    Good luck! It's shaping up to be a great evening. I'll be sitting at Red Robin, eating a burger, and dying a little bit on the inside as the sun sets tonight.

    It's time to start stacking them up TEAM! Not everyone has to kill a giant, but everyone has to kill if we want a shot a de-throning Team 12. Check in if it has been a while since you posted!

    Didn't see anything last night. Good luck @Justin and all others out this morning. This flipping wind switch is not good for my stands.

    This weather is not cooperating. South winds and upper 50's, low 60's all weekend. Come on!

    I'm not too concerned about the weather or temps - when the time is right, it's right. The bucks will still be on the move.

    It was a slow morning for me - just a doe and a fawn. Working for a couple of hours and then headed out for the afternoon. Going to run-and-gun in the saddle since I don't have jack squat setup for an ESE wind. :mad:

    Short sit behind the house tonight, got in a little late. Corn is still not cut... Sighs.... Had an ESE wind tonight. Not favorable for me but I tried it anyway. I saw 7 deer in total. 1 shooter at 250 yards. I bounced a little early. Must have got out clean because I had a doe and a 2 year old buck in front of my stand no less then 15 min after I left. Figures.... I had another shooter buck in front of the stand about 45 min after legal.

    Pretty slow night for me - just one small buck out cruising. I hunted the South side of the farm last night, and my buddy hunted the North side. He saw 4 bucks cruising - all 1 and 2-year-olds. One of our shooters split the difference between us and passed one of my cell cameras shortly before dark. Figures.

    Taking my son hunting tonight and tomorrow morning so I won't be back out for myself until Sat afternoon.

    Well, my 18 month old daughter got RSV real bad and ended up in the hospital. She is home now and doing much better. I won’t be making my Oak Ridge hunt now however since I’m going to be missing the scout day tomorrow. I will be turning back towards old faithful behind my house next week for a doe and another buck. Good luck everyone! We need to start racking up some points.

    I tried hunting this spot on a just off wind that I normally don't hunt it on. I did end up seeing 2 bucks and 5 does but no shooters.

    I was out a few times this week. The deer are definitely moving more in PA. Getting more daylight activity on camera too. Wednesday night I had a spike bumping some does in a field and Thursday night I had a small 8 point bumping some does. Scrapes really opened up this week too. Unfortunately my goal of killing a doe early didn't pan out.. I only ended up with 8 sits so far this season and only 2 of those I really focused on trying to kill a doe. I won't be back in the stand again until 11-1 or 11-2. I work this weekend, trick or treat with the fam 10-31 and then I'll hopefully be leaving for Iowa after we enjoy some candy and get the kids to bed. I hope to make it to Iowa with enough time on 11-1 to do a quick hang and hunt.. if nothing else, at least scout and get a stand up for the morning of 11-2. Good luck everyone!!

    I left woods around noon. Saw a decent 8 point around 8:40 am and nothing after that. He was about 20 yards away in some really thick stuff. He ended up walking away from me instead of in front of me. Tried a couple grunts when he was walking away but he was not interested. Going to friends house tonight for fall party. Took Tuesday off work so I’ll will be hunting then. Supposed to be warm again but I may still try and all day sit. We will see
