Well a month ago we were up here looking the place over and setting up a corn feeder in a new spot to hopefully draw a few deer in for the grandson. It is a great location in a small valley between several small hills here on our place. The woods make a nice inlet on one side in which we set up the feeder and there is a decent sized hickory under which I had planned to setup a pop up blind for us. I cleared the underbrush the weekend we set up the feeder so that it would be clean for the most part. The next week we come up to do some shooting practice on location with the boy and while setting up several life sized deer targets, I find that the feeder has been found by the deer and hogs. Upon setting up our chair and rest under the Hickory, I find that the hogs are now using a new trail which comes right through the area under the tree where I want to put the stand. I figure no biggie just hogs and heck they eat too. Last weekend we shot some more and cleaned up a few stick up in and around the tree along with cutting a few branches here and there to avoid blind spots. Well an hour ago the wife and I headed out to set up the pop up. Got everything in the truck and with the fog lights only headed over the hill to our hide. Trying not to disturb the whole country side we first got busted by a pack of yotes which let loose like air raid sirens. Next I get the truck situated so that we can use the lights to set things up, and haul everything in under the canopy of this tree. Just as I was cutting out a couple of missed vines I notice it, damned if the buck we are targeting didn't put a scrape 3' in front of where I wanted to put the stand. So plan "B", we backed out and set up some 30 or so yards away just over the rise of one of the hills. Hopefully in the morning we will be on him before he figures out the jig is up. Stay tuned, I am sure this will be interesting. Got to run for now not much shut eye before I drag the boy out.
