Today I missed a doe about 20 yrds she jumped the string and I watched as my arrow went straight over her back. Hopefully I will have better luck this evening. If we all put in our deer sightings and what time and moon phase we could start our own research into the Moon phase and game times.

Sighted 2 deer Doe and a smaller doe.

Deer sighted a big fat Zero. Did see a Bobcat and a Barn owl landed 5 feet from me checking me out I was sticking my tounge in and out but then got scared he would take the bait and stopped. He spun his head around backwards and then flew away. Love to see big birds when I hunt.
