off. It is super easy to adjust too if you find that the red pin starts to fall outside that green circle. For when you hold on a deer for a long time, it is easy to check if you've fallen out of form periodically by just tapping the range button WHICH immediately shows you the green circle and red pin at the top of the scope. I used that feature to take my 1st deer last year several times while I was pulled on this deer waiting for it to turn broadside.

    We had a IQ sight, so it is very similar to that, only more fine tuned I think with the computer and screen integration. To top if off, the fact that you don't have to have a range finder separate to your sight is in my opinion the biggest innovation in bow hunting in decades. The computer inside does all sorts of cool stuff too. I highly recommend it to shooters looking to really up their game. Worth every penny. I got it on sale, but it was even cheaper a month later! I'd keep an eye out of Garmin coupons/deals.

    Got out a couple of times this week. Sat on one of my plots early in the week and saw 21 does and fawns. Last night I went to one of my "observation" stands and saw a nice 130ish ten point. needed a rifle to reach him though.

    21 deer sit sounds like a blast. I'm always extremely happy with just seeing at least 1 deer of any size or shape at any distance. Most I ever saw was a few years back when I had deer in front of my for a few hours, 75+, with only a few being Bucks. Took 2 doe and couldn't get a shot on the only buck that was inside 15 yards from sundown till dark, he fed right up a spot that didn't offer a shot through the branches, no matter how hard I tried!

    Well I'm back from Colorado. No elk died at the hands of my crew. It was disappointing to see people everywhere after hiking into the wilderness at 11000 feet. I quickly made up for it my first day back home taking this doe last night.

    So here's to 7 points for team Blood moon. IMG_20201017_202651099.jpeg
