Same for me.. Just got in from the last sit of the year. A balmy 15 degrees, didnt see anything but a great last day of 2014. Now, bring on the ice. I will be getting all the hard water gear out this weekend.
Sat for couple hours this afternoon on new spot. A friend has small plot surrounded by a lot of undeveloped land. Hunted there couple weeks ago and saw some. Didn't see or hear anything tonight, but still great to be out. Surrounding land off limits. Will try to get out couple more times, mainly to discern travel patterns and prep for next year. Freezer already full so no pressure. it's ground hunting w bow - great fun.
I finally put my tag on a 6point last night. I had 5 bucks come through almost together. One of the 8s got by so I settled on a 2-1/2 year old 6pt. I passed him many times this year but the fat lady is ready to sing. This will be the last hunt on this property for me. My wife and I closed on a house about 30 miles from the bridge so we are off on a new adventure.
