We are after them again for the last hunt of Thanksgiving before family and football take over.

We had a spike at the feeder but no shot as she was very patient for the right shot but the second mornings throw spooked it off. E have seen 4 does coming off my neighbors wheat field but not close enough to shoot. We also had a pack of coyotes run through. Once we get some deer on the ground itís going to be a war on those suckers.

Welp, no deer on this trip. Karla has had some bad luck but sheís determined to make it happen. Sheís scoped 3 bucks but passed waiting on the right shot. Iím very proud of how sheís handled her first deer hunts. We will stay after it. I have seen plenty of shooters while on stand without her so they are here. Like other places the acorns are hurting us.

Billy, skunk sex is skunks having sex. The last one is when a buck is eating so close to the stand and fill directional feeder and it goes off and blows corn in his face.

Thanks for clearing that up! I thought maybe that was some special technique or something . I was pondering whether to ask for pictures but decided against it! I didn’t want to get you banned!

I am not sure how I missed your thread here - sorry Karla didnít get to itch her trigger finger but she will get it done. Glad to she see is puting stock into the little experiences that we as outdoorsman get to experience by keeping an ďexperience listĒ. Enjoyed our time together Tuesday.

I have seen two bucks she would have shot this morning. So far four total bucks including a really nice 3.5yo 10 that made me half reach for my gun when he walked out.
