Ya it’s an Oak alright. Doesn’t look curvy but you mix The narrowness of it with the shape of it and it was hard to get a solid bite it was a very wobbly climb had to climb like a cork screw . The trees in this area are to big to small or have way to many low limbs . Like you said I’m really looking forward to the climb down. At least I have my safety harness on

Yea! The problem is that I don't get weekends off and he is in school . We are going to work hard on the holidays when we can hunt together. I'm going to put him in my best spots hopefully he can shoot a big one .

Big thanks to NF Hunter for saving my tired *** on 149 today. Decided to exit the woods about 2.5 miles away from the truck and the man saw me and pulled over. Did a little hog stalk / work out this morning, no hog, but got the work out. I was just like this dog, but in the bed of his truck soping wet with sweat.

I think I might be a little crazy. 30 ft up in this pine tree in this wind. Good luck to anyone else crazy enough to be out here. I saw some deer up on their feet feeding, so I figured I can't kill one on my couch....

You can go to recreation.gov and put cagle in as the campground and it will bring up everything you need to know about the campground. Can make reservations too.

Went to a new spot today. 1.5 miles in. Saw 2 does and a coyote. Found 2 new spots that are littered with tracks. I think I might be able to get lucky next weekend.
Had a Blast and Cast Men's Ministries member come video my hunt. He also filmed my testimony. When he's got it done I'll post it up on FB. Can't wait.
Had a great day and I think I'm getting excited again.

Thanks, but I've been on their site. Not much of a map of the camp ground.
