Faith and I will be back at it tomorrow. The counties around where I live are mostly antler restriction counties, with relatively short doe seasons. In my county I can kill 2 bucks and 2 does. 1 buck has to have an inside spread of 13'' or greater, and the other has to be a spike or have at least 1 unbranched antler.

I've already used my big buck tag here, and doe season closed Thanksgiving weekend. So all I can shoot here is a spike or pigs. I can go to the next county over though and kill a big buck on public land still.

That was my plan for this weekend, but my son wants to hunt and hasn't killed a buck here yet in our county, so I'm going to our lease with him tomorrow. I have had a spike or 2 on camera and the pigs are showing back up, so we'll see what happens. If I see a spike or pig they're gonna be in trouble!!

After that I work a week and then start a week of vacation, and while I'm off I'm hoping to be able to camp and hunt quite a bit in the next county over with Faith and possibly connect on a buck there. It is however public land and gets hunted pretty hard. I'll update tomorrow and post some pics from the hunts!!

Another day hunting with Faith today. This morning I set up in a ladder stand where the hogs have been coming in fairly regularly. I heard some but they never showed up. You can see where they've been rooting around a little in here on my corn.
 -
This evening I set up in a somewhat random spot, because I'm limited on what I can shoot here anyway and I wanted to test out this new climber on familiar ground before I start hunting public land with it. Climbed up in a pine with a pretty good trail out front and on my right side, which is perfect since I'm a lefty. Wind was a little finicky and about 5:00 I heard a doe blowing downwind of me, so I guess she caught my scent. Nothing else ever showed, but any day in the woods is a good day in my book. And I think this new climber is gonna work out just fine, so that's a plus.

I start a weeks vacation when I get off Friday, so I'll be back in the woods then!! It's been a slow, tough season for me but I'm persistent.

Hopefully it'll make it soon!! For whatever reason when something headed to or from east Texas goes through Houston, there seems to be problems. Last year I overnighted a big check to our landowner for everybody's lease dues. It never made it and I had to stop payment and drive a check over to her!!

I may not get to hunt this weekend, my son's birthday is today and then my granddaughter's birthday is tomorrow and we'll have her for the weekend. But, I'm off next week and if the weather holds out Faith and I will be headed to San Angelo to hunt the Twin Buttes WMA. Can kill a buck or doe there and turkeys of either sex, and I've never killed a turkey, so I'm hoping everything works out!! If all goes as planned I'll be on the road early Monday morning. I'm shooting this bow really well so hoping I can get a chance at something.

I'm not hunting this weekend, because I'm buying groceries and packing and getting all my camping gear together. Everything fell into place and looks like we will be headed out early Monday morning for West Texas. It'll be about a 6 hour drive to the WMA, then we'll set up camp, find some spots, hunt Monday evening, all day Tuesday, and Wednesday morning then head home. Weather is looking good, supposed to be clear with lows in the upper 30's and highs in the mid 60's. I've talked to several folks who have hunted this WMA and got some good advice.

Another cool thing, my son started shooting a recurve last summer after going to a 3D shoot with me. He's practiced quite a bit and this will be his first hunt with trad gear other than 2 or 3 sits here at home. Hopefully we will bring something back, if not Faith will get to hunt some new areas and we'll have a good time anyway. I'll make sure to take lots of pics!!

So this turned out pretty cool also I thought. Another bowhunting forum I'm on has a traditional archery challenge every week. Last week the challenge was 3 arrows, one at 17 yards, one at 13, and one at 11. Scoring was based on the boxes in the middle of the paper with closest to the bullseye being the tiebreaker if scores were the same. Faith and I won the challenge and got to pick the challenge for next week. This was my first shot at 17 yards.
 -
Then my second shot at 13
 -
Then my 3rd shot at 11.
 -
And a pic of my 3 shot group overall.
 -
I'm really enjoying my time with Faith and shooting this bow really well. Tomorrow morning we'll be on the road at 5 a.m. headed to west Texas. I may not post while I'm on the hunt, but I'll take pics and update when we get back. The weather is looking good so hopefully the critters will cooperate!!
