Well, my trail cam says there is at least one big bodied legal buck here. I'd like to see him.

Hope he shows up during hunting hours for you. Nice size.

Night time seems to be when they are being caught by the trail cams here too.

Open of gun season Sat. and a warming trend to bring wintry mix and rain with 15 mph south wind.
Have a doe and a couple buck tags to fill if the occasion arises.

Good luck to you.

you locked your keys inside the truck.

with it running and the cabin locked. I had a hidden cabin key, but a spare truck key is a couple hundred miles away,

I bet you never lock your keys in the truck at home.

Ive had my keys locked in my truck twice, and you are right. The first time  I had it done, was by my friend Joe wade. We were back at a private lake to ice fish, given permission by a friend that had a cabin on the lake. They were gone, it was three miles back in, there were no other neighbors. Luckily thier pole barn was open and I found a coat hanger and a prybar.   This wasn't as scary this time. I knew I could get in as I already had to do it once,

My Dad and I saw a nice, large bodied buck around our place before hunting season. I've yet to see him again. Still trying though!

So do you think it was snowing hard here near Detour Village last night?

If that keeps up, your going to need Sprucebunny to pull her track drives off her quad and UPS them to you!

It was doing it again tonight when I came up. I've not looked back outside to see if it let up. If it doesn't that means getting dressed and cruising and breaking the trails again with the quad to make sure I can continue to get around with it.

You could always bust out the snowshoes, but they won't help you drag that Big Daddy out.  ;D

You have to feel sorry for those bucks, for their body size their racks appear puny. Of course this  leads to deer yard management. Prescription : Push out snow and ice to where at least 50% of feeding area has some bare or stubble covered soil. Mix some 'crazy-buck' stuff [could use  dried ground castor gland and doe urine, just a pinch] in your corn or feed. That should kick-start the rut again. Poor bucks, no where to scrape. :'(

This is my oldest personal possession. It is a knit hat I have had since at least before I was 12. It has been repaired many times, but it is still very wearable. I decided to bring it along this year. I usually don't wear it hunting, but this year I will.   The foam decoy is home made after seeing one a friend had. A little foam, paint and some cardboard paint templates and ya got a decoy! you can roll it up and stick it in your pocket.

cool decoy
I just started using a pair of Montana decoys this year, have been very impressed with the reactions
of the deer that have walked by. two times the deer came dead down wind of me, smelled me, yet they were looking at deer, the deer were very confused LOL
then each time they would circle around, and look at the decoys. forgetting about winding me and
wondering why the decoys were just standing there, the deer were paying no attention to me in the stand, made for some very cool encounters

I've been trying to put some of the photos I've been taking this year deer hunting together in a video, and this is what I came up with after battling learning a new process the last two days. Not sure if this link gives you full screen, but it is best if you change it to full screen. Hope you enjoy. :)

Beautiful! I've never seen anything like it.
I think the photograph with the tall spruce is my favorite.
