Very windy, went in to a new place and found a spot to sit.

Image

This clearing in some thick stuff had fresh droppings everywhere, I found a spot on the edge and cleared a place to sit.

Image

Behind a few tree's.

Image

Large group of doe's came thru all around me at sunset.
The wind was blowing in excess of 30, the doe's were wired, I was pumped, and I shot at a doe and hit some brush.

They did not know what happened, just ran off.

It was very exciting. :mrgreen:

I will kill a deer at that spot before the trip is over.......

The most fresh deer sign I have seen in one spot in a while, it's just south of a refuge probably 40 acre's in size.

I would say 100 deer live in that area......

Hunting from the ground like that is the most exciting hunting I do, it's more difficult to have success, but it really is differant.

Anyway calmer wind tommorrow so I will be setting a stand in that area.

Got in the sand a little after 3:30.
Right away I noticed deer working around in the standing corn.

Image

Not wanting a repeat of last nite at the other spot, I stayed close to the tree and moved slow.....

I would say I watched at last seventy deer work around in the corn and cut bean's.
Maybe twenty came out to the West in daylight.

Image

Image

In the background of this pick you can make out more group's of deer.......

This is where the trail start's that I was hoping would bring some my way.
Four differant group's of deer gathered there and just would not come out.
The wind was perfect for me, but not good for the deer.
They gathered at the corner and milled around but all the group's went back to the North and East.


Image

S/W wind and I was N/W.
That set is N/E of the trail and tommorrow I am moving it forty yard's S/W so I can hunt it with a North wind and have the trail North of me.
I feel confidant on a North or N/W wind they will move out that way early.

I had a few small group's pass about firty yard's North of me.
I would see movement in the standing milo and they would pop out on the levee....

Image


Then work across the marsh.

Image

Got some good intel and seeing so many deer within a few hundred yard's definately cheered me up ad was totally awesome.....
Got in and out undetected.

BTW saw some decent buck's with the doe's, but they seemed just interested in feeding.

I feel rejuvinated and am glad I went out.

How much time do you have left on your hunt?
A buck will see you three times, and hear you twice, but he's only gonna smell you once.
