Thanks!

Man it's so much fun. I don't shoot a whole lot. Actually just started a month ago.

Really looking forward to this evening sit! Can't wait to see what all comes through and wind/weather looking perfect!

Bad timing maybe. Huge cell just built up south of me fixing to hit. It's red and purple. Should have stayed home.

Have you noticed the deer nibbling the tops of the sprouted corn? Ive seen it on a pile or two at my place.

Your accuracy seems to be on point. Hope something good walks out. Good luck.

Storm is looking ugly! Lots of thunder. I may be running back to the truck and move in after it passes.

I should have judged this storm better. Didn't get out in time. Lots if lightning all around me! I climbed out and made it 15-20 yds and burried myself in thick cover.

Ozonics cover the smell of someone crapping their pants from lightning?

Big boar cane in just a few minutes ago and that's it. No buck but feel good about this spot!

Probably give it a break all week and may hunt next wknd. Looks like I have some shopping to do for supplies and get busy on the house build.

Alright been a crazy day. Tornado warning just expired and last little bit of rain is rolling through.

Big buck has gone MIA. I'm focusing on one of the spikes with my longbow until something big shows up on cam. I'll post pic shortly after rain stops and I get settled. Good activity at my front stand location. Hopefully release an arrow this evening!

Checked cams Wednesday and someone decided to show back up! Lots of activity this week. I've got a busy wknd delivering chandeliers, equipment delivery coming to me late tomorrow but Sunday evening just might be free. Bucks are cruising and pushing doe pretty hard. The next 2 wks here really gets good on my place. Hopefully chime in Sunday evening and see if I can't draw some blood!

Youth wknd coming up and my boy is begging me. He will practice shooting next week. If target buck is still alive and presents a shot I will let him take it.

Doe already! She came running in when I was at the base of my tree. Hanging out 59 yds north and I honestly believe she has no clue I'm here.
