    I had a few daytime pictures of him in 2019. In 2020 he was nocturnal and about 3 miles from where I originally got him on camera. I live in a relatively small town, where I know everyone. Pretty sure it would have been big news if he was shot.

    I can't think of a better way to relax this time of year after a 62 hour work week. 20211003_150700_06.jpg

    If I can get this mature Oklahoma 9 pt figured out during daylight, he'll be in trouble. MUD_0023.jpg MUD_0025.jpg

    I would start using the camera to "backtrack" him until you get him real close to shooting time. Should be able to narrow down where to set up to catch him moving during shooting hours. It's worked for me a few times, just couldn't close the deal (stickbow problems). I've moved cameras over a span of a mile to get to an area where they spend their time moving in the daylight.

    I can hunt the big patch of timber to the South of my stand. It belongs to my son-in-law's neighbor. The West side of the highway is off limits for me. Screenshot_20211004-210526.jpg

    My first sit in a new stand location this year was decent. That would mean I saw a deer :). One doe. Cams are picking up two really nice 10 pointers that I hope to get a chance to arrow.

    Lots of fingers there. Looks like a fun piece to hunt.

    Yes. It has some big, deep hollers. If I kill one too far from the truck, I'll have use a horse to get it out.

    Hey guys, I wanted to give you a heads up that I probably won't be contributing much if anything to the team this year. My FIL has been in and out of the hospital the last month with severe brain swelling and the doctors have not been able to find the underlying cause. If this is not his end, we will be putting him in a nursing home very soon. My MIL has her own severe health problems and cannot handle this on her own. My wife is an only child and circumstances are forcing us to take over their care. Needless to say, that has to be my priority right now and will most likely cost me most, if not all, any free time that could be spent hunting.

    I am going to stay active and be cheering you guys on. I will definitely get out if I can, but that may not happen until late season at this point.

    Sorry to hear that. Its never easy, Lost my FIL to cancer 1.5 years ago...the ups the downs the hour drives to the hospital every other day, the sitting and waiting, etc. I hope for the best for you guys, when you can get out, try to clear your head and just be.

    No stream. It's very steep so it probably wouldn't be ideal. There is a logging road on big a big oak flat that would be better. 20211006_150725.jpg
