    Running a little behind my norm. But I should still be in 40 minutes before sun up. It's chilly here, truck is reading 33.

    All set up in the tree by 5 this morn. Wind swirled a lil and something blew at me about 60 yards to the east. But didn't run off. I've been hearing deer all around so far this morning. Hoping something shows itself at daylight. Good luck everybody!

    Waiting on the rain to fade a bit a before I enter. Shows it slowing down between 10 and about 2, so that is when I will be on stand.

    One of those mornings where everything goes wrong. Slept in a little too long. Then tried to hunt an impossible location and wouldn't you know it, blew out some deer. Also got a concussion by hitting head off my stand.

    But I'm here! Let's see what this rain brings me.

    Just had a small buck doing a fast walk around a field edge. To far to tell what he is, looked like a 8 pt with short tines.

    I've been in the stand set up for a little while now. I bumped a doe and 2 fawns on the way in, but they ran the opposite direction from where I'm expecting deer to come from so that's a plus. I would really like to get a closer look at the buck we saw last night. I have some pics of him and haven't decided whether he's 3 or 4. Either way, he doesn't have much for a rack, just a big body and looks mature. Small rack and a tad bit heavy, hmm...hasn't stopped me before.
