We are going to give it one more try in the morning

I didnít want to break out the big grill tonight so I pulled out my insta BBQ grill. I watched a documentary on BBQ a few weeks ago and saw these being very popular in Sweden. I went on the hunt and found them at Home Depot. They at pretty sweet for a quick cook.

We have had three young bucks so far. One was borderline for the 13Ē rule. He was a penciled horn 3.5 yo (4 on side, 2 on the Other) and Karla really wanted him. Sheís in kill mode but I couldnít make the call if he was legal or not.

Just had an 8 that is right at 13Ē too. I was trying to make the call and then the second feeder spin of the morning ran him off. Karla is not happy with me right now.
