    Deer Gettin excited

    Me and a buddy got our first hunting lease out in east Texas last March, it's a115 acre pine stand that ain't been hunted in 15 years, we've been busting our butts trying to get this place huntable. We've got 6 feeders with 6 cameras set up. We have a bunch of deer on camera, I've got my spot picked out, just waiting for October 1. We were hopping to have shot a few hogs by now (we had plenty of signs of hogs) but, up until last month we only had one hog on camera, he would come around about every 2 weeks or so. Now that deer season is here, we have a sounder of about 6 hogs and another loner on camera pretty regularly. Needless to say we are not hog hunting anymore till deer season is over. I have not shot a deer since i was a kid, we moved to Houston and i had no access to hunting. 38 years later and i feel like a kid again being excited about hunting deer. I've got the climbing stand ready, cross bow sighted in, gear packed up and waiting. I put in for the 1st and 2nd of oct off of work and away from the wife( they are both thinking about it) lol

    I ain't had a chance to put ANY pressure on the bay this year, got my boat replaced and the axle bearing ate up my spindle, got that replaced and rain rain rain.

    Well, it sounds like your healing up just in time, are you bow hunting? You should be good to go by rifle season for sure. Hopefully you get a monster buck to kinda make up for all that down time.

    Lol, a bargain, Haha i hear ya on that, a hunting lease is definitely a handful. Well that knee should be ready for fishing long before it's ready for walking through the woods.

    I hope so , and climbing up into a stand could be doable but difficult .
