Hunting today was very uneventful. Although the wind and rain/sleet/snow mixture combined to make "noiseless" movement possible no deer were seen. Worse, no sign was found in areas usually rich in rubs, scrapes, and well used trails. Very disheartening.

I've not been reporting here because for the last 3 days I've been in the Canaan Valley of WV. While Davis and Thomas, WV are not strangers to me (I lived my early childhood there and returned some for exercises during my military service) it was a new experience to be a tourist. And... we saw deer. Large healthy does feeding in the open, unafraid. Large racked, healthy bucks being checked in at the game stations. Very unlike western Virginia.

I did carry the 7-30 Waters again.
