I have just returned to the cabin after hunting this morning. I was in the stand by 6:45am, and I stayed there until 11am.
Here is a picture of me just before I called it quits:
I’m squinting because the sun was bright.
The morning started out cool, 35F (1.5C), but I was wearing enough clothes to avoid discomfort. There were no deer to be seen, but the sky was clear and the sunrise was beautiful, and apart from a bit of a chilly breeze that kicked up mid morning, I had nothing to complain about.
After a quick lunch I will head back out for the evening to try my luck once more.
