Thanks Woodline, I wouldn't have known how to change the original thread title either. The participation level here seems to be about equal to my deer sightings.

Anyway, Woodline I know how you feel with the Public Land hunting thing. I hunt State Land, and after enough interuptions I learned to walk further back than most are willing to go. It's a longer drag with a deer, but it's worth the peace and quiet. Now, I only see another hunter on a rare occasion.

I'll be doing an evening hunt tonight since this nor-easter is about out of here! It's not the best wind, but I work with what I've got.

I didn't see squat last evening. That NE wind was TOO much! But, today I went in and reset one of my cams and came across 5 brand new scrapes! These are very close to one of my set-ups, so I can't wait to see what's making them.

I am getting ready to head to the stand this evening. I am going to be moving a stand to get closer to where the deer activity has been more consistent. It is overcast and still fairly warm, in the low 60s. The rains finally quit about 8 this morning so it should be an active evening. Good luck and good shooting!

Early In- I saw your post in the score card. Every one is allowed one doe to count for 25pts. Contest rule #15 I believe, you also get your buck score along with the doe score if you harvest both

Thanks iayoteman, I see that upon further reading.

I was out this evening with perfect conditions and didn't see squat again! Am I a victim of the October Lull? Bring on the Rut!!!

I went out last night and called in 3 little bucks with a grunt call. I went back out this morning and saw 15 deer. I shot a doe. We will not get credit for it though as I was by myself and could not get a picture of me with it. It was a great hunt. I called in 2 more smaller bucks with a grunt call. One of the little bucks was sparring with the other. The winner snort wheezed as he walked after the loser. He then turned and made a scrape. I shot the doe at 15 yards and the arrow took out the bottom of her heart. She only went 75 yards.
