So far it's been a good year. Wife shot her first one the 2nd day of ML, saw 8 the first hour that morn. She was anxious and wanted to go look but we waited the 30 minutes and still had deer come by, got busted trying to get the primer in
. Trailed blood for 700 yards and never recovered it. Day before Thanksgiving got a 9pt, he was with 3 other bucks. A pic included is 20+ minutes after I dropped him. Few days ago got an 8 just after legal hunting light. Hunted 2 WMAs inside Bienville NF north of here the past weekend. Around Montrose (tallahallah WMA)Lots of chasing going on and shots going off like I've never heard, place was crowded. Caney creek WMA outside Raleigh saw some does but no bucks. Hardly anyone hunting in that area and few shots. Shot a yote behind the house Wednesday and keep seeing this nice looking fox squirrel I may go after soon. Still got one more buck tag and the ruts at least a week away. Only been seeing does lately and my work schedule doesn't look good for hunting much.
