Got out yesterday morning, small fork at 7:30-at 10 yards, then doe and fawn at 8.  Never came close enough-then that was all.  Sat til 11.  Will try again next weekend.  Fun to watch a mink and great horned owl.

Wow some nice deer being taken! Congrats to all! Supposed to rain like crazy the next 2 days and get warm. I think I may wait and go out for the gun opener on Saturday and then bow hunt after it is over. There has been a lot of shooting going on here as well.

Waushara county Wisconsin, 3pm.   Biggest buck of my life 13 points. We have had this buck on camera for 2 years never in day light, we have never seen him in day light. The rut has been slow for us and it all changed in a second, so just keep grinding everyone.

From last Sunday 11/5...not the biggest boy ever, but I feel really good about getting him.  Walking into my stand first light, bumped 2 deer from right in front of where I was gonna sit.  One deer (I believe a doe) bolted north, this guy took off south but didn't sound like he went far...heard the footfalls slow to a stop maybe 50-60 yards away in heavy cover.

Figuring it's still dark enough that he might not be sure what I am, I blew just a couple soft grunts and then climbed up my tree as quietly as I could.  Got set, blew 2 more soft grunts and here he comes padding back behind me.....17 yards, quartering away shot did the job.

Was out Friday-Saturday Mornings and evenings and Sunday morning.  I saw tons of small bucks and fawns with most of them giving me great shot opportunities.  Unfortunately all the mature does stayed out of range and the mature bucks I did see were well out of range on the neighbor's land.  Still getting the occasion fresh rub and scrape, but things seemed to calm quite a bit compared to last weekend.  Slow year for me overall.  I won't be back out bowhunting until probably around Christmas as I'll be bringing out the rifle for the 9-day gun season and deer camp and have used all my vacation time for the year.

Out again this morning and it was cold! Deer didn’t get moving until almost 7. Had a spike work by, then a lone big doe. 20 min later another doe eating in a plowed corn field and being chased by a basket 8. He wouldn’t come in to my grunts or bleats with the decoy out. Hopefully tonight!
