    Going to hunt our place this morning. Bur Oaks are dropping acorns. Coolest morning so far this season.

    I'm with ya on that also. One of the guys in our group shot a nice doe a few years ago. It was a wooly a$$ place. We finally found what was left of her a day later. No where near where we thought she was. Turns out our issue was Bobcats.
    I have the yote issue at my in-laws place. It is right in town. I can't set in the deck with my rifle like I can at our place.
    I know losing one sucks Wesley. Sorry.

    Thanks! I really like the shacket. I was torn between it and just getting a Stratus Vest, but I heard good things about this, and I feel like is a bit warmer to me.

    All set up in Ohio. Still waiting to see a deer of any kind while in my stand. Jumped one on my way in though so I know there is at least one here.

    30 degrees and I'm staying home. Nothing to do. Decided to hold off on this mornings hunt. The only good stand I have for these winds is on the corner of a bean field. The only way in is to walk the edge. No way am I about to blow the deer out of there this morning, this early in the season.

    I know that feeling all to well.


    As for me it's 37 degrees out, dead still, quiet, and just perfect big buck weather.......and I have yet to see a deer.

    Last night I saw just 2 does. Slow start to the year though. I have yet to see a buck on hoof.

    Man I've been in your shoes too many times. Once I shot a doe and tracked her all the way to my front yard and it simply stopped there.

    Just got back in. Pheasant season started today, so at sunrise about 6 cars pulled in to the WMA I was on. I was set up in a strategic location, and they did push a pretty nice muley past me. Of course I only have an antlerless white tail tag.
