I guess this is a rub? Black Squirrel was it really that high?

Thanks for posting those pics Gardner. We had a nice productive trip. We saw plenty of tracks and a few nice beds as you can see. These beds are located in a brushy area of the swamp, no big trees to hang stands. Now we got to figure out how to kill one of these guys. ;)

I have the same problem in one of the marshes I hunt. I know where a really good buck has been bedding but I can't get close enough to seal the deal. From the tree I sit in that is about 120 yards away I can see him get up from his bed but he never moves past his staging area before last light. Very frustrating but I guess I will have to hunt from the ground if possible.
