    I'm still using unscented soap and deodorant so my season isn't over yet. Plus I left my 4 wheeler at the hunting property as leverage that I have to go one more time regardless. Been a long time since I have hunted December/January

    Hunted today in the snow. Nice going in without a headlight or anything. Nada, but not surprising with the wind and precip.

    Hey guys just checking in. Haven't been able to do much lately, been dealing with some family stuff, grandpa's not been doin so great. But it's finally starting to calm down so hoping to get back out this weekend during shotgun. Probably take bow most the time.

    But good luck and just figured peek in so you guys didn't think bailed. Ha.

    Hoping to get out this Saturday and Sunday. There are some extended season areas until the 31st so I may get out later too.

    Went out Saturday. Saw one antlerless deer and tried to put a stalk on it, but the snow was too noisy. Stopped and checked one of my cameras only to find that someone had taken the SD card .

    Unless something special occurs with the weather next weekend I have sat my final sit of the season.

    Not having any food sources available it's hard to justify late season hunting where I hunt.

    I turned down so many shots on does early on thinking I could take one after a buck. Bit me in the arse again.

    In no way can I call my season a failure, shooting my best buck, but I failed myself on packing the freezer.

    I'll have a 3 day weekend next week for season close, so who knows.
