    OK seeing as I always miss These late October cold fronts. Can someone help me understand this LOL. When I was leaving the house the weatherman said the cold front is coming through and the temperatures will really start to drop around one or two in the afternoon. I'm almost at my hunting land now, this one the deer move right before the front? Or hours waybefore the front?

    My daughter didn't want to get up so I am sitting with my son on a freshly picked corn field.

    Hoping to show her the importance of getting out of bed during hunting season :)

    I'm in 5-D (Montco & Delco). With this wind, I didn't go out this morning, but I'll be heading in to check cams. The wind should make it a low impact entry. I'm hunting all next week.

    First time in this spot. 37 degrees no wind. Another hunter is coughing and hacking and choking on something. And he couldn't find his stand this AM. He got out his flashlight and shined it around and up in all the trees.

    Should be a productive morning. BHOD

    Uh I'm sick to my stomach, made a great shot but I barely got any penetration, 7 inches maybe no blood yet I only looked about 20 yards back up in the stand going to let her sit for awhile, I know the shot was good it went in right behind the shoulder, worst feeling ever now, in for a long wait and then track, she's gotta be down though
