I'll be headed down in the morning for 4 or 5 days. I know there will be at least one other TBHer in camp. Weather looks good. Hopefully the Bucks corporate.

Love that place. Went on a youth hunt a couple times with my son. Saw tons of deer every sit, including 3 studs,(off limits for that hunt). The deer there are as skittish as a meth head who's been up for a week. If you get a deer there, it's an accomplishment.

There has been some nice bucks killed this year. I shot a good one last year but must of not made as good of a shot as I thought I did. The deee are there and you have to do your part. It will definitely test your skills because the deer are super smart and super educated. I like it for the challenge.

I'm sitting off the feed route this evening. I had enough time to get familiar with my pasture and set a few cameras. I'll let the cameras do their work and hopefully move closer to a buck tomorrow.

I switched to fixed blade ramcats and shoot through mesh to try and avoid the black hole in my shooting window.

Have you shot through the mesh before. It cost me a real good buck there two years ago. It helps tremendously for concealment but your arrow has to be tuned perfectly. In my case it wasnt.

Good luck, I really enjoy these first point threads.

I just heard a cat screaming and growling down in the creek about 60ish yards from me. It's probably a bobcat, but I don't like it! I have to walk that way to get to my truck.

I'm sure it's just that Mountain Lion Bo has been seeing along that creek. Don't worry only one hunter has been attacked there

I let you know when you get here. I'm on vacation for the next two weeks and might want to come back down and hunt again. This way I can freely post picks of the Bucks I get on trail camera, and not have to worry about somebody requesting this pasture before I return.

I haven't seen anything while on stand tonight. I left camp about 5 minutes after Bo started the corn route. You would not believe how fast the deer are in the road after he passes by. I saw about 30 deer driving out, a few were really nice bucks.
