    Saw just a small one this morning. My son filled his buck tag this evening. Took a tall racked 8. Think he's a 3 year old, maybe 2. Probably goes about 110" got pic with the 2 grandsons. 20191106_185436.jpg

    Well here we go, rutcation starts in the A.M. I hope the cold weather moving in helps kick the rut off and the big boys moving.

    Good luck to everyone hitting the woods this weekend. I’m trying my best to get a buck on the ground

    Yesterday afternoon hunt saw 7 doe with 2 in range, let them walk. Saw the basket 8 at 21 yards, thinking he is three, small bodied buck. Maybe my hunting partner will get a shot at him, he needs to go. Struggling with my hip hurting again, getting old is not fun !!!

    This morning was good, saw one of my shooters pushing a doe so that tells me the cold front may have helped kick off the full rut. Had a big 6 within 30 yards but holding off. Going to sit a tent this evening and give my hip a rest from climbing, SE wind not the greatest but I got the Ozonics that should help.

    I didn’t see anything this morning. Can’t hunt this evening. I’m not sure where I’m hunting tomorrow yet

    I hunted yesterday saw 4 deer, and the only one in range was a 4 point...... I was really hoping it was a doe so I could let one fly, but no does in range. This morning I was out and just had a doe cut passed me at about 50 yards, Most likely it was a fawn from this year it was small. I'll be hunting tomorrow as much as I can. Maybe tonight if my Wife get home in time for get out, even if it's for an hour i'm going out. Goodluck everyone!

    I didn’t do much better, had a spike right by the stand for 45 minutes, he was practically begging me to shoot him and saw a small 4 pt (as in small compared to your average 4 pointer, so basically a fawn with exceptional antlers) but he never came closer than 75 yds.

    Also, I need some scent control advice ASAP before I head out for the afternoon hunt. Is anybody familiar with smoking your clothes?

    I moved a stand after I climbed down this morning since I didn’t see **** and that stand is the only stand I have that works with today’s wind direction (we hardly ever get wind out of the northeast). I am an idiot and decided to do it with the only set of hunting clothes I’ve got with me and I worked up one hell of a sweat. I’ve heard lots of people talk about smoking your clothes and that it works but never done it myself and it’s kind of my only option.

    I know this is probably a stupid question but is it as simple as hanging them downwind from a campfire so the smoke blows on them for a while or is there more to it?

    Should I add a bunch of green **** to get it extra Smokey or is regular campfire all I need?

    Also, what about smoking your body, does that work too? The propane ran out on my portable shower out here this morning and I’ll be damned if I’m going to take a shower in 35 degree water when it’s 40 outside.

    Small bucks moving and harassing doe last night. Saw an old and I mean old buck, saggy skin, grey face top to bottom of face. Had just a spike on each side about 18 inches long that curled back like a Ram. If I see him I am killing him, he is cool.)))) Had a basket 8 and a bigger 6 right under stand.

    Heading out soon for the afternoon.
