How was your opener? I was in my little brush blind at 5:45 central. Pouring the rain. Had a small doe come by at 7:45 and it started snowing like crazy. Then I had a chocolate lab with a orange collar come by about 8:00. At 8:30 a big doe came by at about 12 yards with two yearlings, one was a little doe and the other was a button buck. About the same time the snow stopped. Ended up with a good solid inch or better. Wind was blowing pretty good. All was quiet till 11:00 when I had a youn buck come in around 20 yards. He had 4 points on one side and the other side was broke off about 4 inches above his skull. Came in at noon and made some lunch. I went back out to another spot where I have a ladder stand. Hunted till dark but no other sightings. I did hear a shot a few hundred yards away across the road at 4:15. Other than that there wasn’t any other shots fired within a mile or more from me.
