    Place your feild report here.

    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.

    Time: 10:00
    Moon Phase: Full
    Temp: 55-65 Degrees
    Wind: S

    Not hunting but filming.... South Georgia

    Saturday afternoon.... 97 degrees.. 7:45 pm saw 3 small bucks.. 2 small 6 points in velvet and one spike out of velvet....and one young doe. The 2 6 points sparred a little and the even chased to little doe around a few times.
    The spike stayed close to the others but kept his distance from the one 6 point.. must be a lover and not a fighter...lol

    Sunday morning .... 74 degrees .. muggy and very heavy fog... saw 2 does at 8:45 am. No telling what walked as the visability was about 50 yards top.

    This morning before work...70 somthing.. foggy again... saw 2 does at same spot.. probably the same as the day before... seen at a patch of wild grapes both times and they could care less about the truck and me.. drove to with in 100 yards of them and watched them from the truck for 20 mins until I had to go to work.

    For the last week I have seen very few deer compared to 2 weeks ago... movement seems to be under moon light in the middle of the night.

    Good luck guys.. I sure miss the hunting.... Sam

    56 degrees

    Wind NE @ 2mph

    Moon PHASE: 58.7% OF FULL

    PARTLY CLOUDY

    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.
