AM Hunt - my morning hunt took place on a leased horse farm. I set up my stand in a funnel of thick brush between a marsh, hay field and two soybean fields. I blew out several deer on my way in and noticed lots of rub and scrape activity in this area.

At 7:30 AM this small buck (picture above) came out of the top soybean field and came right into my stand. He was exhibiting rut behavior and seemed to be cautiously trailing a doe. I had a 18 yard shot but on these leases it would be a sin to shoot a buck this small. I let him walk but that was the last deer I saw this morning.

 

PM Hunt - for the evening hunt Steve Rupert and I hunted together on the farm where I shot a nice buck in 1998. I went to the exact same tree and set up my BuckShot climber.

I saw no deer (close) this afternoon. Just before legal sunset I watched a buck chase a doe around a soybean field. It was good to see that the rut is starting to kick in here in Maryland. Steve's cousin Ron College shot a doe this afternoon, not far from where I hunted in the morning. It was Ron's first deer and he was pumped!
