    I had 99% of my full range of motion is why they didn't have me do therapy. Some stretchy bands at home was all I was given to do.

    I have sat back and watched all the young bulls sprint up the hill to the herd, this old bull is walking today.

    I finally saw something on stand! I ended up having to go do an emergency locate, so I figured I was already set up so sit til 7:30. I sat there for 2 hours without a peep. I lower my pack and bow at 7:35, unhook my safety harness, and my tree strap and hear steps. A minute after I let my bow down, a line of 6 or 7 does come by at 20 yards! I just stood there kind of hugging the tree, because I didn’t want to get busted. I was about to step down to the first stick when I heard them. I let them be, and finally got down without getting busted. I moved to this placement last year due to seeing this same situation play out. Hope they follow a routine tomorrow!

    Haven’t seen anything in a while but a hawk that swooped in and landed on a branch 20 yards or so away.

    I’m going to give it at least another half hour before I get down to go to the other spot.

    Pouring rain her in VT today, soooo I won't be out. Good luck everyone this evening. Tomorrow morning will be 37 and the rain is supposed to let up by 0800. I'll probably go out at 0700, get a little wet and see if the deer get on their feet as the rain is letting up. Soccer practice tomorrow afternoon, I may get out the last 1.5hrs.

    Just had a single doe walk in to 35 yards. I almost took the shot but she looked like a little one and I don’t want to shoot another fawn.

    Sure was a pretty shot though.

    I guess I’ll give this spot another hour.

    The fox showed up again. Got a little adrenaline jolt out of the sudden movement, so that’s a plus.

    I should have climbed down earlier. I was half way down and a doe walked in and bedded 50 yards away.

    No way do I get the rest of the way down without her seeing me.

    If I had the muzzleloader I’d put her to sleep. I almost have a bow shot but she’s quartering to me. Besides, there are two tiny twigs about in the path I think the arrow would take. IMG_1457.jpg

    I guess I’ll try to get the one grunt call I have with me out and see if I can coax it into getting up and moving.

    Nope. Well, it’s just one doe. Guess she’ll get to see where I am. I don’t want to stay here the rest of the day.

    D11ACF00-25AE-48AE-89C8-A2517B92D51E.png Good luck everyone. I’m set up next to a corn field, down wind of a really fresh scrape and stomach high rubs, just past a saddle, in oaks. Probably only night time stuff but I put a cam on the scrape to see what’s going on

    I almost got her. Got to the ground and out of my stand behind some leaves.

    Took my pack off, nocked an arrow and got to 32 yards. I needed lean out from behind the tree so I drew and leaned. I never even got to get the pin in the peep. She bolted.

    That was exciting.
