Default Killin Tree Live Hunt

Iím set up in the Killin Tree in Webb County for what may very well be my last excursion to our Webb County property ever.

Iíll elaborate as I go, but for now Iím just enjoying a beautiful morning sunrise fro my favorite spot on earth.



No feeders are running, no trail cams and this is my first trip here since last January. Iíll be here through Saturday afternoon. Hopefully the bucks will be cruising!

If it's the same spot as your video where you shot that old buck, it seems like a great spot.

Good luck.

The wind is favorable for the setup...unless a deer approaches from downwind! Unfortunately one did and didnít like it!

Dang, never thought boss man would be one to let a guest shoot a deer that was on the shoot/no shoot list, well maybe on the list, well maybe not on the list, that could possibly be taken off but nobody discussed letting the guest shoot it and it result in him getting kicked off the family place...

Good luck

No deer at KT this morning. I set up a trail cam at Hiline last night and there was a pic of a mature buck on it. I may venture over there this evening, although Iím always drawn to KT.
