We are settled in.
It’s breaking daylight and the woods are waking up.

We are in a set up in a ground blind tucked back in some cedars on a fence row Over looking a small pasture.

Wish us luck.

We are headed to the truck.
Leaving Kansas empty handed but made some awesome memories.
My buddy Brian told Talen last night that he was welcome to come back in December with his Muzzloader and hunt the rifle season.
I cant say enough good things about that guy. What started out as just hunting with a small outfitter 6 years ago, has grown into an awesome friendship. He has busted his butt 4 days straight with me, helping get my sets hung and ready on my lease. Hes taken Talen under his wing and has been an awesome mentor for him as a Kansas Outdoors man.

Well be back live in Fort McKavett October 16th. Talen & I will both be bow hunting along with Justin Spies & boyles77. Should be an awesome hunt. Targets will be Whitetail & Axis.

Thanks for all the positive encouragement and support!

Some more pics from our week...

Bringing it back up!!!

Truck is packed. Bows are dialed in. And weather is getting good.

Me & Talen are leaving the house @ 5:30 AM. Making a short stop to pick up Justin Spies and boyles77. Then it’s a hammer down. 6.5 hr drive to Ft McKavett.

Whitetail & Axis will be the main targets.

Should be a fun, target rich weekend!!!! I’ll keep it live as possible.
Stay tuned!

Nice. Hunt in the morning, breakfast when you get back, take a nap with a fishing string tied to your toe, hunt the afternoons.

Between driving most of the day, visiting and catching up with everyone, I haven’t had much of a chance to detail the hunt.
Me & Talen got an invite a few months back to hunt a ranch in Ft McKavett with Justin Spies that he had hunted last year.

I’m not one to turn down a perfectly good invite to hunt, so here we are. We met boyles77 at Justin’s house this morning. Drove 6.5 hrs to the ranch. Met with Nathan and went over trail cam pics and headed out to the stands.

We’ve got a 11 MPH East wind and 72 degrees of sunshine.
Turkeys are cutting up to our North

T has his heart set on a nice 10 point on camera or the first shooter axis that gives us a shot.

Congrats to him!!!

Great way to kickoff our hunt.

Been settled in for a while.
No deer for us yet, but Justin is covered up with Does & yearlings. Ben is in a stand with zero cell service.
Feeder just went off.

It’s 59 degrees and it feels great!
Straight South wind is perfect for this set.
