Looking like a great week of weather for a hunt. Temps in the 50's all week. Also waiting for McMiller to tell his successful moose adventure in New Foundland.

I was out last night again.  After a couple week lull, I am starting to see deer again, of course, I get to see one, or two, not herds.

I was in a ground stand I call the "upper bucket" stand.  Years ago, an old guy had an upturned bucket against a tree at the field edge.  I fine tuned and moved in a bit, maybe 75 yards from a fenceline (private edge),  a steep rise behind me and in front about 80 yards is a fallow field.  That private line ends in a corn field.

This is on public property, by the way.  I was hearing stocked pheasants crowing all afternoon.

In my ghillie suit, tucked into a small blow down, to my left is an area of maybe 2.5 feet tall pricker vine still with green leaves.

I got in, settled down, the chipmunks didn't make me and chirp all night (they are bad here),  the skwerls were thick.  Two big greys walked right behind me (mere feet) and one climbed up the tree I was leaning against, sat about 4 feet above me and made groaning noises for a minute, then walked away.

It was a great evening, the wind was fairly steady in a good direction, the woods were noisy, and about 25 minutes before the end, I was visited by a basket rack 1.5 year old buck.  He came down off the hillside from my left, crossed in front of me at less than 8 yards, and slowly walked toward the corn field.

I chose to let him walk, but I sure did "pick a spot".

Way cool, a close encounter on the ground. Hopefully you get a shot at a shooter. It is amazing how deer are so focused on what is in front of them but after they pass they are not too worried about what is behind them.
Good luck

I put a little more meat in the freezer this weekend. Now it is time to get after the bucks.

I was fortunate enough to take this buck last night. I generally hold out but with diaper duty and training a new puppy, I decided to take the first animal that presented itself. guaranteed I will see a monster the next time out, but that is what cameras are for.

I got a call at work this morning from a guy that was really excited and whispering. Excited and whispering, that can only mean one thing. It was Rainer Lemke. He had just dropped the string on his home made bow on an eight point buck and he thought the hit was pretty good. I had helped Rainer make that bow and the cool part was I did little more that help with the glue up, tillering and guidance where needed. Rainer had done the design and the rest so this bow was quite special to him. This was the first deer had shot with the bow.

COGRATULATIONS Rainer!!!!
