Never had these guys show up. Pulled cards over the weekend and it looks like they have been hanging around for a week or so. Kids are calling dibs already.Name:  Auadad2.jpg

Nice! What side of town are you on? We also have been waiting on them to show up on our place, our neighbors have seen them quite a bit but we have yet to have them show up on our place.

We are south of Roosevelt on 314. I don't actually want them. Large neighbor was flying choppers last week and probably pushed them to us.

Had a great week of hunting in Sonora last week. Weather was hot the first few days, but then a nice breeze came through the rest of the trip to cool things down. We had a large group down there and ended up with around 14 axis down. I ended up with my biggest axis to date with 35" x 34" main beams. He scored somewhere around 155. Our measuring rope was not the best, but i did measure the main beams pretty accurate and several times. Besides that we had a buck shot with a fresh horn stuck in its neck and a broken main beam as well as an old buck with no teeth. Overall was a great trip.

The story on my buck:

Was stalking around 6:30pm and came up downwind on a group laying down under the mesquite. A couple small bucks were playing around sparring and some others eating. I was on this trip mainly for meat so wasn't trying to shoot anything big, but I had told myself that the first two days I'd pass on deer in case I ran into a trophy. My buck came into the picture as I was watching them at around 50 yards. At the time I was considering passing on him due to not thinking he was that big. Its funny how being on the ground in mesquite can be deceiving. I watched him as he laid down at 50 yards trying to decide if I was going to pull the trigger. He then got up and chased a doe to about 30 yards from me, but luckily they turned back around and went back to the group. It was at this time I realized his size and his big belly. Unfortunately I had to wait another ten minutes before I got a shot at him. He was rubbing up on some mesquite and didn't present a shot for a bit. The group started moving and I got situated for a shot. When he stepped in to the shooting lane I let the 270 do its job. He was definitely rutting and was fun to get to watch him for a good 30 minutes before taking him down. Allowed for some good memories to be made.

I had a wt doe die while giving birth about a week ago. The buzzards led me to her. It sucks to see them go that way, but itís all part of nature, I guess!!

If a cell phone works there your camera will too assuming you buy one that uses the same provider. I use AT&T cameras West of town and they work great.

I have Verizon. South of town and in the ďbowlĒ Iím in I donít think itíll work. Zero phone service at the feeder locations but do on ridges. Have been told that if I have an extended antenna elevated it may work. Who knows. Just gives me an excuse to make the 7 hr drive to check on things.

Not too far as the crow flys from us. A friend of mine just got on a lease in that area. 12 miles cross country, but hour+ by road.
