Congrats, Steve!

And killing a deer in the snow 2 years in a row in Texas, for an east Texas fella, is pretty special...next year go for the trifecta

Make that 2 shots fired! I took Cip’s (lease member and good friend) niece to shoot her first deer. The plan was to shoot a doe but when this 3yo management type 8 strolled in it turned into a buck hunt real quick! If you’ve never experienced being with a kid when they kill their first deer you need to add that to your list!

Looking forward to seeing a better pic of Eastexhunt's buck...but I like the tailgate down road photo

She sure did! I told her to put the crosshairs right in his shoulder and give it to him. That sucker never wiggled!

We’re back after it. Cip and his niece are after a big one that has now been seen twice. There’s rumor of a drop tine and a kicker but I haven’t seen it to confirm. I’m parked on a hill reading a Robert Ruark book and looking through a spotting scope. I have 1 little knot head and 3 does in the field. All of my hunters are done for this leg and I’m exhausted. I’ll get up in the morning and do some cleaning around camp and I’ll be headed home to kiss on my babies. Daddy has been gone too long and I miss them terribly bad.

I’ll be headed back up the day after Christmas. I have a big group between Christmas and NY and then doe hunts start on the 4th. I’ll only have 1 other buck hunter during the extended season and it’s a youth hunt the last 3 days with Mr. Cole. Most of the doe hunts will be done off of the main field and I think we’ll be able to gather Cole a really good one with no pressure and good weather. I still have 2 hours left on this live hunt and I do have 1 more tag in my pocket but it’s gonna have to be a mega to make me pull the trigger.

That’s it for this leg boys. No shots fired this evening. I’m going home in the morning and turning my alarm off. I’m gonna take the kiddos fishing and hang at at the casa. I’ll start a new thread when I come back up. Thanks for following along, y’all have a Merry Christmas, and we’ll see you on the next run.
