Today was incredibly windy. A steady wind of about 35 mph with gusts up to 50mph. It was 35 degrees this morning and warmed up to 60. I hunted on the far side of the big timber. I saw a small 7-pointer at 9am. It was so windy I had to get out of the tree because I was scared. This evening I sat in the Locust Draw stand. I saw two does and two fawns as well as a small raccoon. Dad saw a small 6-pointer this morning. Tonight he hunted buck alley. He saw a small buck and 5 does. Today wasn’t a very good day for deer movement. It was just too windy.

My friends Steve Sawn and Doug Coons scored on another Adirondack buck today. Steve got a nice little 3-pointer in what he calls the best piece of hunting land in an area called Hogtown. I think I have to agree with him on that statement. I was raised hunting on that same mountain. That’s where I learned a lot of the tricks of the trade. I couldn’t be more thankful to share that spot with Doug and Steve. We all have very fond memories of our family and friends sharing some great times in that area. Steve’s 3-pointer might not sound like much after reading about all of the deer in this journal, but the Adirondacks are a far cry from this. If you see a deer, let alone a buck it’s a great day in the Adirondacks. It’s hard to explain to people who have never experienced hunting there.

Another nice buck goes past the trail-camera.

Seems to be a lot of bucks moving at night with the full moon.
