Stared at my buddies in Julian at 6:30am,does started coming through at 7:00 fallowed by a few small bucks,one was ok 3x2.Rain started at 9:00 and never stoped.bailed out at 11:00 and got lunch.Then went to another buddies house 7 miles south of Julian.after washing and drying my cloths.we went down to the oak grove in the pouring rain,we pushed out deer in every direction.So we set up and watched the show,deer every where I looked.Doe city and 4 or5 forkies,then HB came through and cleared the place out.Couldn't get a shot at him.He was 60 yrds twice.Did I say raining sideways?I couldn't of gotten wetter if i jumped in the lake.Then it started snowing.We are at 4700ft and there is currently 3" on the ground.Think I will stay here tonight and spare myself the drive back in the morn in the snow.Hoping for some luck.If HB is around in the morn he might have a problem.If you come up be careful icey roads for sure.Ill report back tomarrow.

We went out at 3:30, it was raining pretty good, we didn't get out of the car until 4:45, went to our spot and sat for 1.5 hours. We saw no deer came out soaking wet and headed up the trail to look around when we notice the rain was now slush, and then snow. It looked something like this:

We hunted fri morn till Sun at about noon.I seen 3 that are shooters in my book,all three were big old multible point bucks,one was 4x3 and all were at about 180yrds.But the rifle was up at the house.Both spots are archery only by request of the land owners.So I passed on 9 forkies.My 2 buddies each killed nice forkies.At the end of the day Im glad I let them walk.Its alot of work getting them up the hill and driving to town to check them in and then get them back to the house and hangem and bangem in the rain.Im not against the harvest of a nice 3 year old forkie but its still to early at these spots.Its not really on yet,the young bucks are fallowing and pestering the does but there not quite hot yet.When they are the big boys will be carelessly walking through our lanes.This was a good storm I think next week will be on fire.
