Default 8 day live hunt.

Had some PTO to burn before the end of the year, so I'm doing the only logical thing... heading to the lease! I'll be just north of Sabinal in Uvalde County, toting my Creed and Browning 280 for rattling. The wife is following me out there to partake in the tree sittin, toting her Jewel. She'll be leaving Sunday though.

My ol trigger finger has an awful itch that I intend on scratching this week. Y'all tune in, it's about to get western!

We're set up and in our trees. Krystal took the primary feeder, I settled with the creek feeder. Got in late, as I forgot how long it takes with a woman hunting with you lol. Already pigs coming in. We'll see if they wind me, they always do.

Feeder went off but nada so far. I think the pigs smelled me or something on the corn bucket. Very rarely do I get a pig to come all the way in to the feeder.

So as I was typing the last update, I hear a grunt and look up to see nothing but horns. Hit send and threw up the binos. Its the first time seeing the main frame 12 I have on camera. I put him on my no shoot list as I'm pretty confident he's 4.5. But son of a gun it's tempting! I want a main 12 in the worst of ways. Sorry about bad pics. Morning sun plus moving.

Thanks all. Nothing but the spike left. Krystal is mia, which is good because she won't touch her phone when she's covered up.

Just a pair of youngsters. Love when you have deer in front for most of the hunt. Sure makes it more enjoyable.

Sounds like y'all are having a good time. The only deer I have seen this morning have been on this forum. Good luck and have fun!

Edit: I have to take that back, I saw 3 doe in someone's pasture on the drive to the lease.

Had a good buck blow through chasing a doe. Didn't get to see exactly what he was before disappearing in the brush. Krystal is ready to get out, and I'm trying to talk her into stay to at least 10

Alright back at it this afternoon. Checked camera, and there are several good management bucks coming in, but hate to see not one good trophy buck of age. But you never know. We're set up the same as morning. Sure hope Krystal gets an opportunity to shoot. I know she's itching too.

Action got hot for a while. 2 decent bucks came in, both 10s. Another 8, 6, spike and does. Even though he not the biggest we've seen, I gave Krystal the green light on the 10. Pretty confident he's 5.5, and should actually be better. Nothing from her yet.

So the big one she saw was the main 12 I saw this morning. Glad she realized who he was before drawing lol. We both had great hunts. We'll see y'all coming morning.

So my lovey bride decided sleep sounded better than drawing back on ol big, so I'm riding solo this morning. Went back and forth trying to decide which feeder to sit at. Finally decided on the primary where Krystal has been sitting. Feeder just spun, so lets see what happens.

Looks like all of my 4.5ers are going to make appearances this trip. This is a split G3 11 that we're excited about. Doesn't have spread, but great tine length.

Holy smokes!! So I'm sitting here and coyotes start howling all around me. Freezing, plus a wife ready for me to get back to camp, I decided to call it quits. Just for grins I download a predator app and hit a rabbit call. 30 seconds later I see a yote coming in hard! I waited to draw, and as he was heading around I squeaked at him and let it fly from 33 yards. Looked like a good hit! Let's see...
