    Well fellas.. had an assload of bad luck this last week... I was told (after 13 years of hunting the same farm) that I couldn't hunt it anymore... The farmer passed and his wife allowed the grandson to dole out the property... He (the grandson) thought it was in the best interest of the property to keep it all family :( ... That is not going to bend my arrow!!! I am up at 3:30 this morning to head to public ground for opening morning... I WILL NOT MISS THIS DAY AND I WILL NOT BE DEFEATED!!!!!!!! Some deer are gonna die!!

    Good job Polecat on that doe, sucks that you couldn't get the pics. I was thinking the same thing on Sat as I hunted solo...and was trying to think how I would take a pic of myself and a deer with the phone, if I got one. Getting a pic at and by the processor or by one of the neighbors if I DIY process it was the best I could come up with...

    Good luck everybody kicking off today.

    Wind direction bad for me this morning ...stayed home. Went down this afternoon to check cams ..had a nice one 12 yards from my Turkey blind ::(
    O well, made good call on my part
    He is standing right in my wind...probably wouldn't have got a shot anyway. Tomorrow the wind is supposed to be out of the west :)

    Will he just make P&Y..I'm no good at scoring

    Nice! Remember 2 pics on the scoring thread.

    I went out yesterday, saw 5, but no shots. I had perfect wind and cold temps, the 2 does w/ 2 fawns were ~45-50 yds. I almost drew back, but thought twice. The lone deer was well over 100yds, huge, I suspect a buck...

    Guys, one other reminder, make sure you include the date, time and any other details with your pics when you post them to the scoreboard thread.

    Thanks!

    Had some good wind this week and a few deer wander through. A small 4pt yesterday and saw 5 (2 does, 2 fawns + 1 assumed large buck) on Monday. I am kicking myself for not letting arrows fly on a couple, but they would've been marginal.

    A bit of a spook yesterday am...headed into my spot, a ground sit amongst some rubble of a dry stream bed, an hour before sunrise yesterday, public land. Just got settled and quiet and I hear a bunch of something come running in, leaves crunching, in front and to the side of me. My thoughts 'Great, 30 minutes more till shooting light...' Sitting perfectly still and super quiet. All the noise stopped in the cold dark of the morning. Then as quick as it started, my hopes up, were dashed as a dog starts barking like crazy, about 7 yds from me. After fumbling for my light, I saw it was at least a pack of 3. I saw a collar on one...quickly realizing they weren't wild and hoped/figured they would move on, which they did. But then I fumed for an hour or so...nearest house was over 1/2mile away, and they weren't hound dogs...still pisses me off.

    Had a decent moring today seeing about 12 turkeys along with a small doe and small spike. The doe never came close enough for a shot though. Went out this evening and wasted my time completely. We had wind gust from 20mph-35mph all evening long. Get one more day tomm before I go back to work for 4 days. Suppose to have a good wind and be chilli again, so hopefully I can fill a tag and get us some more points.

    Sat in the stand for a few hours again, saw some turkeys and a few squirells. All these hours seeing nothing are gonna kill me.

    Well fellas actually got to go out this evening. Got in the stand and the wind decided to do a switcha roo on me. I thought about staying just to see if I could get a doe come out into the field when I got a text. The worst kind too. My cousin was sitting on the other side of the farm and sent me a pic of one of our big boys. At first I thought he had shot it. Then I found out the was walking down to his stand and it was less than 5 yards from his stand laying there dead. Between that and the wind I was done for the night. As far as we could tell he had not been shot. He even looked healthy. So we aren't really sure what he died from. By the looks of it he had only been there about a day tops. Just sucks scouting all summer putting out cameras and doing everything right and it comes to this. Hopefully the other 3 on that farm are still around.
