It was 80 degrees and humid on Dry Ridge this afternoon but I went for a walk anyway. Visited an old hunting haunt that I've frequented since the 60's. It's private land but not posted against hunting but is a great travel lane from the top of the ridge to the creek valley below.

I stopped by the old walnut tree where I have taken four bucks in the last decade. The tree is in bad shape....dead, matter of factly, but still stands in that good old spot. There is a good path here from the bedding areas below and to the east, to the fields above.

This place is near one of the favorite bedding areas that is clogged with honeysuckle, jack pine and multiflora rose. The wind was quartering toward me so I spent about an hour here just watching and listening. Heard two ravens chittering back and forth. I was well hidden in this spot but no deer came by.

A lightly used trail coming from the dense area to the east. Good prospects here for a buck encounter.

Thanks for the pics. Kinda reminded me how old I am when I revisited a tree that I have killed deer from, and it's been dead for years!

Red oaks seem to be dropping pretty well here.

A big old sassafras tree here, and a few smaller ones as well. Jumped a small buck just before this spot. It was bedded down near the edge of a field, not even a hundred yards from the township road.

I was only out for about two and a half hours but was sweating pretty good till I got back to the truck. Too dang hot and humid.

"Too dang hot and humid." Yep, Except for Oct. 1st opener when it was 49, I've only hunted in the mornings. 80ish every evening so far.

Snowed all day, again, here in Colorado.

Thanks for the nice pics. I can almost feel the warmth.

You guys out there get that old Alberta Express cold air coming down through the prairie I believe. Course you got those big Rocky Mountains too.

George, thank you for the pics. Nice in the woods this time of year when it's a little cooler. A question how is that little bow going to shoot that great big arrow. :-)

It is nice to see some country similar to what I hunted early in life. Didn't see a single cactus in your pictures. It must be nice to walk around for two hours and not have to pull prickly pear spines out of your legs.

I have been longing for a walk in the woods with some red and yellow leaves for scenery.

Brad, we were near Dolan Springs for three weeks last Jan/Feb. My brother's daughter, my niece, lives about five miles north of there. My wife commented that she was glad we didn't live there because you can't walk barefooted in your own back yard. Every time you went back in the house from a walk you had to pull the needles from your shoes. Nice to visit there for sure, but I do like my environment here.

Hey George, its always good to take a trip down memory lane, its funny how some areas do not change that much except for the density of the flora or the health and size of a tree.........bet you visualized in your mind the hunting scene that took place next to that walnut tree some 40 years ago..............beautiful, but can also have an air of sadness...........Thanks for taking us along for the ride

Nice pics George.

Welcome to what it's like to bowhunt in Texas. When I moved here 37 years ago from Western PA I gave up bowhunting for a while. When I started again I decided mid November would be a nice time to hunt.

Nowadays I just rove with my 12oz stick. If your not hunting dripping wet doesn't matter so much.

Hey Mark, I guess a guy would get used to about anything after awhile. We have been spoiled by cool temps and dry air, normally starting in mid September so this is unusual...but not unprecidented. It's better than 25 and blowing snow. )) I've visited all of the states but two, and they are here on the east coast. The southwest is a nice place to visit, and some folks just love it, but it's not for me or my wife. It's more than likely just that comfort zone thing. Raining all day today and that's a blessing for sure.
