Default 18 Days to Kill- Live!!! - Illinois, Kansas, Arkansas, South Tx

I just rolled thru this cattle guard slinging the peace sign back at the rig. Itís very possible I may need a permit for this wide smile Iím driving to the airport with. Iíve been at work for 2 weeks impatiently waiting on today.

Iíll be starting the 1st leg of my ď18 days to killĒ tomorrow morning in an acorn tree in Illinois. Iíll hunt there Tuesday- Friday, home for the weekend, then on to Kansas to hunt the 2nd leg Nov 15-22, back to work for 2 weeks, then flying to Jonesboro Arkansas for the 3rd leg to hunt Dec 8-10 and finally the 4th leg will be in South Tx to rap up my year Dec 15-17.

This is the part of my live hunt where Summer will tell you she is the best wife EVER!!! And sheíll get no argument from me.

My season has already started out great with Talen killing his biggest bow buck to date, and my dad following up with his personal best buck with me sitting right beside him in the blind. So Iím definitely feeling the pressure to follow suit.

My flight leaves Midland @ 5:00 and lands in Indianapolis, after a layover in a Houston, @ 10:30. Iíll be at camp tonight around 12:30 tonight and in the stand before daylight.

I should have service all week and Iíll definitely keep it live as possible with plenty of pics.

Made it thru security without a full body cavity search so we are off to a good start.

Immediately purchased an anti-mask kit and waiting to board first flight to Houston.

Pulled in to the farm to see corn still standing in the fields. Not exactly what I wanted to see but it is what it is.
Iím headed in. Lots of deer moving this morning while driving over.
Iíll update at daylight.

Woods are waking up.
I snuck in early and glad I did. It was Super still this morning so I took my time getting to the stand as quiet as I could. I donít think I bumped anything on the way in.
Itís 47 degrees and the sun is just about to peak over the tree tops.
Iím sitting on the SE corner of a corn field over looking a big draw to my South. I have a gas line running East & West between me and the corn field where 4 different trails intercept.

Well my legs are numb and my back is killing me.
Had this doe and yearling under me for the last 30 min. Which I normally would complain about, except I could see deer running/chasing down in the draw but I couldnít move to look thru my binos.
Not a bad hunt so far, for the first morning.
