I took the day off and will be out. Not really sure if I will still hunt the same locations I originally planned since the weather is going to be so warm but it will be nice to be back up in the trees!

I don't know where you two are at in the state but is is raining harder than a cow peeing on a flat rock right now. I am still going in the morning though. I work 3rd shift and drive around quite a bit and the deer have really been moving the last few nights. It is not supposed to be raining in the morning and the temp. will be in the mid 50s so you never know!

Hunted today from 6:45am to 9:45am. Saw zero deer, one coyote, and one skunk. The coyote was 50 yards out and moving so no shot. Too bad, maybe next time!

Went again last night. Saw one rooster pheasant and one coyote. Again, the coyote was too far. Saw zero deer. Might try tomorrow morning.
