Default Father & Sonís Live Polk County 2021!!!!

Itís about to get good in the Polk County Neches river bottom.
This is my favorite live hunt to post and I couldnít have started it a better way.
I landed in Houston at 1:30 from a scouting trip in Illinois. Called Bryce & Talen and had them load the truck with guns and a bow. Got home about 4:00. Swapped vehicles and headed to the lease.
Dropped both boys off at their stands and just settled in. We were running a tad late but I ainít complaining. Itís been a few years since Iíve had them both in the woods with me at the same time.
We have 2 buck tags left since Talen has already filled one on opening weekend with a nice 10 point.
Bryce has the green light on 2 different shooters at his stand and Talen is hunting for a sure enough Stud 8 point that has been frequenting his stand.
Iím set up in my bog box stand just taking inventory.

To top everything off, my Dad took off this whole week and will be in town tomorrow to hunt with us. I havenít gotten to hunt with him in a couple of years so Iím looking forward to this week.

Stay tuned..

Family of Coons just joined in on the corn buffet.

The Trash Panda population is definitely not in any danger in the river bottom.

5 does, 5 coons so far for me.

I’m running solo this morning.
Talen has school and Bryce is working nights this week so he wanted to sleep late.
Waiting on my Dad to roll in to town.
I figured I’d go ahead and keep it live myself.

It’s breaking day and I’m set up in a box stand on a pipeline that runs North and South.
Got bedding to my East and a shooting lane with a feeder pen to my West.

Talen killed a really nice 8 point here last year on opening morning. And my niece killed a very mature 8 point here this year on opening morning.

We’ll see what happens.

Deer are definitely on their feet.

Doe & yearling just slipped thru the timber between me and the feeder pen.

We had a black squirrel here last year and havenít seen him any this year. Figured he didnít make it thru the freeze.
He showed up this morning. Glad to see him still around.

I’m late updating.
Met my Dad at camp @ 3:00 and got him set up in the same stand I hunted this morning.

He left his phone at camp so I’m not getting any updates.

I guess it’s FORGET day because I totally forgot about Talen’s Show Heifer validation. So I had to rush home and load up his show heifer to be tagged for Fort Worth, San Antonio, & Houston Livestock Show.

I’ll be back at camp around 6:00 and knock out a few loose ends so Dad can stay there tonight.
I’ll update as soon as I get Dad out of the stand.

We are settled in.
Got Dad back in the same box stand he hunted yesterday evening.
I’m in Talen’s stand over looking a big oak flat on the edge of a slough.

55 degrees this morning feels great. Got a SE wind working good for us.

I’ll update after daylight.
