I like it!

I am going to try to get out one night this week.

Trail cams are fairly quiet. I am not going to hit it too hard until around Halloween.

Sat the whole day on the opener here in Maine. Not a one! But what a spectacular day for it! When I got home my wife proceeded  to tell me how they were out in the field next door at 3:00pm.
Thanks hun!!

My cams are fairly quiet too. It has been warm. I am sure things will get better when it finally cools off.

My cameras have had more buck activity than usual. Usually a bunch of bucks in velvet then they usually stop getting their picture taken after the velvet is off. Not the case this year though. I sat for few hours in the evening on the October 1st southern tier opener. Saw one doe at 20 yards.

Sounds promising Bobby. I had my first sit last night, 1 doe but no shot on her.

Been watching the doe behind the house, 3-9 of them all day long.  Lazy things just lay in the plot n get up to feed every once in awhile, then lay back down.

I hunted the cold front last Thursday evening (October 4th). Sat over a green alfalfa field. I saw 6 bucks and 2 does. 2 of the bucks were shooters but didn’t get close enough. Almost all of the bucks that came into the field checked the does and I was treated to watching a small 5 point sparring with a small 6 point. It was an exciting hunt especially for my second sit of the season.

That’s an awesome sit!

I will be out with the smoke pole Saturday.

Another couple of weeks and it’s time to get serious!!!
