    LMAO!!!!.....very slowly I'm guessing!!......I think he meant 6-8" of snow......there's no way that PA has 68" on the ground.......that would be a good season total for his area.
    Enjoy your hunt- the long sit......... the cold.......the rain and snow......the peace and quiet, it may just be your last hunt........... you never know.

    I was out New Years Day for the last two hours in the Wellington area(about 45 minutes west of Cleve.). I had a mature buck chasing a doe to within 40 yards of me, but no shot offered. They were milling around me for about one hour and the buck kept a close eye on her the entire time. She was a small doe, so my guess she was a 2012 fawn.

    One month ago on Dec. 1(first Saturday of gun) I was in the same tree stand and had a mature buck chasing does as well. He also got within 40 yards in thick stuff and did not present a good shot opportunity. I thought he would present a better shot. Never did as the does took off and he followed. Not sure if these were the same buck, but I am posting this as Ithough it was interesting that I saw chasing on December 1 and January 1.

    Haven't gave any updates since my big disappointment on 12/16, that one still eats at me. Had to take about 2 weeks off after that. But I'm still here and hunting. Here's my hunting updates in the last month.

    12/31- Hunted the day after we got 6.5" snow. Saw 5 does. First 3 busted me. Was ready to shoot one of the next two but they busted me right before I was ready to draw. Hard hunting from a stand with snow on the ground and not much cover in the tree.

    01/05-01/07- (Muzzleloader Season) Saw 17 does, 1 buck, and 6 unknown deer all together during the season. Hit a big doe high and in the opposite side shoulder on opening morning with my bow and didn't find blood, hair, my arrow, or the doe. Not good. Tried to shoot a doe while making a drive on 01/06 but my old MZ didn't go off. Missed another big doe on 01/07 while standing during a drive. Yeah I know, tough week. I pretty much choked on every opportunity I got! Took another week off to compose myself!

    01/15- Hit a doe in the lower leg, followed blood trail right to where she bedded 60 yds away, got within 10 yds of her with a flashlight but obviously couldn't shoot her in the dark. Did someone say season from hell!

    Back out tomorrow morning in the windy conditions then on MLK day Monday. Shot my bow alot today, everything is fine except my brain. Good luck to everyone else also.

These old antlers on the wall...well, take a seat, my friend, and I'll tell you all about them." -Rev. Zeke Pipher

    Thanks for the updates Blackbeard. You sure have had a tough year, but I am hoping your persistence pays off soon.

    01/20/13 AM- Saw two does, too far away no shots.

    01/25/13 PM- Saw one doe being chased by dogs. Too far away no shot. Beautiful evening with 3/4" of snow on the ground. Quiet as heck and COLD too. Back out tomorrow morning for another cold hunt.

    01/26/13- PM. Never saw a darn thing. Absolutely gorgeous evening. So quiet you could hear a field mouse fart! Full moon isn't helping right now though, seems like movement is during 10:00-11:00 AM hour and after dark.
