I knew I had to get in the woods today because it was the coolest day of the hunting season so far. However, the wind was howling at a pretty good clip. I hunted with Kentucky today, and we went into an area with a lot of oaks in the southern Adirondacks. I knew a good place to send him where I’ve had a lot of action in the past, so he headed in that direction. I hunted on the back side of the mountain from him in hopes of walking up on a feeding deer in the oaks or a bedded one due to the wind.

After a few hours of still-hunting, I packed it in and began my journey back to the truck. I had the “feeling” tonight. I was almost certain that I was going to walk up on an unsuspecting buck, especially in the areas that I traversed. I purposely set my route ahead of time, so I could hunt across many oak flats and through other oak groves. In all reality, I didn’t see much sign. I did find a few rubs here and there, and I saw where a few guys had sat in recent times.

I most likely won’t get out much the rest of the week. It won’t bother me, as the weather is headed back into the high 70s. I just can’t get into it when it’s that hot out. I’m sure the deer still roam the hills, but I don’t like to be all sweated up when I’m trying to be stealthy.

Here are a few pictures from today’s adventure.
