Next Saturday gonna be a whirlwind of deer on my place. Saw one of the forestry guys at the gate to the pine tract by me. They are gonna harvest 60 percent of the tract starting Monday. And tells me there are some doozies in there. Now I'm gonna have to restrain myself from shooting the first day to get a look at a few of them. Only one buck tags left after the mistaking of the spike for a doe with my crossbow. Swear that thing was hiding those spikes in the white hair on his ears. Perfect color blend didn't see them till i lifted the head to tie drag harness on. Getting the smoke pole ready to go today. Good cleaning and fresh scope batteries and a few shots to check the scope. Was gonna go this morning with crossbow but dead battery in the red dot.Gonna take it as devine intervention as apposed to just crs. Keep forgetting to turn those dang scopes off. Put all the batteries together I've left on and you could crank my truck on a cold day.

Two more days and I'll be in the stand again. Been wanting to go check my camera so bad. e522678 but gonna stay out of there till Saturday morning. They are cutting the pines northwest of my lease but man they are taking there time about it. Only done about forty or so acres since Monday. The last tract they cut to the south they cleared the whole three hundred acres in four days and only had three feller bunches on the job. Two cutting and one back up with three skidders. Two weeks later and it was sheered shoved and ready to plant.that's the only bad thing about them cutting to the north west of my lease the places they are cutting are now gonna be row cropped where the grade allows. Gonna have to find something besides corn for the feeders since that seems to be the only thing they plant after the pines come out.

Nothing but does and a couple basket racks so far. It's hot and the acorns are falling like rain. Was foggy on this ridge till after eight this morning. Damn this urkeys came thru about ten thirty. Turned every leaf within a hundred yards of my stand. No fall season here for third year in a row guess they are waiting for them to get thick enough to throw a rock and kill one. Got a squirrel here that wants to die little fugger is about five foot from me right now puff puff squeak.

No kill today, had one old doe that bout bought the farm. Kept looking up at me and stomping had my camo net up to waist and gile suit top on. She couldn't figure me out so she just wandered off. Was a big bodied deer on top of the ridge when I snuck out no idea what it was. No new pics on trail camera gotta turn the damn thing on to get pics.think I'm getting part timers.

Four does and a spike at first light around six twenty. Took my climber moved over to other side of musky dine thicket. Think there might be more squirrels over here.seems like there's one in every tree. Tina sent me a text said she woke up to Ethan looking for pants. Asked him what he was doing up so early he said he was going to find pawpaw in them woods. He's now reluctantly eating cereal and watching Superman vs Batman. Lol poor little guy wants to go so bad.

Got a ear full when I came out of the woods. Tina was about to pull her hair out trying to keep him in the house. Gonna put the pop up blind in the woods beside the house so he can sit there and be loud after he gets back from church with Tina aka inga. He told me I was gonna get a spanking for leaving him. e522675 could have took him this morning wouldn't have made a difference in my hunt. Winds blowing so hard here you can't hear a thing moving. Maybe it will take some more leaves off the trees. Deer were at about 15 yards this mornings before I heard or saw them. Got a bunch of under story that needs cutting. Still waiting on the big bucks to start chasing does. Gonna go back to John's this week and try to get a couple more does for the freezer.

Well no deer but we did manage to kill one spider some kind of centipede and a six pack of peach teas. Wish you guys could hear him do his deer stand quiet talk. Poor country boy when he says pocket he sounds British. Most talkative two year old I've ever seen, wakes up talking goes to sleep talking.he was really excited to go deer hunting. At least now he has something new to talk about. And I'm gonna wind him up tight right before he goes home tonight. Daddy's in for a long g conversation. Lol

Back at it in the morning. Saw a big doe crossing over into my lease on my way in about an hour ago. She's over there wandering around in the morning she will catch a fatal case of lead poisoning. Can only hunt till noon if my boy doesn't have to work tomorrow. Supposed to bring the car I just put a engine in for his wife car which I gave her out to be serviced. Got hook it up and make sure it's still doing what it's supposed to. she drives the wheels off all her cars. Fixing to eat watch a flick then hit the sack. Long walk across the road to my tree stand. Lol Tina won't buy me a new four wheeler either.

I sold mine more accurately traded it for 3 more 4 wheelers and a dirt bike for my grandsons. None of them are big enough to haul a deer and the ropc on the go cart is to high to get one on. Plus my four wheeler was old smelly and hard to start. Better watch out Rhen you might get traded off.😱

Well nothing today maybe tomorrow. Fixing to start shooting lower age class does. They seem to be the biggest part of the population this year. From what's being checked in up town accorrding to Steve they have been over half of what's been checked in at his place.

Today's game has been called due to high winds and rain. Which was not in the fuggin forecast. Why doesn't the weather man say just guessing here folks instead of acting like he really knows what the weather will be? I'd like to woshambu him every time he gets it wrong.

Saw two on the way home yesterday crossing into my lease. Got home and Tina was awake coughing her head off so I took her to the doc. Only three days of BP left but I think I'm gonna keep at it with my muzzel loaders this year instead of going to my rifel.going out today as soon as I get done at the store this morning. Got two storage units to sell off. Might stick around and bid on them if they look good but more than likely just dumpster stuff or donations stuff for the blue house.
