Default Sun-up to Sundown, My last day!

Wednesday is going to be my last day in the woods as far as hunting goes.
I'm going out west to some public property that I haven't hunted since the first of November, usually there aren't many hunters in the woods after christmas so I should have a good chance at seeing some activity. My plan is to set up in the morning in one spot til 9am then do some stalking/scouting until 3pm and then setup in a new place that show some good signs.
Should be a good day they're calling for some snow showers in the morning.
Tomorrow is all or nothing, I need one more to hold me over until October 1st!!

Stick one today and the off season will be so much sweeter. My prayers are with you in your quest.

Tomorrow is going to be my last day, today is not looking good with the wind and all, tomorrow I think will be the better of the 2 days, but either way, the season is going to end whether I shoot something or not!

Tonight was the end of my season. And I pulled out all the stops and it hurt me I had three large does working up to my tree stand then they saw my decoy that I put out.When they saw it they meandered away from it.I harvested a nice doe this year with this decoy and had a few really nice bucks come into it at other times as well as yotes.Oh well I'll keep notes and set it up differently next season.Good luck to you all.It was a blustery night.Bill D>

Well it's over!
I was in the woods by 6am and came out at 5:30pm. I hiked proably 5-6 miles
through pines, thorns, thick bedding areas, open fields, I would find a well used trail and setup on it for a couple of hours then hike some more. A freind met me at 3pm and we setup by a corn field on a trail i found this morning, he went about 150 yards away from me in a creek bed. After all the work I did during the day all I saw was one doe that I kicked up when I was headed to the truck to come home.My friend had six doe 70 yards out then they ran for some reason.
I couldn't belive after all that time in the woods I only saw one deer, but I did find some areas that I will be hunting next season , lots of big rubs!!

Overall I have had a great year I got my first bow kill 11pt and missed an 8 & 9pt.
I will never forget this season, I'm hooked for life!!!
