Pre-rut is in

  1. Saw several more deer again this morning. I had two does come in that I though about taking but neither presented the shot despite being within 8-yards. I saw a buck try to move in on a doe but she jumped away. I also saw a couple scrapes while coming out.

    I went back in the mid-afternoon. Within minutes after a little grunt & rattle a decent 5-point came in. I was in the stand less than 45-minutes. He gave me a 12-yard shot. Double lunged 'em, waited 40-minutes then found him about 80-yards away. It's all good...!!!

    His neck was slightly swollen but the tarsel glands didn't have a strong smell.

    Shoot straight. Hunt safe. Good luck.
