    Yea, but most likely if you got caught, it would be animal cruelty/abuse/disturbing wildlife...

    Well OH was a bust. Might've gotten there too early. Had a 4 point come by last night and returned this morning to find a fresh scrape by my stand. Looked like a decent size track too.

    Back to civilization where I can keep up with important things in life, like Live from the stand.

    Good luck to everyone that is out right now. Earning a few extra brownie points by taking the woman gambling tonight and then back to PA to hunt.

    In the blind with my oldest for the evening. Really hoping that tonight I finally kill one he is with me. Nothing legal is safe if it comes in range.

    Been in the tree for about an hour now, West wind 12-13mph, just got settled in and two does came from behind me and went right under me into the thicket about 30 yards away, sat this set this morning till noon, saw probably 8-9 does, 2 button bucks and a big bodied 4 pt. Drug a estrus scent line in behind me for the last 80yards to my stand on my way in! Two more hours of daylight, hoping a shooter comes by!

    Passed on two 1.5 yr Olds this morning. Sitting the same stand tonight & used a scent drag.

    Anybody having luck using calls right now? I'm tempted to try
