Back from my Ohio hunt with a little bit of tag soup. 19 hunters in camp with zero kills. Hot weather and long hikes make for my worst vacation ever. Lol

Hope to have something on the ground soon.

Got my oldest out with me tonight for her first hunt ever, 9 years old. Both her and my wife have been bugging me to take her out one of these times so I decided to tonight while the weather is still nice, just chose a simple little spot on the field edge and put a couple things of brush in front of us to brush us in.. we’ll see what happens but as long as she enjoys it I’m good! 27d6161a090ca35c74d48e14b8e5573d.jpg97b19a11da41e2325bcdbb420975f0d8.jpg

Love the pic with the kiddo!

Youth season is next weekend and both my kids are wanting to go. Hope at least one of them gets a deer.

Checking in! Meant to earlier and forgot lol. Went out for the first time Sunday evening and saw a 5 pointer, doe and a fawn together in a group. Still early so I passed. The little buck was rubbing everything around the treestand though! Low of 24 tonight so that should get them moving a bit. I'm off work at 4pm with the new job so I'm home by 4:25ish, so am able to get a couple hours in for now. Sunset time is shrinking quickly though. 6:15 now but losing 2-3 minutes a day. Then daylight savings time in a few weeks, usually kicks in just before rifle season starts so that will put the kibosh to after work hunting lol.

On my way to work this morning around 6am I saw 2 nice bucks in the neighbour's field about 300 yards from my treestand. I stopped to shine the headlights on them since they were only 25 yards off the road or so and they took off right towards my stand.

So badly wanted to play hookie and turn around and head to the stand but we are backed up at work with boat winterizing so I didn't want to leave them hanging. 

Got home around 4:45 and booked it back to the stand. Half hour later I hear this commotion coming toward me, 3 stupid coyotes. Wish I would have had the rifle they would have been screwed!! 20 minutes after they left I heard something behind me. Turn around to see the rear end of a deer with his tail half up. It was on high alert. Not sure if it smelled me or the coyotes. He buggered off shortly after. Got out the stand about 15 minutes early so I could look around a bit and warm up, temp was down to 34 degrees or so with a stiff wind out of the northwest so it was a little chilly. Saw quite a few fresh rubs! Hopefully the weather is nice this weekend and I'll be able to get some hours in the stand. Supposed to be 60 tomorrow.

Well, last weekend was youth weekend so I wasn't able to hunt, but I was able to get both my kids in the woods.  My daughter, Lainey Ann, didn't see anything in one sit but my son, Chase, missed a decent 8 point on his second sit.  Buck fever he says. lol

This weekend starts our blackpowder season.  I'll be in the stand Saturday and Sunday but I'll have my bow with me.  Its going to be my first real attempt at hunting those bucks that I've gotten on camera at my new lease.  I let my son hunt one spot this past weekend but all we saw were does.  I plan on hunting that same spot for at least three sits in a row to see what kind of movement is in the area.  Maybe all the other hunters in the field will get the bucks up on their feet a little.

Took the day out of work today to get some tree stand time in, had a nice buck hot on a Doe running circles near me in a swamp bottom, she brought him right into me within 15 yards but I couldn’t get him to even think about stopping.. he was excited. Got to full draw but never an ethical opportunity.. that being said, I’m gonna try and stick it out for the day.. don’t get a ton of opportunity and I’m hoping they come cruising back through or something else with antler does!

Sitting in the blind as we speak. Rifle opened yesterday. Have today and tomorrow off. In the mid 40s and pouring rain here now. Had 6 does and fawns come out earlier.

When my daughter and I were setting the blind up Sunday morning a really nice buck came out, ran right in front of us! Hoping he makes an appearance today or tomorrow.
