Default 1st and 2nd hunts of the season...

Well I was fortunate enough to get to go out hunting both Friday and Saturday evening. Fri evening I sat on stand in the woods and didn't see anything except for some young turkeys, a couple of ground hogs, and one pesky squirrel that about got shot with a bow. All in all, it was nice to be back in the woods for the first time this year. For what it's worth, I did hear two deer blowing about 300+ yds away.

On saturday night, I sat on a cut corn field and saw 3 does and 3 fawns all of which were about 150+ yds away. Thought one of the does and her twins were going to come my way, but they caught a smell of something and ran.

I'm just really down this year b/c there aren't any decent bucks on my property. It's hard to get in a good mood and go hunt when you know there's no bucks worth shooting and the only way there will be is probably a month and a half away when the rut hits.
