    I'm out. Checked trail in front of me when I got down. Fresh tracks and poop, so good sign. Also found a big fresh scrape about 50 yards away. I'm done for the day and probably won't be out til Saturday.

    I'm fired!!!

    I just can't get that motivation I need after first firearm season. Woke up several times throughout the night, then alarm went off at 2:30, and again at 2:35 and the final time at 2:45. Rain was all but wrapped up, but I did not pay close enough attention to the actual forecast. Winds were supposed to be NW and gusty but temp was ok for it. I was wrong. High temp was actually at midnight and falling ever since. It's now 30 degrees at the property with West winds gusting to 25, wind chill of 18. That would have sliced right through me, especially in 2 piece camo with wind at my back.

    Not only that, the west wind is the worst wind possible. Thought about going for a mid morning to late afternoon sit, but after dumping a pot of coffee and making another and having a few waffles decided not to.

    Niece decided last minute she wanted to have Thanksgiving at her place, learned of that at noon yesterday.

    Throwing the insulated coveralls in the wash and I'll get out there in the morning.

    Some dumb ass dropped his phone on the way in this morning.

    This year has been weird. Not a lot of morning movement. Did catch a very quick peek at a potential shooter...

    Happy Thanksgiving all!

    Figured I'd mix it up a little bit and post some photos from the blind the last few weeks. Live from the duck blind.

    Deer hunt last night was very uneventful. Hopefully better tomorrow. Still chasing the big one! Good luck to anyone trying to make it happen today. 20211123_075818.jpeg 20211125_082644.jpeg 20211123_103035.jpeg 20211111_081951.jpeg

    My buddy just stuck a big one. Gave me the call and i had to tell him hes dragging alone. Family event at noon. Cant wait to see it. He actually acted on a plan we had been kicking around for awhile. He hung a set about 8 ft off the ground in a tree about as big around as my calf to get on where these bucks were moving. So pumped for him. Ill be executing a similar plan soon.

    What's his definition of "a big one"? Had many say that to me and it ends up being a basket 6 or something :lol:

    Was he happy with the shot?
