Just got back in stand...stand. being a ground set. Sitting on ground with decoy in the cut corn next to a bed. Plan on hanging stand but because of the rain all dirt roads without gravelare terrible. Also mean access to farm roads no go. It has to be 1/2 mile plus walk...just cannot get all the gear to tree in one trip.

When I scouted this today...bumped a big buck bedded with doe. Those deer basically can non balled into creek and swam for other side. Pretty cool to watch. He was big buck for sure. I would guess he was framed up for 140-150. Deer I would shoot all day.

11-7 full day #2
Back in the funnel set. Here is pic of deer from yesterday. This is second buck


He came from left 2 right as did other two bucks. Its a perfect setup if bucks cruise these doe beds.

Here is the view from stand. This farm road cuts two doe bedding areas in half. And the way the blow downs and fence is there is a gap 20 yds front of me. All deer run this gap when moving through here. If I had been sitting here in this set last year I would have killed a giant.

Just had doe cross above me on downwind side. With stand setup no way I can shoot to that spot. If good buck crosses...no shots. Chose give up down side for better cover when deer cross in front of me.

Just had doe two lambs come through funnel. Perfect how they are traveling through. Wind is not so good. Thermals saving my butt.

Just wish I had found this funnel 4 yes ago. Hunted around it in doe beds. Killed bucks around these beds. Just missed exact spot. Going to hang set for southerly wind...hunt this nearly everyday in morning.

Just see another doe come down cart road. First deer I have seen cross in different spot. You could see it jumping over trees and barbed wire. It was either doe or button buck.
