    While it was great to be in the stand, I can't believe I only saw 1 spike and my Buddy saw nothing.
    At least I got out. Best of luck y'all.

    I'm sure this is a bad idea and a waste of gas, but I'm headed to my lease

    After watching Rocky for over 4 hours the doe got up and moved north. He never gave me a shot and I am hoping they went to the pond and stay close the rest of the afternoon. It is gun season here and even though I am confident in my slug gun at that distance I did not like the hole I had to shoot through at that distance.

    Nestled in after eating Angus rib eye and homemade apple pie.

    Nestled into a chair watching football with my Dad, brother, and nephew.....

    For the next 5 hours, this beats bow hunting...Dad is doing awesome! He has a skip in his step and I have not seen him look this good in a long time :)

    I'll write it up on our team thread.

    Right now I'm about 18 minutes from football and more importantly beer. Story only a person accused of being drunk could tell.

    It's so off the wall.....can't help but laugh. Or cry, I don't know. I'm tired.

    Bqck at it in the morning for a 3 hour sit, need to help uncle pour concrete at 9:30. Tuesday likely last hunt until at least the weekend.

    Positive went out the window last week, but I'm here. I get this little twinge of hope every time I come out at least, I guess if I didn't, I probably wouldn't do it....
