I hunted by myself today. That made for a long day. The wind howled all day. Thankfully, it wasn’t very cold. I got to where I wanted to sit before daylight and had a big doe feed past me around 8:15. I was tucked into a tree trunk, and she never knew I was within 20 yards of her. It was cool to watch her do her thing.

I aimlessly wandered through the woods the rest of the day, but I had one of the more productive days I’ve had in a long time. I came upon a few scrapes, but they weren’t anything significant, probably a couple of bucks that were feeling a burst of testosterone. I also found a few rubs.

The best thing I found today was an area where deer have been bedding regularly, which is something you very rarely come across in big woods. A short distance from all of the beds, I found there signpost trees. The trees haven’t been hit in a few years, but they are still there, which leads me to believe some big bucks travel through that area regularly.

I might hunt there a few times later in the year if  I can fit it into my schedule.
