T-minus 48 hours to the big trip, SD. Temp. is looking great 60 for the high 37 for the low. I'am hoping for a 120" or bigger, andI will shot a doe before I shot a small buck. fling'em and sting'em boys!

I've been out every day this week with no success!

This after noon I had one of the better hunts I've had in awhile! I decided to do a little scouting, by way of still hunting! Ijumped a doe within the first 10 minutes. My first sighting this week!! After about 2 hours of looking for trees to climb, I went back to the area,I thought to be the best I'd seen, to mark a tree or two! After marking them I decided to still hunt my way out of the woods!! It was 3:45! As soon as I started again I spotted a doe at about 150yds! The wind was good, but she didn't seem to be heading my way, so I started stalking slowly! Hiding behind trees, only moving when the wind was blowing to help hide my motion, and help hide the crunch of the leaves under my boots! It was working, she had no idea I was there!! Slowly but surely I kept easing towards her! Aways trying to keep trees between us. I got to within about 20 yds, and was hiding behind a big oak when she decided to head my way! At 7 yards she stopped with her head behind a tree, perfectly broadside. I drew back and put the pin in the bread basket, and then noticed 2 branches about the size of my pinkie blocking my shot! She stood there, feeding,for about a minute. I'm thinking I'll get her when she steps from behind the tree! Only instead of walking the way she was headed, she turned straight towards me. I'm standing there drawn, going on about a minute and a halfnow! She puts her head down to feed, and I had to let my bow down, I was starting to shake! She didn't bolt, I was surprised she didn't see me!!About 20 seconds lateran acorn falls to the ground behind me, and she looked. BUSTED! She new something was wrong, but I don't think she new what, as she only ran about 50 yards, stopped looked back for a minute, and started feeding again. Had itnot been so late I may have tried again!!It was 5:50! It took me a little over 2 hours, to go 150 yds, but I ended up a mere 6 yds from her!

It was a dang fine doe too!! The best day I've had hunting in quite awhile, and I didn't even let an arrow loose!! That's what it's all about boys!!!

Well I will be heading up to upstate NY this afternoon till tuesday. the weather seems like it will be just right 50 high 34 low. Scouting last week I saw some scrapes (which I was a little surprised ) but hey at least I know the stand Is in the right spot. Hopefully I can get us on the board this weekend. You'll have a full report upon my return.

Stay safe and good hunting this weekend gents

I finally saw a buck today! It was about 100yds away, but I could still see rack! Not sure how big though!! I've seen 7 deer in the last 2 days, and 5 of them were within 25yds, but they never offered me the right shot! I have drawn my bow 3 times though!
Gl to all this weekend!!
