Thermal hog hunting last night. Typically see 2-3 deer on this property a night. Barely have seen any deer since Oct 9. Counted a 12-15 for a period of 4 hours last night. 3 different times I thermaled 3 different bucks locking horns. Bucks were chasing does.
When I was leaving (midnight) I was being really quiet. I had to drive my car through half the property. Expected all the deer to run off. Turned my thermal on the gate as they typically do. Nope. They kept feeding, chasing each other around.
Not a big deer hunter but it was fun seeing the action. Call in sick and tag your deer!
