    I am thinking tomorrow morning I will hunt around the house to try and fill a doe tag then in the evening sitting and observing. there calling for a east wind and I only have one stand good for a east wind but havent gotten any pictures of good deer since June. Depending on what the cameras tell me I may try to set up on turkey foot over the weekend since I was able to locate him again and with the cold front coming in. Pulled these pictures on Friday before I left for Ohio.

    Always good to be seeing mature deer up and on there feet during day light. Seems like a lot of nice bucks have been hitting the ground across Michigan this year. Will be out in the mornings after some ducks starting tomorrow morning and in a stand in the evenings

    So whats the update guys? How has the movement been around you guys? Mature bucks are still only at night at the lease. Did have a encounter last weekend at 40 yards on public land but didnt have a clear shot.
