    Settled in. Last day. Didnt bump anything on the way in. As im typing this i hear a buck in the clearcut making a rub. Yikes! Trust the forecast. Thermals will mess with you until the sun hits the valley floor. Then it should switch. I have also found when hunting valleys the wind will backdraft into the leeward side of the hill. Meaning if thete is a west wind on the leeward side it most likely will be blowing east. Like water flowing over a rock. When hunting along a river or fast moving stream i notice the moving water creates a slight wind as well. I trust the weatherman with wind and then play my areas accordingly. Is it light yet? Im rambling

    Just pulled into the field. 40 yards in front of my car a nice buck breeding a doe. Did not care in the slightest I was there. Tried to get a pick but they were at the edge of my headlights. So no such luck.

    Well I drank the kool-aid and picked up my shotgun this morning. My rutcation ends Sunday and I need to bring some meat home. So I have my Savage 220 with me in hopes s doe will show herself on this 31 degree morning.

    Last day. Haven't hunted this stand for two weeks and it's close to a property that doesn't get hunting pressure. Fingers crossed.

    Made it to the tree stand for my first morning sit of the season. Coldest morning we've had, upper 30's and a slight N breeze. Should be a great morning to rattle and call after first light. Good luck out there everybody! God is good!!

    Joe and Adam go get em today fellas. Y'all have been hunting hard and today is the day!!
