    Just saw a doe about 350 yards from me. Definitely not in shooting range but I’m overlooking some patches of clover they like to hit around this time. Fingers crossed! God willing we all find success.

    The wife totally surprised me by saying she wanted to go. I worked out coverage for the boys. Sent her a txt saying get ready that we would go as soon as Dad and I got this gravity wagon full of feed backed into the barn. Those short suckers wont back for crap. Ended up hooking a chain to it so I could work the tung. Sometimes farm work gets in the way of hunting. Ended up having to cancel on her but have set it up so I can take her Monday morning. Been married 16 years and together 25, this is the very first time she has shown any desire to go. I did get her in the duck blind once but she only observed.

    I hunted a spot tonight where I had seen 20 plus deer the last two evenings. 3-4 different bucks chasing til way after dark when I was walking out both nights. I never saw hide nor hair this evening. I’m baffled! This season is throwing me for a loop!!!

    Put on warmer clothes and set the heater on high.;) I normally dont get cold when winter gets here because I spend so much time on the water in December and January but it hasn't gotten cold and stayed cold.

    No runs, scrapes or chasing around me. Small bucks still grouped up. Saw 9 does and 3 small bucks 2 spikes and a 6. Most does I’ve saw in 4 years on a single day. Guess that’s why we can’t kill many in zone 4.

    Had a great hunt this afternoon. Stud 10 at 50 yards. He left cane back through chasing a doe and had two other bucks in tow.

    The way you wrote that almost sounded like you were talking about humans:)

    I saw three does and one small spike this evening. The does are really liking the white loose salt I put out and it dissolved into the ground.
    I can't put out corn to many coons, squirrels and damcows.

    We were socked in by pea soup fog until about 1030. Small bucks were up and moving but it was difficult to see much past 50 yards. Overall heard very few shots today.

    Passed on a pig of a 8 pointer tonight, big old brute wide and tall I might regret it by the time season is over but I've seen him 3 days this week and never layed eyes on another Hunter on the adjoining farms.

    I saw a young 8 point at 2:05 this afternoon. Cruising hard. My friend saw him 600 yards away about 30 minutes later. Saw 3 does in the last 20 minutes of light, and all three went into the cedar thicket, I was expecting to see deer come out of. Wondering if they were heading for shelter?

    There is a bit of resistance as I walk into the wind this morning. Good luck and be safe this morning!

    Weather stinks got a blind 300 yrds from the house in a deep holler just don't know if I can make my self walk in the rain. Dog want to go bad so I might make the trip he's spoiled and can't stand me leaving him home.

    Wind is blowing hard this morning. My blind is in the bottom of a ravine so the wind blows over top, not much down in. Hoping that works in my favor and the deer want to be out of the wind also. Good luck to everyone!
