Couldn't handle going up a tree today so we're using the predator platform as a ground seat. One of these days I'll get over that slip. At least I'm trying again.

Holy cow what a great few days. These are the better ones that got passes. Cant shoot a great one if you shoot the good ones. Soak up this rut fellas, it's a good one.

Was able to tag a pretty 8pt in NE Tennessee this evening

He came in and got a pass....

Then I seen he was carrying right front leg off the ground. Hate to see them hurt like that!

NE Tennessee, and happy to have him.
Really glad to take him out of his pain.

There are always poor years bud. I'm just soaking up a full 5 days of some of the best hunting in my home state that I've ever had.

Congrats Backstraps! And nice passes Muddy. :shock:


Dad and I hunted the CRP tonight. He got the luxurious box blind this time and I hung his River’s Edge stand with some screw in steps in a new spot. Made me appreciate the LW and sticks! :?

The neighbor gave me permission to hunt last week. There’s next to nothing there for habitat as it’s 98% ag, but there’s a couple trees near the standing corn on the property line, so that’s where I hung it.

I ended up seeing 3 bucks and 3 does. Passed a yearling buck at 15 yards and another yearling at 90. 3rd buck was trailing a doe through the CRP and would have been tough shooting. They were 150+.

That’s a sweet little set up and I could see a TON of ground. Good chance we kill there some day, just hope the landowner doesn’t start hunting it himself again.

Back to work for the week!

Sat all day. Morning movement was great till 10. The afternoon was uneventful. Deer came in with about 10 minutes of shooting light left.
It was really windy and that’s supposed to continue tomorrow .
I might take the day off and get done things done @ the house so the wife is a little happier.
I was reminded today when I got home by her that there wasn’t a buck in the bed of the truck. She got the bird and a “Love you too dear”.
