Default Lake Whitney and Lake Aquilla 2015 -2016 this is it!!!

We've made the turn and a new season is just around the corner. So get on out there and get your scouting done. Your going to ask why this guy in Florida is kicking this thread off, well it's because I was asked to by a friend. Years ago when I got back into bow hunting I met our own Texas Grown and that started me on the path of fellowship with TBH. Hunting is all about the memories you make and the people along the way.! So post up guys ! I wish all of you the best of luck is getting your special deer but also your experiences with all the good people you've met in the field . Pics are always welcome be it hunting or around the camp fire. Be safe , be courteous and spread the friendship that is Texas Bow Hunter.

On a better note, we saw some Elk cows yesterday, had a Mule deer doe and fawn walk 30 yrds. From the cabin this morning. Chipmunk's
are everywhere.














And it was 42 degrees this morning.

It was 104 this afternoon BS73. I heard that 100,000 chipmunk skins will be enough to get a truck fixed.

How were the sheaths and knives appreciated?

Storm, the wife is going to whip you for the pics.

Speaking of breaking down, had an annoying belt/bearing squeel on my PS 6.0 for a few weeks. I put a new belt on it yesterday as well as new bearings in the tensioner and idler wheels. Hope I have it fixed.

Good luck up there BS73.

Home… lol jk. Walling bend is open on the left side ( the side with the camp ground) and soldiers bluff but both of those aren't very private. Steele creek was still closed before I left for work but it's such a popular place with all us rednecks it may open sooner than some. I honestly don't know why they're keeping most of them closed because for the most part the ones I frequent don't have any major buildings to be damaged from the floods. I guess I should call and find out about my favorite places

Campgrounds are full of trash, trees, etc. The water system was probably compromised, electrical as well.

Limited funds to contract it out for cleanup?
