I'm hoping the boss decides it's to cold to work mornings and I'm hunting.

Oh Iím excited to hunt it for sure. Seems like this is about the time our hill country deer start really putting on a show and add a GOOD cold front.....you bet your hiney Iím going to be there! Now Iím trying to decide which stand to hunt first lol. It will also be the first time Iíve stayed in the RV in a freeze so that could get interesting.

Small ceramic electric heater will warm up an RV. About $25 at Walmart and works well in my 23'. Just turn it on when you get there and give it time to work.

Im good inside, its outside that worries me lol. I don't want to wake up to frozen hose or anything else. I was thinking of using some insulating boards, cutting them in half and using them as skirting then putting a small heater under the belly of the rv to keep things from freezing. My dealer told me to put pool noodles around my fresh water hose and that would work lol.

That sounds like a good plan for the trailer.

Won't be as cold but I'm going watch the front roll in down at the lease in victoria. Trying to decide if I want to flounder fish or hunt monday morning before it gets here though. Tough decisions these days.....

Good luck with your hunt I'll be looking for the live hunts!

I ended up chasing likely the largest buck Iíve ever seen on any of the ranches I hunt. (My biggest is the 151Ē buck from last year). I kept giving me the slip. Iím going to try again tomorrow though. Suppose to be 22* here.

In bed. Full moon means u can see deer in the pasture my RV overlooks. Makes it tempting to stay up for the exotics but Iím whooped after processing both axis. Sure hope that toad makes a stop nearby tomorrow. Thanks for the luck, hopefully it helps!!

Still not running cameras Bobby. Otherwise Iíd have known about that toad on Tuscany! I think it helps keep the life in hunting for me, never knowing what will step out.

Just filled a doe tag. Iím currently walking and stalking. About to head over where I last saw her and confirm, then pull her to the side and keep stalking the ranch for Bill. (I decided to name that big buck this morning lol)

I passed on a young but very impressive 8. It was too cold to get pictures.
