Yep I am def excited for the temp change. I figured it will get them moving quiet a bit more. Maybe get some pre-rut activity. We plan on hunting all day.

Sorry for the late report fellas. It's quite time consuming trying to find and setup 4 spots! All the meanwhile it lightly rained on us. We found some good spots with good sign. We found two different groups of Nilgai cows in two different locations! We saw lots of whitetail and also some javalinas. The nilgai groups were small, one had 4 the other just 3, all cows. They did not seem spooked, one group stood and watched us at 30 yards for about a min before walking off. Overall great day! Hopefully we have some animal pics for yall tomorrow !

Went in blind this morning since I had no time to scout before hand, saw Deer, hogs and turkey. Doe spotted me from 130 yards away, I knew I found a good area. Backed out gonna try again later, keep covering ground, thatís what I did this morning going in blind and found some animals.

Unfortunately we didn't find her. Eating and regrouping to head back out and try to get another one. We all saw animals this morning. One in my group had a big bull run full sprint by him with in 10 yards. Scared the crap out of him! No shot. The other saw a few whitetail does but no shot either.

Animals are up and moving now that the snow and rain are gone. Although I haven't seen anything, the other 3 in my group are. One took a 70y shot at a cow, he missed low. Other saw a bull across the way that didn't come in. He did take a shot at a cow, only shot he was given was through a cactus. He was trying to thread the needle but think he hit cactus. The 3rd had a doe come out at 10 yards, she ran when he pulled his bow up.
