Saw a barely legal 8 at first light. Let him walk. If no one shoots him he will be nice in a couple years

I saw a spike (maybe, so I didnít shoot) but he was trotting with 3 does. It was quite interesting to see. I let them walk, but if they make the same mistake on Monday, itís game over.

Well she is just an average doe so she will help fill the freezer. Hope to get a buck this year, so I will be buck hunting unless monster doe steps out.

We failed at the derby on Friday, but we were in the 3rd series . Its a learning curve for me in this sport. Going to Meeker Oklahoma in 12 days.

First time out Aquila yesterday, didn’t see anything. But someone decided it was a good day to use a chainsaw and cut a tree down near their house 30 mins before it was time to leave. Could hard the tree crashing down.

You have got to love public hunting. Had someone see where I've been baiting, and come and build a ground blind right on my setup. I guess the fact that they didnt "cut or break any branches" makes them ethical though... so props to them. I was hunting private land this weekend, but will be on public soon. Just have to adapt and setup accordingly... Congrats to all of the people who had luck this weekend!

Yes sir, it's a little dated. I got gray hair now. Guess I could have my hair photo shopped in for updating the photo.


Still my biggest bow hog. Biggest hog is 370lbs on the scales from 10 miles north of Throckmorton, TX. 6 months before the black one.




Carlock, Eric, great to see yall posting!

Sitting in the blind this morning and trying to figure out how to register my canoe with a trolling motor. Downloaded the form but donít know if really have to register the trolling motor itself or just the boat? Ordered trolling motor but like to register Monday if donít need numbers off the trolling motor

Good luck everyone. Legal shooting in 7 mins
