If I ever have the chance to hunt a "13" he will be named something else. I've never been superstitious but these 13 threads might just change my mind! Good luck

Default The other 13 thread...

Iím in the tree. Rain just stopped and north wind picked up pushing cold air in. Iím cold and wet but making the effort.

Donít have a lot of hope in this sit but in the morning I think I will have a great shot.

The solalunar is in the same phase as when he showed up 3 mornings in row last month during peak times.

My last buck tag will be for 13 or Iíll just have to eat it!

This evenings hunt was a good one. Got unpacked, put out corn, then headed to the stand at 4pm and I was back at camp by 4:30 with a big doe.
Pops helped my skin it, then we fried back strap with taters and gravy for diner.
Campfire with my brother and his family and a few cold ones.
Finally headed to bed, going to try and repeat it in the morning, as well as get my daughter on one for the evening hunt since no one will hunt these cold mornings with me.

Tagged out in THAT county. I sure wish it had been a two buck co. After i shot lowbeam, the other shooters hung around until I got out of the stand and ran them off! They kept trying to make Lowbeam come on.

Heís burnt out! LoL

Iím back at home.
Got a doe and two pigs this weekend. Seen a another doe this am but to far for open sights and a front end loader.

Time to get back on track! Just got back from running cams. 13 has been at my lock on twice a night every night since i left.

Went across the street and he was there at 6:26am for a few minutes then crossed a field the road and another field (about half a mile) and was at my set at 6:47 till 7am!

Fresh corn is down for the next two days. Hope he slips one more time before he gets run over.

I have a silenced .22LR MP5 clone with a laser and spot light attached....

Maybe the next two days he will slip up again. Heís starting to hang around the other bucks too. He might be think about calling my place home.

Stayed half a day and he was a no show. He came in at 2:30 early this morning. They are starting to group up here first time i have seen him with other bucks.

Tomorrow is my last day to get him and the weather looks nasty.

Iím not gonna hunt him this evening. He never shows up. Iím headed across the road to try and fill my last doe tag.

Had a pair of spikes get within 5 yrds of me today. They finally hauled butt. There was a pair of doe on a old corn pile i had in the woods near me i couldnít see to get a shot on. Looks like Iíll be eating my last doe tag.

I sure hope this snow puts 13 on his feet when the sun comes up. Or any of my other mature bucks. Takin it down to the wire.
