I used the grunt. I waited and tried the bleat. I rattled. Nothing.
I got a text from Hubby a little before 8 that he would walk up to me in a little bit. That was followed by a text saying that two does were walking straight AT him, up one of the new shooting lanes. He was on watch for a buck. The does walked right next to T3, unaware that Hubby was sitting there. They were on a mission though and headed my way!
I never saw them. Hubby walked up and we split up to make two large circles ending up where Dad was sitting. This was the first time that I was still hunting this season.

Hubby reported sighting of two does and Dad reported two hunters walking up, almost to him, before they realized someone was sitting there and turned around. Seriously! We have permission to be on that piece of land plus it abuts our own land. What is with people thinking that they can do anywhere they want?!?!
After lunch, we went over to the mountain and sat for a few hours. It was peaceful (aside from the wind) to be back where it had all started; the first tree house and where I shot my first deer.

We probably shouldnt have (we will see when we look at the trail camera pics tonight) but we called it a day early. There was no point in trying to stay out late when nothing as moving and even if it was, you couldnt hear it.
So, another weekend in the books and now, it is starting to get into crunch time. This weekend is supposed to be windy as well with a cold front moving in. Maybe that will get the deer moving and feeding a little more. I am hoping that when I check the trail cameras today, there is more movement on them!
