If I could figure out how to post pictures from my phone, I would. If some can mentor me on that, that'd be great, since all I have is the phone out here. Will be back in the blind tonight.

I use the iPhone app TapaTalk. Makes it super easy. It's a lot harder without an app.

When we go into town tonight for dinner, I'll see if I can download it.

We are set up in a brushpile overlooking a fenceline with field behind us. Well see how this goes.

Good luck everyone.
went yesteday morning and saw 2 bobcats at around a hundred yards. We have enough rabbits coming to 1 of our food plots that the cats are hanging around. Hope I get a clean shot soon don't need them hanging around making the deer nervous.

At least I am eating venison for supper. I got a big deer stew and a few cold beverages I am working on now.

I tried to post twice this morning from my blackberry, but the dang thing kept throwing me off. I could get the post typed, then when I'd hit "submit reply", it would prompt me for my username and password. Dang it!

No joy from the stand this morning. Deep fog rolled in just at daylight and for several hours I couldn't see a thing. The deer could have been doing the hoogy-boogy in my shooting lane and I'd never have known it. Oh, well, such is the nature of hunting in the Louisiana swamps.

Surprisingly slow night.
About 15 minutes before dark I saw a lone deer moving east to west about 100 yards south of me.
Then just at the end of shooting light a small deer came in and gave me a perfect broadside 10 yard shot but I couldn't tell if it was a button buck or or small doe so I let it walk.

Should be back on the stand tomorrow afternoon.

Well, we had 5 does come out, but no clear shots on the mature ones. My kiddo was busted trying to get a cull buck. Back at it tomorrow.

Paw paw,
When mobile make sure the "remember me" box is checked before you log in....

Well here I am working the night shift here at live from the stand.... waiting on pigs...not much going on its been real windy, the wind should calm down and the moon is good, so maybe in an hour or two things will pick up.

A coyote just went by as I was typing this. His lucky day LOL.

Coyote came back so I took her, wasn't much else happening, that ends the pig hunt however, but its a rare chance I get a good shot at a coyote.

Sweet!

This is cool! I wasn't even considering the other seasons in play when I started the thread. I figured it would be all deer hunters. All these other critters keep it interesting!

The kiddo and I set back up in the ground blind where we had success yesterday. At first, I thought it was going to be a wash, as we spooked several deer working our way in.

During the predawn period, we had a couple coons try to crawl in with us, which made for some fun.

15 minutes after legal shooting light we had our first group come through. There was a really mature doe in the batch, so I took her at 75 yards.

After letting the woods settle, kiddo begins complaining about having to use the bathroom. As I look over to talk to her, there's a cull buck at 100 yards and closing. He made it to 60 when she shot him broadside.

Well, back to gutting, skinning, etc!

I don't care much for deer meat as no one else in my family, therefore i don't hunt deer.

I do find interest in everyone's deer and hunting stories so, I follow every thread.

I may one day line up a recipient of the deer meat in advance and give it a shot.

I don't care for coyote meat either, but those are hunted for other reasons LOL.

If you really want to hunt and no one is interested in the meat.
A lot of soup kitchens and homeless shelters will take a donation of venison. If you check around you may be able to find one that will gladly take your meat. I think this is one of the better ways for hunters to make a positive impact in our communities.

Just a friendly suggestion as we need more hunters and as much positive impact as possible to keep our tradition for future generations.

SC outdoorsman is absolutely correct. In many places you can just take the deer to a drop off station and leave it. No planning or preparation required.

We take many deer to the processors and just tell them this is for hunters for the hungry and they say okay, and that's it.

Just be sure to check into the procedures and required paperwork, before taking the animal. It's very easy, most places; but it's best to know the process ahead of time.

Ok... I'm LIVE from the stand again.

Same exact tree where from I shot the buck.

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&q=42.457502,-76.455359

Hoping for a Freak Nasty Swamp Donkey tonight!

There are golfers and hikers galore. Maybe the deer stay in the woods today?

I'm confused -

are you at the green arrow, or the red flag with "A" on it?

Uh.... Shows as a red pin for me....

There a river, with a foot bridge to the south, a farm with fences bordering the woods to the north. I'm almost exactly between the southern point of the fence and the bridge. About 85-90% toward the fence.

Red Pin with "A"

is shown as "pedestrian bridge" (north end of it). Green arrow, south end of it, is in the trees a short distance south of the fence. It looks like hardwood trees NE of you, but a lot of dead (leafless)trees at the other three quadrants around you. Satellite, zoomed in to the max, picture.

Golf course to the west.

Seeing anything?

Good luck this evening.

I'm going into the thick creek bottoms of the East Texas Piney Woods Wed evening and all day Thursday.
