      I got out on opening day here in PA, dressed for the summer weather. It’s been really damp here all year and the mosquitoes were more active than the squirrels.  I did see a few deer. I kicked out 4 or 5 on the way in and then had a doe come in keeping her distance, then another later that walked right under my stand. No shot.  I did manage to kill three mosquitoes without alerting the deer though.

      Good luck to you all out there. Best, dwc

      It’s still skeeter weather here in SE Ks and the river bottom timber I hunt you can kill more than three with one swat.

      Let me know if you need help dragging one out 🙂  I know them skeeters can get heavy…

      I got within 10 yards of a big buck a couple days ago.  Could have been a 10 pointer (I don’t count points till the deed is done), but alas he proved, like most deer do, that he was smarter than me.  Had a little brush between me and him.  He walked up behind me, so I turned around and waited for him to clear the bush.  He was about to when he sniffed my back trail and switched ends.

      After he made his exit I got to looking at the bush…  Probably should have threaded an arrow through it.  Done it many times on 3d courses and while stumping.  At such a close range it would have been a sure thing.  Better than waiting for him to come into the clear.

      Next time…
