Almost live. The first hunt is Dec 28-1st and the second hunt will start around the 11th of January. I know they have taken some good bucks this year, hopefully there are few left. As always Iíll keep you up to date and share trail cam photos but will not be sharing what compartment Iím hunting. I have a few new tricks up my sleeve for the deer this year. I heading down their feeling like David Copperfield but will probably return home feeling like bozo the clown. Those deer are smart.

Man, someone’s eager to get hunting.
We will be there jan8-12 so I may piggy back your thread with some updates in between your hunts.

Yes, I am eager to get this hunt rolling, but the main reason for the thread being early is so I can set a link on my parents computer. It’s much easier doing it in person vs trying to talk them through it over the phone.

Let’s consider this an us thread not a me thread. Anyone who wants to post up their hunts please do so.

First point is a great operation. I heard the deer are moving good down there right now. Couple of 150s and 160+ killed. If that don’t excite you idk what does.

Every year it's the same thing. I think I have everything packed and ready to go, and 5 hours later I'm still loading my truck.

There is a big wind shift predicted between now and 5. The pit I dug today is for the wind shift, so I'm not hunting tonight. I prepared a spot to hunt in the morning and my plan is to hunt the pit tomorrow night. I have several cameras out to let me know what's going on tonight. I'll post up some pictures after dark when I check them.
