And guess who came up the creek? Blew at me from my 6 o’clock at about 30 yards. Smh, weather is changing and I’ll be in a tree tomorrow morning. Time to cook some venison and wild hog, watch some Game of Thrones and go to bed early for tomorrow.

Up and at em this morning, heading out now. Wind switched to the NW, perfect for my #1 stand. Pressure rose over 30 for first time in several days, maybe even a week, itís at 30.2 and will keep rising over the next 4 days. Rising pressure + rising testosterone may equal a big buck on the ground.

Good luck. I’m heading to my lease in Atoka Co this afternoon. I’ll be there till Saturday morning, hoping this weather will get them moving some. I had a small buck grunting and lightly pushing does last week but I haven’t seen anything else that resembles the rut yet either

Well, I was typing an update and all the sudden, I hear a low and long guttural sound from about 50 yards away at my 10 oíclock. I pull my binoculars up and bam, itís a huge 9 point and our #3 hit list buck. Instant adrenaline dump. Theyíre in a spot where I canít see all the way through the trees. I say ďtheyĒ because heís walking behind a hot doe. Sheís moving left to right about 55 yards out and downhill, which means she probably isnít going to come back my way once she passes. So I grunt at him while passes through a shooting window at 50 yards to see if heíll come closer in an effort to defend her from the buck Iím pretending to be. He ignores me and I lose him for a minute. Iíve got my crossbow in hand but Iím trying to locate him in the brush. Right when I see him again, heís about to pass that window but I didnít see it until it was too late. I should have grunted him to a stop in the window and then found him in the scope. Lesson learned.....I had that spot pre-ranged. There was another immature 8 point following both of them. I got the encounter on video but itís not a zoom video and all you can make out is itís a deer passing through. Hereís 2 pics of the buck.

Lots of work in the middle of the day. Moved a stand by myself to about 50 yards NE of the one I’ve been sitting in (no small feat in that this stand was 400 yards from here , used the Viking for 300 yards of that journey). MUCH better view and more of the funnel point of where they’re all passing through. Did a Golden Estrous scent drag down the trail in front of me and have much more shooting lanes. If I’d have been siring here this morning, we would be looking at LDP’s but alas......it’ll do for now and I’ll trim some stuff tomorrow but we are good to go here for the next 3 days, all are supposed to be a north wind. I’ve been settled in for about an hour now.

8 point came in at last light but he was 2.5, I let him go, looking for a mature buck. More grilling and then some Tito’s Vodka.

Not quite got a late start, just got settled in. Saw a total of 5 bucks yesterday, although that smaller 8 I saw at the end of the day could have been the same one who was trailing the doe with the big 9 yesterday. Hoping today is the day.

When you kill that big 9, wrap his rack in at least 17 layers of bubble wrap for the drive back down that pos "highway". That thing hurts my kidneys...
