I’m gonna be here all day.
Got a lunch packed with snacks.
I’m hoping the evening hunt is hotter than this morning.
Maybe I can catch a bruiser cruising mid day.

2 days in a row that Iíve had a buck in bow range @ noon.
Heís 4 on 1 side with a brow tine and slick main beam on the other.
He got the short end of the stick when it comes to genetics.

My buddy Josh filled his tag earlier. He is hunting on the same property as me.
Josh is as good of a guy as youíll ever meet. His passion is duck hunting and he is a pretty dangerous chef.
His text to me read...
ďI shot one. Heís smaller than I thought he was, but he has some beautiful back straps.Ē

Iím proud for him. He is the first in our group to draw blood.

Itís legal shooting light.
Settled in and ready.
Already had a buck come thru grunting like there was no tomorrow.

Ironically, there may not be one for him if he is big enough. Lol

Iím on a property where several big deer have been killed in the last years. And several spotted this year.

Iíll post pics of the set when I have good daylight.

Iíve hunted this property several times over the last 4 years, but never this set. Itís beautiful in here.
Iím sitting on the edge of a 20í creek bank over looking a bend in the creek to my East and alfalfa & wheat field to my West.
Itís over cast with a slight drizzle and a South wind.

I’m hunting with a good friend who runs a small outfitting service.
Brian doesn’t advertise. He has some phenomenal properties and is as hardcore as they come about deer hunting. He has some giants on his wall and is the type of guy that gets more excited about you killing a deer than anybody. I can’t say enough good things about him.

There is a stand there for a South wind and itís an awesome set. But my buddy Clark is parallel to me on the opposite creek. If one of us were to set there we could blow the other stands out. Hopefully we can catch one slipping down either creek or wood line.
