    July 3rd, the results come out for the Oklahoma controlled hunts. I put in for the McAlester army ammunition plant and Sequoyah national wildlife refuge, All bow hunts. I’m already pumped for this years season. I’ve got cameras out, been feeding and installing some mineral stations. I’m hoping this will help the herd out.

    Who else is getting ready?

    I have been doing what I can! Minerals are out and cameras are hung I put a lot of boot leather on the ground this spring so hoping it pays off! After 8 years of hunting the same property, I finally feel confident that I understand what type of property it is when it comes to deer hunting and how to utilize my time and effort in the direction of shooting a good buck! at least that's how I feel Ill either confirm or not confirm that this fall!

    Well, I didn’t get selected for the controlled hunts, again lol. Oh well, I’ll just invest that much more of my time in locating and patterning this guy hopefully! D431988E-0427-42BD-A360-A5DA111AA2F1.jpeg I’m heading this weekend to check cameras and freshen of my mineral sites. Hoping to see some growing antlers on camera.

    Good luck to your son, there are some big deer in Cookson! I feel you bud. It almost seems like they hand pick their friends lol. I don’t know anyone personally that drew a tag this year. I’ll try again next year though. I’ve got my vacation planned for November 4th to go to James Collins to hunt a little.

    Nice buck! We do have some nice deer and I love late season between the week before Christmas through the first week of January in Oklahoma. You'll be surprised!
