Went out opening morning, saw a rabbit and a hawk.. not even the squirrels that usually give me a lot of entertainment.

Won't get back out for a few days.. have to pay the bills.

Only got out Friday morning and did not see a deer, but oh was it beautiful morning. I just thanked the Lord for allowing me to live in a country where I can still hunt!

Had a nice buck right under my stand opening morning. Came and left before daylight. Just caught a glimpse of a tall, narrow rack. I've got my trail cam setup to try and get a better look at him but I think he's a dandy! [archer]

Rained out Saturday AM and only a single doe passing way out of range that evening.

Had a good chance at a doe Sunday AM but wasn't ready to fill that tag yet. Will probably regret it but oh well. Lot's of season left.

Hunted last evening till dark, saw nothing. Very breezy with the occasional gust, wind was pretty squirelly.

Friday AM I had coons all over the place fighting in the dark for about 45 minutes. I saw a few here and there moving around at first light. Made the hair on the back of my neck stand up with all the odd sounds and a ton of growling and snapping as they went all over the woods and up and down trees around me. It was like nothing I ever heard in the woods before. Saw two small does and a lot of squirrels. I also had a small hawk fly under my stand. Saw nothing Friday night and all day Saturday. I had three trail cams out on typically good spots to see if I missed anything at those stands. Not one pic on the cameras other than me. I have never seen so few deer on an opener. I didn't hunt Sunday due to church and other family stuff. The chancing weather and winds was probably to blame Saturday, but I thought some deer would move from other hunters. I did see Turkeys each day in good numbers. The most I have ever seen on our farm, but no shots. Maybe next time I get up there I will hunt until about 9 or so for deer then set up for a turkey on an open field edge where they have been moving around mid morning.

I made it out Saturday night, Sunday morning, & Sunday night. It was great to be in a tree stand again. I seen 3 does Saturday night but it got dark before they worked their way in. I sat on stand until past shooting light trying to give them time to clear the area. I thought they had left because I could no longer hear them but when I got down the lead doe snorted at me from about 40 yards away.

Nothing but squirrels for me Sunday but it was still a nice sit in the woods. [archer]

Monday was the first chance I had to get out. Beautiful day but pretty slow in my neck of the woods.I saw one doe at around 9:00am cruising a treeline on the eastern edge of my property. All the corn is still up around me and I've noticed that until that comes down, the movement through my woodlot is diminished. I'll be out again Monday.

Really like the woodsman heads, although we saw a ton of deer we saw most of them on other farms, while driving our farm had picked the soybeans two weeks ago, by Sat all corn fields were picked as well, those fields full of deer 50+, at least I got my first kill with my Javaman, good luck all.

Congrats on the doe!

I'll be heading up to Curran tomorrow morning for the weekend. Can't wait, shot a doe there last year and hoping to have a repeat this trip.

Good luck to everyone!

Jack
