    I'm hunting in knee deep acorns. Seen 10 deer and missed a doe due to deflection. There was a decent 8 point with her but I'm waiting on the big boy. This colder weather has em up and moving

    hunted a few sits this weekend.

    Friday night the 5th,

    cold front was moving in, sitting over top a outfitters blend when it started to sprinkle around 5:15 had a yearling and the momma doe come in. That was all for that night.

    Saturday Morning the 6th.

    Sitting over top acorns and had a lone doe come in, my was pulled back for 2 minutes until she finally decided something was going on and wanted to leave, he finally got a shot and shot her in the "paunch" where we had no blood at all. She is still running around somewhere

    Sunday morning the 7th

    Sitting same set that we had the encounter with the lone doe, again around 8:30 we had a young doe come in by herself. She was right under us at one point and finally worked into the shooting lane, smoked her at 15 yards and only ran another 20. Got one on the board for the team, bucks seem to be nockturnal, havent seen a buck all season but the little ones.

    10/07/12 (Sun)- PM. Hunted in the corner of my property that is nothing but oak trees. At 5:45 I saw a deer running in my overgrown field, not sure what it was doing. At 6:45 I looked up and a big fat doe was at 25 yards and walking perfectly apast me to the side. She didn't even stop, just steadily walked straight apast me and finally stopped at 45 yards behind some brush. I have a cold/sore throat so didn't feel like dragging one out last night so I let her walk. I am still a little amazed why she didn't stop to eat acorns. Shortly after that a coyote let out a howl in the back of my property, then another howl, then a the whole pack started in. They were probably 150 yards from me but it still made the hair on my arms stand up. I hate yotes. What an October for hunting so far, never saw weather in early season like this.
    "...the deepest, most permanent features of all great moments outside are the names, faces, descriptions, and emotions. The antlers on the wall...well, they're just bones affixed to boards. But what they represent, however, is flesh and blood - fathers and sons, friends spending time with friends and the the seasons of life when the people we love were still with us. These old antlers on the wall...well, take a seat, my friend, and I'll tell you all about them." -Rev. Zeke Pipher

    10/08/12 evening sit
    didn't get on stand till 5;30, had deer already in a few of my plots, so decided to hunt the edge of a big just cut saturday field of clover
    was cool for this early, just 44 degree's, in the 40's all day too
    almost zero wind too
    well most deer don't show up here till just about dark, so knew I could get in without bustng any
    at 6;30 first deer showed up, at 10 yrds, a small spiker, he feed on clover till 5 dope came and litterly ran him off, two old does were realy bitchy with this poor little guy
    then at just about dark,had a nice buck show up across the creek from my stand, about 30 yrds,
    he was one of my better bucks, but due to being under some hemlocks, and it being so late, couldn't tell which one,
    he stood on that side of the creek for a solid 15+ minutes never moving an inch, staring at this doe group, wind was blowing right at him, the little that there was, and I was smack dab between him and these doe's
    he finnaly decided I guess all was good, wadded right into the creek, about 3+ ft deep too, and was just about to step into the field, where even with the low light I was hoping to ID him at least, when just before in the opening he dropped his head, grunted and took off chasing these doe's like the rut was on, grunting like mad
    he chased these doe's for a solid 10 minutes before they just hauled ass across the field, outrunning him, and he gave up and feed at about 125 yards, BUT between me and my truck, I ended up sitting in the tree a soild 40+ minutes before he took off again after the doe's way out in the food plots

    over all I ended up seeing like 14 deer, 2 bucks
    cold front is here for next few days low 30's, but rain tomorrow, but I sure like these temps for early oct!, and all the rut like action, hope it means a real rut this yr!

    was able to hunt for a few hours saturday morning 10/6 and had 2 does pass through at 7:30 a.m. as they were feeding on acorns... they were just out of range or I would have le tone have it...

    Tonight 10/9 I saw a bunch of deer out and feeding around 6:30 p.m. as I drove home from work... I drive down 303 through the cuyahoga valley national park to and from work so it gives me a decent chance to see when the deer seem to be getting more active... Tonight there was more deer out than I have sighted so far this season.. even saw a few small bucks... seems like they are out a bit earlier as well... The moon is getting a bit better and this cool weather seems to be getting them up and moving...

    Ok no Am hunt
    got to farm at 4 pm, and it was 52 degree's and a light drizzle, but Super windy, a steady 15-20 mph with good 30+ gust
    was in the tree by 4;30, seen first deer at 6 pm, a good buck but 500 yrds away standing in front of one of my other treestands too, got to love that!

    next deer I seen was at 6;30 a small spike, maybe 2 inch spikes if that, feed in front of me till dark at about 10-30 yrds,
    and then at 6:50 had 3 doe show up a 100 yrds up the field from me, and they too fed in the clover till dark
    and that was it, was in low 40's when i got to the truck, but WOW that wind had it feeling like it was 30 out!
    I'm guessing the wild winds had the deer sitting it out
    and to be honest, with the winds and the tree I was in rocking back and forth I don't know if i could have shot a deer tonight if one came out worth shooting , I was rocking pretty hard

    try again tomorrow!

    I have not seen many deer the last week. I have seen more deer in the acorns than anywhere else before this last week. I placed a stand in a 3 valley corridor and highways everywhere in the bottom of several surrounding thickets and have seen one doe go through. I found 4 Big buck sheds(all very good shooters) in this valley late last season and found a dead 11 pointer from age I believe. I know this is their bedding area but I do have a good sneak in spot. Like I said 1 doe the last couple or so times out. Maybe the moon and clear nights have messed it up in my area this last week. Only good news is right as I got to my stand I saw this below 10 yards from the stand that was very fresh. I am adding a couple more stands on top of this valley as I found out the farm owner owns the top field as well and it is just full of clover I saw last night. Highways going into this field as well. Now all I need is for him to show up. Hopefully I can start seeing the bucks to those sheds I found there.Click image for larger version.

    10/11/12 evening sit
    52 degree's 10+ mph winds and very sunny

    got on stand at 4;30, , at 5:20 I heard what I thought was a guy behind me climbing a tree, so got down to invistage, as last yr I had lots of guys in this area, even got two nice treestands they left me !
    turns out it was a small bear shaking an oak tree , guess the half a million acorns on the ground wasn't enough for him, he wanted freash off the tree one's
    I got to about 80 yards and seen it was a bear, adn went back to my stand
    climbed in to my stand was just about to sit down, and 3 doe raninto the field, and busted me!
    or they seen something in my tree, started to snort a few times, then walked back into the trees, but came back out 5 minutes later like nothing happened so ?? not sure now if it was me or maybe the bear they were snorting at

    at 6;10, I had 9 doe out in the food plot about 200 yrds from me, and all of a sudden they started to charge my way, full steam taking 30+ ft leaps , just hauling ass, ran the 200+ yrds to the trees behind me aand just kept going
    then about 5 minutes later(6;20 pm) a guy poped up on the far end of the food plot
    Dam Trespasser, just ruined my sit!
    he turned arround I guess when he figured No deer in the plot, and started back the way he came, by the time I got down and to where he was he was a good 350 yrds out on the big fields edge working his way off the property
    I gave him a yell, but he never even looked back
    and no way to close the distance
    SO that was my evening
    Oh how I wish I could shoot trespassers!!!!!!!, I'd quit deer hunting for two yrs just to hunt them if I could!!

    Last Night 10/11/12 on my way home from work through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park I spotted a bruiser of a buck standing on a ridge just above a thicket. he had his nose pointed in the air like he was scent checking the thicket below... certainly seems the bucks are getting frisky early!!!
