I got it. Iíll reply later!

Thanks for the kind words. Video will be uploaded soon. Iíll see if I can work on it from here.

Iím back at Killin Tree this evening. I left a trail cam out last week and there were pics of a couple of mature bucks on it. Hopefully theyíre still cruising through regularly. Wind is good for the setup.

Thanks for all the kind words!

I didnít hunt this morning because of work, but Iím set up this afternoon in a Xenek ground blind near Long Mountain. I dropped a stand and fill here last trip and itís been getting activity of some sort. With the drizzle. I decided opted for the comfort of a ground blind!





I rarely hunt here, but there always seem to be deer in the area. Taylor shot his buck last year in this same area from a rifle blind.

https://youtu.be/yok-CpG7ITo

Iím hoping itís a good spot for a ďmeat hunt!Ē

Jnet and I saw a big bodied buck near a blown down rifle blind (Maciís stand) this morning while driving around. She has the smoke pole and is hoping to get a shot at him from the pickup.

I waited for Casey to arrive and then we set out a ground blind near the spot where the camera captured the pics. There is a pic of a second buck that looks pretty good, but itís not a great pic.



The wind will shift today from NW to SE, so weíll have to reset the blind for this evening if I canít make it happen this morning.

Casey is in the Krivoman blind at Hiline.He doesnít have signal with his inferior phone service, so weíll update his action after the hunt.

Sad to hear about the ranch sale. Your live hunts though the years have been something I have looked forward to. I joined this great site in 2001. I have watched your kids grow up your hunting adventures at your ranch and this site grow. Thank you Michael and good lick on sticking that Jack hammer in the sweet spot on that big buck.
