Default Fathers & Sons Live 2018

Iím late gettin this thread kicked off this year but here it is non the less.
I got home from work Monday night and amongst the East Texas torrential down pour managed to make it to the river bottom stand with Talen Tuesday evening.
No issues getting in but getting out was a different story.
We had an awesome hunt, including a East Texas Mega Spike and multiple does.
After abandoning the ranger due to bridge failure, wading out to the truck, fighting off a few water moccasins and giving the water a few days to fall, we are back at it.
Iíll have the opportunity to hunt with my Dad again this year so Iím gonna keep this thing going till a Dad or Son kills something.

Been in the stand since 5:00, (Post Bridge Repair) and we got deer on us already.











Tuesdayís Hunt.







Todayís hunt.
Deer still feeding 100 yards north.

Iíve been asked that several times.
First hunt of the year. He fed at 85 yards for 1hr. I gave T the green light to shoot him but he passed because we had deer pouring out and he was sure a bigger buck was gonna present itself.

Honestly, itís a blessing he didnít. Water was rising fast and we had to wade out waist deep to get to the truck.

He wonít get a second pass.

Penned and worked cows this morning. Got that finished, out the door and headed to pick up my Dad.
I guess I wore Talen out today so he opted to have a friend over for the night.

Iíll update when we get in the stand.

We are settled in.
Picked my dad up at the gate.
He is in the stand that me & T have been hunting this week and the same stand that he killed his personal best buck in last year on Oct 23.
Hopefully we can get a repeat of last year.

I’m in Summer’s stand (Wife). It’s a Maverick ground blind on the ground setting on a ridge that runs East & West. Flooded slough on the North & South of me makes this a great travel corridor when water is high. Got a couple of big rubs 30 yards to my North.

Bumped some deer out when I got to the stand. Hoping to have another good evening hunt.

Hoot owls are cutting up.

Small 8 eating corn at 85 yards.
Still got a lot of water standing which is good for us. Deer are hammering the corn.

If this evening is anything like our last 3 hunts, we should start to see some more action in the next 15-20 minutes.
