I've seen several does, but only one buck that jumped without opportunity for a shot. This is the first year in many that I haven't had an any-deer permit. That makes it a bit tougher, even to get a buck, because antlers must be seen before shooting.
I've hunted almost every day this month, but wind, rain, higher temps, bright moonlit nights, three grandkids hunting with me at various times, plus being a somewhat lazy-er hunter than in the past have diminished my chances. Bucks have been mostly nocturnal so far, but the rut is starting, so we'll see.
To make matters worse, I found a round rash on my upper leg today...could be Lyme disease.
People are like rifles. Some are tried and true, having great eyes, personality, and fun to be with. Others never seem to hit the mark with you. Still others go off half-cocked. Still, it's nice to know most of them.
