    Just getting a chance to post an update from Sunday.
    I took my 5 1/2yr old daughter with me & setup in a ground blind. She passed the time on the iPad & about 7:30 we had 2 doe walking straight to us. They got to 25yds behind some trees & people staying at the cabin came out slamming the house & car doors. Even though it was 80yds through the woods the doe didn't like & turned & walked away from us.
    7:45 I see someone walking slowly through the woods carrying a 22 rifle. I whistle hoping they would see the ground blind & walk away from us, no luck. I unzip the door & stand up whistling & waving hoping they don't shoot in our direction, he finally sees me but rather than walk away he comes & wants to talk to us, GREAT!! He was the nephew of the property owner.
    He was a very loud talker! After all the commotion I told him we were going to walk around & leave. My daughter wanted to stay in the blind longer but I told her with all the loud talking & moving around we wouldn't see anything else. So I grab my bow & gear & we start walking the trail to the truck, I look back up the trail from where the doe had walked & there stands a decent 8pt walking the path that would've given me a 25yd shot. I tried to sneak down the trail for a 30yd shot but he saw me & ran off.

    My daughter looked at me & said "I told you we should have stayed in the tent" I agreed! Haha! It was a great morning & a lot of fun for her. I'm taking my 8yr old daughter this weekend. Should be a good time to be out the scrapes are getting hit hard.

    Well baring any unforeseen problems at work today, (fingers crossed) I'll be leaving for IL. around 11 this morning. Hopefully I'll have good news sometime next week. It's go big or go home for me. Hopefully I'll get a Monster then a doe.
    Good Luck to everyone this weekend and next week!

    Well, I was all set to get up early this morning for an all day sit only to be woken up at 2:00 am by the sound of one of my kids vomiting. Needless to say, I spent the rest of the night/morning taking care of her. That has been the story of my season so far this year.

    Hey all...sorry I haven't been around. I get a little carried away this time of year. Nothing new to report. Been at it hard and have a couple shooters on cam but have not seen in person yet. Hopefully soon, it's that time.

    Yesterday wasn't a good day. We get to the farm & the wind had changed from the forecast & we hd to move the ground blind. I didn't really expect to get a shot on anything where we had to setup. A SSE wind is bad when hunting this farm from a ground blind. My 8yr old had fun & that was the main thing. I did let her rattle once & 5min later had a small 8pt come in to 60yds but once he saw the ground blind he took off.

    I'll be at it Thursday - Saturday this week.
