    I got a north west wind coming in on Friday. Hopefully going to be hunting the evening. Would you sit a edge of a corn field were the would be blowing in your back. The deer would be coming behind me.

    Sounds like a plan to me. Idk enough about your spot to tell you, but if your blowing scent out to the field where you don't expect deer to be and focusing on the deer in the woods, that's a pretty classic set up. Good luck!

    Had some deer on camera at 8 am this morning. Saturday morning's temp is in the 40s here. Love it.

    If it was me I would face the woods then. It allows to attack the area that your wind isn’t blowing to. If you are facing the field and the wind swirled while they are coming from behind you may never get a shot. If you are facing the woods you may pick them off before that happens. I don’t know if you can swing your stand to that side but just a thought.

    The best weeks of the entire season are ahead of us boys! Lets goo! Frost the next 3 days. Moved most of my cameras to rut areas. Can’t get another buck with my bow, but trying to locate a mature deer is still fun.

    Have my good friend getting in one of my stands the next few weeks.

    It was 84 degrees here today. I refuse to shoot something when it's this warm. It's just not worth it

    Sat tonight I let my son pick the spot. Wind was in the wrong direction for the stand. But about 15 mins before last shooting we seen a nice 10 pointer. He checked a scrape and then went into a bean field. It was really windy and rainy so I tried a stalk. I got with in 50 yards. But no dice. Not to bad for first deer of the year

    Not much going on where I am. One doe came by about 60 yards way and that's all I've seen. Chilly morning and I was expecting to see some good movement. I'm sure I just wasn't in the right spot.
