Hunted Sunday evening into Monday evening. Was a really pretty couple of hunts. All photos were taken via cell phone, some with the aid of binos.

Sun hit the deer really well Sunday evening, and the supermoon rising was hard to catch but I gave it an attempt.

Had a decent 8 chasing tail for a long while. He got all bent out of shape when a broken up 12 pt older buck walked past him and his lady

The view of the moon when I got out of the blind

Monday mornin was a foggy mess. Couldn't see much past about 100 yards, and it was a weird mix of light from the moon setting and sun rising mixing with the fog. Lots of doe with babies, but no buck sightings

As the moon was setting behind the trees a deer walked right past my blind about 30-40 yards out

Once the moon set and the sun rose things got really bad as far as visibility with the extra sunlight creating a lot of glare through the fog. Didn't affect the deer one bit. Compare to the pic above, same line of trees but visibility is cut nearly in half

Monday morning and evening I had the same yearling walk out from 10 feet behind me downwind. In the am it walked in front of my blind about 10 feet away, took me by surprise as I hadn't seen deer come from that location while sitting in this blind. He walked straight out toward the feeder in the evening and didn't seem to know I was there

The sunset was amazing

And the moon coming up this evening was simply amazing as well. The cell pics didn't do it any kind of justice

great pictures. love the swollen neck on that buck.
That doe in picture #1 is in really nice condition- fat as a town dog!
