Probably mid October ish depending on daytime movement. I need to prep the small spot better for FIL soon.

Just grabbed coffee. Should be at the ranch in 30 min. Going to park on a location and slip into the back side of a hay field. Good access and hand corn waiting. Covert has been not working. Main reason for this trip

Need an easterly wind for this spot, last east wind today til the weekend. Good deer in the area just not sure if has been by or not with the camera being down: Iíll update when I get in.

Headed to Conroe to help judge a Conroe Swat CrossFit style competition. Supposed to be over at 12:30 then Iíll be headed to the cattle ranch. Iíll be on doe patrol, our quota is supposed be 7 does a person. I barely shoot one a year but he is pretty adamant and the numbers are high so Iím going to work on a couple tonight and tomorrow am. Weekend and Monday is full with my daughters birthday festivities.

Iíll update on the way out. Plan is to hang a used Alpha Lone Wolf set up I picked off the classifieds this evening. Weíve been hand Corning a small oak flat on the river bank. There are a dozen does hitting it.

Pretty cool event. Swat teams from all over the world competing. Snipers nest, building clearing, pistol range and the fitness test.

250 m run
30 burpees over the atlas stone
160# stone carry 30 m
30 shoulder to overhead 95#
30 m walk with barbell racked
30 deadlift 185#
30 wallballs
100 m sprint back

They cut me lose early. This was the fitness test first year being added in. A couple guys killed it time wise and lots of guys opted out lol.
