Had a heck of a day today. Middle son has been practicing with his bow consistently since July. About a week ago something undiagnosed happened to his bow and it’s throwing arrows all over the place. I shoot it, it does the same thing. Had a conversation with him and he agrees he needs to get his bow fixed before going after a deer ( I told him he had the green light on a big 10 point we had on trail cam) but still wants to go out in the morning at the lease close to the house. Get in the blind and feeder goes off at 7:15. Have a group of does come in and at 7:45 a dry doe presents a 12 yard shot and I couldn’t resist. Zip an arrow thru her, load her up and drop her off at the cold storage and it’s off to Live Oak county south of George west to show a property. Finish up around 2pm and decide to head over between Uvalde and Pearsall for a afternoon dove hunt. Pull in the gate around 4 and we piddle around and look for arrow heads. At 5 we get set up and wait for birds. From 5-6 only saw 4 birds, then at 6:05 someone hit a switch and they started coming in droves. Literally hundreds of birds. Had a 2 man limit by 6:45 and we are out the gate by 7:30 headed home.

Put over 300 miles on the truck today but it was worth it, amazing what you can accomplish in a days time


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.
