I got out last Friday afternoon for an eventful hunt. Wind was blowing hard in the 20mph range. I carefully walked into a section of woods where there was a stand overlooking some oak trees where the deer like to feed. Snow was on the ground and it was COLD so I figured at some point they'd be feeding.

Well, I was quite surprised when I spotted them from about 80 yds out already underneath the stand at only 2:45pm ish. There was some good cover and I had the wind slightly to my advantage as a cross wind that was blowing just slightly off so they weren't getting my scent. I stalked and moved up to within 60 yards as there was a fence with brush grown into it that would act as a screen and I could hide behind and possibly get a shot. Unfortunately, I think they busted me and must have got my wind as I moved up and didn't have the slightly off wind anymore.

I was really surprised to see the 3rd deer running off was a buck and possibly the 4 year old I've been after on this farm. Interestingly enough, the does circled around back, didn't come within bow range. It's bow only for buck at this time so I was only hunting with the bow.

Based on what I saw Friday, I am going to go back to that area the next cold snap we get. This time I'm gonna get in a lot earlier though as they were active a lot earlier than usual with the snow and cold.

Got a late start this morning, been fighting a touch of the crud as well as the sting of a miss last week (with a rifle, how does that even happen :oops:). Have been on stand for about an hour with the muzzleloader, 20 degrees and light snow. Passed a three year old 8 point a few minutes ago. He’s been highly visible these past few weeks, that was the third time I’ve seen him in three hunts in this area and I know my dad has seen him a few times. Hopefully he will have around til next fall and put on a little more tine length and mass.

Last day of the season here in Kentucky. Trying to fill once more doe tag and fill the freezer just a little more.

Been a great season in no small part to the Hunting Beast.

Taking advantage of a rare weekday sit thanks to the snow and ice knocking power out at my office. High of 26 today and still have most of yesterday mornings snow hanging around. Sitting my favorite bedding area, only second time I’ve sat it all year with the first being back in October. Only one buck tag left after Sunday’s kill and only one known candidate on either of my private lands that I’m willing to use it on. I’m in his core area, maybe I’ll get to play some string music to him.

Thanks turned out awesome i need practice setting up with sticks i used my saddle so it was comfy got some geting used to it though the aiders scare me cant get boot in them easily.
I should have probably pushed up the point a little bit further. Had a really big deer come from the point and stop and bed 20 yards from me between me and the point so i diddnt go up point far enough. Its shotgun here and there wer guys out so the deer knew it. Im pretty sure it was a buck with no horns it was behind a tree and i coudnt see his head only the ring around his nose and white in his ears he laid there all night. I had to shake a branch to get him to leave. He never knew i was there.
I thought it was a complete success. I scouted it a month ago found couple beds on tip of point. Came back and sat it and seen a big bodied deer so i think im on the right track. Thanks to dan and all of you guys. Monday tuesday and wednesday next beast hunts then im done
Get ready to meeat the bbsk saturday im so pumped
