I was given permission to hunt a 40 acre lot of woods this year behind my grandmothers place in Ohio. She used to own the property when my grandpa farmed, but after he passed away she sold the farm and property to her neighbor. Well I got permission from him to hunt the woods, but he did warn me that I may see a couple Amish in there since they own the adjacent woods and fields. I did all my own scouting, hung my own stands, cleared my own shooting lanes all by my lonesome which for me is the first year bowhunting and also my first year doing all this on my own. Nothing but does and a couple small bucks on the trail cams, but to me does fill the freezer the same as bucks do. I sat opening day and sunday morning but come to find out the deer were using a trail I didn't know was there, so monday I spent my time moving a couple stands and clearing lanes, little did I know was working in poison ivy. This weekend was perfect in Ohio, frost in the moring with somewhat chilly afternoons and I spent most of the day Saturday in the hospital getting treated for poison ivy and poison sumac. I thought i was immune to both because I have never had it...wrong! What a terrible week, I hope I'm well enough to get out this weekend even though they are calling for 70 degrees.
O well, sorry for the rant, just very bummed. Thank God for this board so I could see everyone else being successful. Stay safe.
