Update we ended up with 8" of warm rain ..
by the time sat came we had a thin layer of ice & 20 mi hour winds and are deer don't like it

We did find 5 OK bucks napping in a open field Sunday afternoon ..My son and i were able to pick the 2 biggest ones and put them both down seconds apart...there was some ground shrinkage

Giant buck story is still pending......my son is going to look for him this morning...
I got on a stand after work Monday and had 3 bucks run in so a truck coming down the road would not see them...I did get 2 shots off at the big one not the best shots but i have good bright blood ,,,But the curse of the water .. kept us from finding it last night..
waiting for the call

Congratulations to you guys!!! Awesome bucks!

nice picks did ya float to get in there?i saw the little boats

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
