If you don't know hand signs or have a chalk board handy, maybe he'll be wearing his hearing aid I made for him! Seems to work well IF he's got it!

Haha I'm going on Thursday. I'm prepared to sweat my butt off.

Sad part is, I booked this hunt last April and kind of just tucked it in to the back of my mind.

I'm finally getting in to the spirit of hunting after seeing a big oak thread.

yep, was there last weekend. hot doesn't describe it. had my daughter on her first hunt with daddy. we opted to sit in the boxes because she cannot keep still. (you can see her poke her head out of the window on the first pic) fortunately I had a little battery powered fan along with a mini cooler with ice and bottle water and a cloth that seemed to help. She toughed it out and it was a success. even though it was hot still saw plenty of critters. Marty runs a first class operation. will definitely be back soon.

^^^ very cool. Glad she got a hog!

We've been on vacation for almost a month with family, so we are using this trip to get some time with just us. Seeing and hopefully getting a few animals on the ground will be a bonus.

I have no doubt we will be in the company and care of good people.

More like...any logistic or supply type hints? Things you brought to hunt in the heat or things you would have brought.

I've got a pretty well developed travel hunting tub of necessities. Thermacell, lights, camel back etc...

If you will be hunting the box stands. Take plenty of water. Towel to wipe sweat off. I also took an extra towel to cover any window the sun was shining thru into the blind.

If you have a small ice chest you can keep a wet towel in to cool yourself every once in a while, it really helps.
We will hunt out of the boxes in the morings and they are not too bad and then hunt out of tree stands in the evenings bring a harness.
Bring enough ice chests to take what you plan to kill home.
Other than that we pretty much have what ever you may need

Bagley is getting too old and too fat to be chasing down deer in this heat.
Took her 200 yards of hard running to catch this one.
She worked it over pretty good but we don't eat the neck most of the time anyway

Are some stags hard horn and some still in velvet? That one looks like he has been hard horned for at least a couple of weeks while some of the others still look like they are in velvet and have a few weeks of growing left.

I'm sure she don't know she's slowing down a bit. She looks more than happy to do it again.
