Got this footage with my phone this morning as I was checking wells...first fawn I've seen on the ground this year. Pretty cool...figured I'd share it with y'all.

I find it odd that a whitetail will be hanging out with a mini axis.

Good footage skinny. It's that time of year.

Will do . But, can I get you to get me 10 of those hotdogs? And I'll pay ya back later? . Oh, and I don't understand why they would put a baseball game on a p-o-rn channel or TV ("boob tube" - smh?) Or is tonight topless night at the ball park? I hope it's adults only. Now I know why they call it a ball park. I'll never go watch another baseball game there. I just don't understand (smh). Second thought, put a hold on those hot dogs. No, not that way, I mean I don't want them after thinking about that. Never mind. Just totally disregard this post.

No hunting for me. I've been doing a little stand moving and pig chasing. I took this box blind my wife's uncle gave me over to my Dad's place and put it where my tripod was sitting...and moved my tripod near my Dad's middle feed pen right near his house...that just so happens to sling some corn outside the pen.











Sorry for all the pics...werds don't do me too well.

Yes it's a pretty stout box. Originally built as a rifle blind with big windows on each side hinged at the top. I screwed those windows closed, cut a couple bow windows in it, and shored up the floor. Some fancy paint-n and voilą!!!

Thanks...I've had the blind finished for over a month, but was letting the fresh paint smell "meld" in the pasture by my house. Lol.

Seems that process worked fine.

Fishndude, Talltexasshoote and Smart are on deck tonight outside Post, Texas. Hoping to repeat on the threepeat and get Smart a little tighter hold on 4th place at 2. I'm settled in. May be a bit for Jeff and Keith.

Thanks! I looked across the pasture to my uncles house and the flag was dead earlier...I decided to check again and it was sticking straight out to the north. Decided I better get my arse in the hot box.

Rage Trypan up to bat!

I've been wondering if you were still using the SWAT heads, but keep forgetting to ask.
