I was finally able to sneak away for the first time in too long into the woods for a couple hours yesterday evening. I went over to one of my old spots in Loch Raven I had not hunted in a couple years. I should have known to never go somewhere I haven't scouted recently. Got in the woods and found a good area. I saw some sign and felt like I had as good as chance as any with a couple trails under me and a rub about 75 yards down the trail. Well the it was a prefect fall evening for hunting other than the WIND, it had my tree blowing around and bouncing into the tree next to it and it was literally making me dizzy and making me not want to be out. Regardless, I stuck it out and the only thing I saw all evening was a jogger whom likely chased any hope of me seeing deer away when he jogged through the woods between 6:20 - 6:50. The evening ended with me seeing no deer, being a little tree sick, and mostly deciding I made a poor choice on location and choice of tree's.
Otherwise it was a great evening in the woods and I am starting to see rubs and scrapes showing up more and more by the day. However, this is mostly all due to the full moon which is mid week and after this little bit of excitement, I think things will slow down again until late October when into November when rut will come in full tilt.
Anyone else out yesterday? How did you do?
Side note, WAY TO GO ORIOLES!!!! ALCS here we come!
