I went down on the fourth and had to mow and cut brush after I got out of the blind. It was hot and slow so we wanted it right for later in the season. I typically go down Around the 14th of September for opening of dove and do my final trimming and mowing for the season. We had like 15 inches of rain that weekend so we just hung around the camp so no work got done because it was too wet.

I was afraid with all the rain deer wouldn't be hitting feeders.

This year has been insane. I can't go into our pasture without tripping over deer. We're not even close to the good times yet.

Oh man what a buck!! That sucker's got some serious tines and beams!! I'm here at my place south of Mirando City and I saw a lot of deer today... The big boys ain't playin' yet, but at least some of the grass is dead... Still headlight high on my truck, and tall as my feeder pens in some places... It's better'n it was... Sure hope I can get things squared away enough to just finally hunt between Christmas and New Year... Gettin' a new place set up is Sooooo Slooooow!!! Last time I had to do all this, I was 35 years younger!! ... still fun tho!

Buddy of mine shot this 154 Eight last weekend at my place. He used a mouth draw on the bow due to him tearing his right bicep.
Anybody else ever try this ? I have a short video of him drawing the bow but dont know how to upload video. Quite an accomplishment.

Looks like I missed the rut. I was here Thanksgiving weekend and came back Friday to hunt. Some bucks are still working scrapes but they are all scarred up and some have broken beams.




Had this guy in front of me checking him out through Bonos when this guy popped out to my right.

Lots of bucks broken on my lease, some just points and others main beams. One of our target 5+ year old 8 points broke off both his main beams about 4 inches from the base.

Awesome nilgai.

It's always a lame day dream but even tonight I caught myself thinking about the what ifs if a big animal other than a deer stepped out the brush

Bucks running good in Duval county. Our guys got a 9, 10, and 11 pt in the last 2 hunts. My turn to get a 12 to keep the sequence going. Lol
In the 5 years weve been on this lease, weve only taken culls and some does to get the ratio close to where we want it. Get rid of the trash to get good symmetrical bucks.
