It was supposed to rain hard tonight. I thought that the deer may move a little earlier so I had my wife's mother pick up Kasey and I went hunting. I sat in the stand near the scrape I have been getting pics at. At about 5 pm I heard two soft grunts behind me. I turned to see a decent 8pt in the small ravine behind me (not where I expected a deer to come from). I grunted back softly with no response. He worked through behind me from my left to right. After It got dark, several deer ran circles under my stand. I could barely see anything but knew that buck must have been chasing a doe around. The buck was not a buck I have had any pics of, he was smaller racked 8 point. The rut is getting close!

I have had a camera out at few scrapes as the rut approaches and I am getting quite a few pics. A few different bucks, although at this point many of them are younger bucks. This spot is a tree that always has scrapes under it, but none had been made yet. I made a mock scrape myself but did not use any scent, I just scraped out the dirt.

I have wanted to find a way to share hunting stories, accounts, and info with the people I know. I have been doing this by email, and by text messaging when I am actually out hunting. I created this blog so that we can all come to a common place and read each others stories. I will update this blog whenever I can, and will include info from my hunts, as well as comment on any equipment I may be using and I hope everyone will do the same.
