Conditions were perfect Friday afternoon for hunting. The leaves were dried out from a warm breeze and if anything was moving, I'd be able to hear it from quite a ways off. I was in a ladder stand about 12 yards away from a feeder. I was examining the inside of my eyelids when the feeder went off at @ 4:30 and I nearly jumped out of my seat. That perked me up for the remainder of my sit but nothing showed up or was close enough to hear. Andrew picked me up at 6 p.m. and then picked up the rest of the crew. We got back to camp, cleaned up and went outside for some snacking and testing of some libations. The crew shared their experiences in the woods. There were many sightings of the infamous arrow-evading squirrels but none of the legendary swamp armadillo that Todd sought. There was plenty of hog sign throughout most of the property, but the pigs stayed out of sight. They must not have gotten the memo that there was a hunt going on.

Ok, fellow TG members! A good night's rest under my belt.

Off to the office at 7 to battle the alligators and put out the fires that always seem to appear when I'm away.

I'll be back on as soon as I can to add some more perspective!

Yeah Bob, I know the feeling! I'd much rather be back in the swamp where things make sense!

All I have time to do is drop a quick post or email here or there, oh and an occasional teaser pic:

If anyone was wanting a higher resolution version it's out HERE.

LOTS more to come later.

After those glorious days at Wild Things with all those wonderful hunters, I came back to the crazy world of work. I'll have time to post a story of our hunt tonight. For now I'll just say that I had a wonderful time.

Ok, where to start.

After meeting in Estill with 4 of the 8 (Thom was already in camp and Tom C, "Big Sexy" Brian, and James were still enroute), we arrived in "camp" around 5:30 or so.

I use the term camp loosely, as the facilities exceeded my expectations greatly! [thumbsup]

We all chipped in with the help of Andrew's "right hand man", Charley to unpack all the gear and coolers. Always the eternal optimist, I had brought (along with others) our largest coolers and more gear than any one trad archer can justify (part of the fun)!! [goldtooth]
