Tito’s does back straps just came off the pit. Camp is popping, Tito has killed his deer 300 times and we can’t wait to hear it 301 times! Life is better at camp.

We’re in the blind. It’s warmed up a bit and kind of even trying to rain just a little bit. I’m back in the Snow Cone Stand again, Tito slept in, Burr is about a 1/2 mile from me back to the east, and William/ Hunter and headed back to where they hunted yesterday evening. It’s mine and Burr’s last morning and we both have to head back. Will and Hunter are going to stay and hunt through tomorrow morning.

Man what a great night at camp! I don’t think any of us got to bed before 1am. If Tito shot that deer once he shot him 10,000 times!

Keep your fingers crossed that the cows stay off of me this morning and one of these big ol dumb ones rolls in here. I’ll update when day breaks.

God dang cows are here! It’s such a kick in the nuts to put as much work in as we have and then have cows camp out at your stand! That’s part of it though... This is the only pasture we have that has cows and it’s my favorite to one to hunt. The deer here absolutely hate them too. There won’t be a buck within a quarter mile of where they are.

That sucks. Especially your last hunt.

My experience hunting a place with cows in 1 pasture and not the others is about like yours. The deer wont even come in. The other pastures will be covered up with deer and the cow pasture will have 1 or 2.

Cows finally moved on and the feeder just went off. Temps went from warm and muggy to down right cold almost instantly. North wind is full throttle and is exactly the kind of weather to get ol big on his feet.

I bought one last year just for that. Made some pretty impressive shots with it too. That sucker is hanging in my tackle room with a Crown Royal bag full of steel ball bearings doing me absolutely no good.

It’s dead here but can happen really fast. Will and Hunter have a couple of does on them and Burr has yearling bucks and does. I DID NOT wear enough clothes this morning!

I’m calling it boys. I didn’t wear enough clothes and I’m covered up with cows. We’re gonna go top off feeders, pack up camp, and hit the road. Will and Hunter are staying another night but I’ve got to go to work tomorrow. I’ll post pics of Hunter’s deer when I get back to camp.

Lots of respect for the young man and his parents. It will take all of them to make this young man a success. I have a good friend I met in college with pretty bad CP. His parents told him to figure out how to do things, and he did. He's 50+ and a licensed (Dr) counselor working on his second marriage. There's nothing he can't do, because he has the mentality to find a way. Sounds like Dakota is going to be that kind of man. Congrats on a great buck, and a drive that will carry that young man far!

I bailed and went to pick Burr up on the side by side. I climbed up in the blind with him because he had a heater and I didn’t have enough clothes. I’d thrown the ar in there just for good measures. I was warming up and we were talking about how the hunt pretty much sucked and I noticed the coyotes coming back to the dead cow. Quick range of 253yds, a blind window slamming shut on my noggin, and Burr holding the window open for my I managed to blow the gizzards out of a coyote. I just got back to camp and got a pull of liquid heater. As soon as I warm up we’ll start packing up camp. Will and Hunter will be here soon with his deers.

They had to trick me into leaving but we’re out the gate. Hunter’s doe pics are on his daddy’s phone but I snapped this one while they were hanging.


Another epic weekend in the books. I’m blessed beyond words to have the friends that I do and I love their kids just like they’re mine. There was nothing but belly laughing and story telling taking place around the fire. The boys are good boys and will grow up to be good men. I was going to stay home next weekend and hunt around the house but Will is coming back up with his daughter so I think I’ll do the same thing. Thank y’all for tagging along and I hope y’all enjoyed it just half as much as I did telling it. We’ll see y’all on the other end.

Angelina Co has been breached. I should be unloaded from Burr’s and back at la casa in 30-45. We’ll do it again next weekend.
