    I sat out on Sat.

    I've mapped a long set of scrapes that run nearly 1 mile. Did a ground set in a spot I (thought I) had good wind, but a morning thermal betrayed me. I never got a good look at him, but I heard him working some trees then blowing up the place before bolting.

    I'm embarrassed, pissed and frustrated.

    Got the flu or food poisoning Friday, so I was out of commission until today. Plans to hunt second gun season in Illinois. Looking forward to not competing with gunners after the weekend, though.

    I got out this weekend but it was with the rifle and shotgun. Saturday was pretty easy. Had 5 does come in at first light and when the lead doe started the stomping and head bob game, I put an end to the game. I was pretty fortunate and very excited about the stag I took on Sunday. It was an all day hunt on Sunday in the rain and cold but paid off. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. IMG_20191201_214215979.jpeg IMG_20191201_175306938.jpeg IMG_20191130_102719083_HDR.jpeg

    17th of January.
    Sat this morning, kinda crazy. Was 54 with rain off and on. Tomorrow it’s supposed to be 23 and 12 mph wind out of the west. First day to try out the Sitka Fanatic bids & jacket.

    Sat out Sat.
    Saw 4 does, chased by dogs, has my rifle misfire at 10 yds... Wish I had the bow instead would've been a rare occasion I would've been comfortable with a head on shot at a deer.

    Once I strategized of use the pistol instead of I had another shot, about 15-20 minutes later, i spooked the buck I was after.

    Ah well, I've got him pretty well figured out, if he lives another week on public land. Will be back with the stand and bow next week.
