10/29 AM. 32• winds NNW 0-5 I'm hunting the barn stand. Have seen deer on every hunt here but not connected yet here. The weather has gotten cool and should be a good morning to issue a drain hole or 2.
At 8:05 had app 5 does come out of pines. They stopped in the firebreak and my grand mother (I'm hunting RIGHT behind her house) came out to feed her cats and was yelling here kitty kitty kitty. Well they didn't hang around.
10/31 AM 37• winds 5 E hunted lockon on edge of bean field in the bottom. At app 7:30 had 4 does slip in behind me. Were 30yds when I saw them. Got busted drawing. Didn't see any more this hunt. Spent the afternoon working on the "Skybox".

11/05 youth hunt PM 60• winds 10-15 SSE
We hunted ladder box stand on hardwood ridge. We got in the stand at 4:15 and at 5 he was ready to go. Luckily his iPod touch occupied him until dark. We saw plenty of squirrels and birds but no deer.
11/06 AM winds 5-10 SSE we hunted the "skybox". Time changed and we got in the stand at 5:45. We seen 2 squirrels and a few crows, I had just about giving up on seeing a deer. After a few txts to Mr. Terry I checked the forum and was in the middle of reading Glenns post and looked up and 2 does were in the plot. I nudged Matthew and told him to get ready. A few seconds later I realized he hadn't moved. Well he was watching a movie on his iPod touch with ear buds and didn't hear me. I got his attention and helped him get his gun out the window and he cocked the hammer on his 243 youth handi and blasted her. She jumped and kicked at the shot and I could see the hole. He drilled her perfect in the shoulder. She ran app 40yds with a 2' wide blood trail. He trailed her up and was all smiles
