After weekend family obligations, I made a quick trip to the ranch for a couple of days to take advantage of the extended holiday weekend.

I arrived after dark yesterday, but it was already cold and drizzling. With misting rain and ice on the windshield this morning. I opted for the comfort of my new Krivo blind that I set up a couple of months ago at Hiline Cutoff. I'm toasty warm in here with my Portable Buddy heater. I've already had to shed fleece!

There has been a pretty cool deer here on trail cam that we call Bullwinkle.




So far this morning I've only seen one small buck.

My brother, Martin, and his daughter are here, too. Hopefully we can avoid the excitement Courtney and I experienced on our last trip and keep the focus on the deer hunting!

It's starting to rain. Sounds like maybe some sleet mixed in. I'm glad I opted for the Krivo instead of a tree! I'm going to hunker for the long haul hoping deer are moving a little late.

It's hard to tell in this pic, but it's starting to snow here in South Texas!



I really want to hunt from Killin Tree in the snow! I hope this keeps up!

It's still spitting rain and there's a sheet of ice on the seat of my tree stand. Hopefully it won't get any heavier and I can keep my gear dry.

Good mature buck crossed road 100 yards to the north and then angled back behind me to the west. Hopefully he doesn't circle downwind before coming in.

Four does came in for just a bit, but eased back on up the road. I was hoping they might have a buck in tow, but no luck. Maybe they left some scent.

Good luck to ya, hunted this weekend and filled some doe tags for a family member.

Was not fun cleaning them in the cold last night but nice to hang them in a cattle trailer for cold storage.

Back at KT. It's a brisk 28 degrees, but the Predator Fleece and some base layers handles it well.

Had 4 does on road corn. Young buck walked by at 10 yards, watching them and unaware of me behind him.

The does alerted to something up the road to the north and high tailed it out, blowing the entire way.
