Wow! We've had 14" since September 1st. We sure didn't have 10" in August. We're fully saturated and then some now though. I'm ready for a break.

Was at the lease Sunday til a few minutes ago. Holy cow it is wet out there. Didnít really hunt except for Sunday evening when I shot that boar. But it was nice to hang at camp and eat well.

Congrats on kills guys and gals!
Unfortunately all that rain has derailed my efforts to go this weekend. I cross to many low lying areas along CR 2523 and would hate to turn back or have any water issues. Therefore, next weekend looks good.
Hoghunter, did you get pics of that rage broadhead in the hog?

Had a good weekend. I saw nothing but does and young bucks but shot a young pigand a buddy shot a really nice 10 pt. Walked up on it and it was still in velvet. Couldnít figure out why until we hung it up. No balls - just a little bump that looked like a terrierís face.

I have been on my lease for 30 years and this year I have seen 4 bucks that would make my top ten biggest I've ever seen. Missed one a couple weeks ago and had all of them inside my range with this recurve a couple times each. Just no clear shots just yet. Hoping this weekend pays off.
