The weather finally took a turn, and it finally feels like hunting season. I’m not sure how long it will last, though.

I ran into my old stomping grounds today on the east shore of Lake George in the Lake George Wilderness area. My buddy Dan’s group killed two nice bucks yesterday in the general area, so I knew the bucks were on the move.

Right off the bat, I found some good buck sign. I spotted a fair number of rubs and scrapes, which surprised me for this area. Usually there aren’t many rubs or scrapes there, even though the deer frequent the area. It really grabbed my attention and now has me considering spending more time there rather than going further north.

The only camera I had in the woods gave me good results. I got three different bucks on video, and one of them is a good one that I would consider shooting if an opportunity presents itself.

I’m not sure when I will be back on here. I’m headed to the Midwest this coming weekend and won’t return for a few weeks. The weather doesn’t look good at all. It’s calling for temperatures in the high 70s and low 80s, and that’s the bad part about having a normal job where I have to schedule my vacation time in advance. I’ll make the most of  a bad situation, but I don’t feel too good about it.
