Well, I'm sure as you all know by the lack of posts, the dreaded slump has settled in. I have sat mornings and evenings for the last three days without a single deer sighting. That is just plain old sad. We had a record warm front followed by gale force winds, but this is no reason for all movement to stop. I'm not really sure the reasoning for this lack of activity.
I don't believe it's just deer either. My trap catches have turned into a big fat goose egg by mid week. No critters seem to be moving. I have been switching my main focus from coon to yotes. This mornings check only revealed a stinky little skunk. How appropriate I guess.
I'm trying to come up with a game plan. I'm thinkin' about shooting a doe, if presented, and hope for some snow for the last bit of the archery season. Then pick back up for Mr. Big. As far as trapping goes, coyotes are number one now. I still plan on messin' with coon a bit also. A little snow would do wonders for the trappin' now to.
Something's going to have to give soon, right.....
