    I hunt at my farm there almost every weekend till January. Last weekend I saw a couple nice does, but mostly small does and button bucks. No bucks yet this deer. I did get a nice turkey last weekend. Great hunting state. The whitetails on my farm are some of the most challenging deer to hunt I have ever seen. They check the wind so much. Last week one doe came in to check the wind, smelled me and moved out. Then she came back, where she smelled me before, but the wind had changed direction, so she circled behind me and checked it again. She was only 18 yards out, but in really thick cover to shoot through with a bow and she could smell me, so she decided to wait before coming out to feed. I watched deer come in and check the wind from 11 am till 6pm. My brother had the same experience about 1000 yards from me. He did take a doe at the last minute though. I saw about 9 deer, and he saw 15 including a small spiked buck. I had a blast.
