Default Back Up Top For The Rest LIVE!!!

Got me a couple of much needed days of R&R and time with the kiddos. Wednesday was Thanksgiving at my Mom’s and yesterday was at the in-law’s. I rolled out at 4:30 this morning and I’m on a pit stop in Decatur. I’ve got my buddy Mike taking a break from his taxidermy work and headed up as we speak, my nephew and BIL are also in route to try and get Parker’s first deer, William, his son Hunter, and his dad Wild Bill rolled in last night. I’ve only been gone 2 days and it feels like I’m a month behind on what’s going on. They should still be after the does pretty good but starting to work into lock down. I missed that phase last year so it’ll be a bit of a learning curve for me.

Should be rolling through The Rock around 1pm and as soon as everyone else gets there we’ll get them headed to their stands. I’m getting a little blood thirsty so be prepared for me to click the safety off on something!

Here’s a few of the highlights so far for those who missed the previous thread.

In the gate. All my beer is at camp so I had to borrow a water from my “brother” in law. If it wasn’t for the 4 kids of his I’d question his sexuality.

The evening went pretty dang quick and ended with plenty of BS... Had a very “interesting”
group of guys doing donuts 100yds from one of my hunters on a side by side. They then started harassing the neighboring lease. I was told the SO’s were called. Then I had a **** head 6pt KO the passenger side rear quarter panel of my truck. Whatever I guess...

Parker (my 10 year old nephew) killed his first deer ever, Hunter shot a really nice 7+ year old, and Wild Bill popped a doe. Waiting on pics.

One of my big shooters is here up on the ridge to the north. I need him to close the gap about 200 more yards.

The north ridge is still covered in deer but the bucks are winning hide and seek so far. I wish I’d brought my horns this morning.

My nephew Parker and I are after a buck. Gonna be real with y’all, I probably won’t update a lot this evening as he’s trying to kill his first buck. We have a stud in the field right now but 250 is way out of his comfort zone. Hang tight, I bet he shoots.

23 deer seen so far and 2 shooters. There’s a long 200yd wide strip of private between us and where they all were. Looks like all the deer bedded in that strip. Feeder spins at 4:30 and I bet things get real interesting!


For now, he gone lol. Him, Hunter, and Aden chased birds with a bb gun and sling shot, chopped dead wood, and did exactly everything that boys are supposed to do at deer camp! My man is all tuckered out lol.
