Slow for me too past few days...but Im sure a monster will show soon for both of us.
Uggghhh. Me too, I have not hunted that often this year though, only 3 times. I've seen deer on two of the trips. And only when I was making my way to the stand in the afternoon and spooked some. Horrible, 2020 bad luck I guess. But, I always seem to get at least one. The deer will come.I’ve hunted every day the last 10 days. Various spots on mostly public but some private land. Hunting the wind of course. Have not seen a single deer. I’ve never been skunked this bad before, especially during the rut. Last year I’d see 3-4 bucks a day plus does. This year not a single deer. Fairly careful with scent control and always choosing spots based on wind.
Any words of encouragement? Very close to calling it quits.
I just moved a setup yesterday as I've been a bit "on tilt" like yourself. This resulted in me hunting the stands I was seeing deer from far too often and poor decisions. Hence the move of a stand that wasn't too productive to a new area to have variety and not over-hunt some better spots.I'm going to try a totally new setup. I only have 2 more days to hunt before I have to go out of town for 2 weeks. Should I try a totally new unscouted area? Or a known area at a different time of day (noonish)? Or both?
