The Badgers are scary. We've got them this year at Camp Randall. Tough place to play. Al - I like the Bills to go deep into the playoffs this year. Pozzy is a beast at MLB. My favorite pro player.

I went spotting last night - deer everywhere. I counted 189 deer, saw probably 50 bucks. The downside is that the spotlighting pressure is really getting heavy. I saw at least 4 other guys out shining. No sign of any big bucks, but I bet I glassed at least 15 nice looking 2.5's. Tons of 1.5's. Idid glasstwo bucks at a pretty long distance that looked like they might push PY.

Here's a video ofa buck that was recently filmed only about 5 miles from my house.... I don't know what he would score, but I would think upper 2's??? The buzz is starting to grow around here among locals - just hope some bastard doesn't poach him....

Saw nothing in the stand. Did see a fawn and another doe with a fawn when I was leaving. With all of the corn still in, I wasn't surprised that I did not see more.

I wish I did have a stand over there.... So close but yet so far away[:@]

I have been asking family if anyone knows anyone that owns some land over there but no luck so far....

I'll be hunting tomorrow, but I'm not on deer.

After the interview yesterday, I went out to Ohio to trudge through a million different places that I'd mapped-out in shed season. As it turns out, it's a terrible year for acorns in that area, and 95% of the trees are not producing. That complicates things in a big way. I expected at least ONE of these oak groves to be producing heavily. Unfortunately, that's not the case.

Even the acorn-producing trees that I DID find are putting off a very weak mast. Just a few caps laying around under them. Small acorns. Low production. Ugh.

It's too early yet to spend any time in my rut funnels, and with the acorns spread so thin, so is the sign.

Forecast tomorrow calls for rain. I'm sitting on a weak-producing white oak tomorrow a.m., and then as soon as the rain begins - I'm hopping on the shoeleather express and finding some trees that are putting down some nuts. I pride myself in scouting my ass off and being able to nail down a deer fast, but it looks like nothing will come easy this season.

Since it's a weak year for acorns in the area, I think I'm going to scout a few areas where there are bigger-crowned oaks, along the field edges and hillpoints. Usually, the bigger crowned timber yields a more reliable acornproduction.

Danno, I'll haveyou on deer when you gethere.

Interview went pretty well, by the way. It's competitive, so we'll see what happens. I tried to woo them with my awesomeness.
