    Out again on other side of section with this wind. Already had a buck making scrape 40 yards away while walking in. He came to 7 yards and then saw me. Place is tore up with rubs and scrapes on this side.

    Found This Now & Read Beginning to End

    Phil,

    I just found this thread and read it beginning to end. :)

    I look forward to seeing the water machine when you get it squared away.

    Thanks for sharing. Good luck in the days ahead. Be safe around the water in cold temperatures.

    Now you have to have a work her up work out. And not the fun kind either.

    Dang, had the encounter I wanted and next to the doe bedding area I'd hoped for. Absolute giant with incredible mass was pushing a doe....right downwind and no shot on the buck. May not be a booner behind every tree, but that brush sure had one.

    Hoping the GoPro, or game camera caught some of the encounter cuz it will be worth watching.

    It will be neat if it did. I'm hoping for something similar. The co-owners wife shot a buck in front of my trail cam last evening.

    Phil,

    I was ready for a big hero photo.

    Have you been back at that location?

    Thanks
