    I did this back in 2017 and did a good job of chronicling my hunts. I like going back to gain info on stands and weather and movement and also enjoying previous hunts. I'm going to give 2017 a try.

    Went on a scouting mission tonight. River got out and really changed the scenery down in the bottom. Put up a camera. Hope to hunt this around the rut but might have to Move the stand a bit.

    Heard 2 different blows SW of me, but couldn't have been because of me due to my entry and the wind direction. Had 3 deer on camera about 120 yards away but never saw them.

    Had a small buck wander in to 15 yards. Came from the NE from down the hill. Named him YTT (Young Tall Tight). Had 2 yearlings (button bucks?) come over from Poff's right at dark. Crossed the fence east of me near the lick. Walked by at 10 yards.

    Young buck came in from the NW near the corner of the beans and scrape. He went east on the field edge. Moved camera to over the scrape. Saw an albino or cinnamon young coon.
