Jeff and his girlfriend made it into camp late last night. Cayci slept in and Jeff is over in Gray Co. I haven’t hunted this stand yet but the wind is perfect. I saw a really good framed deer driving in and then a magnum 7pt tried to breed my truck right before I turned in the gate. It’s warm and breezy this morning, we’ll see how it goes.

Sorry guys, I got off the stand pretty early as nothing at all was happening. Found a doe in the county road that looked to be head shot so we did some investigating. Best I can tell is she was hit by a car and then they shot her in the head to end the suffering. Went then and threw up a box stand. Patrick is heading to grab a sheet of tin and we’re all gonna get a power nap in and get back to it.

Sorry for the lack of updates. Hunters are showing up and we still had a ton of punch list items to knock out. Heading in late as usual. Burr went to Kville and I’m on my way to the Snow Cone Stand again. I’ll update as it happens.

Good covey of quail here at the feeder but pretty dead since the cows rolled in. I can’t see or hear them but they’re still in the shelter belt somewhere to my west.

Really nice framed big mature deer feeding on acorns ~600yds out. Can’t tell a lot about him but what I can see looks nice.

So right after the update about the 6 I had a full grown man roll in! This isn’t a deer that I know. Giant body, mega 8. 17” wide, 5” brows, 13” 2’s 10-11” 3’s really good beams and strong mass.

He was at between 35 and 23 for 10min. When he finally got right to shoot I couldn’t see through my peep. Pop up blind got me on light this evening but an awesome encounter nonetheless. See y’all in the morning and hell yes I will have my rifle.

2 more little bucks in the pen.

I’m set up on the same property as yesterday but on the other end. It isn’t exactly where I want to be but the wind is a little janky for the draw I wanted to watch. Movement here and on the cell cams seems a little slow this morning but mornings have seemed slower the last few days. I have some kind of bird on top of the blind making all kinds of noise and getting the deer weird. Check back in a bit.

Remington 700 M40 LR in 7mm Mag. Id planned on watching a long draw snd having a long shot possibility and not sitting in a bow blind with s feeder at 18yds lol. Theres also potential for a long shot here too but Im definitely a little over gunned... or at least over scoped.

Got a buck of some kind pushing some does around 600 yards to the east. They have no problem covering that distance in a hurry.

Right there with you, I have two weeks off starting Wednesday so I thought it would be easier to miss. When I started seeing all of the trucks loaded down headed North on 59 yesterday it hit me hard!
