9/24 outing


Since the rain finally stopped for a few hours, and I got out of work a little early I headed out into the woods.

I will admit I was running a little later than I would have liked, but I still made it into the woods by 5pm.  I chose a location in Loch Raven that I hunt fairly often since I was running late.

Below is a picture from my stand.

I saw lots of birds and squirrels between 5 – 7pm but no deer, finally around 7:15 as the sun was setting, I heard something coming from beyond where I could see.  When it finally got to me just before dark I saw that it was just a large red fox which spent 10 minutes around me walking back and forth. I think she was lost? Haha

Beautiful night in the woods, but yet another bust on the hunt for deer, so I think I will try yet another area this week in hopes of finding some deer that the weather has not affected.

I would also like to note the area I was hunting looked like someone else had been hunting this morning, so perhaps they spooked the deer. The deer in that area are very spooky anyway because it is a travel area not a feeding location.

I really hope the weather is better this week and work slows down some, that way I can share more and HOPEFULLY better experiences.

Did you hunt this weekend? How did you do?? We would love to hear from you or see pictures from your weekend hunts!

    Well I got out Saturday afternoon. Got in the tree about 1:00pm. Saw one doe at 7:15. It was brutal...humid, bugs everywhere. I'm ready for some colder weather!!

      Gino, Your trip sounds very similar to mine. I think the bugs were the worst I have ever had them in the 15 years thaf I have been hunting. I only got a few hours in the woods, you were there a lot longer so I can only imagine how bad the bugs were for you! I am right there with you, between the bugs and how humid it was, it was sorta like torture, so I am ready for cold weather as well!! I hear colder weather for this up coming Saturday, sadly I have to work this Saturday :-( If you get out good luck!
