    Alright guys I lied, I'm actually out hunting again. Took a long drive to my new property. First ever sit here. Beans are destroyed.

    I went out today, with the 5 year old, to set up blinds and check trail cams. Better late than never!

    This dude only showed up once, but he'll be back for the rut...

    Very close tonight. Had a lone doe coming in at the last 10 minutes of light. She got to 40 yards and I ran out of light. Just 20 more yards and I'd be in the money!

    I got a great feeling guys! Will be out in about 1 1/2 hours! Got that weird feeling of anticipation and confidence is high.

    Same! I shot my bow Sunday just a couple times to see how my shoulder felt. Had no issues but only shot 6 arrows. Didn't want to push it yet. Might shoot a little this evening if I get the chance. I have been watching hunting videos nonstop it seems like. Seems like season is never gonna get here! lol

    Ordered a new release. B3 Nemesis. Currently shooting a truball assassin, wanted to go to a handheld release but i just see myself letting go of the release and sending it into the riser or rest of the bow. Lol. Any of you guys shoot a thumb or a handheld release?

    Well it was a big let down. Didn't see a single deer. Now plan for the next hunt.

    Holt those days happen to us all. It'll get better next time.

    Opener here might be a little slow. Bumper acorn crop and deer are really hitting them. Buck pictures are really down at food plots and corn fields.
    Neighbor told me about huge buck crossing road by my house. Either I'm not getting pictures of him or his idea of a big buck is different than mine. Hoping I'm just not getting pictures of him lol.

    Good luck to the team hunting!

    I'm going out this evening. Probably taking the day off on Saturday and hang with family. Then might get a hunt in on Sunday.
