OK here's what happened today. I was setup for a hunt with a NW wind around 10mph. As I watched the area where I anticipated the deer approach 4 does came into the area from the NW with the wind. With all the snow on the ground I could see them coming for quite a ways. It was funny because they would walk with the snowfall and stop, paw the snow/ground up and eat a little then go again and so on. That confused me a little bit. I thought that they were running short on food supply and put caution aside for an acorn feast cuz thats where I was in a huge block of white oaks (thousands, I think?????). There are a few red oaks and poplars in the mix too. And the entire area was tore up from deer and turkey from days of pawing/scratching. And this is the first year of deer hunting that I'm armed with a computer w/internet to look up weather and aerial maps and all that for better planning. Not to mention a connection of hunting buddies from all over the country and then some for advice and insight. I don't know but do yall think that the deer just needed to feed so bad that they just said heck with it lets live dangerously one time. They came from a creek bottom filled with pines and bamboo and beavers and swampness. The white oaks are the only real serious block in the entire area for many miles and there's a huge cut corn field back down and across the creek and up another ridge about a mile or more away. What do you think?----------------------- I didn't shoot because I kinda used that situation as an observation type deal.
