    The son in law sat in the same place for 5 days straight, watching the end of a beaver pond on his left and a river on his right never seen a thing. On the last day of the hunt he gave up early about 1 pm and went back to camp. I never seen a thing all week either and put in a lot of miles from dark to dark. I decided i would try some thing different. I went to the son in laws spot and sat by a blow down, on the other side in the direction he would be looking if he was there.100 yards away. I could see his spot from were i sat. And low and behold, i got a small buck and doe at 330 in the afternoon on the last day after only siting there for an hour. they came from behind, were he would have sat. I think they had him figured out most of the week. and came out knowing he was not there. at least that was my thinking. The son and son in-law were sure surprised when i called for help, as they had mentally given up after not seeing any thing all week. You never know, first minute of the hunt or last minute as long as your out there and try. cant wait for next year.

    Same type scenario for me my son sat on the blind I had used and I went deeper into the bush to a second feeder/stand. The adult doe with fawns he should have got at his blind had done a swicheroo back to my stand that had not been hunted and got shot following my track into my stand.

    I have seen guys jump in someone spot after they give up, most times they seem to get lucky quickly. Nit sure how or why that happens.
    Gun control:Criminals who ignore laws against rape, torture, kidnapping, theft, and murder, will obey a law that prohibits them from owning a firearm while disarming decent people from having access to firearms to deter criminals.
