Back at it this morning. Already had 4 dink bucks come in at the same time. 2 of them have been sparring in a clearing about 50 yards from me. Pretty cool to watch them.

Took this 4X1 spike on 11/17 in Hopkins county. Rattled him in while in a ghostblind. Two non-legal bucks also came in to rattle that morning.

TTT.

I'll be back in the stand tomorrow. I'm hoping they are moving. My hunting time is fixing to get short with Christmas knives that I have to finish.

has anyone hunted here before? i would think it would be pretty decent since they only open it up for a short time so not a lot of pressure during the season....

Got down off the stand at 11:30 to go get something to eat, was debating about hunting this afternoon. Went into Cooper to grab some DQ, ordered, pull up to pay and she tells me my debit card is invalid. Well crap, thought I might have gotten hacked again. Didn't have ANY cash on me and no other credit cards. Head home cause I'm starving and no way to get food. lol

Come to find out after sitting on hold for 30 minutes with my bank card services, it's a global outage with MasterCard. I usually have some rathole cash in my wallet, but hadn't replenished it since I used it a couple of days ago. That won't happen again. lol

Thanks, but at first I thought maybe I had gotten hacked and would need to get a new card so I headed home. Got halfway home by the time I got it figured out.

Red one I am pretty sure. If that is not you then I'm guessing another person walked up on me haha. There was only one other truck in the area. I thought it was land owners near by putting a note on a car or something.

I went off of 4782 today, saw 1 squirrel, 1 armadillo, and 4 hunters "still" hunting( walking around breaking sticks and banging into stuff. Talked to the warden when I came out, said there were 7 trucks at the end of the road and 6 on the other end. Will not be going back out there on the weekend again
