It would be ashame if you finally did fall asleep and accidently slept most of the morning. It' s 11:30 am right now and I know you are out there enjoying the opening day hunt. I have one more week until the Wis. gun hunt and I am already have a hard time sleeping. And when I do I am dreaming of the big buck that I am going to get this year.

ouch! i did that once. i was so excited to go out hunting, at 1:30am i suited up and went out. i thought i would get out a little early. the stand i was hunting was only a 4 minute walk form the back door of the house. so i get out there and sit down next to the tree that the stand is in cuz i didnt want to clinmb in the dark. when i say it was dark, i mean it was DARK! i literaly could not see my hand in front of my face. so i figured, what am i doing, i cant even see anything, so i wlak back up the hill towards the house about 25 yards and decide to sit donw there and wait it out, then i decided to just lay back on the hill and look at the stars. i woke up about 3:30am freezing my nads off so i go back into the house and lay down on the bed a wrap up in a blanket to keep me warm. about 10:30 i woke up to a gun shot, i scrabmle to get my stuff together and run out the door towards my stand. as im runnig down the hill, my partner is draging a buck out of the woods, he shot it under my stand. he said, " where did you just come from?" i said, " its a long story." he just shook his head and walked up the hill with the deer. bummer!

ChiTown actually at that time i was just coming bk in i was FROZE, couldnt feel my feet and hands, but man it was great, didnt see anything but it was still great. went bk out aftr thawing out in a different spot until dark( 1:30 -5;15) still didnt see anything but still enjoyed- rght now its 4:30 am getting woke up and gonna try again today----hopefully wind isnt as bad today, we had some NASTY wind, (according to weather for area) 50-60 mph gusts, but it seemed to be more then just gusts more like almost constant. turkeyhunter i know what you mean, got out there and ended up dosing off a couple of times, but only for a few minutes at a time, everytime something cracked i was wide awke looking and listening. A.K.A thats too bad about your buck, but congrats to your buddy, hopefully you eill get ' yours ' . Good luk to all....

Sometimes the anticipation of the hunt is as good as the hunt. Good luck and I hope it' s all you thought it would be!

Let us know how you do.
