2:39 PM LIVE from Ct*
Time to check in on a 10 acres property I have access to in Southbury. First time in stand this season. The SW neighbor told me he is seeing increased deer activity in daylight. I could not go this morning but I am here now. Let the deer come. Light West wind, sunny, and so far squirrel and birds activity galore. Very few acorns on the ground but this is a transition area anyways.
East view on wetland now swampy
North view where terrain is drier but steeper
Good luck I got out for a. Couple of hours too first time here this year we call it the swamp
South view. Dryer terrain with thicker bush, aka master bedroom.
Finally the West view. Uphill, dry, and thick.
Good luck to you too Steve. The squirrels are dropping acorns here all around me.
GL Guys!!! Great day to be out
GL. Feels good out. Geese have already started flying. I'm in a transition area and my son is on a field edge.
Sun is behind the hill. It is getting colder. So far nothing larger than a squirrel moved.
Put my jacket on quiet nothing yet here
Same here 0
Four does came strolling by 10 minutes before closing time. All walked 15 yards to my left as seated, next to the ladder stand. Hard shot from 21 feet up. Very steep angle. The arrow entered the largest doe body on the upper 1/3 and exited clean on the opposite side lower 1/3, taking both lungs out. She ran about 60 yards and fell next to a tree. The drag was a hard 500+ yards thru swamp, uphill, over and under fallen trees. I just got home and gutted her. I will butcher tomorrow as she was quite stiff (rigoris mortis) and I do not want to cut into the meat until muscles relax. Sore back but I did not leave the guts behind. I think I am going to concentrate on some turkey hunting. The neighbor told me earlier that he had 35 turkeys roosting on his corral fence yesterday. Thanksgiving work begins now. Target acquired.

The photo ... or else it did not happen. Man, it is so hard to get used to small area hunting after Colorado. My feet were restless all the time while sitting. At least the drag was good.
You're a hunting machine!!! Congrats Bud!!!!
I learned from the best here on Bowsite.com. A little every season, It took me 3 years to get my first deer on the ground with the bow. It didn't happen until I paid attention and took notes from what other hunters offered as advice.
