    Saw one doe this morning that got spooked by a couple of coyotes cruising through. Saw a small buck this evening but he never got into range, and saw another deer moving through thick cover. All in all a decent day.

    Well took the weekend to spend some time with the wife but I'm back in the trees today lookin for some meat now that I'm contested out. Wish the weather would cooperate a little better, tomorrow the high is 79°... but Wednesday's gonna bring a drop and some rain, Thursday should be a real good morning for some action. Good luck to everyone!

    We’ve got a 30 degree temp drop on tap for tomorrow. Unfortunately work calls, but I’ll be in the woods for the next two Thursday - Sunday.

    Amazing hunt tonight.. Passed on 5 bucks 2 were chasing a doe. Still waiting on something bigger. I'll be out tomorrow evening again, hoping to close the deal. Awesome job team!

    I wish we had that here - been in the mid-high 70's for the entire rut over here. And winds out of the east every day, which is extremely rare here in the fall/winter unless it is snowing. I only have one spot I can really hunt with winds out of the east and its an early season stand on a field edge and not very good for the rut, plus its the stand that the damn stray dog spent a week harassing deer at. Second year in a row that we have gotten a warm spell that lasted the whole rut. I am beyond frustrated right now. It sucks sitting in the stand and sweating your ass off in November... Plus the weather means that the grass is growing and all the neighbors are mowing **** non-stop so cant even enjoy being out in the woods since all you can hear are motherf**king lawnmowers and brush hogs going in every direction.

    At least we got rain today to quiet down the leaves. That opens up two other potential stands for these winds that I can only get into stealthily if the leaves are wet. Neither of them is optimal for an eastern wind but if the wind turns just a tad to the north or south then I might be able to get away with it in one of those. That or I might just ditch stand hunting altogether and sneak in on foot for some still hunting while the leaves are wet and quiet.

    Saw a nice 8 this morning. He came in to 20 and pegged me. No shot. That was it for me today.

    Finally got some slightly cooler weather. Still not really cold, but 60’s is a lot better than 80’s. Had A lot of movement this morning but nothing ever came into bow range. Grabbing a bite to eat now and heading back out for the afternoon. Going to take my bow and rifle with me. Still planning on bow hunting, but if a nice buck happens to pass by and won’t come into bow range the I will probably end up sending some lead in his direction instead. We get two antlered tags so even if I murk one with the rifle tonight I’ll still have another to use for the contest.

    Had 4 straight days in a park. Saw some deer but no shots taken. Have the next three days of work, then off again to hunt Thursday through Sunday in the park again.

    Guy gave me some solid intel on a good spot for this coming weekend so I plan to check that out on Wednesday during stand setup.

    Didn’t see any deer this morning, but I harvested a bigass squirrel using the Texas Heart Shot technique from 85yds right before I climbed down. I only managed to recover the back legs and the tail though. I guess the front half still had enough life in it to crawl off and there wasn’t a blood trail to follow. Kind of surprised about that as I had always figured that a 300 win mag would’ve been enough to drop a squirrel right in its tracks. I suppose that squirrel was just a lot tougher than he looked.

    I’m back at it for the next 4 days. Saw a doe already this morning, and bumped a good buck when setting up yesterday.

    Spent the last two Thu-Sun on stand without much success. Saw some deer the first weekend, and this past was a total dud! I won’t be back out until after thanksgiving now. Keep at it everyone!

    I took this big ole doe Thanksgiving at 9:30am .. after the fall I didn’t think I’d even get a chance to hunt this year.... feeling very blessed for this kill.

    How about everyone else? How was your Thanksgiving?
