    Stand Time: 6:30am-6:30pm
    12 Hours
    Deer: 2
    Type: (1) 8pt 110" Buck at 7:45am (1) Doe at 12:38pm

    That is it... no chasing, no cruisers, no spikes, forkeys or sixers...

    One coyote and one domestic dog. That is it! Worst day I have ever had on this stand at this place pre rifle season.

    Hard to explain... day before... multiple sightings and chance at a 150" 10pt.... today one little buck

    Gotta plan for tomorrow.. hope it works out...

    full day saturday, half day sunday.... day and half to get it done!

    I would have had more vacation days this season but darn Mexico trip with my wife for anniversary is killing me...

    Guess I cannot complain, had a chance first day!

    Need some good vibes sent my way.

    The wind has changed direction, that might have something to do with it. Also I am seeing a lot of bucks being locked down with does already. Does are sticking to thick cover to hide from all the pesky bucks and the bucks that have a hot doe are keeping them away from all the others....02.

    Good luck, persistance pays!!!

    Stay after em. If it's a know doe area, the bucks will be there sooner or later.

    I'm up here too. We have 4 hunters covering a pretty decent amount of ground. I sat all day yesterday. Saw 4 does early and a spike around 9. That's it for deer. Couple coons. Squirrels weren't even hardly moving. One decent 10 this morning, but nobody has reported much chasing up here. Today's gonna be good. Tomorrow will be even better !
