    All the guys I talked to here said theyíre bedded up tight this morning. Itís supposed to blow here until about 3 then back off to nearly nothing at sundown. Iíd bet this afternoon will be the best of the year so far. Letting the farm I had the showdown at last night sit all weekend as there will be pheasant hunters around so will let the deer congregate in the river for a few days. Next week will be nuts I have a feeling. Momma gonna hunt her brotherís farm today and tomorrow while Iím gone pheasant hunting with some other family. Geese showed in droves last 2 days too. I absolutely love this time of year!

    I didn’t make it to 11. Had a decent one come through at 80 but not sure if he was a shooter. Will be back out in an hour or so went and got better cloths.

    Have better clothes but it is still cold I am sweating like a mo fo.

    Walked in on a flock of turkeys nailed one and followed blood for 200 yards prolly killed the deer hunt. Those things are hard to kill with a bow. Not sure if I want to try shooting at them again.

    Wait for one to be looking straight on to you. Aim for the base of the neck. Won't run a lick and barely flop around. Don't ruin any meat. Thank me later.

    My Dad got pretty good at killing them with a bow. Used one of those expandable browheads, made a bigger hole

    Hit with 2" expandable. It was sideways. I aimed just up the leg. I think I must have hit a little low. Freaking bled way more than a turkey should without dying.

    Tonight was slow but I probably jacked up the woods. Tomorrow is going to be cold as fug but it should be good. Have the right wind for my favorite stand. I am taking my 11 year old. He shook so bad with a doe at 26 so I am not sure how this will go. The stand works better for my left handed son, this boy is just going to have to turn and face the tree to shoot. I typically just turn my entire body or wait until they come around to the front problem is the front is at 25 yards so a little far for him.

    GL. I just tried to duck hunt. Its the opener and pond was frozen. Ice was breakable but dangerous ice conditions for the dog. We came back home.

    Kicked two out walking to the stand they ran 10 yards past my other boy and his buddy. Had a small 6 at 15 would have been a great first archery deer for my kid but he came to our left and down wind instead of to our right. Kid can’t catch a break.

    We ain't seen a deer since last sun think they're on acorns cause they're thicker at the house than along time. We left heater off this morning just to break monotony...
