Default Trykonroye - LIVE LANWR

Weíll work had me locked down yesterday so didnít get to leave Pearland until 4:15.
Got to the Airbnb around 9:45. Just in time to see the Astros pull off the W.

Got situated and that 3:45 alarm came early.

Got up made a Peak Refuel Peaches & Oats and grabbed a BlackRifle ready to drink.

Left the parking spot around 5.

Bumped a cow nilgai, then a bull, then a whitetail doe. These things are HUGE!

Found a nice spot under a mesquite bush with water nearby and a grassy area.

Wind is 10-15 SSE in my face. Itís a pretty nice morning!

Update:

There are massive gators here! They will scare the day lights out of you.

I’m sorry if I Walked up on you.

Just found a cow and put a stalk on. Got within 50 yds. Shot and missed.

I think I can see another in the next clearing going to try that one!

All in all pretty good first day!

Pics from the day!

Long day 14 hrs in the unit. Chippewas are not for hiking!

Saw lots of nilgai. 1 whitetail. Javelinas. No pigs. No snakes

Had a delicious sandwich my smokin wife made me.

Met some super cool TBHers. The GS has basically taken over LANWR.

Then a delicious Peak Refuel and shiner!

Day tomorrow!!

Headed back out now.

I let the rain chance get to me. Pretty good north wind. Super over cast and a little cool.

Only 3 trucks at parking spot today, me included.

As The Late Great Paul Harvey would say ‘standby for news!’

Weather today is amazing. North wind, overcast, misted a little, coolness in the air.
Brought my leather gloves today. The thorns destroyed my hands. Glovers are a game changer.

Saw a cow and two calves on the way in.

Sat an opening with trails crossing through it for a while. Nothing. May go back and sit that this evening.

Got out and walked a little further in and was standing there answering a text. Looked up and a bull walked out at 20yds. Wasnít ready and he was just over the boundary line.

Found another nice opening with good cover where I could sit and watch the trails.

Itís a beautiful day.

Go Astros!

I just looked up and saw a white patch. It was a bull. At 70 yds. He picked me off in full camo through thick brush. Insane How eagle eye they are!
