Went out there about a week and a half ago to drop some corn and other minerals. Had a couple deer blow at me. Found quite a few spots to hang my saddle so hopefully I can get there early enough that nobody else is in one of those trees but all is fair on public units. Good luck to everyone this weekend. Can't wait to hear everyone's stories from the stand.

This should be an interesting season. I probably spent no less than 300 hours in the woods last year scouting preseason. This year is probably closer to 100 hours, but have only been down once in the last 2 months. Hoping nobody has claimed my favorite spots. Always nice to show up and find a stand with no hunter...not that that has ever happened. In all seriousness, I hope everyone has a safe and successful season. Yíall be careful out there.

This will be my first year hunting over there. I'd like to get on the lake a duck hunt a bit. Depending on how many trucks I see I'd love to try and deer hunt public land. Whats it like out there?

Ugh. Haven't even started spots this year. Maybe I will get out there and corn in a couple weeks. Don't wanna try opening weekend and next week is my Bray so I'm sure my family will have me busy that weekend since I work out of town during the week.

Eh, I didnít put a drop of corn out last year and skipped opening day and did okay. Part of it was because I just couldnít bring myself to go back to where my dog got killed.

In any case, not being so gung ho in October paid dividends. Mainly because it lets other folks burn out who eventually will, and besides unless you have a buck on a bed to feed pattern, early season is such a crap shoot. Because no matter how much corn you put out, it will never be a primary food source for them, and itís not magical. Nothing is for sure, but one thing that I have noticed in other Corp properties where I run cameras all season long is that bucks show up on camera magically plus or minus a few days to the week from the year prior. The only thing you can really base that off of is vegetation changes roughly the same time every year.

Itís a marathon, not a sprint, and all it takes is one!

Sorry guys

I got my little boat out last week and it started right up, was about to head out to scout and set up a couple spots, figured it check lower unit oil and it was bone dry, seals are bad. They come in today so I'll try to get out around 1pm one weekday next week to get it done.

Hopefully I don't mess anyone up. Yes I'm that guy this yr. Haven't had time to do it earlier due to training at work, kid stuff and Colorado trip

2018-2019 Archery season opener report:


Grandbury, wich is near full conservation level, has been releasing a lot of water in the last 24 hours. The W lake has come up another 6". And now stands at 4.4 feet low.


A lake is still 1.16 feet low.




Edit: I hope the W lake continues to fill through October!

Today is my one day off this week. So do-n domestic chores right now. Wasn't expecting this rain shower here this morning. Gonna try to get my mat grass attached to my boat blind at some point today. Already got the die cut backer material on. Then take the blind off and store it. I'll have everything ready for November duck season then.


I'lll also have 4 days off next weekend. But have to spend part of that time take-n care of my dad who will have his 3rd surgery since Sept 2017. This one is for health maintenance. But I might get some free time to sneak out on the water, I hope.

My husband and I were the only ones on our unit this morning. We settled into our trees before sunrise and didn't see a single deer throughout our morning sit. I'll have to go back for an afternoon sit quite soon.
