    Do you and your family run trail cams in WI? I couldn't remember if you had posted pics from there before, or what the land was like that you guys hunt there

    Yeah, we run cams down there. They were dead until about the 28th of Oct this year. There's one really nice buck that my brother has had under his tree at dark a couple times this season, Silas.

    I don't have any photos of him other than this one my brother texted me.

    I know he got a sweet video of him walking in front of his stand while he was hunting in new spot :evilgrin:

    He looks sweet. I love the mass. Good luck to you guys on him. In the middle of a sit I switched stands last Sunday and missed my chance at the only shooter I've had day pics of for a few weeks standing right in front of the stand I was in. Always a great feeling having the cam there instead to rub it in.

    Not too shabby. Great crappy lake in the winter. Good overall in the summer.

    Going to try and sneak out this afternoon for one last sit.

    Just had this little guy in front of the lodge. Not sure if he's been shot or gored. Seemed to be doing alright, but I'm not sure. I'd be more worried about exposure than anything. I'll have to think about it if he offers a clear chip shot. We'll see I guess.

    I'm going to sit back up behind the lodge again on LW Ridge. I'll pull the stand when I'm done tonight. Tomorrow I'm going to pull the LW Elite on Whistler's Ridge so I can bring that to WI.

    I'll get ready after lunch and see you all in the stand.

    Pretty quiet so far. Been keeping busy watching chickadees and mice.

    Yes. Not sure how hard, but I'll get out. I'll head across the lake a few times and maybe to the old cut S of the resort.

    Besides, I gotta test the threshold of the Heater Body Suit :tu:

    Doe and fawn skirted me. Could have been the source of the bleat earlier.
