I picked my dad up, and we headed out for the morning. Since we didn’t have much time, we decided to stay fairly close to home. I went back to the stand I left at the base of the tree last night. I’m not sure why, but I expected to see deer today. Once again, I didn’t see anything. Dad didn’t see anything, either. We had a great morning to hunt. It was cool, overcast, and we both figured the deer would be on the move. Although they may have been on the move, they weren’t moving where we happened to be hunting. On our way out, we heard a few deer blowing at us, but we didn’t see them. The area appeared to have a lot of sign in and around it, but it’s so hard to tell how much sign there really is because of the amount of rain we’ve had in recent weeks.

Brian took his girlfriend’s son out today for the youth weekend. They were lucky enough to get a little spike. Derek was really excited and couldn’t believe the amount of adrenaline he had coursing through his veins afterward. It’s always good to get kids started when they’re young. If you introduce them to hunting, they can make the choice when they’re older if they want hunting to be a part of their lives.
