I was out this morning and had 3 small buck come by between 6:40 and 7 AM. Within 3 yards of my stand. My friend saw 6 buck together. Another guy missed a big Doe. Lots of Deer moving today.

Woke up in the middle of the night with an enourmous ear ache. Wound up at the hospital with a bad upper resp. infection and an inner ear infection. :( No hunting until next weekend.

On stand 4:45 am and settled in by 5:15. 5:55, Shooting time in 15, WHAT the heck , some dude strolling in stinking up the path the deer will cross. I shine my light and he veers off 100yds up wind. I know anything going his way will turn. 11 am getting ready to call it quits when I spot a deer in front about 50 yds walking towards the other guy. Gets half way between him and I and starts acting nervous,tuns and walks bsack the way it came, then started heading away down the mountain. I hit my call twice and it turned, started towards me and stopped 35-40 yds out behind some brush. I hit the call again and put it away, getting ready for my 2nd doe. 15 yds AND it's a little buck:D, Well it was fun grabbing him in, and the other guy probably never even seen it. Well that's public hunting. They should have a rule, No roaming around 1/2 before-1 hour after sunrise. you snooze you loose. JMO.

2 weeks, don't tell me that. I got some potent antibiotic, not the normal stuff they usually give you and some drops that are supposed to numb your ear.

way to go LifeHog... I was out Saturday afternoon, and the weather was ok. around 5 it started to cool down. Had a 4pointer come in and didn't give me a shot. This 4 pointer looks to be 2 1/2 or 3 1/2 yr old. He has a small belly & his chest is starting to build up.He looks like a 4 pointer that keeped coming in on me last year.

Saturday morning I hunted in Montgomery Twp. Zone 12.... saw 2 doe. I had a clear shot on one of them at 35 yards, but wanted her to come in closer. She never did.

Saturday afternoon I hunted in Zone 5.... I did not see a hair.

Got out yesterday afternoon and sat in the sauna. Had a small rain shower come through which helped a little, but only saw a fawn and a few turkeys. Not much sign around either, I think it's still just too warm for them to move much.

Lifehog. You can skin that deer and butcher him. Just bring the head and hide to the check station. When I checked my Doe in on Sept 11 (Sunday) there was a guy there that had his head and hide. Can't take the chance of wasting a good Deer.

You also supposed to call the night you get home and leave your name,license and phone number, tell them the check station was closed and you had to skin it. But you have to call. I've always got a machine.
