I'm back at the pop up where the hell raising took place the other day. I wish I knew how to take a screenshot on this phone, this is a cool looking spot on the map. Also after looking on the map it sure seems like the guy that was shooting the other day had to be on my side of the fence.

I'm probably not going to make a marathon hunt this morning. We have a leasework day tomorrow and I want to get a head start on it. Also if anyone knows of a place in Jasper/ Woodville/ Lufkin area that I can go grab a Summit Goliath shoot me a heads up. I lost my tree climbers in a flood last year and have been all over Lufkin looking and can't find one.

You may be able to call Tolar feed and Outdoors in Woodville. Believe they close at 1:00 today and open back up Monday morning. They may be able to at least tell you if they have them.

No sir it is HOT!!!

Caught 3 more "trespassers" today. They were former lease members in getting their stuff. That's the last free one. They had until Aug 15 to get their stuff, now it belongs to us. The next person that is inside ou gate will be prosecuted even if they have to be held at gunpoint.

We worked like rented mules. Repaired fences, set posts and gates, replaced some chains and locks, put up posted signs, mowed some more lanes, and set/ filled a couple of feeders. Weíll be back on a stand in the morning that still hasnít been hunted.

It's plum nasty right now but temps have dropped 10į since I pulled out my driveway. Gonna pull up to camp and jump in my Jul rain gear and sneak in to the stand in this hurricane.

Threw the rain gear on and slipped in. Had some sweetgums growing up around a stump that we couldn’t mow so while it was pouring I slipped down there with some loppers and cut them down.

There’s a 125yd lane to the east running through a 6-10 year old pine thicket that dead ends at a SMZ with some hardwoods in it. There’s a feeder spinning down there. Another 150yd lane to the north that’s running parallel with the top of the ridge. 100yds down there’s a little north to south drain crossing it. There’s also a feeder on that lane but I don’t think it’s spinning. There’s a 150yd lane to the south that parallels the same ridge between a pine/ hardwood mix and the pine thicket.

Rain has slowed to a light drizzle and it feels like the temps are on a slow steady drop. It could be a really good day!

Lane to the east



Lane to the north



Lane to the south



Itís traveling from SW to NE so it looks like itís gonna be pretty steady all day. Looks like just rain on the radar though, maybe the bad stuff is over.

Been a bit of a cluster today... Ran back home to borrow a climber because I really wanted to bow hunt my new spot I set up in the bottom. Grabbed my bow, Ozonics, spare battery, pack, bow hangers, thermocell etc... I’m getting everything together and my water heater is toast. Chased that issue around and ordered one for pick up tomorrow. I’m about to walk out the door and get a call that 4 lease members and their kids are coming. GREAT!!! Love having everyone out and especially seeing those kids in the woods! They all have extremely busy jobs and we were late getting on here so most have only seen it one time. I run out the door (running late) on the phone and trying to make sure everyone knows how to get where they’re wanting to go. Get to camp and was going to get dropped off early because it’s a pretty good hike into where I was going to hang my bow stand. Anyone want to guess what piece of equipment is vital to bow hunting success??? ARROWS!!! I forgot my **** arrows at the house! Anyways... I’m back where I hunted this morning which could be a lot worse... I like this spot pretty good! Been in about 30-45min just been busy txting and updating.
