Last nights report, 

Sat from 4:30pm on.... had only some squirrels in a hustle gathering acorns until about 5:50 when I heard a deer coming up from the lower thicket taking it's time making it my way. Just as it gets near I hear a second deer below walking then make a scrape, first deer clears brush walking past a mock scape I made earlier today and is a mature doe I know and has no fawns this year. I only used buck rut urine and I'm wondering if this is what triggered this buck to check does and make the scrape,  they came straight downwind of it. 2nd deer still unseen works slowly up hill and I get a glimpse of horn but I think it's a small buck and relax still in thick stuff at 20y. Doe walks off thru my shooting lane buck still hidden,  all of a sudden he comes clear and I'm full draw immediately then he quick steps it towards doe at 15 y I bleat he paused and I release..... in that last few seconds of him clearing into view I was at draw and shooting knowing it was a good buck it's crazy how fast it happened. Buck runs off and I heard it stumble in distance but I decided I wanted to go back to house and get my son to help track and drag.  Now by time I get my son it's dark but tracking was easy and we found him in 75 yards, buck was definitely better than i thought as i only had an instant to judge from him coming into view to shot was only a few yards. 

After my long winded story here is my summary,  the October lull is over and bucks have entered the Pre-Rut seek and checking doe groups phase. It's on boys!

Sat out this morning from 6 until 1045 when it started to drizzle. And truthfully, I was under dressed and starting to get cold. One small six snuck in behind me at 35 yards at 8:30, but otherwise no movement.

I cannot complain, the two times that I've sat in this stand I've seen bucks. Have to connect sometime.....

The boy and I spotted 1 buck this morning, he just casually walked through.  He’s late to the party!

I am considering taking off of work friday.  Going to be much cooler than the day before and should quit raining overnight.  Only kicker is 10-20mph winds with higher gust. how do you guys fair in the wind normally? Hard to tell if that foretasted wind will slow movement.  Worth the PTO day?  Hoping bucks will be on the move
