Well today's hunt is over. Glad to spend the day outdoors. Haven't had a relaxing day like this in a long time. Just wish the wind cooperated a little better. Temp actually got warmer as day went on and after dark it was the highest of the day at 62 degrees. Temps are supposed to stay in the low 60's overnight and tomorrow morning. Winds are supposed to be just as strong tomorrow.
All in all, we did see some deer. We saw 5 does and 2 young bucks. We took a break at noon to go eat at my in-laws (it's a tradition) and my nephew went on home after dinner. I went back out and immediately walked up on a young 8pt that I accidentally scared off.
The biggest pain is really not the wind,,, it's how the deer act in the wind. Even with it being the rut, they are skiddish and unsure. I did not hear many shots throughout the day either. Temp is supposed to get colder starting Monday so I'm keeping the fingers crossed.
Tomorrow's a new day, gonna wake back up nice and early and hit it hard again!
