He’s a dandy! Y’all stay till the last minute!! Wouldn’t hurt to throw up a lawn chair 100 yards from the road near a trail. Just sayin.

The biggest snowflakes ever found fell in 1887 in Montana. The snowflakes measured 38cm across and 20cm thick

Alright I'm home, deer is on ice, so here goes the story. I posted yesterday that I was going to get extreme and set up in the middle of the bedroom on some very active scrape sign, and I did. I didn't want to build a blind yesterday because of the temps, I was afraid I would ruin the area. So I found the tree I would sit under and came back this morning at about 530 and cut a few small cedar limbs and brushed in a spot under a giant bois d'arc tree in the dark. With the wind this morning I figured the noise would be a minimal disruption. So on to the hunt. As daylight took hold of the morning I was settled in 20 yds from the "scrape tree". Now here is the part I wish I had a super exciting story for but I don't. At around 630 I started talking to multiple hunting buddies via text message. I wasn't to worried about the deer activity because I had not seen a deer in 2 days (23 hrs) on stand. So we are going back and forth joking and hacking on each other. Plus I only had one shot and I was set up looking directly at the only lane I had. At 710 am I typed an extremely long message and hit send. I looked up and this buck is magically standing in the opening looking in my direction. Huge body and mature is all I notice at first, then I see he's legal width. I literally dropped my phone, hooked my release on the d loop, drew and shot. Then picked up my phone and sent a follow up text that said " wholly **** I just stuck a good one" at 710.
45 minutes later I had my hands on the first Hagerman deer I've ever shot and the only buck recovered so far this year. Moral of the story is don't be afraid to push the limits of what is considered "acceptable tactics" during extreme weather/lunar conditions, think outside the box, do whatever it takes to stay on stand (Even if it means jacking around on your phone), and never give up on the hag because it can literally happen in less than 1 minute. I've got 3 witnesses to vouch for it.

Love it or hate it the HAG is a hunt of a life time and if you're like me you love it and hate it.

Here's a pic of my set this morning. The fairly large elm tree is the "scrape tree". It was 20 yards exactly from my chair.

Now everyone knows what we do in our stands... Same thing 95% of the rest of the hunters so I'm sure. Y'all think JG will know that we were talking about his stand?

Won't score high but he's a booner in my book on a hunt like this with these conditions.
You did a fine job. I'd Day perfect management buck for sure. Your right about the conditions. We hunted Godwin and the heat and the brutal N,S,E and west wind killed us. Congratulations!!!

Of all the hunts I've drawn there Godwin has always been in the rotation and it always had the least hunters by a good margin, and oddly enough I never recall a good buck coming out of there.

I havent heard of the total kills.
This was my 9th or 10th time to hunt the refuge and I'll say without a doubt it was the hardest hunt yet. I spent a total of 39 hours in the stand and saw 0 deer. Looking back, i probably should have moved (we had 8 other trees picked out as back-ups). The main reason I stuck it out in the same stand was that on Thursday, while hanging the stand, a super wide 10 point strolled by at 30 yards. He never spooked, he just calmly walked through. I really felt i had to stay in that spot just in case he came back. The wind was never consistent for more that 5 minutes. It blew out of every direction but straight up! Even though I struck out this time I had a blast and had the opportunity to meet a couple of fellow TBHers. FND and Chris are some good guys! Hopefully the B and C guys will have better conditions.

So the landowner said you could blood trail on his property but no tracking dogs?, don't get that one...

I don't know if that was the case. I think the H said no. I think the problem was that no dogs were available. But I could be wrong.
