    And one more thing...


    To top it off I had to put up with morons on the highway that was untreated and snow/slush covered.

    The only thing keeping me somewhat sane was being passed in the left lane by some yahoo in an Expedition doing 75 with FL license plates. I spent the next 50 minutes scanning the ditches waiting to see him, almost bypassed my exit until I did, but need the gas for hunting tomorrow.

    Anyone can do 75 on snow covered roads and maintain control, now, when that person doing 55 loses control and there's a tow truck and 2 state troopers assisting them, lets see your dumb ass stop that 7300 pound behemoth.

    One more spike just came thru. I keep getting the urge to get down and move. But I'm on a island and can see the water on both sides. It's just so thick!

    Well I am back home after getting my wife’s car towed to the shop. Quick change and I am off to get kids from school. Rain has stop but the wind has really picked being in a tree would not have been safe or fun today. Good luck, somebody kill something.

    Wind is no cooperating. It's been out of the SE which is good and as it was supposed to be this afternoon. But then it shifted to out of the NW and now out of the W which is not so good.

    On the bright side, its cooling off and the shadows are starting to cast on the bedding area.

    Maybe the deer like the smell of chocolate chip.

    I'm back in dead quiet here. Very little wind about 38 degrees storm warning for tonight until 6am.3 to 5 inches. Might miss the morning hunt if kids have a school delay. Hopefully I can kill tonight and not worry about the delay. Antler's are coming out after the train goes by. Good luck

    He was standing there at 50 yards and just bedded down. He's behind a log and I can see him. Hopefully another small buck come by and gets him up and chased him. This is crazy!

    The tree I'm in, he just walked past it twice in the last hour. I just need him to do it again! I believe there is a doe in here with him. So it may take a little help from her.

    Yes I did. I don't think I ever posted it. I don't know if I have enough service here to post pics, so it might be later.

    Story of my season buck comes flying in after a doe about 60 yds away. Guess I'm moving the climber more to where they were that's twice now I've seen them travel through there. Sounds like nothing pans out tonight or tomorrow I'll be there Thursday all day
