I actually shot him 3 years ago when he was 5.5 years old and a Booner. I figured I picked the wrong stand that evening and threw a big dip in pretty much mailing in the hunt. I grabbed my spit bottle and almost dropped it when I happened to look down and he was standing 10 yards from my tree at 4 in the afternoon. Didnít adjust for the close range and steep angle and hit him high in no mans land with an arrow. Saw him a few times on camera a few weeks after that and he pretty much vanished from there. I think he just avoided my cameras from that year on. Fast forward to last day of gun season last year. I snuck into the woods to a stand I hadnít hunted but one time all year. I heard some tickling of antlers and thought someone was hunting my place a 100 yards away. About 10-15 minutes later a little 6 point walks in front of me and passes behind me. Once behind me he gets a little jumpy and heads towards the crop field but I think nothing of his jumpiness. A few minutes later I heard a little noise behind me but assumed it was just another squirrel. Another 10 minutes go by and it is getting close to dark. I happen to look behind me and heís at my 5 oíclock at 17 yards. Grabbed my shotgun and struggled to get steady cranked so far around in the stand but was able to get the shot off. I followed his blood trail about 100 yards until he jumped a fence. At this point I backed out until morning. I found him the next morning about another 100 yards behind my neighbors pond. Scored right at 160 and figure him to be 8.5 years old. He was a fighter and explained why all the bucks over 2.5 years on the farm had broken main beams the last couple years. Was just a big surprise because I had no trail camera pictures of him the last few years. Before that he was always on the camera.

Starting to look like a barn. They got pretty far along figuring 2 1/2 days were lost to rain. So far the only DIY has been general contracting. Wonít be long before I can actually put some sweat into it.

We were going to stone the entire area under the roof and have landing pads. Talked to the wife last night and decided to just concrete it all to keep everything clean.

Thanks. Not really moving in as this will only be a man cave / guest house. We are hoping to start designing the house next month so in the end yes it will be a pretty long build.

Not much to update. Got walls all painted for electrician to start this week. OH doors scheduled for tomorrow. Gutters were due last week so not sure what happened there. Farmer harvested corn over the weekend. Got to ride along in the combine to do a little scouting.
