I have gotten behind a lil on my hunts. I hunted dec 4th out of the skybox. Had 3 does hang around for 45 min and the biggest got down wind and busted me so I shot her!

Hunted dec 5 pm out of barn only saw 2 does. They came running through out of the pines.

Hunted dec 7 from 7:30-3:00 saw 11 gobblers and 1 yearling doe.

Once again I'm behind!

12/11 pm NE winds hunted gap on edge of bean field 330-dark. No deer seen

12/12 pm SE winds hunted old ladder in bottom by river. Duck hunters started blasting at 445. Seen nothing this period.

12/13 am SE winds hunted box ladder on ridge seen large body deer just at day break but could only see outline. Then at 650 had doe and button fawn feed up ridge to me.

12/13 pm SE winds hunted skybox. Got to stand at 3:00 bumped deer on plot walking in. At 445 had 6pt come in plot. I watched him for 15 min then decided to take him. His rack was narrow and tines were short.

12/14 am S winds hunted ladder box on ridge at app 650 the same doe and button fawn fed up ridge again. Then at 820 2 deer crossed shooting lane straight ahead bu bean field. 1st deer was across before I could scope but 2nd was doe.

12/15 Pm NW winds 10-15 hunted barn loft. No deer seen this hunt


12/16 AM pouring rain
PM hunted the skybox. Had 5 gobblers in plot when I arrived at 1. 6 more gobblers fed through around 4. Had 4 does come in plot around 430 and fed for about 5min. The largest looked into the bottom and backed up out of plot, then all followed her. I figured either hog or buck spooked her. About 20min later a big black boar stepped out. I dropped him in his tracks. He dressed out at 190lbs.

12/17 N winds hunted barn stand. At around 715 a button head fed up the ridge and stayed around for 45 min. At app 8 a doe crossed the shooting lane and I could tell she was being pushed. I had my rifle up and ready but heard something to my left. As I turned to see what the sound was a good buck crossed the shooting lane. I stopped him and had a small opening at his vitals and missed. My shot clipped a tree. :bash:

PM hunted same spot and seen a small 8pt and a 6pt but the large one didn't show.

12/18 AM hunted burnsville. Seen 2 bucks and a doe and fawn.

12/19 PM SE winds I hunted ladder stand in bottom while buddy hunted box on ridge. At app 430 a buck came from behind me and at 1st glance I thought it was a young 4pt. After it crossed the creek I was watching I realized it was a 3.5yo 7pt, but I didnt want to fool with trying to get him across the creek so he got a free pass!
