    Have not seen a deer yet. Moved to the back side of the farm now. And it's raining a little.

    Not long after posting saw a decent 8 that looked like he had took a beating and wouldn't stop for nothing. This was after 11. I gotta go but for those sitting in midday might be good.

    Saw 25 yesterday including 4 bucks. Biggest was an 8pt. Today much slower. Had one deer under me at the break of day and passed on a nice 10pt with a doe at about 11am. Hope I don't regret not taking that 10pt but after a buck I been watching for 3yrs.

    This is a discussion for another thread, so I'll be short. There's no point in us getting into a whizzing contest over a piece of equipment. I regret even bringing it up now. I'll just say, you are correct, I don't know it all about hunting, and never will. That's part of the fun. Seems like we hunt the exact same way in regards to scent control minus one item, so I'm not going to split anymore hairs. Simply put, we can't prove it one way or the other, we can only subjectively give our opinion based on our own observations in differing situations.

    Good luck to you and your son. Hope the kid kills a Booner.

    Yesterday I was only out of the blind from 1:15-3:00. Decided mid day today to make this an all day ordeal. Wish I had brought a sandwich.

    My wife and I had an awesome day hunting yesterday. I'm really proud of her, she passed on 7 bucks and 7 does yesterday. A couple of 1.5 yr olds, a few 2.5yr olds, and one 3.5yr old that was busted up. First deer of the morning came 15ft from us and we were sitting on the ground.
    Back at it again this evening. Good luck everyone!

    Thank you Iceman . I have no desire to argue those items either. I have seen really bizzare behavior since starting using it, that’s all. Don’t endorse it or sell it. We share a common hobby we appear to both be passionate about and that is good. Oddly we took a break to go get a pizza and had a shooter in my front yard between the pool and the bushhog dogging a doe.we Tried to get him in scope from my second story office window,, but couldn’t. Back in the blind again now, as it’s only maybe 200 yards from the house. Good luck

    Saw 8 does and 4 bucks this evening . One little 6 tried to chase a doe but his big brother an 8pt wasn't going to let him. Once that 8pt showed up that 6pt left down the holler. Good day in the woods 16 deer with 5 being bucks. My daughter saw 12 deer today 3 being bucks. Seems like most does aren't ready where I am at. Saw 9 bucks this weekend and most didn't act interested in the does much.
