Default Opening day Success

Started off sitting in a down pour all morning. Miserable, long, WET sit. Finally had enough of the rain and nothing moving about around 10am so packed it on in. Rained, RAINED 9am-4pm. Walked back to the stand this evening at 4:30 and found ankle deep water over entire pasture. Had little hope of seeing anything this evening. So just sat to enjoy hearing the run off dump back into the creek. 6:50 she pops out wading thru the water grazing on leaves. Gave me a shot at 20yrds. Sent the arrow into pump house and she fell where she stood. First time seeing/doing that. Super stoked!

Sleeping in tomorrow

Thank you all. The pasture is across a creek.
When i got to stand water was between ankle and calf deep in the creek it runs off into. Dragging her back it rose up to waist deep. Should have gotten pics/video.
Was definitely a hunt thatll stick with me awhile.

Good job, Hoggwild. This gives me encouragement for this weekend - which will be my first bow hunt. My son and I are planning on hunting in San Angelo, and there is a 70% chance of rain for the entire weekend. We're going to wear our rain gear and rubber boots and hope for the best. Congratulations on your success.

Regards,

Dave
