Ill keep yall updated with what Will has happening. If I finish my work in time Im gonna park on a field and see whats going on. I need to do that anyways.

I might have started thinking about those tips that would come if one of my hunters shot him lol.




Were poking the fire and cooking supper. Gonna take up the track in a bit. Im thinking its 1 lung, liver, and paunch. Hes gonna need some time, I just hope we beat the coyotes and pigs to him. Hes definitely not a world class deer but hes an 18 wide near P&Y 8pt and a 6 year old girl that shot her first buck so you can bet your *** well cross the world looming for this babys deer and I bet hes dead 200yds from the shot.

You should have shot that sucker! 30", and I've never even heard of seeing Aoudad around Shamrock. Are y'all seeing them now?

Headed in now to go see if we can find Stink Bait’s deer. If it’s where they watched it lay down we’ll find it tonight. If it crossed the south fence we’ll call that land owner in the morning.

Awesome!! A big congrats to the young lady! I will say this, I’m not far from ya (8 miles due N of Childress) and if you have to leave a deer laying anymore than prob an hour, maybe less, coyotes WILL get it! They are THICK out here. Hate that, but glad she got her buck! Good Huntin, and God Bless, Rusty

Those dogs had a field day. Used to hunt a place up near Crowell and they were terrible there too. Friends son shot a buck and we found it a few hours later with nothing but the head....they’d ate all the meat.

They’re definitely a problem here and we’ve been working on them pretty hard. Huge thank you to Mr. Derrick for letting us cross his fence in the recovery. I’m on my way to Pampa to pick up a fridge for camp and still have plenty to do before time to hunt this evening. We didn’t hunt this morning so we could go in after KK’s deer and of course my big 10 rolled in at 8:30... His days are numbered.

Running later than I like but I’m headed in. One more sit at the snow cone stand and then I’ll give that farm a brake.

Wind is ideal again and this set hasn’t been sat on since yesterday morning. I’m curious to see how they respond to the new feeder. This cell cam had an antenna issue which has since been resolved so we’ll see how it goes. I’m in an hour before the feeder spins so I wasn’t as late as I thought.

Big ol fat doe just slid in and got friendly with one of the bucks in the pen. She pulled the whole bachelor group off with her. That’s the very first signs of “rut activity” that I have seen. 3 bucks came in together and I’m still seeing multiple bachelor groups but she sure acted flirty.
