I sat this morning. Nowhere near a sauna due to the monsoon that lasted about 3 hours.

My wife and daughter took my place in the blind for the evening hunt. No word for the past few hours though they did see a bobcat early on. Couldnít get a shot at it because the window is fully meshed, did send a crappy picture and yeah it looks like a bobcat alright.

Feeder was due to go off a little bit ago, good chance they can pop a couple of hogs at least.

It's hot. In the old gas tank blind and this fiberglass gets hot. Have a Call 7 I've seen just trying to decide if it's worth taking or not.

How did I ever sit without a thermacell Iíll never know. I hear that beautiful breeze outside but the brick house blind is sealed pretty tight. I wonder if Iíll have visions so far I got the smoke and the sweat of a sweat lodge

I think walking a mile to get in is what makes me so hot. If I were in my tree Iíd be fine but would probably get busted with this wind

It’s not too bad at all in my tripod right now with a little breeze blowing. Been here since 4:00, only since three does out in the field. Cam shows a bachelor group coming in pretty steady right at dusk, we’ll see!!

Way too many dang acorns on the ground out here. The live oaks are dropping huge acorns. It will be a month before the feeders pick up again I bet.

I lost a pint of blood to the skeeters and stirred three does on a sweaty stalk. Ambush mojado en la manana.

Mosquitoes are no issue in this Maverick blind. But it's warm in here even this morning.

I can deal with the bugs a lot easier than I can deal with hunting in an oven. When it is hot, I have to hunt in a tripod.

I tried to talk myself out of it. I even thought I could just sit at camp. In the end I'm glad I didn't because I did something I've wanted to do for years.

That would be me yesterday. I called it a "practice hunt." I sweat all the way there (even in Ohio), banged and clanked around in my climber and fell asleep every 5 min. my thermacell was a great help!
