Anybody made it out yet since the semi-cold arrived?

Congrats to those o you that have taken some eater deer! Good luck everyone on you upcoming hunts. They are starting to harvest corn here and the deer are hitting those fields hard. Lots of private land with most of them being leased at a price higher than I am willing to pay for a deer. Hoping to get out some when i am back in MO next week.

We were on a ridge line last Saturday in a state park and came across four of these guys without even really trying hard.

Yesterday there was a surprise. My daughter took this picture at 3 pm from the  kitchen window.

Here's a close-up.

My trail camera will be seeing if this guy and some of the others seen in the woodlot stick around while we are in Missouri.

That's 35-38 yards from the window to the deer. Hope that he sticks around after we get back.

Heck thats a manageable shot right out the window... You could take him out in your jammies LOL.

Our bedroom window is right above the kitchen window. May not even have to get out of bed😂

When we had coyotes in our back yard I had the crossbow propped next to our window LOL.  Never got a chance though...

They are hyper aware of change/movement to be sure...I have drawn on a few and they almost always get unnerved before I can release. Have some trail cam bobcat pics this year and maybe it will come sneaking by and I’ll observe his reaction....I called in a lion some years ago while turkey hunting and KNOW how they react.....😬.  He went one way, I went the other....

I had the chance at one of the biggest 8 pointers I have ever seen on Wednesday. Luckily I saw him and jammed on the brakes. :) 

He was standing on the center line of Hwy 13. I was lucky to spot him in time to slow down and get as far to the left as I could. I went by him at less than 20 mph while he just stood there and stared at me like I was an idiot. Never freaking moved.
