So I lied. I got up this morning and mentally just wasn't there to go out. I sat on the couch, got one sock on, and fell back asleep. Just woke up. Looks like i'll be going out for a PM hunt instead.

My grandson decided last night to hunt a box up in our NE corner. It hasn’t seen much use since we found oak wilt around it and had to clear a ton of trees out right around it. One guy did sit in it earlier this season and I went up there in October to throw a TomCat block in. The guy who hunted it didn’t mention any mice. I think my grandson had a feeling that a 9 point he saw after night might saunter by.

So when I asked my grandson what he saw I was surprised to hear “ten mice!” I said that must have been interesting viewing and he said they settled down a bit after awhile. They nest in the old chair we leave up there, and with the mice around here this year one block wasn’t enough!

Watch it with them blocks if you have a heater. They store it. Had decon out all summer. Go get blind ready, put new tank on crank up blue flame, yup it works. Come back to hunt fire it up after a lil bit horrible smell billowing smoke. Shut off take it home, tear apart, they packed it full of decon. Now I've had it with grass and cotton and stuff but never decon.

Congrats!
Same 6 does on a mission came through about 8:00. Three good size does then the other three 2min later same path but a little tighter (12yds)to me, wind was perfect. Momma with 2 button buck fawns following. Last button kept looking back but nothing following. I think I'll backup about 10-15yds next sit. Good luck everyone that is still out.

If that’s a raised blind I’d advise putting flashing around the posts. No more mice
It's not built before they were allowed plus it's 6x6 with rough sawn pine, to lift it would take a payloader lol

Just some thoughts setting here. Am I the only one that receives less and less texts from friends in the blind in the morning as the season wears on. Your buddies text ya about 10 see any? Knowing you went. Ask them did you?"Nah have a dentist appointment at 11:30" :coco:

Another observation of my friends even during bow season. No one has any morning spots. Good example this fall asked one of my good friends you go this morning? "Nah man, don't really have any morning spots" Now he hunts 200 prime acres I've been on it, not one morning spot? There are some hunters out there that have to be setting on the Mecca's of morning spots.

Thank goodness for MS in morning where the hardcore hunters get up go out in the cold to man their phone.

Ok that is my bored worthless drivel for the morning. Carry on
Just waiting for the tractor to get here
