Nice! Hopefully our season is better this year. We saw a lot of movement at our place in bow season. In the general season we saw very little movement.

My lease isn't set up to bow hunt very well, but we took them anyway. Put her in a stand with her rifle for pigs/sheep/javalinas and she had a blast. Saturday morning we sat in the same spots. This time I had hogs out past the feeder at 168 yards. Long story short, I killed one and couldn't' find the other. That was fun! Saturday was spent on stand repair as mine had blown over earlier in the year and still wasn't completely repaired. Finished that, took a nap, and headed back out. She still saw lots of deer but no pigs. I saw two does and that was it.

Sunday morning we went up top. She sat in a friends stand. Saw a ton of deer but no pigs or sheep. I sat in my stand and saw some pretty good action. a couple of nice bucks that may be great in a couple years. The batteries had died in the camera so I replaced them on Friday. Pulled the card on Sunday morning and looked at it when I got back home. This is what I found...

He was on camera last year and made it through the season. Glad to see he was still in the area. He is this years target buck for sure.
Did that guy ever get a tag put on him?

Nope! I'm going out this weekend to check feeders/camera and see if he's still around. I have two or three pics of him. One was mid November during the day and the other two are the night time pics. I'm pretty sure i have pics of him from the prior two years as well. That buck doesn't have a pattern that I can see.

Unless the guys on the lease next door whacked him and I haven't heard about it.

I am chomping at the bit to go. This week can't go fast enough. Leaving Friday morning by 0800. Hope to be at the lease by 1400. I'll make my customary food/gas stop in Ozona and then haul @ss! I just hope they have fuel.

I hunt Menard County. The pasture is nice and green and we should have a good group of mature deer this year. As always, this is a great time of year. Good luck to everyone.

I think the fuel issue was an made up issue affecting the eastern folk, there was never any shortage out west.

I'm pretty sure they'll get there soon. Especially if you have any good creek bottoms with water in them.
