Got out this weekend. Spent over 25 hours in tree stands. Great weekend of time in the stands, but lousy hunting weekend. Weather was great for a change 30's and 40's both days.
Saturday had 2 Tresspassers drive withing 50 ft. of the stand I was in. Yelled at them and they took off . The bad part was they drove along the creek and trees for almost a 3/4 mile. Blew everything out of the area. The gate they came thru was wired shut. They cut the wire to get in.
Sunday morning I got out a good hour and a half before sun up. Noticed some fresh tracks in the frost on the ground. One set going in and one set coming out of the field. It's a 1/2 mile hike to this stand. As I got close to the stand, I could see someone driving around and spotlighting in the field next to me. It's private ground and no one has permission to be in there. Called the Sheriff right away, but the bad guys left before the deputy could get there. Safe bet they hit my field first. Darn, would have liked to catch them in my field.
I still hunted all weekend, had a great time, but due to the circumstances didn't see a thing. Hope you guys had better luck.
Almost forgot, got out Friday morning for 3 hours. Passed on a forky and a 3 x 3. About 1 AM Saturday morning, I was asking myself why I thought getting up at 5:30 to hunt on Friday was a good idea. I still had 90 miles to drive to get home. I work part time / on call, for one of the major freight companies. Normally it isn't a problem to make the 600 mile round trip. With good weather, it takes about 11 hours to do the run.
