    They just crossed over farther away, not the buck I'm after he's much bigger deer seem to be staying away from this farm and staying on the one next to me I can hunt all three but this has always been the spot.

    Buddy and I have been playing musical stands for 2 days with the big bucks. He goes to one, I go to another, bucks go to two diff areas than where we are. He is frustrated. Windometer registered 2 gusts over 70 today here at the house. That's crazy. I'm smoking meat tonite so I stayed in, hoping to hear him boom one. Yesterday was SLOW for sure here. I saw a spike, a six and a doe. He saw 4 does and a 4pt and a spike.

    DRAHTS indeed then!
    But just remember--its only day 2! Not the greatest opener conditions but only takes 1 minute to turn the whole season around.

    Took down our deer camp this am. We had 12x 12 pop up canopy with nylon walls around it, set up with a table, chairs, two cots and a propane heater. We can keep it down right toasty in there. I usually leave it up through gun season so we can get our gear on in the warmth. Not this year. We dropped it as low as it can go and had it staked well. Got there this am and the walls had torn at the zippers, so I went ahead and packed it all up. Pulled cards and heard two big limbs/trees fall.
    Came home and flew a kite with the kids. Back out tomorrow to another property, fingers crossed.
    Good look this week ya’ll

    Had big plans to pack a box blind back to a long pasture field today. I had to run an errand for the wife at lunch then finished up the trim on the blind. Got it strapped to the tractor then a buddy from work pulled in. Long and short the blind didn’t get moved and I didn't get to hunt. Taking my wife for her first hunt in the morning. Good luck to everyone in the morning.

    The first morning I had a shot at a young 8 point, but I let him walk. I might be sorry before it's all over!
