I know alot of you hate the late season doe hunts. But I hope I can take advantage of this snow to go put one down. I need all the help I can get. Hope I can be getting at it in a couple of hours.

Good luck stash!

I’m grinding out an all day sit. Have only seen a spike and an unknown thus far. A year ago today in the same tree, similar weather, I’d seen well into double digits at this time. Not sure what’s going on here today, but the rut should be ramping up so it could happen at any second. I can hear all the duck hunters headed in to the boat ramp so hopefully the deer will be stirring after the commotion ends.

Car had a flat. The air chuck is in Lil Bro's truck being worked on in the shop. But when he got home he asked if I wanted to go hunting with him.

Headed to a spot close to home. Figured the ice would be thick enough so headed to an isolated ridge of higher ground. I did get 1 foot wet though.

1 small deer track seen. But a couple of coyote tracks. So 0 deer again.

Did see some good buck sign including some spots that have to be beds. For sure gonna give it my all to get back in there for a more complete scout.

Not gonna hunt tomorrow. This ole dog is plumb wore out. Put on what was for me 1 1/2 tough miles. But I'm smiling because I feel like I went on a real adventure. Great afternoon with Lil Bro!

A doe, two fawns, and a forker. All to far. Does are fair game for me in December to try get more archery kills/experience under my belt. I decided that I would hold off on using my either sex tag on a doe until December this year, and it’s December :lol:

Had a doe come by around 4 and that was it for the afternoon. Wind was squirrely all day. Wish I had saved this spot for tomorrow’s weather.

Out with that on some public today. He picked a spot pretty close to the truck, to avoid leg cramps later in the evening. He saw four pointer but couldn't get his sights lined up with the weeds. Ground pound. Muzzleloader.

I went pretty far and scooped around from the back side. I decided to do some still hunting with a Muzzleloader today. Pretty calm wind in the morning, and I crested a ridge and had a buck bolt out of there really fast. It was exciting but no shot happened. In the afternoon we went to another spot the wind kicked up and it snowed all afternoon. No deer seen. We didn't even see any driving out which is rare. The wind was really blowing, and this is the first snow for us here.
If it's comfortable, then you're probably doing it wrong...

Sorry, I should have proof read. It should have said out with Dad on public today.

Traded the bow out for the muzzleloader this morning and hit a property that I’d only ever scouted once. Was setup just off the transition from hardwoods to small timber on a corner thinking they’d hug the edge. Not long after daylight I had a buck chase a doe, grunting every step. They were just into the thicket enough that I couldn’t see them. At 9, another deer cruised by. Could see legs on this one, but never head.

Got down at noon and scouted that area out quickly and picked out a possible kill tree.

On the other side of this property now. In a hardwood bottom that was selected cut last year. Green grass and growing, and brush piles and tree tops laying everywhere.
