Nothing in daylight. While packing up my stand I heard deer coming from the expected bedding. They saw my light I think and held up in the brush.

Felt like October weather tonight.

Nothing this evening. Stopped halfway out to my intended destination ..sign got real good... but, nothing seen or heard. Sure enjoyed the rising "supermoon" on the way home.

Three more smokepole days left, but the weather is not gonna be nice here tomorrow.

Jumped one on the way to the stand or before you set the stand?


On the way to the stand

[quote="Dewey"]Decided to bring my muzzleloader again today for one last gun hunt. On the way in or maybe even last night busting through the cattails I lost my ram rod. Didn’t notice it till I almost got to my tree to set up today. Hope I don’t need to reload. :doh:

I killed a big 15pt one year because I lost my ramrod and had to go back the next day to look for it

No cool story but I did find that an old aluminum Easton 2315 Autumn Orange arrow works perfect for a ramrod. :lol:

It will do till I get a new one but think I’m done with the muzzy for the year.

Right now I can find all the pressure from guys pre hung sets using hu t stand it’s visible the amount t sign not around their stands vs areas I keep low pressure.

Saw 2 people get knocked over by the wind in downtown milwaukee today when they rounded a corner of a building. Shouldn't laugh, but it was pretty funny :lol: It's always windy down here, and the buildings create the nastiest wind tunnels.

I wouldn't doubt it at all. I'm on the first floor of a shorter building and you can feel the gusts when they hit
