On Tuesday night I decided to hit them with the flashlight before bringing out the dogs. The two doe where standing 35 yards from the back steps. One was very, very big just standing broadside, head turned towards me. What a sight. Yet, they have not been around during the daylight. They must be bedding down a pretty good distance from the homestead because they are not coming around until 10 or 10:30 at night. Then I read a neighbor's face book page (probably 1/4 down street) and she reports an 8 pointer (a 4x4 for you muley chasers) munching on the shrubs in her side yard in the middle of the day. I thought the rut and late rut were past but maybe one of these does is still going. Hope to get in the woods very soon and try hunting him.
Massachusetts weather is saying "maybe" some snow coming on Sunday!! I feel a sickness coming on for Monday!!
