    I don't know if you guys saw my post in the "what you bought today" thread but I lucked into a stealth cam gxw (wireless) for the price of a g42. Wal Mart had it locked on the wrong hook. Anyway I got it connected today and played with it and I think it's going to be a super valuable Intel tool for a section of property that is hard to access without bumping deer. Friday I'll get it hung

    3 new sets hung this past weekend. Trail cameras are up and running. Clothes are getting washed tonight.

    So far I've been seeing a lot of deer on the properties that I hunt. Only 2 mature bucks on camera thus far, but I'm excited nonetheless!

    Headed out in the AM to check cams for last time, hang another stand and set a groundblind. The guy I hunt with just ordered 3 new XOP silver stands and sticks. Only one of them came in the mail so far. So we will still have 2 more to hang and 2 more groundblind. One step closer. ready to get it done and let the woods settle down. Sheeesh this stuff is hard work!

    Took a cruise around Gunnison, CO last night and spotted this buck on the edge of a hay field. I'll tell you what, if I had the money, I'd move here in a heart beat. Headed to our camp today, won't have a signal until I bring my big bull back into town good luck to the guys starting their season!

    I've been checking cameras every week or so and only have one buck showing up. Fortunately there are plenty of does so I expect the rut to be a lot more productive. I plan on getting some stands hung this weekend and doing some more shooting. Season starts September 24th for me. Happy Labor Day weekend everyone!
