Default Live Hunt in West Texas through Wednesday

Headed to Rochester, TX. North of Haskell and West of Throckmorton. Bow hunt only of course. Looking for a solid Great Texas Eight, but also hoping to tempt my budget with something bigger. Hunting with Roger Roewe of Roewe Outfitters and Webfoot Connection.
Leaving the house in 20 mins for the short 4-5 hr drive with fellow TBH'er.
Will hunt this PM through Wednesday AM.
Follow along for some LDP's.

Ok guys. I've failed to manage expectations correctly. Looks like a cell tower is out or something because cell service is non existent where it was normally adequate in previous visits.

Saw nada this PM. The guide and my hunting buddy saw a 140" buck after dropping me off which is encouraging. Tomorrow we will set the same spots Am and then place lock ons in what little timber there is to hunt this whopper. Attached is a pic of of my set. A pop up on the edge of a 100 acre wheat field. Wind gusts of 35 mph keep the deer laid low. .

Nada this AM. Both of us have relocated. Buddy in a kick butt pop brushed in really well on the edge if scattered trees a pasture and large wheat field. I'm in a lone wolf lock on at the edge of a smaller wheat field. I'm right on the trail so it's going to be close quarters. Winds have settled to just about 10 mph gusts. Our guide saw bucks fighting at my spot this AM and yesterdat he saw two good bucks where my buddy is now. I have 1 bar of cell service at this spot. Big win already .

Thanks to the few of you that showed interest and wished me well on this trip.
Without good cell service it was really next to impossible to post updates. I saw next to NOTHING for 4 days. Squirrels and turkeys was it! Can't believe it. Not the fault of the guide or outfitter. Just how it goes sometimes. Buddy had a 150" deer at 100 yds. We relocated him the next day but the buck did not show. We tried hard and learned a lot. Key takeaway: if you have room. Bring your own options with you. We employed the use of the lone wolf lock on, an extra pop-up, and a ladder stand with ease.

Just saw this. Live hunts see more action in around the campfire section.
I was out west this weekend at my lease and was skunked 4 out of 5 sits. It is tough hunting with the mild weather and green pastures.

On a side note is that a dove decoy in the bottom left of the turkey pic?

It is! Was waiting for someone to comment but admittedly my attempt at a live hunt thread blew up in my face due to poor cell service.

It's sort of a calling card of mine b/c no one else
Does it

Got the idea from a guy who was RELIGIOUS about brushing in his pop ups and then he would put a dove decoy by the black hole

Sort of a comfort decoy. It works. Can't hurt.
