Im back in the saddle boys. Burr and I took off this morning after our hunt and a breakfast to knock out a couple of deals. 2 of the hunters in camp (Paul and Charlie) offered to come with us and the help was very much appreciated! We got this tripod set up where I can watch the hedge row west of where I saw the buck yesterday evening and theres a big drain that runs north and south over to my west. The we went over to the Kville pasture and raised the tank blind/ lag bolted it to the base. Ive got a good view and can see a lot of country.

Wind is absolutely hammering. The weather man is at least 10mph off. 74 when I left the truck but supposed to cool off fairly quick this evening. Hang with me, Ill update as I can.

He's off like that EVERY day around Shamrock. On my BIL's place, when the wind is blowing 25+ deer movement is slim to none in the more open areas. You'd think they'd be used to it. But they stay tight to the thicker brush and trees in the heavy wind. If you have a feeder on the downwind edge of some thick stuff, that might be money today.

They definitely still move they just hold tighter to cover and low places. This big drain that snakes around to my west and south is ideal. Its pretty deep and has several little oak mots on it and multiple sand plum thickets. The shelter belt to the south also provides a good wind break hence the 25 head of cows that just rolled up to it.

It’s only about 70 and I am absolutely freezing! This wind is cutting me in half. I can really see the feeder but it just went off. The bulk of the cows are back out on the oasture and away from the hedge row except for a dozen or so. If they’ll just move a little to the west pretty soon life will be good. No deer seen yet.

2 more does in a different part of the draw. Just heard a shot from the neighbor’s place and shot him a txt. He responded that is was them “She shot that 9pt”. He’d sent me pics this morning asking if we’d seen him. I’m unclear if “she” is his wife/ girlfriend/ or daughter. He’s a really nice management type deer though.

I’m absolutely covered up in does and 1 little buck. A handful of cows looks like they’re about to screw it up though.

Great hunt, saw a ton of deer. Maybe the most I’ve seen anywhere that wasn’t green field related. Headed out to grab hunters and back to canp to fry fish.

I called an audible. Got in the gate and all the cows were still in the back part of the pasture that I hunted yesterday. Decided to come sit on field that has some new growth sprigging up. I’ll mostly be watching but if the right one shows I have the right gun. 55 wind blowing like crazy. I’ll update when it brightens up.

He’s a really nice mid 130’s 3 year old 8pt. He’s bumping does around pretty hard but really seems more interested in keeping them off of the corn.

Sorry fellas. My good buddy caught the Rona and has been quarantined at his Oklahoma deer lease snd weve been catching up. Been on the field since about 2:45.

I finally got to meet Shane for lunch today. Hes as much of a class act in person as he is on the screen. One of my all time favorite members. He loaned me a spotting scope and Im putting it to good use. I have ~30 deer in front of me, 1 nice 2 year old 9 and a 3 year old basket 8. Its hot and windy but were out here trying them. I moved Paul this afternoon to a place where I have a really good feeling hes going to get to see a really really nice deer. With any luck itll get inside his comfort range and well be taking pics in a Rye field.

I can see A LOOOOOOT of country and not a lot of deer on their feet. I got excited with the early flurry but there’s definitely been a lull. Shadows are getting long though and a small buck just stepped in the field.

It’s legal shooting light and I have a big framed buck in the field. Need a couple of more minutes to brighten up so I can tell what he is.

I’ve got the light now but I can’t see the buck. He joined a couple of other deer and those passed within 100yds of me when they were leaving the field but I didn’t see the buck. There’s a chance he’s bedded in the rows but it’s not likely. Just heard a shot from Mr. Charlie’s direction. Fingers crossed!
