I found both of my trail cameras on the ground because of that cow. Itís been here since 10/12 so Iím pretty bummed to get no pictures for the last 8 days. I want to tell the rancher to come get it but donít want a truck out here till it dries.

The Buck Forage Oats are looking good. This is looking back at feeder and blind.





Did I say itís wet out here!

Carson will want to know where that cow is, and I bet he'll be able to get it out without messing up your stuff.

Late lunch was a Mexican Cornbread with shredded beef, creamed corn, green chilies, and cheese.





Dessert was a Símores Cake.

Both of those look great! Do you have a recipe for the Mexican cornbread or did you just throw it together?

Pretty simple. I put a package of cornbread mix on the bottom, filling in middle and another package on top.

We had a doe come in late, but a pig ran her off. Karla passed on the pig so I took her crossbow and smoked him.

Hopefully and LDP in the morning with all the mud.

Choose your friends more carefully!

I used to hunt between Woodson and where I think your place is, and the sandhill cranes would be thick in the field across the road from us. Remember (when the season opens) they are fine table fare!

No deer were harmed this weekend. We did have deer / pigs within 20 yards on all three sits. Karla is learning those tough bowhunting lessons about not just getting the deer close doesnít mean they will give you the correct shot or how a pig or even another deer can run away a deer.

Again, a good teaching moment as Karla continues her search of her first deer. Her guide sucks though.

She is ready now. Last time she shot a pig with a rifle, it squealed a ton and she wasn't ready for that again. After my shot and the single squeal she said, oh I can do that. This morning she was ready to shoot whatever.

It has been a blast teaching her from step 1 to were we are now with her as a hunter. I am proud of the effort she has put in.

Well my neighbor didnít come get his loose cow on my place after I sent him a message last weekend. After being on my place for now 3 weeks, I can keep it right?

I got a few hours of trail cam photos before the cow knocked my camera in the mud again. So frustrating to miss three weeks of trail cam photos in hunting season.

Good news is the Yeti is full, well sort of.

Sheís here and sheís in kill mode.

I may hunt us in the ladder if we can get more West in the wind. I think itís the better spot but the wind is better here in the popup. The ladder wouldnít be terrible so we may try it tomorrow.

Sounds like the day dove hunters are having a good shoot to our south. I think most of our deer would come from that way so this evening might be a bust and we move to our ladder in the morning.

Is this the same neighbor who killed your trees?

We had a couple small bucks in the food plot.

Iím going to gamble and we are going to ladder in the morning. 25% of the time the deer come from down wind but good bucks typically come from upwind we have in the morning.
