Insane amount of browse even in the woods. More greenbrier and honeysuckle than I've ever seen with no browsing pressure on it whatsoever

Yes, skeeters are terrible. That and the high temps are exactly why I gave up bowhunting when I moved to mississippi. I will give an endorsement for the thermacell, however. Bought my first one ever just for this trip. They were swarming me this morn an hour before daylight. A fow min after I flipped it on, they all left me in peace. There are more owls here than anyplace I've been on... Seen 6 or 7 so far. Maybe they've eaten all the deer ;\)

Lost my long-winded last post on the stupid blackberry... A quick synopsis... Saw a few little deer this eve; no deer killed on PI, a few shot and lost; one stud buck killed on ensley ( recurve shooter posteed pics) with 24.5" beams, 185lb field dressed and will prob scare 150".

TWRA has been great! Rumor has it that they will even drag your deer out of the woods for you ;). But seriously, I thank you guys for all the hard work you've done to make this hunt fun!

really your still on this

Slow morn so far, but I expect it to pick up with the line of storms blowing thru. Looks like the isle is gona miss the first round. Unfortunately, wind is now swirling with the line of storms...just had a decent sized buck coming to a grunt call upwind, but then the wind changed and he blew outta here. Never close enough to even tell if it was a shooter or not. I'm getting a bit ripe...last shower was 48h ago \:\)

I'm willing to bet that the temperatures have alot to do with the deer movement being shut down
