im tired, i sat in the tree so long my butt and legs are numb. its better to hunt than go to work. i enjoy being outdoors. i did not see a deer till 11:50am (4 doe) and about 30 mins before dark (3 doe). next thursday i will probably be able to do another full day.

bad day of hunting beats a good day of work.

I saw 1 spike around 630am this morning and then had 5 does all over me for about an hour. we have seen 2 good shooters using this area so i was waiting on one of them to walk out. next week i am going to move one of my stands to a location high up the mountain. ive been putting it off because i dread the climb. but everytime i get there i see some good deer.

If I see just one deer everytime I'm out I'm a happy camper, well, regardless if I do see anything I'm happy to be alive and well out enjoying Gods country and creations. Hang in there Buck you'll do fine. If you need advice just ask. There's 9,000,000,000,000,000,000 saavy deer hunters here on the forum just waiting to spill their guts (deer too). LOL JK

this is probably too late to post this But If you're moving a stand up the mountain, I'd stop midway and set-up there...
when hunting mountains It's usually better to hunt midway up rather than the very top or the very bottom
midway always seems to be the hot spots on mountains. Good Luck..
