“I didn’t sleep at all last night”. Isn’t that a song?
My first Muzzle loader hunt of season and it’s not starting as planned. Finally gave up trying to sleep at 3am and went to the stand. Rain forecast at 5 so I tried to beat it. Got wet. Laid on hard blind floor from 5 till daylight(715) and tried to sleep. Didn’t work. Not that cold for one cotton later and my go to light jacket but I got wet. Not freezing but not comfy.
Close to daylight so we will see. Sitting on 80 ac wheat field that’s just starting to come up and don’t know if they using yet or not.
I may not be the smartest hunter but I don’t lack effort…..


At some point in life its time to quit chasing the pot of gold and just enjoy the rainbow. FR

Best of luck. It will hopefully pay off I love hunting the rainy days. Always remember even a bad day in the woods is still worth it to me.

With the muzzle loader are you looking for meat or horns? Good luck on which ever you are after.

Horns, BIG horns. Does will come with xbow-I need the practice.
And, yes, worst day hunting is better than the best day working(I got the sweat shirt that says so). .

Good luck. I will say this. You've got a better chance getting a buck being cold and wet in the stand, than warm and dry at home.

You have to remember, they might not be drinking as much as we are.

Good luck but I think the no sleep got him when the sun hit him. Best sleep ever when you wake up wandering what day it is in a stand,,

Starting a guessing game until he wakes up. 85 yards is my guess.

Beautiful morning in the stand.
I'm jealous freerange!

Good luck
Hope you got one picked out to hunt this year


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Ouch missed that a lot. Thought the tree on the right might be at 20 yards to base my guess off of.

This doe came in early to the regular feeder but not much left over from the morning. Hit my remote control on the mobile feeder and she came over.

This regular came running when the regular dinner bell went off.
He had a bad accident in velvet apparently and I think he’s been sickly. Been watching him two prior years and hoped this would be the year. Look close and you can see his beam and another point wrap back around his head.
