    Yeah, I sure hope he has merely avoided the cameras this year and is around somewhere. The Mrs was going to hunt him pretty hard in early season before he took off this fall.

    Got the last two stands set on the Massey. Also got the last ladder stand tightened up and in shape for season. We have 5 more sets to go and a hay bale blind on various properties we hunt. We’re still in limbo about a couple of places and should find out in the next week if we will be able to hunt them this fall; that will make 2 or 3 more stands to get set. I try to have 2 stands ready for every wind direction, so we’re not stuck on a day off with no place to hunt because of a wrong wind.
    View out of the back plot ladder, though hard to see, there is actually quite a bit of clover in there. The plot starts about 10 yards out and stretches out to about 30 yards. That’s an old horizontal rub I tried a few years back, deer never touched it. Last year I stuck a landscape timber out in the plot and hung a scrape branch off of it and they hammered it all fall, they even began rubbing the timber and about pulled it out of the ground. Lol

    Louie is my loyal farm companion, it about kills him to be left at home when I take the truck and go hunting.

    This is a new set this year, we’ll have wheat in our ag field for the first time since we owned the place, the deer should pour into this field corner. A lot of the corn got flooded out after planting, so you can’t see it very well on the field edges.

    Here’s a look back toward the creek from the tree. I don’t like big shooting lanes in the timber, but I cleared a few small ones. 52795C0C-6A2E-44A4-9C90-F73F947E1669.jpeg

    One thing that was very encouraging, I took a look at the Allegheny chinquapins on the way out and they look surprisingly good. I hope the ones we put in the sanctuary are doing as well.

    Here’s a pic of the scrape branch I mentioned above, with the first culprit.

    Here’s what it looked like when he was done with it, not the same buck in the picture. This year I need to get the branch a little higher off the ground.

    This was it a few weeks later. Lol
