One thing is for sure,you can't kill em not being there,and yes that's were they live,but I have seen better days hunting but you never know...goodluck....also have seen them move quite a bit right before the rain and wind pick up alsos,and sometimes they like to check things out before it gets to windy also,so tomorrow might not be to bad in the morning...who knows..goodluck to all that going.
I’ve hunted hard the last two days and all the deer I’ve seen you could count on one hand. Did come close to dropping the hammer on one yesterday ... till the buck turned at an angle that I could see half his rack was missing. So.. I let him slip on through.
Which not making excuses... but this has been a highly unusual gun season on our place so far. We’ve killed one above-decent 9 point on opening day but overall just not seeing doe numbers as normal. Most all our sightings have been small bucks cruising.... no chasing what -so-ever.
The woods are tore up with rubs but I’ve yet to see active scrapes. Everyone I’ve found appears to not have been tended since before the gun opener.
I’m hoping we’re in a lockdown phase concerning our bigger bucks and does in general.
So.... I’m taking a break this weekend. I’m off work 3 days next week and may hit it again on Wednesday. Hoping things pick up a little.
Western KY is under a wind advisory with 30-40 mph winds with gusts as high as 50. If you’re hunting in the woods be on the look out for hangers. Likewise, mind your stands with the wind rocking the tree.
Was going to try a different spot but the wind has got me in a blind that ive over hunted. The stand will be moving way too much. As states be careful today guys a lot of standing dead timber and dead limbs are going to be coming down in this wind.
It’s howling here. I’m out. I’m not seeing much action in prime conditions I sure ain’t wasting my time this morning. Good luck to all that are braving this wind. My dad and buddy are at the farm in metcalfe. I’m gonna lock down with momma here awhile
