How yall doing?

Been twice seen alot of deer (Croatan too!??) one NICE buck two smaller bucks just no shots. Coula woulda shot a doe last night, it was two does and a fawn and I wasnt sure which one the fawn belonged to so I passed them up.

Walking out Saturday night and walked up right close to a bear he grunted growled popped his jaws and boogied off - got my attention to say the least. then had a rough 250 sow and two cubs under the set last night right at dark, had to stay up the tree waiting for them to leave. [knothead]

Been a good time! anybody putting meat in the freezer??

I've seen plenty of deer...just nothing I wanted to take so far. Seems every adult doe on my property has twin fawns in tow. No bucks seen from the stand yet but a little yearling spike, who got a pass.

With that excellent NC acorn crop last year, lots of healthy does had twin fawns.

I recently relocated to North Carolina. Haven't been out yet since I'm still trying to find places to hunt. Have seen deer almost daily at the back of my yard though.

I haven't been out yet. I was on call opening weekend and then hurricane Irma through a wrench into my plans. The weather is going to clear out tonight but guess what, I go back on call tomorrow. [banghead] [knothead] maybe thursday. Good luck everyone.

Awesome time in the woods this evening! Had 7 deer within 10 yards (not all at once). Finally had a big mule-faced doe with no fawns tagging along with her come in to about 8 yards eating acorns. She was a wise old gal too, constantly testing the air. She caught me at half-draw, perfectly broadside, as soon as she caught my draw movement, she turned facing me, head-bobbing and such. Finally had to let down and she never spooked as in like "lets get the ____ outta here!" type, but turned and walked away about 25 yards and turned and kept looking back. She finally eased off the way she came. She don't know how close she came to meeting a Zwickey. Maybe next time.

The big does are hard to fool. Good luck on the return!

I've seen lots of nice deer. Does, fawns and a couple of nice 6 points. Trouble is, they're just milling around my yard ....

Could fill all my tags with a hammer.

My prospects are improving! I just got written permission to hunt 10 private acres, surrounded by 60 more. So, I donated a day of labor building a foot bridge over one of the streams on the property. Not close enough to hunt after work, but plenty close enough for a weekend drive. I'll wait a couple of weeks for the weather to cool a bit, then test the waters!

I'm still seeing lots of does with fawns tagging along. This evening had (I believe the same one from earlier in the week, same stand) a big mule-faced doe come in, another big doe and her twin fawns had already been around me for about 15 minutes eating acorns. I think to myself..."here comes fresh backstraps!" As soon as she got with 20 yards, I got turned and fingers on the string anticipating a shot, then suddenly the mama doe ran at her and ran her away from the oaks! She tried to come back in about 5 minutes later and as soon as she got within 15 yards of the trees, mama doe ran at her again, grunting and such. This time she wandered on off. Was a fun evening in the stand anyhow. Hopefully some bucks Ive got pictures of on my trail camera will start showing up sometime soon in daylight.

Good luck with the new property, Rough-Run. Keep us updated with hunt reports!

Hows everyone else's first full week of season going?
