Giving it a go this morning. Missed a golden opportunity yesterday by staying home. Bumped several on the way in. Had one walk under me in the dark. I had a decent buck working the edge, but he cut over the ridge. Little dink just wandered by.
It's starting to roll in my little corner of Preble. I started with a dink on a scrape at 5 yards under me at 0645 and when I left at 1000hrs (the wind was squirrely) I had seen 11 deer. 8 were bucks with 7 being confirmed different bucks all roaming around. One MONSTER was crashing after a doe and two 130+ bucks were on foot as well. I saw on FB "It's too hot. The bucks aren't moving. Might as well cancel my vacation." I guess not everything you read on FB is the truth.
Stellar day for deer sightings didn’t connect with a buck but I did put some meat down on a nanny whistle blower had too let the air out of her she started snorting and spooked a target buck too the next county so she came home with me tonight
I started a “From the Stand” thread over on crossbow nation and the people there love it. Thanks for the inspiration Bawana. I shot a buck opening day so next week I’ll be on doe patrol for gun season.
