Set up in a 12' tripod I put in today. Feeder is off to my right but out of sight due to a cedar bush. Watching some hand corn on the path they use between my two feeders.

Well morning to night. Had 6 doe come in late. Milling around and to tight to shoot. Finally the fattest one ran a couple out of the way and stood broad side at 17 yards. I drew, released and watched my arrow soar right over her back, skip off the ground to parts unknown. I have no idea what I did. Left right was perfect but obviously I made an error in form or follow through.

19* this morning and hill country deer don't like the cold. Wind is light and variable which doesn't help. Two doe and two buck seen so far. They tend to move around 9 or 930 when its this cold so I'm going to sit a while.

Congrats on the doe, they all eat good. Well Almost all..., rutty bucks tend to be a little rank. How did the evening play out?

Thanx Rusty. Fun but still some scratch my head moments. Maybe someday it'll work like I planned it.

Had to head out go our ranch today to meet the well driller and a fencing contractor so I'm going to hunt this evening and in the morning here. A young doe went by about 60 yards east of me about 10 minutes ago so I know they are up and moving. Going to put something in the ice chest if I can but they still aren't hammering feeders here yet.

They show up at my feeders all hours of the day and night. I sure wish that these deer would learn how it is supposed to be done.

Well two weeks in a row I've shot over a doe. This time with the string tracker attached and she hit the ground.

Back at the lease and sitting in a pop up on a cool rainy morning. Likely the deer are laid up for now but it should break off for a while soon and I'm going to try to get my last doe with my recurve.

I brought my compound on this trip with three tags to fill and two of them bucks but when I was leaving camp I couldn't help myself but grab my Widow. A couple quick shots at the target and now here I sit. Waiting, hoping and alive.

Four three year old eight points but no shooters. Gotta be a four year old eight in there somewhere that wants to be my first trad buck.

I'm back in the pop up this morning. Slow today. Westerly winds are tough here but I've had a few young buck, some doe and these two 3 year old 8s in for breakfast.

Got a compound today. Til the finger heals that's how it is. But a buddy let me set in his Krivoman in this lovely weather. He's tagged out so I got to enjoy this today.

The blood trail will be easy. Our wind chill is single digits. So I'm wimping it today and staying inside. Best to you.

Well,... I don't see a can of beans so is that a good sign of fresh meat?

I tagged out. Just finished off with the compound. When the finger gets healed I'll get back on it and try to get all of them with the trad bow. However I'm not ashamed of being able to do it with my compound. Just a bit disappointed. However there are off season pigs. So in a few weeks I'm jumping back on it.
