The weather forecast is still calling for cool temperatures in the mornings for this weekend but the feed times aren't great, hopefully the deer will be on their feet and someone will have a god story to tell on this forum by Monday morning. Good luck to all!
Had a first happen to my daughter and me Saturday morning. My daughter was climbing up the ladder to our 2-man millennium stand and I was right behind her, she stepped up on the platform, started to unfold the seat to sit in it, and there was a snake in the seat. It got very interesting but she did good and didn't jump 20' out of the stand LOL. It was only a oak snake, which fortunately, she has seen and been around several in her young life which I'm sure helped the situation.
Nice weekend in the woods, my daughter killed her fist doe of her life Saturday morning and was as excited as if she shot a big buck. She killed two bucks last year, but hadn't shot a doe, so that was her goal this year. Starting to see more bucks show up as this weather has them moving.
My lease is partly in Early Co. We made a spring planting, the rains quit. Then after most of our planting died, the rains came back, and it's been raining off and on ever since. Out of 15 plots, we had four survive, looking good with peas and sunflowers. Cell camera sending plenty photo's of does and young bucks. To get mature bucks, it's necessary to put the cameras near a peanut field, but someone might see em. So I don't put cameras near the farm fields. Night hog hunters have knocked the numbers down and glad to see it. Not near as much hog sign as we saw during deer season. But now crops are up, hogs can't be shot in those fields at night, can't be seen. The numbers will rebound quickly. I've been working on our camp, and in the woods when it isn't raining.
