Default I am that guy

I'm driving to the lease the evening before opening day with a feeder in the back of the truck. But don't laugh too hard if you see me. Just replacing an older feeder that's been feeding all year.

"That Guy" would also replace it Friday afternoon before opening day instead of Sunday night before he heads home.

It's easier to just refill the feeder that is already there. that way all you would need to take is a ladder and corn.

Remember to tie everything in good and drive safe. Good luck this weekend.

You will be lost in the dozens of others. Some of them will be hauling stands as well.

You should hunt in E Texas, all we need are wire cutters and a good spotlight !

Nope, 1st Saturday in November.


We have a "that guy" contest every year, but you have to be hauling a blind to win.

I set my stand up last weekend. It's part of having children, priorities get shifted. ��

I don’t think the opening day drive to the land would be the same without passing “that guy”! Thank you for being that guy!

I might be the winner this year then.

A relative left a window open on my old one and a couple owls made it their home for the last 8 months. The smell could gag a maggot.

Finally got time to finish a new one and will be hauling it down and setting it up this weekend. if I have enough time I may even hunt out of it too.

Then wears all that camo to town for breakfast tacos so everyone can see he's a hunter.

This is mandatory. If you're not in camo at the local cafe, you aint no deer hunter.

If I got $10 for every trailer I’ll see headed down 20 today loaded down with stands and feeders... I’d make enough to pay for the two bottles of Makers I just bought.
