I'm super pumped to finally get out to start my 2015 season. I'm not sure if I'll shoot a doe at first sight, This spot is a safe haven for does, as it's on top of a hill. to the north of me is all saplings (2 to 3 in circumference), to the east is half field and half pasture grass. then to the west of me is all flat bottom land (marsh style). Finally, to the south of me is more bottum land, but so thick with undergrowth one can barely walk through it. Now I normally don't hunt this spot until shotgun season, as I allow my co-hunter to sit here. he only gets to hunt 1 or 2 days a year. He has always shot does on his first sit. This year he will sit there on Saturday, and I'll sit north of him at the edge of property where the saplings end about 15 yard prior to a galley and another field edge. I've had this stand there for 2 years and have never hunted it. I'm going to sit in it on Saturday (I think). I've been sitting at work this morning watching Bowhunt or die and writing down my packing list for tomorrow. the first day out is always the best and worst day for me. I bring to many things and forget to many things. once arriving at the property I always take too much time getting dressed and everything in order for my long and tasking walk through this swamp like property carrying my Muddy stand with my climbing sticks, my back pack, and my bow. I normally dress as lite as possible into the woods then dress after I'm in stand. Last year I was late getting in and setting up. I could hear creatures walking around me as I was climbing the tree. I was snorted 3 times before I ever got into my stand. I could barely make out a large mass under my stand, but the sniffing I could hear perfectly, and again followed by more snorting. it wasn't until day light when I could see the white of tails every time the wind shifted to the west. I soon gave up any urge to sit all day for a buck and settled for a doe. Hopefully, this years sit will be more productive and much more fruitful.
