Well I went out last night on Halloween. I must say that I really love hunting on Halloween. I have hunted it for the past 10 years and have seen lots of bucks and deer on that day. So like anyother Halloween I headed for the woods. It was a warm one. The hunt started with it being 71 out. When I left the stand it was 68. There was hardly any wind, but the little wind there was, was blowing to the north most of the night.  I got in stand at 3:37 and hunted till 7:21. I tryed grunting with no luck. I think next time Im going to bring the calls and the antlers and hit it a few times. Im going to take my decoy out too. Cant hurt anything. Anyways I was very bummed that I didnt see a deer. It marks the 1st time ever in 10 hunt's on Halloween. I didnt even see one driving out. But hey that happens right? That's what makes deer hunting fun is you never know. 
 
Anyone eles get out in the woods and try to be a ghostbuster for a ghost buck?

Whel,
 
Today I am off to Buffalo County, WI for my annual bowhunting trip.  It's too bad that Decker got my buck[:D].  Just kiddin'.  In any case, hope to see a bruiser half the size of his at least on my 5 days of hunting out there.  It may be difficult being that I don't use an outfitter or guiding service out there, just got a chance to hunt 1 week a year with my bow at a college buddies parent's land.  I can't wait, last year we saw a 160-170 class buck about 150 yds out sparring with a 140 or so and couldn't get either one to commit and never saw them the rest of the week, hopefully this year one will pass right below me.  Good luck everyone and will post some pics if the good lord graces me with a bounty.  I'm so pumped and wired today at work I can barely sit still, like a little kid!!! HA[&:]

Good luck dmcianfa! Im sure youll bring home a deer! Hope you see the 2 ya did last season.
 
As for myself, I am going to be hanging up my bow till the 11th. I have a lot of work ahead of me with school. Ill be in the UP from the 11-22nd Hunting so I cant complain about taking a little time off. On the bright side, I got my deer and this will give my area some time to rest. Im a little scared about all the other hunters hunting by me.. But well see how it goes.
 
As for weather it has been really hot here 70's +. I havent seen many deer driving to school. However I did see a few laying on the side of the road. No bucks.

I hunt in the Caseville area. While hunting last week-end I saw good activity on saturday evenings hunt but sunday nothing due to the increased hunter pressure. There where a lot of hunters getting ready for the firearm opener which caused the deer to hand tight. I saw good buck sign so hopefully the rut will hit just in time for the opener. Good luck to everyone next week-end shoot staight and be safe.
