Nice!! Congrats to you and your boy. Now that’s the real trophy. Making memories with your children is the best. Took my daughter out there last year and had a blast. She’s all pumped and ready to go again this year.

Good job, guys. Never an easy hunt, but there are really good deer out there if you can find them.

It was a hard sit and plenty of(Ok bubba quiet) lol but when she walked out he was the first one to see her crossing the creek but then the deer fever hit and he was shacking before I was able to get the shot off but he got it together and was able to get her to come into range and let the xbow rip

Awesome, we saw one doe while parking, two bucks during the am sit (One looked close 13" but too many branches to chance it.), and two does on the way out. It's getting hot!

Do you guys feel like there is more deer movement on the Nails creek side than Yegua?

I haven't hunted out there in years but don't have a lease option this year so will be giving it a try. I know the answer is scout and will be doing that and hunting mid week mostly. Just looking for a starting point.

Saturday PM sit we had 4 deer, probably does at 40 yards minutes before last shooting time. This morning we had 7 doe at 10 yards, but the **** ladder stand wouldn't shut up and I ended up spooking them trying to turn around. Good weekend all in all though. Definately on the deer finally.

Man that sucks. I usually bounce around on my stand a little bit once Iím locked in to make sure everything is settled and tight so there wonít be any mishaps like that although it still happens from time to time. Good that youíre on the deer now though.

Sounds about right for Somerville. Headed out in the morning and taking my baby girl with me. This will be her second time in the stand. I’m hoping for a spike or smaller pig but who knows with these summer temps.

Nice! I haven’t really heard them swirling as much as I usually do but I have a pretty good spot picked out where they’ve been traveling through every day around the same time. So far it has only been big pigs though. I’m hoping for something a little smaller.

We were on the main lake Saturday for ducks. Did not hear much shooting on the lake but did hear a lot up towards the West end and the WMA. Could have been private too.

Those duckers were blasting away this morning. Sounded like a war zone.

I ended up having to move spots because of the duck hunters. Talking and going back and forth to their trucks. That's ok..I think I found a pretty good spot for future hunts
