A grand opening weekend

Postby deerslayer64d » Mon Nov 08, 2010 11:29 am

wow is all I can say , I have wated many years to have my own lease to come and go as I please and to manage the way I wanted ! Took the day off friday and got to the ranch about 7 am , drove around the pasture and fed roads and collected a few quail for dinner later that night , just sat around camp allday relaxen and watching deer come and go at the camp feeder ! fired up the grill around 5 to cook my bounty quail breast one slice pepper one slice portabella mushroom and a slice of bacon salt & pepper !

The weather was great for south Texas , clear calm and 39* on saturday morning , I saw some 25-30 deer does and small bucks , and had a bobcat walk right under my blind ( that was neat to see ) the afternoon hunt was about the same with no shooter bucks being seen , but did see quiet a few pigs ( future BBQS ) Sunday morning broke just as saturday did clear calm and cool . ( man I love a south Texas sunrise From the deer stand )I had about 15 doe in the road where I fed corn on the way to the blind , and pritty nice 8 point down at the feeder , I saw the buck I was looking for about 1000 yrds down the road behind all the does and he was walking my way ! around 500-600 yrds out he went into the brush and compleatly dissapeared ! I figured he was gone as I scanned the brush to see him , I just could not find him , my eyes were getten blurrie from looking so hard . I turned to my right to look down to the protene feeder and there he stood !!! how he got there I dont have a clue but Im sure glad he did !!!! I stoped at las cazadores and had him scored on my way home , he scored 146.7/8

Nice DS, I tried to resize these for you but it distorts them too bad and you can't see anything. Sounds like you had a good time this past weekend.
