Awesome to see the bow returned. Thatís awesome luck and shows there is still a good side of humanity. Good on you Irving.

Was planning to go out tomorrow. Got down to my place and decided to eat my whataburger before I unpacked. Not only did they get my order wrong, there was something in the burger that cracked one of my teeth. Looks like Iíll be heading back to the city. Hopefully they can get me in early so I can get back for the evening hunt.

W lake still dropping. Sitting at 3.67 feet above normal at the moment. They also reduced the water release to 11,609 cfs. PK has a minimal release of 294 cfs. And Grandbury is releasing 880 cfs.


A lake is 2.42 feet above normal. And releasing 940 cfs.


I'm about ready to bust some birds. Maybe wet a hook too.

Me too! If only there were ducks in Texas. Maybe this year we will see one! Two more kid deer hunts and we will switch gears for a while. May even go before the split.

Got it done tonight. Many thanks to my good friend for help fending off the coyotes while we got her out. Straight through the heart, passed through the neck and the arrow went straight into the neck and lodged by the skull. Didnít make it too far...

If it was in a fight there should be broken stubs I would think. If it shed its antlers already I would be concerned it was sick. Did your friend notice anything out of the ordinary while processing it?

There was just holes in its head, like when they drop in the spring. Was just weird I thought to be totally gone, vs nubs of broken antler. He posted it late last night as they where skinning it so not sure if they found anything unusual with the meat

They usually check/drive by when everybody is in the field out hunting in the mornings before 9AM. But I've also seen-em checking thing out around noon on occasion.

Was it setting next to a Red Ford Ranger, with a Mathews, Texas Tech and few other stickers on the back glass?

Normally I remember to pull it down from the visor, to the center of the dash in the window. However, my nephew and I got there little late and I was trying to rush in get corn thrown, blind setup and forgot to pull it

Thanks, I was a lot more in tune with what was going on down here last year. Been splitting time between here and Grapevine this year, also prepping for a drawn hunt down south.

As a tip, when I get my stand hung one of the first things I do (even in spots I have hung before) is draw a couple times and check different angles. This accomplishes a few things including interference of small twigs and branches. Makes sure my bow is good, makes sure my bad shoulder isnít going to act up, my harness and clothing arenít going to cause an issue, adds an extra level of confidence, etc... all of these things have prevented me from taking animals in the past. I feel your pain, there is little worse than putting in the investment in time, effort and money to have a small thing prevent success. Things will always go wrong, but I have learned the hard way preventing what you can is critical. Good luck on connecting next time out!
