They're in trouble now! I slipped up on an absolute stud. I got to within 15yards before he stood up from his bed and I'm certain he thought I was a hog just because of how he left. Found another major bedding area on a pine ridge between a field and a pin oak bottom with buck beds all in it. It's gonna take a little careful work to set that up, but things are starting to make sense! Headed to go get a haircut and pick Baby Girl up from school. We'll be after them this evening from a stand I've been corning but haven't hunted yet. There was fresh tracks all over it when I corned yesterday. Maybe she'll get to see one this evening.

I got my PH picked up from school. Stopping by the lease boss’s house to grab a tag and grab a sack of corn and we’ll be headed in!

We're settled in. I didn't say anything about stealth or quiet but we're here. There's a 75 yard lane out front and 125 to the east that I have been corning for 3 days now and a feeder at the end of the east lane. We're on the back,side of the last ridge before it falls off into the river. The river is about 125yds south of us.

Wind is swirling pretty bad on the back side of this hill. Temps are dropping, wind is laying, and the shaddows are getting long. Adalee is hanging in there like a champ! She said at School Church today she prayed God would send us a big buck. It sure makes her daddy's heart smile when she says things like that. I've done a whole lot of stuff wrong but somehow I got it right with her.

Right at last light a bobcat crossed the lane. I cartwheeled that sucker and it got in the thicket. I couldn't find a single speck of blood. We had a great hunt. Saw 7 rabbits and a wampuskitty. Had a blast with baby girl.

It’s showing 51° here and lots of stars in the sky.

Trapper woke up with the screamers and Kade’s phone updated and turned his alarm off. I’m sitting in Zavalla eating a honey bun and waiting. Still can’t decide where I’m hunting and where I’ll put Trapper.

Deer fed off into the SMZ before I got enough light. It's clear cool crisp and calm. Kade is hunting the bottom where I killed the bobcat the other morning, Trapper is,where Adalee and I sat yesterday, and I'm back on the clear cut where I killed my doe. I'll update as things start happening.

Crisis diverted!!! It was in my chest vest pocket. It's also like the good Christian people at Grizzly knew I was going to buy this can too! Now we can get back to staring at sunshine, it was about to be a spot and stalk back to the truck!
