Default Big Ace's Live Hunts 2018

Live in Wilson County.
Starting off my 2018 season tonight. I haven't had a chance to hunt due to my wife having surgery 2 weeks ago. I came out early today to add corn and check the camera. My popup was knocked down by the cows, and the camera wasn't taking pics. Bad SD card. I filled up the feeder and threw out some hand corn. I got out here a little late, but here we go. Nice and muggy this afternoon. I shot some pigs a month ago so if the deer don't show, hopefully the piggies will.Name:  image.jpg

Feeder spun at 6:50. It sounds like a war going on out here with all the acorns dropping. Nothing is moving so far. I hate pop ups. Way too hot.

Okay, long day but back at it again. I moved my blind and feeder to a new area. The new neighbor put his new house 20 yards off of the fence line directly in line with my feed pen. I was about 75 yards off of the fence in the middle of the property. Small acreage 50 ish acres and it's very long and skinny. I had some picstures of his pit bull dog and I had to make a decision. SSS. Or just move my stuff. I saw the dog yesterday evening and told my inlaws about it. They own the land. They weren't concerned about the dog being over there. Either way I moved my stuff. So today after the morning hunt I moved my pop up and feeder. I had to unload the feeder first. I scouted a new area and put everything up. I spent the rest of the afternoon cutting shooting lanes. Feeder just spun, so here we go. Dang pictures won't load.

Let's just say that tenderloin will be for dinner tomorrow night thanks to a good friend and a dog. I didn't make the best shot. I'll update more pics tomorrow morning.

I moved it last weekend. Popup, feeder, and feedpen. I brushed in the popup and only was able to shoot out of one window. The deer really don't notice it this way.

I put the tape measure on him this am. 16" inside and roughly 20" beams. What do you think he will score? I don't know how to score very good, so when I get home I'll have a friend score him and teach me.
