Urban Decoy Hunt

Took the 71mi drive to the East Stand - a stand only good with an east wind. Temp is 57f, cloudy with mist. Temp isn't going change much the rest of hunt. ESE winds at 7mph couldn't be more perfect. Houses directly behind me about 100yds, Been hunting this property for 4yrs now, usually see deer each sit. Up 22ft in hang-on stand, not much cover. Decoy is 21yds to my slight left. Expecting deer to be traveling from my right to my left, but as we all know, a cruising buck can come from any direction. Camo laptop in backpack - still billable. Low to no expectations, but rather be in an outdoor office this afternoon. Any other Bowsiter's in the stand today, welcome to jump in, post your stuff. Video clip pans from my right to my left. Stay tuned

Question are the back legs on your decoy backwards?

Nothing worth bragging about. Second time using overall, first time this season. I decided to try after an encounter with a shooter buck last year and I feel the decoy would have brought buck within shooting range

Precipitation has picked up. Went from mist to drizzle to light rain

No movement since earlier today. Going to stick out the last hour, see what happens

Thats a wrap. The only thing that went right was the wind direction & rain gear. Good news is, tomorrow's a new day.

Thanks for following along
