    Well guys, with 4 days left of bow season and zero shooters on camera I didn't have high hopes. Then this guy from who no where's decided to chase a doe right by me! IMG_20181111_155435892.jpg IMG_20181111_155031440.jpg

    Well nothing doing for me. Today was the last day and I will not be going out tonight. I am now fully focused on setting up for the late season, its about 6 weeks away. I should have enough time to scout and move treestands where I want. I stumbled across a pretty heavily used deer trail while hunting this last week. I have deer moving through daily, only problem is its in the middle of a goldenrod field. there are few trees to hang a stand. I might have to set up a makeshift ground blind.

    This years rifle season will have to double as a late scouting session.

    Well fellas, it’s not going to score big, but I’m not the kinda guy to get hung up on that. He’s a cool deer with double split brows and I put a damn good shot on him at 43 yards. Won’t win us the contest but I’m one happy fella since it’s only the second deer I’ve had in range all year! IMG_1197.JPG IMG_1198.JPG

    Wow, that's huge for where I hunt! Congrats on an awesome buck, still hoping I can contribute something this year. Keep having close calls but still have not gotten a shot off.

    Anybody still bow hunting? I have seen a lot of chasing this week. looks like those early girls that didn't get bred are swingin back into estrous. If you guys get the chance this weekend inside the thick brush on the downwind side of food sources should be great in evenings! Good luck to anyone out there still trying to fling arrows!
