Congrats on the deer Wade! I'll be waiting on the LDPs. And using my pixel "down-sizer" so I can see the images in normal size.

Sorry for the long delay in getting the LDP's but we just finished getting the pics done and celebrating...I'll expand on the story a little more later, but it did not last more than 3 minutes from the time I stepped foot on the platform! Awesome feeling to get it done early on this Nebraska brute!!!

I had just climbed up in the stand and put my jackets back on for the evening sit. My binocs were laying across a limb right front of me and I snapped a picture of my surroundings in the new platform stand we built back in July. I had typed up the first text and tried to upload the pics of my surroundings...

As soon as I put my binoculars back on, I could hear the faint sound of a deer running through the leaves from the ridge in front of me. I looked down the road and I could see a wide rack working his way through the trees and heading in my direction. Immediately I could see it was a mature shooter and recognized him by the game cam pic we had a week ago at this same stand



I drew back when he crossed behind a limb on the tree I was in and he stepped into my shooting lane to the right at just under 20 yards...I settled my 20 yard pin and tripped the trigger....THWACK!!!!

Immediately I could see the blood spraying across the leaves as he exited back down toward the creek bottom to the northwest. He stumbled three times and went down just behind a rise near a downed tree 60 yards from where I shot him.

I looked down and the text with the pics of my surroundings had not even gone out yet! So I climbed down to take a look and he was impressive to say the least!





Dan showed up to help me load him so we could take some quick pics in the field then haul him back to camp where we could set up proper LDP’s!







Dan and I struggled mightily to get the brute loaded up into the bed of the Honda, but eventually we got it done!



I can’t tell you how thankful I am to be able to share camp with this group of friends from the Midwest and Texas!

Now, we broke the ice on the meat pole and now it’s time for the other boys to lay down some more bone starting tomorrow morning. Dan and I saw another buck about the same size as the buck I shot out in the bean field as we were taking the rangers out to pick up the hunters in the field at dusk! Formulating a game plan to put somebody on that brute tomorrow!

All set at Eagles Nest...Dan and I saw 5 does out in the bean field as we drove in and I bumped another deer in the sand flat as I eased my way back to this stand

Beautiful morning with almost no wind at all

ó Oak Hallow

Still no deer. Couldnít ask for better weather though, cool and almost no wind. Sounds like the duck hunters are doing well maybe the shooting will push some deer my way.

Unfortunately, the big buck stayed back up on the ridge behind Jack while a young buck moved out into the food plot. The young buck eventually got down wind of Jack and busted him so the big buck moved on back into the timber over the ridge

As Wade mentioned earlier I got busted by a young buck on top of the hill in the photo below. If you look close enough you can see the tree stand in the center of the hill. The big buck was on the tip top of the ridge line playing it safe in the cover of the thickets. The SE corner of the property has some big deer in it. Heavily wooded area but should yield results eventually. Starting to rain so most of us pulled back to camp for some of Timís moms soup!

That Wade is sneaky. He somehow got two post in before my last.


Don't know why his didn't show up when I was posting. Cyber glitch I guess.

Back at it in Eagles Nest after a long walk to/from/then back to the stand...accidentally dropped my vest (with my phone in it) on the ground from the cinch straps on my backpack. It had my phone in it so I slowly made my way back to the ranger to get it, then had to skirt around Dan at the creek crossing my to get back to my stand
