Look forward to stories and get a feel for movement. Look forward to the opener tomorrow.
2019 updates from the stand
Saw a decent 8ptr out cruisin this morning, no shot opportunity. We’ll see what the next couple days brings?!
I am currently stuck at work but it sounds like this morning is the morning to be out so far.. I have two buddies who have both hit giants and are awaiting tracking jobs.. oh the jealousy lol
Not from the stand but from the truck. On Hwy 64 noon today, Marinette Co. Saw two deer cross the road a long ways in front of me, no big deal. Got up to them and they were walking in a soybean field 50 yards off the road. Had to be the biggest buck/rack I have personally seen in many years. Wide and very high and right on her tail. Wanted to get a pic but had traffic coming behind me, which was also slowing down to check him. Talk about getting the blood boiling.........
Holy crap the woods just exploded!! One hot doe and 5 bucks chasing her! 3 out of 5 were big bucks!
Seen quite a few again already. Tons of does and 4 bucks. Two were nice bucks and just cruising.
The weather tonight made me happy about two things:
1. I shot a buck Saturday. Not big but it was nice weather.
2. We took our kids trick or treating on Sunday. We live between two towns so can go Sunday or tonight. Easy choice this year!
Well I had a pretty good night tonight. Saw 4 bucks and 2 doe. 2 of the bucks were pretty nice and I would have been happy with either. A nice wide 8pt tearing up a sapling that stayed just out of range. Then a nice heavy 9 or 10pt that came in straight downwind with a 4pt right behind him. Of course he busted me. Caught my scent and just froze with me up in the tree bow in hand shaking like a leaf. First time this year I have got to feel that feeling. Back at it tomorrow night hoping they come back for more. Good luck everyone
Been back out since about 2pm. Have seen a ton so far probably 15-18 deer. Only notable was grunting in a nice 8pt to 15 yards. Saw him about 80 yards out, grunted and he came in directly downwind and caught my scent before I could draw. Marquette county private
Got the ok to go hunting before the trick or treating starts tonight..3 fresh inches of snow on the ground but windy.. they have to start moving at some time. I'll be heading for the stand shortly
Slow cold morning so far. One small buck and a small doe that were moving very slowly. Breezy and clumps of snow falling from the trees
