    They were moving this afternoon in the snow.. had 3 does come in at 4 o'clock at 25 yards got busted lifting the bow up they took off..30 minutes later 4 more were coming in until a coyote came and chased them off. Then saw some more that were making their way to me but didn't get to me by dark... thought the weather would put them on their feet I was right just couldn't capitalize on it.. other than today they have been completely nocturnal

    IMO, deer are nocturnal, I will never believe this crepuscular stuff. Their eyes glow just like all other Nocturnal creatures. Sometimes they move during legal light and we get one.

    My daytime pics are starting to pick up. The last few weeks though, have been terrible.

The feeder in the hollow gets hammered nightly, very few day shots. The feeder in my back yard which was hammered all during the day gets corn piled up and all I get is shots of turkeys. I already have gobblers strutting around all jacked up. No deer action on the feeder in the open even at night. Looking like I have 2 birds pushing 18 to 20 lbs. I'm trying to get ACORNS......maybe they are the answer.
    Im in no hurry. I got 2 mature bucks this year so I really dont need to take another

    Relocate. Or get out before the next storm front. They may get them on the move early.

    That's what everyone is saying. I don't use cameras. They are a waste. Show you everything you won't kill.
    Enjoy life. It has an expiration date.
