I seen nada in my stand this evening. The only one I seen was on the way back to my truck. Tomorrow morning I will be hunting in the stand my son harvested his 10 point out of. This stand has been our best producer since 99'. We have probably taken over 30 deer out of this stand since 99'. Ten of those being bucks. Good luck and happy hunting to all.

The Assassians score again.
The Assassians score again. Same tree, same time, two days later. This buck really wasn't what I was looking for but he is a really old deer and I felt I neede to get him out of the herd. You should see how gray his face is. I will post up the pics and story later.

I thought my buck hunting was
I thought my buck hunting was over this year. I have another chance to take a buck again. Well, not really me, but my daughter really wants to shoot a buck after she seen my son and I get ours this year. She is not a newbie but she hasn't had that much time in the field. She always shoots with us so I know she can shoot really well. I told her she has definitely picked the best time to want to shoot a buck. We will be going out to our magical spot Saturday morning. She also said she isn't shooting a buck unless it tops Dad and brother. She is very disciplined so I know she can hold out. However, if buck fever kicks in on a 1 1/2 year old I told her it would be ok to shoot it seeing it would be her first buck. She said no way!!!!! I'm shooting the big boy this year. She said she is taking the buck we call Brutus down. I really hope she gets him. I believe Saturday through Monday will be 3 of the best days of the year so her chances should be pretty good. I'm really looking forward to it. I think even more so than my own hunts. Good luck and happy hunting to all.

We will be heading back out in the morning. Should be a great one. We are expecting snow flurries overnight into the morning hours with lows in the mid to upper 20's. I will let you all know how it goes. Good luck and happy hunting to all.

Surprisingly we only seen one
Surprisingly we only seen one little buck this morning. My daughter said no way!!!!! I'm waiting on the big one. Tonight we will be going to our high school's football playoff game. Tomorrow morning we will be back at it. I'm hoping with the time change those big boys that were moving just before light will move at the same time they have been moving and we can nail one. Good luck and happy hunting to all.

Back from Missouri
We have had this lease in Missouri for four years and it is just a blast to hit this place every year. The pre rut is evident and the bucks were starting to cruze for does, but still alot of them were together. I took this buck thursday morning. Fantastic hunt, just like every year. It was more windy than usual, but it didn't seem to matter.

Congrats, Satchmo! Good
Congrats, Satchmo! Good looking buck. It looks like that lease in Missouri produces good bucks for you and your hunting crowd.
The bucks are starting to chase does around here now. But it has been the smaller bucks doing all the chasing. Hopefully the big boys will get moving this week. But I really see the bigger bucks after the peak of the rut. We'll see what happens. Good luck.

This morning's hunt was not
This morning's hunt was not successful but we did have an encounter with Brutus. About five minutes til 8 I heard something coming up the hill from the right. I looked over and saw a doe coming. I told my daughter just in case get ready. Then I seen him. As soon as I seen him I knew it was Brutus. This was the first time I seen him in person and he is one big bodied deer and I'm guessing his rack would break 140". The doe came straight up the hill between 40 and 50 yards to our right. I have seen many deer take this path before. On many occasions they would turn left and cut 15-20 yards in front of our stand. Unfortunately this morning the doe went straight up the hill with brutus following about 50 yards behind her. Then a smaller buck was taking that same route as well. We hung out there in the stand hoping they would maybe come back and pass by but it never happened. Maybe tomorrow morning will be her day. Good luck and happy hunting to all.

It was more of the same this
It was more of the same this morning. Around 7:30 we seen a very large buck about 80 to 100 yards away off in the distance chasing 2 does. Right about 8 oclock we had two does running full speed about 50 yards behind us but nothing was in tow. Then about 20 minutes after 8 I heard something off to my right again coming up the hill. It wasn't Brutus but it was a shooter. He closed to within about 40 yards but she did not have a shot. That was all the action we had this morning. Tomorrow morning we will be going back out to the apple orchard.
