Just wanted to congratulate 4khorn on his doe. Glad you had a successful hunt. Tried to post last night but had internet problems so Ill catch you up this morning.
I went out yesterday morning, got to my stand at 6:15 and didnt see anything till 8:00. Had 3 does and 7 bucks go by my stand. Action stopped by 9:30, the wind really started kickin it by then. The bucks were anything from a spike to 120 class 8ptr. I tried to play around about 8:30 and do some blind calling with my growler. Thats when a 7 and a fork came in. I dont think they were responding to my calling but just passing thru. I was in a 50yd wide pinch pt between 2 blocks of bigger timber. A little while later is when I saw the 8 following behind a doe and fawn. He wasnt pushin, just followin a few yards behind, but he did run off a 6ptr before he left with her. Istayed til 10, didnt see nothing else.
Last night it was warm, 70degrees, and the wind was blowin steady at 20. I went early,3:00. I didnt want to get caught like the night before. No chance of that, didnt see a deer all night, not even a squirrel. I suppose the warm temps and wind kept them tight, I dont really know but it sucked.
Didnt go this morning. I had my 3 yr old granddaughter stay the night and wanted to play with her before she went back to Indy. We wont see her again til Christmas so I figured the deer could wait. Ill go to church in a few then head out again this evening.
On a side note, my buddy went this morning and got a big 9ptr. I havent seen it yet, but he thought it would go 160. Ill score it for him after church and let you know. I would post a pic but sadly I dont know how to do all that. Maybe I can find someone to help me.
Good luck today and BE SAFE!
