Default 2019/20 live!!!

Itís that time of year again boys and girls!!! I havenít gotten to make a single hunt so far this year and I am chomping at the bits for 6pm to get here!!! I had an opportunity to get on a lease up in the Panhandle this year. Turns out that lease is closer to my rig than home is so Iím making a short hunt up there before heading home. I have 3 stand locations and 2 of which have cell cams on them (that stopped sending pics about 5 days ago when the squirrels chewed through the solar panel wires again). The two cams sending pics show signs of some really nice 2-4 year old deer and 1 or 2 that are shooter age. I went up about 3 weeks ago with Steph and the kids and did a little dove hunting/ stand prep and theyíre in love with the place. I told Steph to jump on a plane to Amarillo and Iíd pick them up on my way bit she decided to wait until thereís a chance for snow for the kiddos lol.

Anyways, itíll be a relatively short hunt as Iíve been away from home too long already but I have full intentions of dumping a doe at least! Thereís a few pigs around, lots of deer, some turkeys, and hopefully the older bucks have gotten on their feet! As soon as I get home I have another place close to home that I havenít even seen yet. HSBTGarcia twisted my arm and made me get on with him. He says itís good but you canít always trust a guy that looks as white as me but has a messican last name!

6pm canít get here quick enough! 2019 has been a long and busy year. Lots of cool fun stuff to talk about while Iím not seeing deer in the pines so weíll catch up on all of that as we go. Iíll update as I can and look forward to another year with all of yíall knot heads!

You ainít wrong Charlie! Thereís like 4 oak trees in all of Wheeler County and I have a bow stand in every one of them lol. I did pick me up one of those big food plot guns too. I got a Remy 700 LRM40 in 7Mag with a Swaro Z5 5-25x52 on top of it. Priority 1 is to sneak a Slick Trick into a doeís gizzards. Priority 2 is sight that sucker in! After deer season Iím gonna tinker on it a little and see if I can get it to really shoot.

Shout out to Academy in Lubbock!!! I literally need this guy to unlock this case and hand me a range finder and I’ll be on my way. Instead he is helping this guy fill out every lime of his gun paperwork. I literally need 3 seconds of his time and have told him this. Red hair is getting redder!!!

Pinchť vacas!!! I hate cows!



Well since this hunt is on a pause Iíll tell you a little about this place. Itís pretty open country up here. Thereís little oak mots and shelter belts scattered here and there but not a lot of stuff to hide in. Thereís a pretty good sized draw that runs from the SW corner to the NE corner.

The stand Iím in is an elevated pop up on the edge of the draw and a shelter belt. Pretty basic set up. Feeder at 20 and my wind blowing out to the open. I bumped two really good deer walking in. 1 was a 140ish 3 year old 9pt that I recognized. The other was a more mature deer. He never really spooked and I watched him for a pretty good min but never got a great look at his horns.

Before good light I had deer come from all directions to the pen. Iím not sure whatís up with the feeder but corn is piled up under it and it never spun. I suspect coons have broken something. Cows are starting to move off, thereís a pile of do es and blue jays in the corn and itís still 28į with a light SW breeze.

Let one of these does come back and yíall are gonna see a bloody err!

Dead here. The other cam didn’t show much going on either. I do kind of wish I’d sat there. We have a troublesome boar hog and he’s been in there all morning.
