It started today and I barely got into the woods before first light. With everything still greened up it’s hard to see very far which I think is good being I could hear the deer coming for awhile before seeing them. First in was a doe with twin fawns, she spotted me and did a very slow walk around the tree I was in, the fawns just kept eating. Then I heard running a one deer was chasing another behind me to my right then I saw a big doe come over the hill and two yearlings walked right under my stand but both are does. A big deer comes down the hill about 60-70 yards out and I can’t see it’s head clearly but it does an about face and heads back up the hill, soon I see another deer feeding out front of me and as I’m watching it the sky opens up and rain is coming down. I’m sure I seen at least 10 deer in an hour, with a big pile of buck crap under the stand it’s just a matter of time before I see him. Right now I got to decide if I should order two new trail cams as all of mine have died.September 20, 2013 at 9:55 am #122771FNW StaffKeymaster
I think our cam is on its way out too. Deer are moving big time up here too. Bucks are already battling it out as witnessed yesterday.September 21, 2013 at 1:07 pm #122770
Up at 4 AM this morning and stepped outside where it sounded like rain falling, turned out to be extremely heavy dew due to fog which formed over night. I headed into woods without my bow taking just my GoPro camera hoping for some close up video. With the full moon the last few nights I only seen two fawns running up the hill and later a doe and single fawn come down about 50 yards out, I tried filming some but don’t know yet how it turned out. Oh one other thing I broke down and ordered two new trailcams, should be here by the end of next week.September 30, 2013 at 4:45 pm #122769
When I went to work Friday evening between the back yard and the top of the hill I counted 11 does and fawns, so I told the wife yesterday that we have too many in the area and I plan on shooting one or two if I get a shot. Of course in two and a half hours this morning of sitting in my stand I didn’t see a thing, not even a tree rat. The temp in in the 70’s right now so I think no evening hunting will be going on but will head out tomorrow morning again.October 2, 2013 at 11:51 am #122768
Out yesterday morning and the woods were pretty quite, I heard a squirrel and hawk scolding each other and a fox barking after first light. I was sitting there for an hour and a half and my camera beeped letting me know the battery had died when just behind me a deer started stomping it’s foot because of the noise it just heard. I didn’t move as the deer stomped and stomped, after a few minutes I looked to my left and saw it standing in the brush about 50 yards away, it flicked it’s tail a few times as it walked out of sight I’m not sure what it was but it was a good size deer.October 3, 2013 at 8:48 am #122767FNW StaffKeymaster
Too damn hot here in the afternoons here. I told Wyatt we don’t need anymore deer right now. Taking a few days offOctober 7, 2013 at 6:02 pm #122766
Went fishing this morning and planned to deer hunt this afternoon but storms are headed this way with 50 MPH winds. Here the view from my stand out back, a doe came down the hill but it was so thick where she was you can’t see her in the video.
