Glassed last night, had been seeing only a few but saw close to 20 last night. That's an improvement but still not the numbers we are used to.

I was out on Monday night and saw 3 bucks. The last one was a bruiser but I couldn't make out how big his rack was due to the lack of light and distance. The first two were 1.5 year old bucks but the last one was definitely a mature older deer.

All 3 bucks seems to be out on the prowl checking out where the does are. Of couse I was in a management area and no does came by.

It was warm last weekend and I only went out once. All I saw my 3 legged buck that I posted on the trail cam pics earlier. I think a little cooler weather will give us a little more daytime movement.

Saw two small bucks last night. It was good just to see them again. I have seen very little deer lately. The corn down here is absolutely killing me and its not getting picked until next week.

Deer sightings are next to nothing for me as well.

Over MEA we hunted 4 days. I saw deer on one sit. Shot a doe though, so not all bad. laugh

Havent seen an antler yet this year either. Soon, very soon.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
