    For the first time in as long as I can remember I have the house to myself until tomorrow night. All four kids and the wife are gone. I don't know what to do with myself.

    I want to go try and stick one in the morning I just can't seem to motivate myself. I have only seen a handful of deer in the woods this year and that is playing on my mind, in addition all the hunting forecasts look pretty dismal. I know they probably dont mean a whole heck of a lot but they do boost my confidence level and help me stay in the tree longer.

    At the same time I am telling myself, I would pay for this opportunity on most occasions and the season end is drawing near. I am threatened with tag soup for the first time in several years. I am thinking I will sleep in, that is about 730-8 for me, then go climb a tree. Can't kill one from the couch.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Well a bad back is worse than no motivation that's for sure. My wife had surgery last week and she is finally feeling good enough to go have a girls night and watch some sappy movies with her gf's and she took the youngest with her. The other three are with their other dad. I just don't know what to do woth myself. Normally I have this type thing planned out but this time was unexpected.

    I had everything plan out until today around 11 when my back went out. I can't walk hardly at all so she puts me in bed with remote tea and a bottle to pee in said she be back in the moring. I have this ram to cut up an can't do that right now.

Give me a shout, if I don't answer its cause I'm in the woods with no service and I will shout back as soon as I get back in service.

    No wife...no kids...no question. I'm in the woods. I can relate to the lack of motivation but well I just think it's like fly fishing...each cast you just can't help but wonder..."is this the one" and then it happens when you least expect it. As for me I'm about tanked out with spreading corn and hanging stands but tomorrow and possibly with some snow I got at least one more week in me. If I tag something then I have lots to be thankful for and if I don't no time wasted in my book! Get the heck out there cuz this might be the cast!

    I talked myself into going. Went from 10 to dark and didn't see a hair. Typical of my season.......

    Sorry that you didn't see anything...had many of those experiences this year. I found a new place to hunt up here in Bella Vista and hunted it this morning...saw 8-10 does around 9:15. Super quiet. Totally snuck up on me and as a result I spooked them off. The wind was blowing perfectly from the Northwest and as luck would have it they went southeast right into my scent. Oh well there's always tomorrow! Don't give up. When it happens all of those no-deer sits are long forgotten.
