0600hrs 42 degrees clear and wind coming up to 18-20mph from west.

Sat on east facing ridge looking into my flooded creek timber. Where I hunt sometimes is under 10ft of water. hunted upstream and watch a beaver in creek dragging leaves and grass into a bank den for a hour. Saw no deer in bottom at all. Did happen to see two bucks when I was coming out under powerline cut in brush. Will take some says for this water to get lower. Some colder weather will help as well.

Crows chasing and harassing redtailed hawk, beaver and a huge fat raccoon which climbed up into a hollow hackberry tree.

0500, 27 degrees, zero wind, high wispy clouds/clearing

Great morning. Hunted with my good buddy. Nice 3/4 mile walk in in half dry leaves. Hunted an east facing ridge. Right at 0630 the gray squirrels were out in force. I could see them in every direction I looked. Crows were flying at 1st light. Deer had been in the area I was in under the red oaks but just not this morning.
We stayed til just after 0900 as we had other tasks to get completed to hunt further toward end of week. Good walk out over and down the ridge and thru the creek.

HH,

Great thread.  Thanks for posting and keeping your story going.  Also, thanks for your service.  I've been in uniform and now serving the Army as a DA Civilian for the last 43 years.  Not a Ranger though, so at least I still have my knees :)  You give me hope that I can figure out tree stand hunting before it's really too late for me.

Beautiful bows too.

Thank you Ted.

Like to get out in woods a lot but after the hunt there's chores and meat to attend to. So, yesterday was one of these days. I took and care of my deer from a couple days ago with some help. Had to take care my good friends boned out shoulders and trimmings that were in fridge.

Stopped at Food Lion and saw they had pork butt on sale so I grabbed 3ea. Headed to farm to grind deer and mix 25-30% pork in for burger and for brats making later in winter. Had some great help and after only 4-5hrs it was done.

Shared a nice looking backstrap with guys who helped me out and my buddy picked up his 20lbs of packaged burger on way home from the deer stand. I noticed legs hanging out his side by side on trailer in dark. I told him as a joke "next time your in the kitchen cutting wrapping, grinding, sealing and us fellas are hunting"!

I finished off my last Brats last week. Everyone who ate them wherever we went this past year really liked them. Great eating sausage. Just have to take them off heat earlier than pure pork brats. Like mine medium cooked. Had lots of them in hunting camp and many over fire pit at TO all year for quick lunch. Mix it up Deer burgers, then deer brats. Never get tired of them.

Good hunting

Looking at a pic of this little static I hunt with. Almost a year old now.

Hedge,
Really enjoyed reading through these posts. Thanks for taking me along this hunting season. Haven't had much time myself this year so this helped fill the void. Steve

27 degrees, clear west wind 2/3ds waxing moon

Have been out doing some management work on his hunt farm. Have not bow hunted in a few days. Been out just not with bow.

Don't worry hog hunting has not even started yet and they put some new area's into bow only in GA where I hunt. So, we are not done by a longshot for 2019-2020 season.
