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!
