Default Kansas for a week!

Last night was the first sit, got in there early pulled up my bow , backpack and camera arm. Was going to go back down and then pull up camera after the first load. So... I hung my bow and pack, placed camera arm on base ,looked up and there stood a shooter 8. 50 yards and closing. Just my dang luck. Camera sits at base of tree with the rope lowered on top of it. In 10 minutes I was covered up in deer. 2-8 shooters at one time and a 10 that I need to see closer. 15 deer total. Chasing grunting doe fights lots of action never to be seen by anyone but me. Lol.
The 2-8pt I seen weíre close to this size. Just shorter tines.

*FYI the reason I left camera was because I didnít want to overload the pull rope.

I was able to get the Doe I have been after for 2 years this morning. She has a very recognizable cowlick on her neck.

There comes a time during every archers life when you release the arrow only to watch the buck you been day dreaming about run off without a scratch. A clean Miss is always better that a poorly placed shot. This time it was me who watched the Deep forked 8 run off. I played that back over and over kicking myself wondering what i could have done differently. Wishing i had connected with flesh instead of dirt. A couple weeks later another lease member sealed the deal on the deep forked 8. Happy for him but sad that i didnít get a second chance. While time had passed and our annual Kansas hunt was upon us, it was time to change gears. Days passed and it slowly came to light that this trip was going to be a challenge, even more than years past. Nearing my last few days of vacation, my cellular camera in Texas was on fire! The wide 10 finally showed up in daylight at my spot! After the morning hunt in Kansas , i took down all the sets and headed south to try and capitalize on his daylight movement. So with the trailer loaded i headed south. I arrived at our lease around 1am, tired and defeated i got a few hours sleep only to be on stand well before daylight. Just before Daybreak on Wednesday , the wide 10 steps out of the brush and is lit up by the Sniper hog Lights Feeder lights. There he was ! The buck i drove 7 hrs to try and redeem myself is 30 yards away. As daylight creeped in , the lights shut off and heís busy eating Big Tine blasted into my target area by the Cannon Feeder. He has No clue Iím making room on the wall for him. I position the camera, raise the mini , touched the trigger and watched him fall a short 40 yards away. I couldnít believe it. I took a gamble and it paid off!!! What a journey it has been.
