I just woke up thinking of how to pack the truck and my 'what to take list' is running through my head. Not sure why I am so amped up this year.

You'd think that it's my first time....


Ok, maybe not quite, but c'mon for those about to head out here is a good 'wheels up' tune:

Been running through my list all week. Loaded up everything this morning, just waiting to get off work and I'm gone!

Picking my son up from school around 11:00 and we are gone. He came into the room this morning and was trying to be quite and not wake me up, but all I could hear is mom I'm ready to go hope dad picks me up early today. He is 10yrs old and loves the deer lease that's all he has talked about this week LOL!

Because extracurricular activities keep her weekends booked, my 7th grade daughter was like a sad puppy dog this morning when she realized I was packing up the truck to go deer hunting. She won't be able to go until Thanksgiving. She is smart too. She encouraged me to bow hunt (knowing a rifle gave me better odds) so she would have a better chance that all of our target bucks might still be out there when she finally gets to go.

That's awesome. My little bubba woke up with a big grin on his face this morning too. We are way overdue for some ranch time. I've been so caught up with work and other things that I haven't given opening weekend much thought, but I am looking forward to slowing things down for a few days while I spend some quality time with my son and family.

The westbound traffic on HWY84 through Gatesville was amazing this morning. Lots of shiny trucks pulling campers and trailers loaded up with 4 wheelers. I'm predicting they won't be quite so shiny on the trip back.

This is the first time in the last 15 or so years I won't join the westward migration. I'll actually be heading north for a change. Seems very odd to only have a 45 minute drive to the lease.

I don't get too hyped up for opening weekend of rifle season. The deer have always been slow to move around where I hunt. A month ago,I'd have 400-600 pics on each game camera every month. I went up there Monday to top off the feeders,and there were on 60 pics on the cameras,and all the big bucks disappeared from the cameras. Just young bucks and a few does & hogs.

I'm getting stuff loaded up now,and will head up there in a few hours,but I don't expect to get one of my targeted bucks until the rut gets going good.

Good luck to everyone this weekend,and be safe out there.
