Just got word that Justin smoked a doe.

And my little brother has our target 8 point on the ground back at the Polk County River Bottom.

Small 8 is still feeding around us.

Wind has picked up quite a bit and I’m glad for it. It has help calm him down.
Nathan is rounding up Justin & Ben.

We are gonna keep sitting a bit since since we have a live decoy in action.

We called it.
Back at camp and helping Justin with his Doe.

Gonna grab a bite. Go brush in a ground blind and maybe do some fishing.

Considering a mid day set but not 100% set on it yet.

Got some food in our bellyís, courtesy of Droptine3030.
Talen got to help him eliminate some pigs caught in a trap last night.
Set up a ground blind in a spot to hunt this evening.
Now we are wetín some lines.
Ben has biggest fish of the day.
Not a bad day all the way around.
Oh & T is catching what seams to be some much needed rest because even a chain saw didnít wake him up.

Back in the stand!
Itís a chilly 81 degrees with a stiff 14 MPH South wind.
Had does in the corn when we drove up.
T has the green light to shoot any mature Deer or Axis. And Ol Dad has his bow too.
Maybe we can pull off a father/son double this evening.

Stay tuned!

Looking to be a good evening.

Not a lot of action for us so far. A few does and a 6 pnt all out of bow range.

Justin had axis trying to come in on him but would not commit.

Ben ran an arrow thru an 8 point and Nathan has been covered up with deer and turkeys.

I’ll update after dark.

It’s breaking daylight and we have a small 8 eating corn. We are back in the same blind we hunted yesterday morning.
It’s 64 degrees with a 11 MPH South wind.

Well, we had our Big pot belly target 8 pnt come in at 20 yards.
Slightly quartered away. Everything was perfect except for the shot. Video shows that he hit him high and back.
Gonna wait on Nathan to pick us up, review the footage and go from there. T is pretty upset. I told him it happens to the best of us and I’m trying be positive for him.

We have a small 8 back on us and an Axis buck screaming his head off somewhere on the property.
Sun is making its way thru the clouds.
It’s a beautiful morning!!!

T is in little better spirits. But I know it’s eating at him. I’ve been there and it ain’t a good feeling.

We reviewed the footage and gave him several hrs.
The shot was def high & back. Had blood at the point of impact and trailed him 1/4 mile to his bed.
Fresh wet blood where he was bedded and we feel like we bumped him out of his bed.
I was sure the shot wasn’t fatal, but we gave it our best effort to find him.

We called it a day and went back to camp for a bite to eat, packed up and said our
good byes.

Had an awesome time on a really meet ranch.
Got to hunt, fish, and fellowship with some good guys.

I can’t say enough good things about Droptine3030.
Nathan is a stand up guy and we’ll definitely be back to hunt with him again.

Thanks to everyone that has been following along.

We definitely have more hunting to do this year and I’ll fire the thread back up on Tuesday as we’ll be back in the Polk County River Bottom chasing white tails!

Well, we are back at it in the Polk County River Bottom this morning.
Got caught up on some chores this week and figured we would take advantage of this temperature drop.
Talen decided to bow hunt so he is sitting solo on a big acorn flat. His stand faces North with a big slough that runs East & West right behind him. . Hopefully he can run an arrow thru something this morning.

Summer & I are posted up in my big box stand on the South end of the lease. My little brother hunted here yesterday evening and had a great hunt. I’ve never sat here and not seen a deer. It sits right in the edge of a big bedding area with a 300+ yard road that parallels it. Hopefully we can get Summer on a nice buck this morning.

Stay tuned.

Words are alive!!

10 does and 2 small bucks so far.
No deer for Talen yet.

3 does & 2 yearlings eating corn now.

NW wind is perfect for this stand.
It sure feels good this morning.

We are back at it this evening.
Summer & I are back in the same stand we hunted Saturday morning.
Talen has his bow in hand and is sitting back where he hunted Saturday morning as well.
He had a nice shooter there yesterday evening. Hoping he shows back up today.

We have 2 OLD 8 points on the hit list where Summer and I are posted up today.
Maybe 1 will mess up and step out before we run out of shooting light.

We got a 9 MPH East wind and 64 deg.
Letís see what happens.

Just watched an owl dive bomb what Iím assuming is a mouse/rat. Pretty cool to watch.
Looked up while trying to get the camera on it and had 5 does at 350 yards crossing the road.

Headed home.
Had deer all over us at dark.
No shooters in sight this evening.

This was our last hunt until the end of November. I’ll be kicking off an Iowa/Kansas Live Hunt next week.

Thanks to everyone that has followed along so far.
