    Hey guys, sorry had a busy day yesterday. Twp pics are posted in the scorecard...we should be on the board when Fitz updates next!

    So my camera man slept in, and told me he wasn't coming at 515. Didn't see that til I was almost to the property, or I would have grabbed my video camera...kinda bummed we missed out on filming any of this but oh well. There are more deer. and I have more tags.

    I sat from 615 til 8:15 before the first lone doe came in. It was so thick, I didn't see here til she was in range. She comes straight downwind of me to an apple tree, and slightly smells me. I have scentlok and take scent seriously and all that stuff, but a mature doe is not dumb... So she pegs me when I stand up, and turns and runs back where she came from. I draw and bleat at her to stop, and she stops at 30 yards in the thicket she came from....no shot. I stayed drawn, and she eventually turned and started running back towards the apple tree/past me trying to get by now. I stopped her at 25 and double lung/liver shot her(doe on right). She was quartering away, and I saw the nocturnal fly through her and continue past into the ground...she bounds off quietly, and I never heard a sound after that. I knew I hit her good tho, so I wasn't worried.

    I decided to give her an hour, while trying to wake up my camera man to come film the recovery and help drag..(he owes me a drag). Bout half hour later another comes in to the apple tree, but did not smell me. She came right to 10 yards, and presented me with a harder quartering away shot. I put it behind the ribcage and it came out in her shoulder as you can see(doe on left). She bolted out of there and disappeared. I heard some crashing so I figured she went down. Figured it was at least lungs, maybe heart.

    A good buddy of mine showed up, and we tracked the early doe first...turns out she ran about 50 yards and that's where we found her dead. We drug her out and started on the next. Found this one about the same distance dead. Drug her out as well.

    All around it was a great morning, as I have never doubled up before. I was not impressed with the amount of blood and hole size of the T3s, but it was enough and the deer both died quick...so no complaints about the T3s.

    Heading over to my buddies where they are hanging tonight, to butcher them up!!!

    Alright guys, who's next??

    What do you think?

    I don't know what to make of this. My camera is about 10' up a tree pointing at the ground. The next picture is a minute later and there's nothing there?

    I'm guessing something climbed up or down the tree and got close enough to throw an IR reflection back into the camera.

    That's a better explanation than my UFO and the beam of light just abducted the 12 pt buck that was walking down the trail thought... Haha

    Well I went out last night and had one heck of a start to the season. All together I saw 3 buck and 2 doe. However the first buck I saw was a respectable 120-130 but the last one I saw was an absolute stud. This guy is mature and no doubt #1 on the hit list at this time. I'm hoping to get some pictures of him within the next week or two. He came out with about 30 minutes of daylight left upwind of me so up to this point he still has no clue. The hunt is officially on!!!

    Well we're going to find out shortly. That was my first time out so I have no pattern to speak of yet. The cameras just went up on Sunday so hopefully by this weekend I'll have a little more information to go off of. There's multiple stands to sit so with any luck we'll figure it out.
