OK,  let's play a game with him.  Each evening at this time, you show up, dump the bait, then sit down and start munching away.  He thinks you are a lesser critter, chases you up the tree each night, and doesn't care at all that you are there.  Then,  one day soon. . . .  oh. . .  V I D E O

Any news from anybody ?  Come on guys !

I shot a year and a half old doe on Sunday.  She was the only deer I saw and she walked up to and around my stand for several minutes near the end of the day.  I took a shot that I tend to preach to the newbies not to take but hit her very well, she went down in about 25 yards.  Fairly heavy bow, 600 plus grain arrows, shaving sharp grizzlies and a ten yard shot make a formidable team.

I just ate backstraps tonight and they were incredible.  Put up the deer as a few roasts, two- pound packages of chunks for stew or other, and the rest as ground deer.  I am thinking, if I get lucky again, I want to make (or have made) a bunch of sausage.  Been a while.

Was out last Sunday for the afternoon sit.  Wind was all wrong for most of my stand sets at one public grounds so I went to another that I have been scouting.  I found an area a few days earlier that was really beat up with trails and tracks.  Acorns are falling, a lot and this is a grove of mixed white and red oaks, with a few hickory and others thrown in the mix.

I set up in a 16" diameter oak tree.  Not so high, maybe 12 feet.  There were several natural openings giving me view over about a 50 to 75 yard radius (what a change from my normal swamp setting) and good shot possibilities out to about 15 - 20 yards, which is what I like.

It was quiet, very slight wind from the lowlands up to me and beyond. Right at the end of day, a deer comes into view behind me.  Eating up the acorns and meandering past and downhill, away, then, uphill towards me.  

It was a big body deer, I didn't see antlers, but my binoculars were in my fanny pack, not around my neck, so I couldn't be sure.  I did not want to affix my only buck tag to a 4" spike on the first two weeks of the season.

Several poses later, a second, smaller deer comes into view from behind.  This one acts a bit suspicious and causes the first to withdraw.  It was better that way I guess.

A great evening.  Then, on my way back out to the truck, a group of coyotes sounded off across a dried pond, maybe 200 - 300 yards distant.  Hmmm, I hope I have a date with one of them later.
