Slow Start to Archery Season

So far my deer season has been pretty slow. I've only been able to sit in a stand three times, and I've been skunked twice. The other time I saw four does, but decided not to take a shot.

This morning was one of those times when I didn't see a thing. But that's the way hunting can be at times. It was still a beautiful day at the deer lease!

My Dad finally got to sit in a stand this morning and he had three bucks walk by! He said one was a really nice one, and it walked within 20 yards of the stand, but the direction it came from provided no shot opportunities for a right-handed shooter. So it lived to see another day.

The game camera action was a little slow this week as well, but I did have a few decent pictures.

Think of it this way. A slow start just means you have more time to hunt.

Seems to me that you've mentioned before about your Dad seeing the bucks. That man's got the good deer vibe!

Best of luck to you this hunting season Rob. Enjoy!
