I hate it took me so long to find this. Congratulations on the purchase and I really dig the improvents. I have a feeling this place will have new additions every year that will be fun to watch. Good luck to you and your bride.

Itís been slow so far with only a coyote running through. The deer app says peak is late morning so hopefully that holds.

A nub, spike, and 7 point. No shots as the 7 and spike were edge of food plot and that is about 275-300 yards so to far for a shot.

Itís about to be bacon and egg time.

We swamped out cards and went for a golf cart ride. We jumped 4 does on the county road on my West fence.

Stan got to put on his hunting jacket.

I love your name, Social Club! ...and perhaps a little hunting is done, too! lol

That's a big, mature buck, and I'm thinking the spike needs to have his backstops chicken fried and his grind in a big pot of chili!

They are Scabbard brand and they came on the cart when I bought it so not sure.

We are back in the stand. Itís really overcast with a few drops of rain. The wind is blowing so hopefully it lays for us.

Yep sitting in a blind this morning where I usually see no less than 8-9 deer each time. This morning had one deer in my hand corn and that was about 20 mins before I could really see good thru binos. Havenít seen another deer since.

Do you have an aerial photo of your place with everything marked? Would be great to get a better feel for how you layed it all out.

Itís not marked up. Camp is in the SE corner.

My box blind is in the middle of the north edge of food plot (5-6 acre cleared spot). I have a feeder up that road to north about 160 yards. Then I have a feeder on SSW edge of food plot about 160 yards away.

There are wheat fields on my north and south fence.

Congrats on the hunting grounds, Heath. Dig the food pics. One of the best things about deer camp is the food. Seems like you got that covered.
