Meaty was off the doe Sunday night so I made a hunt Monday morning then bailed pretty early. The old man left some ladder stands and a tripod. I pulled them out and at least got the tripod going for another set. He was on camera a few times last night. Finally getting some of our does back on camera too. Thursday afternoon should be my next hunt.

New tripod set

Your persistence should pay off! I'm headed up to Newton today to hand corn for Thursday afternoon and Friday morning. The weather is looking perfect right after the front.

I enjoy persistently seeing no deer I guess lol. Just showered and pointed north. Should be in by 2:15ish. A big doe group is now in the hand corn pen where Meaty visits. Should up my chances of seeing him but also going to be more difficult with a bunch of spooky bitches. Some days I can update, some days itís no bars. This will be my last hunt til sun pm.

Headed north. Should be in by 3ish. No sightings on camera last 2 nights. Iím going to hunt the tripod with the westerly wind. Itís 350 yards from the feed pen he frequents the most. Iíll be happy to see a deer. Pretty sure this will be another no service spot.

It's my first sit in 2 week's. 7 does and all waited for the dinner bell. They have acorns, oats and corn all within 20 yards of them.

When there was no corn left from last night they are acorns and oats and waited for the spin.

Pops has been here since Friday and seen nothing slick heads and young bucks..and those have been rare

I got out early. Put up a new pen with the left over panels at the tripod and put 150# of hand corn piled in each of our pens. I may get to hunt this evening not positive yet. Wife is battling some food poisoning. Not sure if Iím on little one duty or not.

Busy day but a red moon so I was able to slip in by 4 pm on my best access spot. He showed at 5:30 at the apple pen 350 yards from me. Very frustrated but glad he made a mistake. Feels killable now that he showed in daylight without a doe.

Headed north. Not sure if Iíll go to apple or stay with the tripod. We really set up the tripod because a south wind is not ideal for the apple pen. My buddy has bumped deer twice on a south wind when headed in for afternoon sits. Once hr said for sure was a lone buck. Last night he was in the apple pen with a SE wind. I think the plan in my head is to hunt the tripod, bail around 10 and go do my home inspection then get back in earlier with different access into the apple pen. Iíll update when I can.

ďMeatyĒ has taken on a new name for me and my best friend that have been staying hooked on him. Weíve gone to calling him ďThe GhostĒ. He certainly haunts our dreams. We both have 4 other properties scattered around texas but we have spent pretty much all free time on this tiny spot after this deer lol.

About to head in. A buddy and his brother have an old wives tale that of you happen to catch a Randy Travis song on the radio when headed to the stand you are going to kill. Iíve certainly disproven this tale numerous occasions but Iím here for it. Clicked the radio on this morning and hit scan and first rattle out of the box Randy comes on. Itís a good morning to kill.

Headed north. Going to go in the way I normally bring corn In, instead of our access trail into the back of the stand. I never saw him on camera again last night so I doubt he is bedded close but just going to be safe and change it up. Gonna be warm and windy but maybe it will happen
