We'll be back around Nov 6 (pending cold weather) for 10 days of daylight to dark hunting action.
Thanks to everyone for all the support.

I'll update when I get back.

Finally headed back to Kansas!!!!

The last 10 days have crept by slower than a 3 legged turtle.
I left Seminole Tx (Work) at 3:00 this morning. Should work out just right to be on a stand this evening for the first, of a potential 10 day hunt.

The weather looks awesome! Not sure we could have hit it at a better time. Clark will meet me in town today and well both be making all day sits until we kill, or run out of days to hunt.

If you have hunted in Kansas, you know weather trumps everything as far as deer movement. Our cell cameras have shown more movement in the last week and it should get even better as this front rolls in.

All 3 of our target bucks, (Bog Bob, High & Tight, Trashy 8) are still on our property, as per cameras. If everything works out, one of them should be a permanent Tx resident in the next 10 days.

Hang in here with me, and Ill keep it live as possible.

Settled in!!!!

What a beautiful day to be in a tree in Kansas.
I'm set up in the same ladder stand I was in 2 weeks ago when I had my first encounter with Big Bob. NNE is sound and steady.
Trees are missing a lot of leaves since my last trip. And still shedding.
It's 53 deg and sunny.
Turkeys are making their rounds in the creek bottom to my West.

Clark is in our sweet spot. He is at the back of out property hunting the edge of a cedar thicket with a cut corn field to his South. He already has a dink feeding on acorns.

Big Bob has made multiple appearances at both if these sets. And Trashy 8 has made several visits to Clark's set as well.

Gonna sit back and enjoy the evening hunt. I'll update soon.

Just had a small buck running across pasture to my South. Caught glimpses of him thru the leaves.

Turkeys have milled off.

It sure is peaceful this evening.

Young buck worked a scrape 20 yards from Clark's stand then found him a doe to aggravate.
He is having a great hunt so far.

Trucks are unloaded, bags are unpacked and food in our belly’s.
We’ll have the same winds tomorrow, so we’ll either swap stands or we’ll be back in the same sets as this evening.

Thanks for all the support and positive comments.

We’ll be back in the morning.

Buck that came by Clark mature roman nose or just pic quality? Looks post mature and lacking head gear on one side.

Looking forward to tomorrow's updates!

Must be pic quality.
