New SpringWidget

Drive by

Went driving around this afternoon with no intention of getting out of the truck, that is until I saw an apple tree on the side of the road that was hammered with tracks. I parked the truck, bundled up and went for a walk. LOTS of deer tracks and a few coyote tracks. I followed a set that looked fresh but its hard to tell in this snow and ended up finding a swamp crossing that I never knew wast there.

I realize that their patters are different right now than early season but I think I may have found a place to hang a late season bow stand. Easy to get to, I can hide my truck when I park so people wont know I am there and its a short walk. Gotta love that!!

Tracks in the snow

Went and spent a couple hours in the woods this afternoon with my dog. We cut several fresh tracks and backed tracked them. Found where they bedded in the storm. They were headed to the farm to feed it looked like. I ended up pulling a stand I had not seen a deer from in two years. Lots of sign but never a deer. My dog went nutz when I climbed the tree.

It looked like a great spot on paper, just never panned out. That means its one less tree stand I will have to buy this year.
