    Well I was gonna sit a new spot since I have 0 spots prepared for a W wind and I was already frustrated with the prickers I was covered in/sweating/wet boot from walking threw the swamp, when an older gentleman came walking out of the bedding area carrying a cross bow and proceeded to tell me how he's been "sneakin around" all afternoon trying to find a doe......I'm headed home to do chores. Good luck pony!

    Didn't see a single deer last night. I know it's early - but five sits in and nothing (I don't care if it wasn't even a shooter, just to have something would be a little more boostful). Planning on making hour+ drive to my rifle spot tomorrow morning.

    If anyone else gets out this weekend - good luck.

    I shot a doe last night - hit her a little low and back. Let her lay overnight and was able to recover her this morning thankfully. So we've got another 50 points for Team 18!

    The kicker is that I won't be able to get her in the scorecard for a couple weeks yet. I was using some products that aren't released to the public yet and can't show pics of them until they are. So for now we'll just have to wait. Unless Fitz will make an exception and let it pass if I post a couple screen shots from the video - you just can't see the weapon. I'll see if I can pull some strings and make it happen. :)

    Congrats Justin! I don't think any of us will mind if the points come now or in a couple weeks

    Congrats to those getting deer! PA deer hunting up here is awful this year. Full moon, hot Temps (for this time of year) and just no activity. Went out this morning, it was cold - nothing moved. 75° now and heading to my stand. Well see.

    I can vouch for pinks statement. Weird weather so far. Family commitments have only allowed me to get out for a couple evening sits so far.....only been seeing a few does so far, but nothing close yet. Trying a spot where my dad killed a small buck last year this afternoon.....Pretty warm still....we'll see what happens

    Hopefully I can find him to put some points up. I'm so upset with myself for not waiting and taking a crummy shot.

    Thanx that's the only thing on my mind right now here goes a sleepless night I'm going back at 4 am to sit in my stand till first light then getting down to track him I gotta do this cause it's public and I had a hunter walk up on me a hour before the shot so I gotta go back very early and wait till light to track and there calling for rain now on the morning this sucks I hope I find him I'm killing myself over this .

    Is there any organization you can call that can come out and track the deer with a dog. They have that here in NY called deer search. Try to get some sleep tonight cause it wont help anyone if you don't get sleep. Were all rooting for you.

    I've let many deer go with that shot. Since your getting bubble blood, I'd agree with you and say lung blood. You may have only gotten one lung so good thing you backed out. Dead deer I'd say, but may be a longish track job. How did he act when you shot him?
