Default Taking my daughter hunting for Ol' Big today

Wish us luck. She's trying to get one of these two bucks with her bow. I asked her if she wanted to use a gun since the last hunter hunted these two bucks 4 straight days with a gun and no success. Daughter looked at me like I was stupid for even asking...So off with her bow we go

For the area it's super nice. I took those pictures with my crappy cell phone about 10 days ago. Actually watched the bottom buck hump a doe.

Best hunt ever! Had Ol'Big at 6-9 yards for 20 minutes. Tried drawing back 5 times. Too many other deer watching. I literally almost fainted.

The big one we saw Wed night was the one in the second picture. This morning the one in the top picture showed up along with 2 10 pointers. She again could not get to full draw. Mostly because she was cold with too many clothes on.

At 8am after warming up a minute we went to another blind. A big shooter 7 came in with two 8 pointers. No dice as it was all the way light and I think they knew we were in that Krivoman. Fun hunt though.

At 11am my dad got to the ranch. I took him to get a doe at the mid day feeding. In the blind he asked if I see hogs at that blind and I said no. 5 minutes later at 11:15 he says Pig! I was thinking WTH? And sure enough in broad daylight a 120lb sow was walking through a small clearing. Of course it was at the only window he was not set up to shoot out of. Nearly got a shot off though.

Next post will be tonights hunt.

This evening we head out at 3:15. Feeder went of at 3:45 and had 7 deer come in fast. A decent 10 an 8, two spikes, and some doe. Feeder went off again at 5pm and after 10-12 deer were mopping up corn I saw the big one (in top pic) walking in. He came in and took over the corned area. Shot was a little far back. Waiting on tracking dog still.

The leg that appears to be in the middle of its body is actually its left rear leg.
