Not sure if y'all have seen the extended forecast but you better make sure everything at camp is weatherproofed. Looked like a major cold streak coming next week with about 8-9 days of below freezing at night.

Hunting should get really good!

Anyone headed out this week? I think I'm going to head to the lease Saturday and hunt until Monday or Tuesday. I wish I could hunt the whole week coming up. Weather looks awesome

I'll be heading west Friday morning! Looking forward to some good weather. Most trips have been less than desirable.

I'm headed out Thursday night. Weather is looking better and better. I hope the bucks are still running a little bit.

Good luck this weekend, Jack. Hollar one evening and we can grab a bite. It will just be my dad and I.

As a bowhunter, I'd rather the bucks be done with the rut and back on feed....my feed more specifically.

Judging by my Covert pics, that's starting to happen. Hopefully by this Sunday, they are real hooooongry!

I have seen the same at the feeders but reports were that there was some real heavy chasing still at our place last weekend but it seemed to be around feed areas. I know a couple weeks ago we still had alot of mature doe with fawns that had'nt come in to heat yet. I think alot of the bucks are getting warn down so having to hit the feed hard then off and running again.

I hope it stays this way, I need to get bloody, I've been slacking.

Any of you guys hunt north of Fort McKavett? Pops is looking at buying a place there and wanted to see how the hunting was and generally the exotic population? Thanks.

We had a couple new bucks show up this past week. Hopefully they get on feed been pretty slow at feeders for mature bucks as it always is this time of year.

Heading to the Arden area on Saturday for about 3-4 days. Hopefully the deer are moving! The deer in my avatar was taken in Knickerbocker last year.

When they are running hard. I have had good luck road Corning a spot and setting up a tripod. Somewhere a buck could see a ways. Still a little tougher to get them to stop, but I've had good luck doing this in the past.

Got him. Hit back of both lungs, liver, and guts. He was another 100yds from where I lost blood and it took the dog all of 10 minutes MAYBE to go from feed pen to where he was. Around 350 total. Canít say enough good things about Matt McWilliams and his dog.

4 does down this weekend and a couple of big boars. The set I want to hunt requires a north wind. I think I have only been there with a north wind one day all season. Probably only make it up one more weekend.

Greatness Bobby! Congrats my friend! Glad he found him for you! Matt is 4 for 4 on deer I have sent his way including mine.

Looks like he brought Jock to you as well ...unless Smoke has the pointed spot on his chest too.

Thanks guys. There was a good blood for a while but I got worried when I finally saw gut in my last blood spot so got out and called for dog right away especially since this rain was coming in. Worked out as good as it could for the poor shot
