    I'm a little slower with a kid on my back, but I did find a buck worth shooting. By that I mean I saw a horn through 8x binos at over a mile just after sunset. He was with 6 other deer that looked like does, but I can't confirm it.



    I packed the kiddo in my Kifaru, and made it to within within 400yds with 10 minutes of legal light left. Unfortunately, they moved back into the sage, and I couldn't pick the buck out of the group before dark.

    The good news is I've seen deer in this spot every time I've been there. I just need to have a full day without other obligations to make it happen.

    Haha. I'll work on my smile. lol. She's excited to get out next time and try to find some deer. I'm thinking I'll take her down again Friday night and camp in my tent to save time and gas. That'll give us Friday night and all of Saturday and Sunday.

    For tonight I'm trying to workout a sneak attack on some bucks a friend of mine (non-hunter) saw this morning. I don't know how it's going to work out, but I'm bringing a friend and giving him the first shot. We'll see how it goes.

    My "little" on (Hunting Princess) is thirteen and we are headed out in DEC for her RFW elk hunt. Let me tell you that it keeps getting better

    Yeah. I can't wait for her to get to the age she can hunt and have tags. It's my goal this year to shoot a deer with my daughter there. I'd like if she could at least see the deer, but she doesn't have the eyes for them yet. lol. We're at a 2:19 ratio so far.

    Good luck on the hunt this weekend and the one with your daughter in December.

    Best of luck to you and your daughter in December!

    I'm way behind you and CJ when it comes to being close to taking my daughter out.

    It's ok though, I like her staying small.... time is already moving too fast.

    It's fun having a little girl because you can throw her in camo one day

    And then deck her out the next day in a dress.

    My wife and I didn't find out the gender until my daughter came out.
    Ask me 9 months ago and I thought my world would have been over if I had a girl.
    Ask me now and id never want it any other way, she is my world!


    I cannot wait to get her on her first hunt.

    So I've been itching at the bit, but my deer season officially gets to start Saturday here in Florida.

    I've got a pretty neat spot picked out, I'm just going to have to wait for the wind verdict on Friday evening!






    In the yellow circle is the last bit of acorns in that general area. While scouting it Sunday I found two does in there (pink dots) and tons of tracks. It's real close to the road, but for some reason it's over looked and no one touches it! Better for me!!!

    The green lines is where they are crossing the small creek. I've got a camera on the north west side of the crossing. There was tons of sign and no one is walking in that far.


    I had a spot I originally wanted to sit because it was loaded with hogs and deer, but it's almost flooded out.








    Now I just have to get through the rest of this week!!!

    Welp... The plan worked perfectly and we found the bucks exactly where the duck hunter said they would be. Unfortunately, we both missed. My buddy missed with the muzzleloader, and I missed with my camera.

    We saw 5-8 bucks, some of them could have been the same, but we saw at least 5 bucks and 2 does. We're going to go back after then on Thursday to give the area a little break. It's a bit of a hike, but I think I'll be able to bring my daughter with me.

    I'd say good luck but by the looks that hasn't been a problem so far, so kill a nice one and can't wait to hear about it.

    As for the deer here in NY, all the corn is getting cut so the deer are piling into my woods so I should have some new monsters showing up soon, and hope to get one on the ground soon!!!!

    I hope the corn cutting pushes a stud your direction! I'm drooling a little thinking about some venison backstraps!!!!

    Had late night tonight. I need to sleep a little, go to work, edit some photos, and think of how I'll tell this story.
