Alright folks, in the blind here at Richland Springs on a management hunt. Me and 8 other guys from work are looking to fill 10 more buck tags. There are a couple of really good 8s walking around that I would love to bust. If so, it would be my first high fence deer.

There will be plenty of alcohol consumed, cigars smoked, and BS spewed. Ill keep you guys up to date as I can! Im in the By The Road stand for this evening.

Looks like many are. I don't want to hang them by the antlers, that's for sure. All is quite here still. We had to rush, and I got in the stand only 5 mins before the feeder went off. Still plenty of time.

Deer have moved on. I'm on my last beer. About to close the windows and hot box this stand with this bad boy. Another hunter is currently trying to decide if an 8 is 2.5 or 3.5 lol

Well the flood gates opened! As I lit my cigar I look up to see three bucks walk out. 1 was a definite 3.5 + eight. I eased the 243 out and touched one off! He ran off, but hoping he's not far.

Tight behind the shoulder. 95 grain hornady Superformance sst. He looked hit when he ran off. I can't see blood and don't have a light. Might wonder in the brush a bit till the ranger arrives.

Back at it this morning. I was paired up with fellow TBHer and colleague Aclick. We are set up at the End of the Road blind. Little chilly this morning! And my head hurts for some reason too!

Had some early excitement. A big 8 that was every bit as big as mine stepped out. Looks like the feeder isn't working, so he stayed in the brush waiting, then finally turned and left. Tried to get on him as he left, but brush was too thick.

Feeder just spun. Caught a glimpse of big boy again. He's hanging out about 150 yards away in thick brush. Just heared a shot too
