Not in any particular order but just when I am so hyped for deer season, the Berlin Wall crumbles.

1)My mom's health is bad
2)Feeders battery is down, so no slinging
3)4 deer total on my game cam. One of which is a small basket 8. That is as good as it gets right now.
4)cameras are not working.
5)second feeder destroyed timer. We had to run into Sweetwater and purchase an entire unit with barrel, timer etc.
6)hit a mesquite stump and shredded a back tire moving a blind.
7)wasps are nemeses
8)I have seen more cows then deer thus far
9)the guy who placed his feeder just ONE week prior to the season has a boat load of deer on his cam. I have been feeding since March, just an FYI
10)I have not had time to sling ONE arrow, disgusted at myself.

I hope your list is better. This is just a thread to brighten your hunting season, cause if could be worse folks bang

Don't believe in luck, but whenever I hear someone complaining about things of this world, I always try to
Remind them it can get a lot worse....

I know you are just ranting and I have done my fair share of ranting about hunting this year (too warm, too wet, too much green, too many cows, food plot hot wire needs another strand to keep baby cows out, too many neighbors keeping deer away, etc etc), so I will second that things should get better. If anything a regression back toward the norm.

But it could get a lot worse too...it's all about perspective up

You could be looking out the window at work watching a nice 8 chase does around at about 600 yards.
Knowing you can't do a thing about it bang

Sounds like mine so far:

1. No opportunity to even go out during bow season. Finally got my stand up the night before the rains came in the next morning.

2. Opening weekend had to work Saturday, until the boss called to say "go on home" ... around 4:30 PM

3. Last Friday, had to drive 3.5 hours to my Mom's to make certain she made her Doc appointment.

4. Out of town on family this weekend through the first of December, then up to DC for work until the 15th.

I'd just like to sit in a stand ONE day, that's all, just one!

welcome to life - been there done that. Older you get you realize that bad days make the good days even sweeter. When Cr** goes wrong I just have learned to smile and laugh it off and wait for the good days. Hang in there

I hope you're mother gets better ... prayers sent

The thing about luck is it can all change in the matter of a second. A season full of mishaps and no deer can turn into the best season of your life if mister big steps out. I hope things start improving for you soon.

Prayers for your mom.
Skim coat & primed the kitchen, dining room & entry way. Will put orange peel texture on Tuesday. It's going to rain buckets here anyway. Hope your luck changes, I will try my luck Wednesday morning.

Prayers headed up for your mother.
It's been an interesting season for me as well, since bow season started I've lost a very good friend and an aunt, so it's tough.
At the lease, normal things happen: feeder gets wrecked by raccoons just before bow season; opening morning find out the rain storms between Halloween and now have knocked my solar panel connections off the feeder battery so it's inop opening morning; along with feeder issues with all the rain my camera batteries got drained (had over 400 pics of the recent rain storms) so bucks I did see this past weekend I have no pics of; and the LED light bar on my hunting buggy is only half working once again due to rain, replacement will hopefully be here soon . These things happen and come with hunting, life happens enjoy the moments when the sun breaks through those clouds and God shows favor on you, we only get one life so enjoy those great moments brother!


Don't take life so seriously, you'll never make it out alive!

Praying for your mother.

You sound like you hunt in piney woods of east Texas! haha. He the next day could be the day you absolutely NEVER know. I follow some of the same troubles. A lot of the time I feel like I dont get the due return compared to my efforts when it comes to hunting. But thats hunting. I dont hunt a high profile place and sometimes go 2 or 3 years without getting a buck. I have literally had a feeder out for 2 months and seen next to nothing and then go pull the card and had 4 LEGIT bucks on there coming all during the day. Things can change on a dime. Stay positive and stay focused !
