Well thatís a wrap for this trip. Iím bummed I didnít get the wife on a deer but she was a trooper for her first hunting trip. Iíll be back out here mid-week with a buddy from out of state. The weather looks awesome for that trip.

Until next time...

Pretty solid opener amigo. Little chill in the air and some rutting action and she'll bag a good one.

I think you'll start seeing older bucks cruising more in a few days.

Back in the saddle with my buddy from Florida with me.

We have a skunk, two coyotes, and a spike in the food plot. Conditions are perfect after the rain.

Back in the saddle for a few days. Karla is back on trigger looking for her first deer. The rain really helped out the Turner Seed food plot. Iím hoping this wind lays for us.

Nice place, Heath! Proud for you! We used to hunt not far from you on the north side of Hwy 209 about 3-4 miles east of Woodson...about halfway before it turns north. Good area with some quail.
