The bucks are definitely on the move and I’ve had a number of close calls. On Thursday I managed to close the book on a five year relationship with a big four point. he’s been a real brute for years, weighing at least 200 lbs or better every year. On Thursday he came in hobbling on three legs. He apparently had damaged his right leg somehow. I’m not exactly sure how. I had the privilege of putting him out of his misery. Video is available in the Deer 2018 gallery. Stay tuned…

The joy has gone out of hunting for the time being as a result of Hurricane Florence. Not because of any flooding or wind damage but because of the horrendous mosquito infestation which resulted from all the rain we had. Thank goodness for thermacells without which you could not stay in the woods. However, thermacells do little to protect you while going in to your stand or returning from it. It’s during that time that the mosquitos will attack! Folks this is a problem that won’t go away anytime soon. Get used to it! Later…

Man, just as I’m finally beginning to see some decent bucks, at least on trail camera, we have to contend with hurricane Florence. Although it looks like we may not get the high winds originally forecast it looks like we may get a LOT of rain, and that can be just as devastating. The flood of 2015 basically ruined the season and I sure hope we don’t see a repeat of that. The one thing we have going for us is the fact that we are very dry right now and can handle a lot of water. I’m praying we miss the worst!! Later…

As Bruce Buffer ( UFC Announcer ) would say, ” Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit’s Tiiiiiiiiiiiiiime”!!! Bow season opens in just two weeks- Wow! You better have your stands up and have started some limited feeding if you want to see what’s out there. I’ve got a couple of decent bucks on camera so far but I’m expecting, or at least I’m hoping for, more to show up this week. Man, if this year will be just half as good as last year I’ll be happy. Stay tuned…….
