#6627258 - 01/11/17 09:11 AM Very windy today. Is it worth it to drive 1.5 hours for the afternoon hunt?

I'm after a mature buck that I've only seen for 10 seconds this past Sunday afternoon. I can't make it back out to the ranch until Friday night to hunt this last weekend for bucks down here. Do you guys think the heavy winds make it a wash this afternoon?

A bad day hunting is better than almost any good day working.

Very true.
If I don't get him before Sunday, I just hope the camera catches him. I saw him for the very first time this past Sunday evening. He came out of the brush chasing a doe and only stuck around for 10 seconds. He had a huge body compared to any buck I've ever seen on our place, and his rack was at least 3 to 4 inches outside the ears with at least 10 points. He's never been on camera either. I stayed in the blind until it was pitch black outside. I haven't stopped thinking about that buck since.

Wind blew hard all day here yesterday and laid about an hour before dark. I'd make the trip...

I agree and would give anything to be out in the woods instead of work today or anyday for that matter

1.5 hour drive is nothing.
