October 31st and the best days are just around the corner. The magical 5-day stretch of pre-rut chasing, rut tending, and lockdown are coming fast and I can’t wait for next week! My plan is to sit and watch a few areas from a distance. If I get a chance to shoot a doe I might…but it will depend on how many I see and whether I can shoot one without scaring a buck. I love exploring and that’s what I’m planning to do next week. It’s time to learn more about a few good areas that I haven’t quite figured out yet.
Rich is preparing for a week off work and a week in the woods! His property has been sparse for deer so far but the chase is going to happen when he is there and that should allow him a shot or two at deer with his bow.
The Keon house is preparing for firearm season as we plan our trip to the U.P. for the firearm opener once again. Kaden will be in a new spot this year and Gavin will be sitting with me. Dad’s feeder is gone. I found the motor…and the legs…but a bear took the barrel and I can’t find it. We will put a few apples on the ground and hopefully everyone will see some deer this year and if we are lucky someone will even shoot a buck.
