Default Week one....

No sightings opening day.... one on Tuesday....anda fewin the mts of southwest Va this past week. I spent 4 days up there and saw 15 deer in stand which is not a lot over 4 days, Im used to seeing 15 a sit on this farm. the temps were in the 70's everyday and the movement was not good.. I saw 9 different bucks 2 were at 6 yds and I passed, they were just not what I was looking for.. I also had some does in range as well, but I was sitting on some serious buck sign and decided not to shoot. I am o for o the first week of the season..have not drawn the bow on a deer yet, temps are going to be in the 80's this week!!!!!!! is it worth going????

I hope so Walt..I went yesterday afternoon and saw nothing.... I was sitting in raining acorns and still nothing... Im starting to question my judgement on stand placement... I don't mind not killing a deer, I don't like not seeing them..I hope things get better.

Yeah, this warm weather has had everything shut down for about a week here in Iowa! It's been tough hunting!

Today we have a Nor-wester blowing, and I'm PUMPED to get into the stand this afternoon!

This weekend the temp should drop, lows in the 30s and highs in the 60s, still a little warm but better then 75. In the next couple week the wind should change to the North and then its on. Come on November.

Yeh walt if only I could get on film myself!!!! I went out yesterday and put in 2.5 hrs of leg work on a peice of land and found acorns all over with NO evidence of deer eating them!! What is going on?? I found some wrist sized rubs and one really fresh scrape, I mean he peed in that thing like an hr before I found it... anyway, we'll see !!
