I got back in town last Sat from my annual hunting trip to MI. Hunting was good but I didn't see any deer that met the size requirements we set for the property. As always, no doe are taken since the surrounding properties seem to enjoy the idea of shooting every living brown creature. Anyways, thought I'd share the pics that I did take. This was a fresh rub about 75 yards from my F-I-L's blind; we cleared a lane into this area and he was able to watch a few small bucks work this rub. I always enjoy the sunsets while up there; the flat(ter) topography and rolling hills give a wide view of the evening skies. I snapped this pic while standing next to my F-I-L's blind on Sunday the 13th. This pic is looking from my blind towards the East. This dirt road (trail) runs down the middle of the property and I watch for trespassers from time to time. It's roughly 275 yards from my window to the other side of the road. My F-I-L's knee started acting up on Wednesday so I hunted his blind on Thursday morning. I only saw  doe but they didn't seem to mind me watching them. They're about 18 yards from the blind, moving from my left to right. My last hunt was Friday morning; I watched a spike come in and lay down next to some apples about 85 yards away. He must have been tired from chasing because he would eat apples while laying down. He got up after close to 30 mins and proceeded to walk up to my blind, then off to my right. All in all, it was a great trip. We didn't take any deer this year but that didn't matter. Just being up there and in the woods makes everything else fade away. @kcult - you can see some of the cut trees in the last  pics and also some of the marks made from the arborist before cutting. My blind is right on the edge of the 800 acre cut. Some areas were select cut while others were stripped down to nothing. These deer certainly didn't mind the more open ground.
