Spent opening morning hunting with my son. We had a doe group work by but they stayed at around 70 yards so no shot.
Me and the little guy.
It may be cheesy but we try and get some pictures every opening day.
Saturday evening I went to hunt a good bed that only sets up good for south/southwest winds. My access was over a mile into the spot. I planned on him hopefully exiting his bed and side hilling the hill out to a point. At crunch time I had a deer that had dropped down below me blow when it get in my wind. It was a solo deer but too thick for me to get eyes on it even though it was about 60 yards away. I think the deer left the bed and dropped straight down the hill. Either way, no luck.
Sunday evening I took my daughter with me to a stupid spot. We dropped into a creek and setup on the creek bank about 50 yards from the road. As we were setting up, we here sirens and a metal "wop, wop, wop" sound. The next thing I see is a high speed chase fly by us. One junky Honda with what sounded like a wheel bearing assembly gone out and two cops in pursuit!
Even out in the country on an old chipped road you can find big city living I guess. I sat Lily's stand up about 1.5 feet off the ground and I just stood beside the tree. We had a young six point work the creek bank at about 15 yards. It was pretty awesome to be that close and for her to be with me. We had the right spot and the wrong buck. This six point has been running with a decent eight that we were after but he didn't show. We saw a few does as we were sneaking out. A good opening weekend but nothing killed yet.
My father in law found this guy dead while he was cutting hay. I think he has 13 points altogether.
