Itís about that time. Just finished my first home inspection and headed to my second with an Academy pit stop planned. Iíll be in by 4pm when the wind switches. I picked up a new property I call 3 oaks, still hunt the ďgrass farmĒ and the river as well. Iíll be bouncing around to all 3 with Oklahoma and my cousins Lee Co ranch mixed in

I made an opening weekend trip with the purpose of getting my FIL a deer with archery equipment at my cousins ranch. We were able to get it done and I doubled up with a doe the same morning as well.




Iíll update after my next inspection when Iím headed in.

Ive been taking it pretty easy waiting on a deer to show worth hunting. The new 3 Oaks place has come through despite being only a 40 acre piece. This deer showed the last two nights in the food plot with a group of 9 does that are regulars. First mature buck on the place and he is a hammer. Named him Meat.

Just finished up with another inspection and called my wife to see about the birthday party this afternoon. She just gave me the go ahead to skip out and go after Meaty. Hope to be in by 330. Lease mate will be hunting the food plot. Iíll slip into a ladder stand on the far back corner of the property. Will update once settled

Iím in. Service is tough, it was a lot harder getting in this spot than I thought. Been in a good hour. Trail is at 16 yards with wind in the face. Iím on the backside of a 10 yr old clearcut. There is a creek to my left and an over grown patch thatís about to become another food plot. New old deer on cam. 6.5 yr old plus 8 point. Great deer but wonít score. No pics getting out today and Iíll update after dark

Hard to fill doe tags when you're expecting ol' big buck to step out any minute... Good decoys!! Most years, I never get my does because I always am waiting for what's following them...

Found a new stand on 3 oaks. The old man before us planted some fruit trees along the back side of some planted pines. I was able to get it cleaned up and planted before the rain. Found a real solid dead head from years past just off the new plot. Finally headed back in to hunt this afternoon. I havnt hunted in a about 10 days

Iíve been hunting here and there when the weather was right. Made a sit Friday morning and had a 4 point come by and a deer blow me when the wind swirled. Had to work saturday morning and I got skunked Sunday morning after sitting til 11. Weíll come to find out on Saturday morning the deer Iíve been hunting was under my stand for 2 hours with a doe. Iím slipping in this morning til about 12 then Iíll need to head to an inspection. Service is non existent at this spot and is one of the reason for no updates. Hopefully today is the day
