Anybody hunting today? I'm up a tree in Faulkner County. It's lightly raining now and the wind is pretty gusty at times. I hung this stand yesterday in the rain. This is right in the center of my property in a strip of hardwoods and I've never hunted here. I have a feeling either today will be really good or I'll just sit here and get wet. It's still a great day to be outside though! Good luck!

Been a heavy mist/light rain here all morning. Seems perfect. Seen a yote, two does and a dink so far. Dink was pushing one doe around a little.

When you start to get fed up with either lack of sightings, rain or wind, remember, I'd kill to be out there today. Seems perfect. Cool enough to keep the deer moving but not so cold you freeze to death

I sat in the stand for a while but couldn't imagine a deer walking through with as loud as the wind and rain were. I got down and stalked through the property. I walked within 30 yards of a 4 point and watched him for about 10 minutes. I grabbed my grunt and gave him a young buck grunt. Without even looking my direction, he immediately turned the opposite way and quickly walked off. I checked 4 cameras out there too and had very little deer activity last night. I'm sure as soon as the rain quits, they'll be moving everywhere.

I just got in the tree. Been here 30 min and seem 2 does. They came by me like they'd seen a demon or something. Not sure what that was all about. Thinking I may try some grunting and rattling and maybe even the can.

I just made a few grunts and hit the horns for about a min. 2 min later this 6pt showed up looking for a fight. They're gonna have to get bigger. May try it again in an hour
