1st Leg LIVE!!!
 
Itís been a while but Iím back for a little bit. I took a small hiatus from TBH for a while. My evenings that were once soent loghed on to the canp fire are pretty much filled with a couple of little grimilins climbing on Daddy. Iím checking in forthw first 14 day leg of my season.

I hunted yesterday but was in the river bottom with no signal so i didnt start a thread. Adalee was supposed to have her first kickball game yesterday morning but it rained out so I got in the stand abouf 11:30 or 12 and sat til dark. I saw 2 does and a fawn but none of them gave me an opportunity to shoot. Iím ~20min out from the gate and will be in ďThe North Food Plot StandĒ even though thereís no food plot anymore and even if there was Iíll be 1/4 of the way down the ridge it sits on. Lots of white oaks and pin oaks on the ridge and if theyíre anything like the overcups on the river property I probably need a helmet!

We have a couple of nice deer on camera, but most of our bucks are still pretty inactive at least in the places we have cameras. A fresh new wave of hogs have mase corning a laughable matter so its mostly old school trails, pinch points, and funnel hunting. Iíll post a few pics in a bit. Stephanie and Adalee will be joining me this evening so itíll be an interesting day. Itís good to be back.

At least you donít have to put up with that much longer.

Headed in, Iíll chexk back in when it brightens up a little.

jooger17 09-30-2018 08:17 AM

It hasn’t even really gotten daylight and I just slung and arrow at a doe. I’m not 100% on the shot, she was standing in a pretty dark spot. Left and right should be money. Up and down, I just couldn’t tell. It sounded like a solid hit but I didn’t hear her crash. Gonna sit til 8:30 or so before I go take a peek.

Radar doesnít show much rain for ET at the moment so you should be good rain-wise.
Good luck on the recovery.

Pigs? Two blood trails criss crossing can make for an interesting day.

I’ve got a dozen pigs inside 40yds and no shot. They’re creeping this way.

Anyone want to guess one of the nore critical pieces of information a guy needs to know before taking a shot? I’ll give you a hint... Yardage. Believing you’re taking a 16 yard shot when the distance is actually 32 will result in a clean miss and destroying a root, which sounds an awful lot like a solid hit on a deer ��*♂️

Sorry guys, I’ll do better this evening. Pigs ended up slipping off the same way they came from and never offered a shot.

Deathrow Jethro 09-30-2018 10:00 AM

There are very few things that I like more than the FIRST, decent cold front to engulf the Gulf Coast and Jooger's live hunt thread is certainly one of them.

Welcome back Rojo. Get all this hunting knocked out on your 1st fourteen day stint so we can hit the lake the 2nd stint.

I do have some fishing coming up. Keith Combs Tournament is next sat and 8-10 I have a kid from Tennessee that has cistic fibrosis coming to fish a day with me and a day with Darold Gleason. More likely than not day 3 Iím gonna hand him a shotgun full of 00ís and see how many pigs he can kill!


So Iíd planned on being in the tree by now but I have a wife and ďhurryĒ means something totally different to her than it does to me. Adalee decided to stay with Nene and Bubba so itís just me and the ball and chain. We should be in the tree by 3:30... Unless she has to stop 16 times to pee, or needs a bottle of water, or forgets cars need gas, or stops to take a sunset selfie, or any of the orher 300,000 distractions that enter her mind.

jooger17 09-30-2018 03:47 PM

ďStop in here real quick. Iíve got to grab some water a pee.Ē

I guess it doesnít matter. Weíre gonna be sitting in the truck for a few.

Get em. I think i will take LIl david and let him shoot a fat doe.

jooger17 09-30-2018 05:09 PM

I walked Steph in to juice. It’s been corned 2-3x a week for months, no one has sat it and every morning and evening there’s does, pigs, and 2 shooter bucks like clockwork. She forgot her harness so we had to bail on that. She’s posted up at the only feeder on the place in a pop up. Lots of pig pics and a few does occasionally in the evening. I’m back in the same set as this morning lookimg for revenge. Steph has the green light on anything legal. I’m after does and pigs but if ol big wants to get inside 50yds with a shooting hole I’ll give him a ride to Angelina Co too!

Pigs never made it to me. Hopefully they cut the ridge and head to Steph.

Quackerbox 09-30-2018 07:01 PM

Haha.

Saturday afternoon my wife came out the cabin (just us this weekend) with camo pants, hat,bow in one hand and dead down wind in the other wearing a bra. I was like.....[emoji54][emoji50][emoji2]

Hmmm mmm ahhhh ok

No pics? Good luck to all hunting this evening. Just let two pigs pass, hoping a deer will come down the same trail.

jooger17 09-30-2018 07:23 PM

I’ve got a couple of critters moving down the ridge. Can’t make out exactly what they are just yet.
