Instead of multiple threads every week I will just do one solid season thread. Any hunt I do will be here. I live here so lots of hunts will happen from compound, traditional and rifle.

Tonight is sit #8 for the season after a Big possibly P&Y 7pt! Fingers crossed. I've had him at 10 yards and 75 yards already in the last 2 days. See what happens this evening.

I'll post pics as much as I can. Tight and quiet in here so phone use is limited.

Here we go! Good luck to everyone this season.

I was seriously wondering what the green stuff was... seemed a little on the small side to be a food plot!... wondered if it was some sort of bagged deer crack/candy/whathaveyou.

I'll post LDPs of him. Been watching him for 3 yrs. I believe he is 6 but I do know he is at least 5 yr old. Heavy mass, long main beams and great eye guards and tine length. Probably weigh around 190-200.

He has always been an 8-9pt. He broke his split G2 off early August which made him a 7pt. Nothing fancy but we have History with one another and I am gaining on him! He loves my place but come rut he is off to the neighbors and all over. Hopefully capitalize before then.

Not sure where that deer went. Squirrels here. All I saw was the butt end moving southeast which is good.

I don't think so. This spot is tight. No phones at prime time! My guess is the big buck came in and skirted him. Again!

Goodness another great evening. I was surrounded. You know your doing good when you have 7 deer come in from all directions and not one spook. It was like a playground in there. I couldn't move at all until dark. I did see 1 big bodied deer but 2-3 minutes later a 3 yr old 10 pt came from that spot. I'm happy and think it's just a matter of time. Giving it a break until Saturday. I will re corn tomorrow and check cam. If I evening hunt any the rest of the week it will be up front 1500 yds at another spot with trad gear.


Got a text from my buddy across the road he shot his buck. He is a member here. Probably a 150 class 8pt! I'll be heading there to track shortly.

Yikes, always sucks knowing you may lose a deer, but a potential 150 8pt would give me fits.

Good luck, hope to see a found deer.

No luck! Arrow doesn't look good either. Did jump a deer 400 yds or so from shot and we backed out. Rough night for him ahead.

Back to reality I guess you could say today. I'll get some more hunts at my place later this week.
