    4 wheelers in the truck, waiting until trick or treaters have moved on before tossing clothes and xbow in the truck. I don't trust humans anymore.

    Gotta plan my morning and get alarms set accordingly. Broadheads are confirmed, all systems go.

    First rutting behavior spotted tonight. Doe and fawn came out of our woods, fawn had her tail in the air, about 2 minutes later a smaller 6 point came out. Started dogging the doe until they went back into the trees. Couldn't see anything in there but they were in there chasing hard for a good 30 minutes.

    About 15 minutes later 2 small bucks came out into our beans and were on a mission. Not sure where they were going, but they were definiteley on a mission.

    It's about to get fun!

    Let’s both kill a buck tomorrow ok? Cool
    I realized the spot I’m going to has a creek that might be raging, I have to cross it.
    It’s imperative that I go to this spot, been planning it all week!
    I couldn’t find anywhere that sold waders or hip boots so I’m gonna use two garbage bags and hope for the best :biggrin:

    Would love to kill a buck tomorrow, but not counting on it. Never been this cold this early in the rut since I have been hunting, so who knows.

    I do know a doe is still on the menu should it present itself. Unless a acruising buck changes my mind :lol:

    Not a freaking chance in November, the problem will be 10 tips to actually fall asleep at a decent time before a rut hunt :lol:

    I got some Z-quill ready. Watch some of this 9'ers game and hit the sack

    Hey CLS ....
    You may want to bring some sort of dry seat cushion
    I imagine what’s there is wet from snow

    That’s what I got, with the drawstrings.
    Redneck waders, LoL.
    I’m hoping I don’t need them, last time I was here the creek was dry. But it’s been raining like crazy so I have no idea what to expect

    Saturday I'm hitting the new spot. High hopes. I'm convinced that's where the monster is bedding. He's the only guy missing so far and that's the furthest point away from where I can get to and have cameras.

    It’s rained for the last 30+hours and is called to stop at 4am and at 8am it will be 28*. Right now I have the 6th-11th off but after I have to call in sick in the morning I will have the 6th-10th off. I feel a little cold coming on through this all day sit tomorrow and I might have to call in sick on Monday too.
