    Up. And to the right.
    Got turkeys running laps around the yard. Massive ones too. More than likely in a month they'll be nowhere to be seen. Typical.

    Today is opening day of archery- Deer. My grandson is an ace shot with a bow but, today was his first attempt to Deer hunt with a bow. It was one of those days as if you wrote a recipe for how you wanted it to go. 20 mins after we got in the stand he got this.

    Nice buck, and good on your grandson!

    Our bow season started on the 14th, but I've only gotten out once so far. Nothing in the woods, but I came home to a 9 pointer standing on my lawn, mocking me.:bluduh

    General deer season opener tomorrow morning. Cold front coming in tonight, so maybe we will see something wandering about,,,,

    My son is carrying a 7/08 rifle, so I am in more of a support role. Just packing a 44 mag in case...

    IMG_20191006_111021604.jpg Not exactly a hunting pic but I thought some of you might like it. Has anybody seen a turkey with the different coloration like the one here? I have seen it a couple of times, these birds live in a big city park where there is no hunting so they are out and about all the time.

    Good Luck tomorrow @tominboise

    Did a little public land small game hunt today to scout for hog and whitetail spots.....firearms opener is next weekend. Picked up a tiny speck of trash on the way out. Mike shot a fox and a grey within 20 mins of getting off the boat. We didn't have nav lights so had to wait till sunup, next time we will and be there as the sun comes up. Mike drug a tire out with him...I couldn't believe how much shit people dump in the woods, lake whatever.....assholes.

    Savannah's first elk, not bad for a 6x7.

    Probably a domestic cross breed. We see it a lot in ducks on the lakes where I used to hunt.

    That's a damn fine elk - a shooter any day of the week. Congrats.

    People that dump stuff should have their fingers broken.

    We did not do any good today - saw one doe and fawn, and a shit ton of other hunters. So it's back to the drawing board and go to a different "secret spot" next time.

    One pic of the country we were in on "the way up" today:

    And a view the other direction from "the top" (not really the top, top, but as far as we intended to walk today

    That is a Kenai chest holster as made by Gunfighter's Inc. It works great. I carried a S&W 629 with 6" full lug barrel all day with no problems, while also using a bino harness and carrying a packframe backpack. I also have the holster for a Glock 20 which works on the same harness. Highly recommend.

    So not hunting today, but we went up to the mountain town where we have a cabin. Coming back from a walk on local trail.....I am trying to figure out how to put a hunt on this critter while we are up here....
