A few TBH yahoos are going to be hunting some deer this weekend using sticks and strings.... CastandBlast along with TexasTaxi will be chasing these deer. I will leave the updates to them, unless TexasTaxi misses and then I will be all over that one....

These are the target animals. Each of them has their primary deer picked out, but an audible could be called if necessary. Most of these deer have been posted on here at one time or another.

I am currently fighting a bad cough, so I might have to observe these hunts from nearby tower blinds. That just means I will do arrow counts and inspections following each hunt. You just can't trust some folks around big deer.

I heard from a friend of a friend of a friend that those two guys can’t hit the broadside of a barn. You better assist guiding those arrows. LOL. Can not wait for the LDP’s. Enjoy.

This is fake news!
Since we've been living in our barndo, I've set up a 20 yard indoor range (80' building) and I KNOW I can hit the broadside of it. Well, from the inside, at least!

We didn't really talk about the trophy fee on this specimen, but I think he is worth some real $$$$.

Just as a side note, that deer has always been a 6 point. I think he is 9-10 yrs old at this point....

I don't think they've hunted this half of the ranch yet ... other than hogs, which is ironic, on the other half, the hogs are a protected species.

Must be nice! Iím only half way there. Have a meeting in just a sec, a schedule full of patients, and birthday shots at the end for a staff memberís Birthday. THEN, I will be on the road finally.

It would be quicker if Kevin would just meet at my house, but he is making me come pick him up first.

Wish me luck that I can make it through the entire drive with him as copilot.

You know, I never thought about that ... it makes so much sense for me to drive an hour north, wait on your slacking arse, then drive another hour south before we start the trek west.

It's a good thing you're not a real doctor!

Ok. I will start the real live updates.

I am at the ranch and getting things situated. Quite a bit of deer movement and I may or may not have seen some target animals. We will things started early in the am with the first sit.

Hurry up ladies and be safe....
