    It’s like a monsoon here in Wisconsin. A lot of rain which will be followed by wind I’m guessing. The temperatures are perfect. Next week will be a great week, I’m off from the 28th to the 11th, but I’m hoping to go back sooner.

    I'm not hunting today, but I'm pulling all my cards.I'm Freshening up the corn piles, got some tree trimming at one site that needs done, and putting up a scrape dripper and setting a cam on it. Hoping to see some daytime action on that scrape. Tomorrow is going to be a 30 degree drop in daytime highs. I will for sure be in a srand tomorrow evening. Just have to figure out which one and if I'm waiting for a buck or if another doe is on the table as well.

    I'll probably get out this afternoon. A straight north wind isn't an easy one for me here, but I do have a couple decent spots that'll work. An update on the farm that I have permission on: Owner has refused treatment for his late stage cancer and has begun a pretty bad downward spiral. I haven't pressed about coming out to hunt and probably won't for some time. I have no idea how that will turn out, but I wish that man the best. What a terrible disease...

    Got 5 stand sites freshened up with corn, pulled 3 cards, got mock scrape made, got branches trimmed. Gotta hit one more stand site with corn and pull that card and I'll probably do that Sunday or Monday. Hunting tomorrow evening. Here are some pics of today's work. The picture I circled is where twice in past years I've had a giant standing there but I couldn't shoot cause it wasn't trimmed up good. Always said I was going to and I finally got it done. Included pics of the mock scrape, stand to the scrape and scrape to the stand. Then I saw a monstrous new rub in the area today that I just noticed. I've got stands a on 2 sides of this rub, the one I circled cause it's hard to see. 20201023_153907.jpg 20201023_150029.jpg 20201023_150056.jpg 20201023_150131.jpg 20201023_150958.jpg 20201023_151030.jpg 20201023_154841.jpg

    So who's all hunting tonight, Saturday/Sunday? I can't wait to be on the stand. It's going to be 30 degrees colder tomorrow evening than it is this evening. I think some deer are going to hit the ground this weekend!!!!!

    Sure feels right. Worried about that buck I shot being "the buck" on this property. I did find out my buddy is moving his camper to the new farm Sunday so I can stay there and hunt next week, so I'm pretty excited about that.

    I was up...didn't see a single deer. It sure was chilly out there and I thought for sure I'd see some move by. Negative.

    I can't believe with the way the weather was I didn't see any tonight. Obviously I guessed the wrong stand cause I know they were on the move.

    Good luck on Kentucky Public. I’ve been trying to stay out of my good spot as the big boys are mainly nocturnal right now but man it’s hard. I’ve had some nice 8s coming in with about an hour of daylight left on camera.

    This deer is the specific deer haunting me tho and the one I want to take. He’s elusive and pretty nocturnal right now. He has a brother that’s smaller that comes through frequently in the evenings I’m afraid I’m going to shoot and I want to let him grow another year.

    This deer is giving me sleepless nights man. Would be the biggest deer me or my dad have ever taken.
