    I'm out with James on this fine VT youth weekend. He opted to stay on the property and hunt one of the food plots. He also opted to bring his crossbow. Several day light photos of deer on their feet here.

    I buy them by the case as well

    I like how the toe warmers shows them on the sole of the boot not a sock, wonder how many people misuse them as a result :lol:

    Grunted a few more times bit sounded farther away. More like a growl or roar. I at least know there is a big one moving around in here.

    I was actually thinking of a line from a different movie. I'm surprised no one recognized the reference. "Do you see the light?!?"

    Sitting on the ground tonight in a pine thicket that is used as a travel corridor from bedding to the ag fields. I shot a buck in this spot about 3 years ago. We'll see what happens.

    Checking in from the tree. Neighbor got the rest of our field cut and now he’s working on the outside edges of his 40 yards next to me. Took a different way in to check a cam and found 7-10 beds in the snow behind me about 60-80 yards.

    Should be interesting with the combine going right next to me.

    So guys I have a blistering headach so didn't read... Congrats to anyone successful. The cold front is now here and I found out this a.m. That the big boys are on cams in the neighbors bedding. Just as I thought. Only her son is hunting there.
    To be honest I have lost any desire to go out at the moment..I wait all year to hit that swamp bedding just one or two times and it's been destroyed.

    Clarify to anyone not seeing the trespassing post. I'm talking my bedding.

    Has anyone had issues with the straps of their lone wolf/XOP creaking really bad? Didn’t really have an issue until today. Not sure if it’s from the cold or what.

    So has anyone here watched a show on YouTube called "Seek One?" It's some guys from Atlanta that go around gaining permission to hunt suburban neighborhood. Sometimes they are practically in the owners back yards when they shoot these deer. I mean they have killed some 170 and 180s bucks right below people's houses. I've also seen them hunt other urban areas, such as Nashville and Louisville. If anyone here has seen it, do you think it's legit?
