I got busted waking in and that dang doe blew at least 40 times but thankfully she ran off a good ways before she started her fuss. Jumped several others trying my best to be quiet but no chance with the leaves. Still managed to see 6 bucks 2 does so far. One buck was a shooter I'm pretty sure but I only got a glimpse of him twice for a second while he was running some does but only saw the one. the other bucks were 1.5 or 2.5 yr olds by themselves just munching. Gonna set for a couple more hours still...what's your activity been???


Oh yeah forgot to mention I watched 2 squirrels get it on about 10 feet away...that was something different to see....lol \:D

4 bucks - 1 had cool set of antlers - big high 4 on 1 side & cow horn on the other side. watched a 3 point make a scrape & a 4 point tear a sapling up. You would have thought he was king of the woods. overall a really cool morning in the woods

Spooked a few that were almost under my stand tree walling in before first light. 1 hr after daybreak I had a few does come in, followed by what I thought was a big bodied 6 or 8pt thru the thick stuff. He chased the does around grunting like crazy. I shot him and it ended up being a 4pt with a pig-like body, fat roman nose, and long main beams. His neck was very swollen and he smelled STRONGLY of musk.

Saw nothing but coyotes until 10am CST. Relieved myself and got back into the blind even though I was ready to go home. (worked all night). A very mature doe stepped out at 118 yards, by rangefinder, and I couldn't resist letting the Savage roar...
