    I went out on Thursday morning. I set up about an hour before sunrise and almost immediately heard coyote yapping away. I kinda figured deer would be a bust.

    I also figured I’m pretty outta shape with the bow. I haven’t practiced near enough. I might go out later in the season, if I can get some practice.

    Sat all day today in two spots in Wurtsboro. Didn’t see jack. Beat part of the day - and I mean awesome part - was the Wurtsburger at Danny’s.

    I love the area. Used to own a small piece of land on Ferguson Road. I hunt the state land there often. The boundaries changed this year, one of the bordering homeowners requested a survey. I lost my spot I’ve hunted for 13 years. I stayed behind the houses where the deer traveled between yards. Sucks.

    I sold it to a Chinese couple but it has changed hands since then. It’s the empty plot with a new rock driveway, about 300 yards down the road on the right when heading towards the state land parking at the intersection. There’s a for sale sign on it again.

    Oh yea the new driveway cut in by the top parking area. We hunt from the parking spot down the hill a lot where the state knocked down the old cabin that was there.

    No, it doesn't work like that in Turkey world. Toms don't give a rats ass about hens until breeding season. You will see them together but the boss hen is in charge of the flock.

    I’m going to try to take a day off next week. Otherwise, I’ll be back next sunday. Was going to go this sunday, but I was offered easy overtime. I booked a hotel for Oct 27-31 in Painted Post. I’m finally going back to Erwin WMA. I plan to hunt that week hard.
