    Finally a cool morning. We have a hockey game outside this morning. Plan on being in the blind this afternoon. Wind is supposed to die down as the day goes along!!
    Good Luck, everyone!!

    Gonna brave the wind this morning. I'm not sure I have a great spot for West winds but I have one that will work i think.

    I had a dream last night that I was lost, looking for more milk weed in a field...the struggle is real.

    Winds woke me twice last night. This came through 6 hours early. Alarm went off and it was turned off and I went back to sleep. Now it's even worse. Only 5 days left but not today this is a good reminder why.

    Hhhmm......pics won't come up...so my flattened ground blind....
    Stay safe and successful guys

    Two different weather channels say NE wind, It couldn’t be more south. Which is fine.

    That's what happens to people that stay in the Mark Twain Forest for a period of time.

    Absolutely a beautiful morning! No deer seen yet. Did have one run off in the dark while I was setting up.

    Decided to try something out of the norm for me. I'm on top of a ridge, just off the side of it. Great view and have a place were it will pinch down any movement from bedding to bedding. I'm thinking 8 - 9:30 for any movement.

    Well, good news is I found my doe.
    Image1605443196.925182.jpg

    That’s the entrance wound. It’s not as far back as I was expecting. She must have been slight quartering towards or something.

    She made me pay for shooting her, by running through a neighbors yard and bedding down there as a bunch of kids look on, horrified. She got the last laugh lol!

    Times like this...wish I didnt live in the middle of the woods. Not just sound of wind through trees, trees crashing into each other but a deep rumbling "vortex sound " in the back ground...a little eery....

    For those of you interested,
    Image1605445406.675009.jpg

    I did actually hit her liver.

    I shot her at 9am, starting tracking at 2:30. Bumped her out of her bed at 3:15 roughly. That’s 6 hours of time to expire and she was still able to get up and run several hundred yards. I’m kind of amazed.
