    Doing a public land hunt in a wma this weekend
    saw 3 doe at 10a. Nada the rest of the day

    i moved to my evening stand at 3p
    I was set up on a swamp with the wind in my face.
    I was hoping the hunters further east would push the deer my way.
    but at 2:55 p I saw a hunter standing under my set, then walked into the swamp heading into the wind 😡

    I saw nothing.

    here’s dinner

        Shit. I'm camped at the staff barracks of my range.
        It's an old abandoned prison.
        I saw three good sized deer last night.

        Public land hunting is not for the faint of heart. Persistence yields rewards.
        Don’t give up, man.

          kicked a buck up walking in
          skeeted the bajeezuz out of him
          He was bedded along the swamp edge I was walking along
          I bet I got 20’ from him. There was zero wind so he didn’t know what I was. And just stood in the brush.

          eventually he walked away.

          Saw a small buck at 225 yards. My bow range is 40
          The. n it got windy (14 mph). I was standing up in the stand and with the tree rocking back and forth, even if a legal animal came into range I couldn’t shoot straight.
          Then it was 83 degrees. I said screw this. I’m not doing the evening hunt.
          Came home.
          Blew a trailer tire 2 miles from the house.

          Entire weekend they killed 3 doe and a hog.
          3 guys limited on whistlers.

          I talked to Levi he says “Dad, you saw 4 deer and walked up on and unknown deer in the dark. On public land…I’d call that a success”.
