Loudon county public land. Big group of does cruises in front of me at 60 yds along an edge where an oak flat meets some thick cover. I aim at the biggest one. Just as I am about to fire my shooting stick slips. Rifle goes off in the general direction of the deer. Total miss. They run for the hills. Pathetic!!!

Debating whether to head home for a hot breakfast or stay on stand. I was planning to do an all day sit but after that fiasco I'm having second thoughts.


I would trade with you in a heart beat!!!! I am sitting in the office. Most of the time, deer do not know where shots come from anyway....they just run when they hear it.

Snowed in Wilson Co this AM. My Dad had one slip by him around 7:30 and I had a spike come in around 8:10. My brother was leaving and had a big doe standing right off his drive way around 10:30.

It wasn't a morning of deer sightings at all! Not one. Crazy part is today west north west winds, tomorrow back to a south wind. Never thought much about it but weather and women are a lot alike, cold on one day warm the next. Can't complain to much though, my 7 yr old got his first buck and doe this year. On the other hand, I somehow missed rut. And deer have proved to be not only gun shy but camera shy as well. Maybe after January's youth hunt I'll put my feeders back out and hopefully the deer we have let walk are still able to mature.

It was not the morning I expected either. I was sitting in one of my best spots and did not see a single deer.

What a nice frost! Fan batteries dies about 2 o'clock, I looked out and thought I saw snow. Deer will be searching high and low for food overnight. Hope they stay up for a nice sunrise!
