Default Sambo and Aly Live!

Got my 19yo daughter with me today. She’s green lit on whatever she wants…as long as it’s legal. She hunted hard last year and managed to kill a spike on last Sunday of the season. Her brother shot a nice buck his first sit last year. We saw lotta does last year but after doe days and some young bucks that weren’t legal. Saw the spike she ended up taking almost every sit but she wanted to hold out for a nice one but that never happened so she took the spike last day of the season right at last light. Weather ain’t great but I’m spending time with her so I’ll take it. Hunting same bottom as me and Gus.

Last hunt of the weekend. And with exception of thanksgiving morning poss, last of November due to other commitments…..making memories again. Neighbor to south of us told my cousin who owns the land we hunt that he saw biggest buck he’s seen in area we hunt last two days. Hoping he shows…..or a doe….or a pig….or a coyote….stay tuned for updates!

They are just not coming to wheat field like last year. Kids have killed a couple but we haven’t seen many…..last year we would see 5-7 per sit.

Need to get a cheap 4 wheeler so we can get to the top of the hill and hunt that ridge. After my small stroke I dont have the endurance to walk that far.

Make walking to the top of that hill a life goal, and I bet you can. Start small and build up your cardio and endurance. Think of how surprised your kids will be when you walk up there with them!!

Hope yall pop a good one soon.

They might too old to hunt by the time that happens

I know you are right though. From the road to where we hunt is probably 250-300yds. I can do that fairly easy. It’s when we shoot something and have to drag it to the gate, then walk to truck that gets me. Almost didn’t make it the other night. But I’m getting better.

You're not up by the pond?

I'm curious if the he dam is still there?
Last time I was up there the ravine was 5-6' deep.

Told the landowner about it

Back at it this morning. Set up a spot up on the hill yesterday. Saw nice buck on way out yesterday. Drove to second gate and walked up on the hill. Won’t mean anything to anyone but me after the stroke….my endurance ain’t what it used to be. Stay tuned…..I think this is going to be her morning…..she hunted hard last year….she deserves a nice one this year.
