    Actually it’s more like loaded and locked up. My Jeep, that is (minus guns [yet]). I’m ready to go! Original plan was to be in deer camp this afternoon. This past week wasn’t too kind to me, so I’ve had to modify my departure time to early morning opening day. It’s only about a 2 hr drive for me. My brother and his son-in-law are already there. The trail cams have been promising. Four decent bucks and a 450 LB (approx) blackie been religiously prowling the place.  Weather forecast is good. So…I get to take my gun(s) for a walk tomorrow. With any luck…

    Well…”deer camp” didn’t produce anything in the morning for anyone. No sightings, no sounds, not even a distant shot was to be heard. That’s hunting. Luckily, my sister’s property is only about twenty minutes from camp. She too had some game cam pics that showed a lot of promise. One buck in particular, was a 3 x 3, but it hadn’t been seen since his full velvet stage. I found him just before dark. After the shot, afterburners kicked in and the dust cloud tornado’d down the hill out of eyesight. I knew it was a good hit, but was afraid I’d spend the night look’n for him. He only ran about 30 yards over the ridge before piling up in the brush. Skin’n by headlight & flashlight sucks.

    Very nice!  I would say the majority of my bucks were killed in the morning, but I have been in your shoes, after a last minute buck.  They are special.  Looks like good eating too brother!

    My hunt will be in November.  Dad says he is coming to camp with me! Every year he says its his last……Cant wait!
