Hunted north of 29 today with 5" snow on ground. Tracks everywhere but deer nowhere. Walked for an hour to warm up...got too warm but saw nice single-antlered buck hopping away. Not much one can do 'bout it with bow in hand. Where do these animals go during day? Tracks have to be from nocturnal activity only.

Typical late season.  Then one afternoon, if you hit it right, you'll see more than you can count.  Then they'll be gone (poof!) again......

3 squirrels were the excitement of the morning today. Super quiet in the woods.

I sat Sunday night. Had 2 does 2 fawns all under 20. May sit tomorrow morning and Saturday. If nothing happens those sits I guess I'll be out after the anterless hunt for the last week. Not giving up on my first bow deer yet.

Sat last night, saw 3 fawns and a doe. A doe and fawn came out right at dark and there's been a decent 8 that's been following them for the last week so thought he would be around. One deer circled downwind and busted me at the same time so it could of been him. Lots of movement Friday night on the camera. Going to head out from 11 to dark tonight.

Heading out tomorrow morning to bow hunt in Clark County. Looks like the weather will be nice. Overcast & low to mid twenties.

Got out yesterday morning.  Saw two early 80 yards away and that was it.  Thought they would move, should have been there Saturday night-parade of does.  Oh well.  Get out a few more sits yet.  Still hoping.  Not much for bucks on camera.  Strange.

Its a cycle that starts late october ends late december any time between then.Bucks are starting to buck up already,just because a buck is chasing a doe doesn't mean squat.
