Time for the maiden voyage of the '19 season
« on: October 12, 2018, 03:25:17 PM »
Had an open calendar today so took the day off.  Temps dropped like a rock yesterday evening, got our first frost of the fall, and then today snow!  OK, no accumulation, but a steady snow the last couple of hours.  Got a bunch of errands done this morning and gear all ready, I'm heading out in about 15 minutes to see what I can see.  41 degrees and almost no wind, woods will be wet and quiet.  Maybe I'll get lucky and have something to report to you guys this evening.

No blood under my fingernails but wasn't a total loss.  It never really did quit raining until just before dark.  I took my climber to a spot where I expected deer to be funneling out into the corn stubble to feed in the evening but after a couple hours & getting pretty soggy I decided to sneak down & work my way back to the vehicle.  Had to check a big oak tree about 60 yards away first to see if it had a hen of the woods mushroom under it, and sure enough there was, so took it along with me (have found them at that tree before).  Got about halfway back & still had a little bit of shooting light so quietly crawled up into an old ladder stand near a logging road.  About ten minutes later caught some movement off to my left, a big deer was sneaking through the brush about 15 yards away, then a little one behind it.  based on the size of that deer I was shocked there weren't any horns, that might have been the biggest doe I've ever seen.  Didn't have a shot at her so just watched them disappear out in front of me, I think they got out into the cornfield.  Got dark about 15 minutes later so climbed down, grabbed my mushroom, and headed back to the suburban.  Got a little colder and wetter than I expected, but still beats being at work!

Yeah Yari, I know you guys have not really dried out up there.  Until about a week ago the farmers here were running flat out on corn & beans.  Very few beans standing yet and I would guess well over half of the corn is out as well.  The place where I hunt still has some standing corn, but he's picked everything along the tree line, the deer need to trot about 200 yds to get back into the standing corn.  We got about 3" of rain last weekend but then with some warm temps, sunshine, and a good breeze they were back in the fields again on Tues/Wed of this week - that rain got soaked up pretty quickly given our drought so they didn't have to worry about getting stuck.  Yesterday's rain will slow them down a couple of days again, but not long before everything here is picked clean.  Have even seen a couple of guys already out doing fall tillage work.  You're probably going to have guys driving through the snow to finish picking this year I expect.
