Been at it all day... Nothing so far. Windy as all get out and getting a bit discouraged. I'm in a climber in a creek bottom and Dad is in the tower over looking the hay field now. Come on deer. Jackson Co.
I think they are moving in groups around here so it is all or nothing. When I walked out this morning the smallest area we have planted 75 yds off the paved road looked like a herd had been through. I haven’t seen one yet at this plot this weekend.
Not too breezy at ground level here, so maybe they will come through.
Back at it this evening, saw a doe this morning with about a pie plate size chunk of skin missing from around her shoulder. Couldn’t get a shot, but not sure I would have anyway. Never really know what to do in those situations.
Bumped a doe on the way in this evening, good luck to all.
Dooly Co. creek bottom.
Got in my climber about an hour ago. No movement so far. Wind is light right now but swirling down the valley I’m hunting. I had no action this morning but saw several groups of does feeding on the sides of the hwy between 1-3pm today. Seems like they were a little more active around mid day.
In a converted playfort stand in a planted pines in Sumter Co. nothing this AM. Around noon my son and I went for a ride on ATV. “Shouldn’t we bring a rifle” he said. “Nah” I replied. You got it. We were riding the edge of a huge cut corn field and a big doe was bedded down 5 feet off the field. We stopped in front of her. Had all the time in the world, she stood and walked away while we watched empty handed. Typical. Got a gun now, let’s see what happens!
Walker county over looking grown up field. Killed a doe here last week, a coyote the week before. Got 2 dogs running around out there now. Rabbit hunters hunted here this morning. Just going to enjoy my sit, may be the last of the season
Just made it up the tree in hancock. Late but finally made it. Traffic in Athens was a nightmare for some reason. Tonight and the am then I’m hanging it up. Don’t do it often but I’m hunting over a feeder tonight hoping one is hungry
