Default Banner day yesterday!

I started my opening weekend at the farm with high hopes. I had some good deer on camera and was feeding protein and corn generously. I brought my wife and both kids for this trip.

Opening morning I saw a few deer but nothing worth shooting. That evening I sat in a new stand. Like always I practiced drawing and then let down slowly. To my surprise, my string managed to slip off the cam. Great. I was now without a bow. I didnít hunt Saturday evening or Sunday morning.

I went to a great bow shop in Lawton,OK Sunday afternoon and they got me back in business. Sunday evening hunt was met with warm temps and small bucks.

Then Monday happened! Luck has turned around. I was able to connect with a pretty, slick, tall tined 8 point that was on the hit list. I got him broken down and on ice. It felt good to get a bow kill after not shooting one last year.

For the evening I decided to sit in the Krivoman blind and just enjoy the 91 deg temps! You never know what might show up. My county is a 2 buck no restriction limit, so I still had another buck tag. Deer slowly started trickling in around 6:30. Small bucks and a few does. About 15 minutes before last shooting light, a pretty 9 pt with a kicker off his G2 came in. From trail cam I know this deer usually runs with a big bodied, heavy 10 point. So, I just wait to see if he shows. From the corner of the window I see him. HUGE bodied deer! Itís him. I know Iím about to tag out! I draw and settle my pin. Let her fly and hear the unmistakable sound of lungs getting popped. He ran hard for 40 yards and I watched him fall!

What a trip! I canít tell you how fortunate Iíve been to have my familyís farm to come hunt all these years. My Aunt and Uncle have been so good to me and my family. Truly, the salt of the earth kind of folks.

Enough writing. Hereís some pics.

8 pt- 127Ē
10 pt- 148 2/8

Awesome! Can't beat that! Where are you hunting? We went out to Medicine Park this spring and explored for a few days. Pretty area for sure! There are public land Elk draws out there in the Wichita mountains right?

I think the picture on the porch is my favorite. Enjoy those times. The wisdom is gone when they are. I miss all of my grandparents and my dad.

Congrats!

Awesome story and pictures. But I absolutely love the pictures with your aunt, uncle and children. Wonderful memories for all. I pray I can give my children and future grandchildren the opportunity to share those exact experiences and memories.
