I spent the last week at the lease with the exception of Halloween night to which I had to return home for some trick or treating and then a drive back for the next mornings hunt. Let me start by saying the rut was in full swing but with the temps it was very slow feeder activity.
One of my top prospects decided to break half his left side off just past the g2 so he took himself out of the running. Sad thing is I saw him almost every day I was there. I saw a few 4 year olds but nothing I wanted to pull the trigger on just yet. Most of my activity was around 10 in the morning but my other top prospect never made an appearance.
My brother finally came down Thursday night and we checked his cards the following morning. A couple of my top prospects have been hanging out in his area which is right next to mine. We finished out bow season with nothing on the ground. We got back to camp and there were several lease members that had made it down for opening morning.
The next morning my brother was able to take out a nice 8 pt just after first light. Looks like I will have to find another buck to target
I was finally able to put a hog down opening evening. Can't get pic to upload. I did have one shooter come in yesterday evening but just didn't want to end the search for my trophy just yet. He finally ran off with a doe and had he came back I might have changed my mind
