Default Live in the middle of the day from Mills County

I had to make an unexpected trip up to Goldthwaite to help the mother in law so I figured Iíd get a little hunting in too. I spread a bag of corn out by hand about 150 yards from a feeder in a small clearing and Iím hoping to get a little lucky. At least the weather is nice

I hope so, low 50s all day would be really nice as long as the rain holds off. Had two really small does stop in and eating now. They look like fawns but without the spots, they get a pass

There’s three or four does nudging around on the edge of the clearing, if one of them steps out it will be fresh back straps for lunch

Patience Grasshopper. My Grandad used to say about days like today......The chances of seeing deer may be low but the chances of seeing a big deer, pretty **** good!

He may be right today, this is the same spot I missed a 10 point last year with my bow; would’ve been my first buck with a bow and I made a terrible shot.

Everything just took off like a bolt out of nowhere, crashing in every direction so not sure what spooked them.

Whatever did it I hope you catch a glance of. Could be a big buck, could be a yote or a pig. Either way, hammer down! Good luck today.

No clue what it was, but everything’s took off running or flying in every direction. Nothing has come back either, even the birds have left me. Maybe I smell bad?

I hope Bigfoot isn’t around, I don’t have a camera good enough for that encounter.

The wind is still the same, but I just had a few more does come sprinting in from the left and kept on going. No clue what’s out there that’s spooning them. I’ve never seen hogs around here and hope it stays that way, but do bob cats come out in the middle of the day? I’ve only seen them in the mornings, evenings, and night.

Bobcats come out all hours. Very well could be one

Good to know, thatís my guess. Iíve seen them and coyotes around here regularly, but the coyotes arenít exactly stealthy.

Slow, heavy rain drops have started, but does are starting to creep around again!

Rain drops are still coming down, but the does have been coming back individually. I’ve got two bucks out there right now. The first one is 2.5 and has good mass, spread, and body weight for his age. The second is 2.5/3.5 and has good mass, but doesn’t have anything for spread yet. The younger one also has two little bumps that I hope push out into G4s in the next few years.

I’m pleasantly surprised today, I wasn’t really expecting any action.
