man what a fun night. about an hour after that buck knocked my decoy over the deer started to show up. does and lambs started to show. bingo just what I was hoping. coming right from the direction I hoped they would. eventually 9 does/lambs would end up in front of me.

well guess who came back...

this is when it gets crazy. another buck shows up. smaller body. bigger rack.

he comes up to the decoy. not nearly as aggressive but still gives the decoy the horns
down it goes again. crazy to have that happen twice in one night.

great night on stand. found the food source and the doe groups I was looking for. now just need the local shoppers. today the rut is really starting to show signs of heating up. these next few days should be awesome

guess video link did not work. will post it again.
day 6 morning
back in funnel set again. hate to abandon this set as the mega giant I saw few days ago never seems to stray far from this property. yesterday was first real sign to say that its happening. almost hit buck last night. so deer are really starting to move. its all about being in the right spot in the right area. Dallas has seen very little out of his sets on the other side of the property.

day 6 evening
its 66 degrees!! bit to hot. but deer movement during daylight midday is picking up. seeing more deer on feet midday. still not a ton of activity in morning past 8:30.

setup in same stand as last night. steady sse wind. had to bring hammer with me to nail in tent spikes to decoys feet. bucks broke tab last night when they plowed it.

got off stand this morning, pulled cams. Mr. booner showed again! so my buddy is hunting in that area tonight. If I get a chance I will post a picture of him.

so I am going to kick back put some suntan lotion on and get some sun!

day 7 morning
back at it again. sitting same tree where I hunted opening morning. everyone is just not seeing much. everyone thinks next week going to be different. that's a hunter ever the eternal optimist. I believe its on right now. its November 9 today. on this piece of ground we are just not seeing the deer. mainly the doe groups.

we did find dead doe beside a watering hole. just wondering how many deer die this year from ehd/ blue tongue. I am not sure.

well that was close. tonight just about dark deer steps out of the bed. by thne posture I knew it was a buck. came into the decoy. never really fully commited. it was just too dark. knew he had horns. sccould see with my binos that he had a cage...just too dark. 5-8 min earlier been a different story. we got pics of a decent buck? coming by a scrape at 7:30 this morning. and got pics of a good buck on scrape last night.

so going to hunt this area again in the morning. bucks are cruising these doe bedding areas off this corn field. good chance we can catch one on the field during daylight. don't hunt these spots much during the morning. usually in the timber. but timber is just not producing right now. at least on the ground we have been hunting.
