    Seen a whopper boar this morning. I was sitting on some scrapes and he followed a little ridge past me. He never got in the open so i could get a shot off. Poison Springs WMA has a bunch. About any of the hardwood bottoms there have hogs. I get more hog pics there than deer. They are fun to hunt but they are heck on feeders and food plots.

    Sitting at work wishin I was up a tree right now. Knowing the movement is getting better by the day makes it even harder! Trying to sneak out early tomorrow afternoon and climb up for a quick evening sit. This time change makes it nice to be able to sit until dark and still catch dinner with the family.

    Following my surgery, I got on the boat halfway through my hitch. So only working two weeks this time. Going home sometime tomorrow. With my usual luck it probably won’t matter, but I’ll be getting out just the same.

    I’m still chasing them with my bow. I’ve seen a bunch of bucks and a couple that were shooters if I would have had my bow in my hand. This time of year you just never know when one will show up. It could be 11:15 a.m. or 2:25 p.m. They could be checking a scrape or chasing a doe. All day hunts should on the table when the rut is on and a full moon. Lessons learned so far this year.

    I going back to my bow this weekend. I haven't seen a good buck all year. I've been holding off shooting a doe in hopes a good buck will show. Hoping its a matter of time. I really hate the time change as can't get out after work now. Good bucks showing up at nighttime. Still gonna try

    Hunted north central Arkansas for 5 days last week and never saw a buck. The one that was killed in our crowd wasn’t swole up or hocks stained or anything. It was really weird considering we had 30 degree temps first part of the week. I’m still after them. Hopefully this wknd brings something good! I’ll settle for a doe or two if I need too...I’m one of those that watch many and always hold off waiting for a buck as well. Good luck y’all.

    PICT0078.JPG Congrats .Emile! I need some luck. I got the bucks but am never there at the right time. I pulled the card from the camera where I hunted today but was a 1/4 mile from there yesterday looking at much smaller bucks. PICT0075.JPG PICT0078.JPG

    Yesterday morning I saw 2 shooters but when they’re smelling or looking at the real thing, calling to them is a long shot. Moved stand 35 yards. If they cut this corner again this morning I should be in bow range. Back to a weekend warrior after today until December.

    Sat yesterday evening on my other lease. After sundown, I had three does and a yearling cross the draw on the same trail I’ve been seeing deer on... 50 yards away. One or two minutes later, a small 8 point went through trailing them. At last light, a spike came in the the feed pile. I’ll get back out tomorrow.

    We went on the 2nd and stayed a week. I saw no shooters but did see several small bucks chasing. Had does in range a couple of times but failed to get shot off. We saw deer every sit but getting them in bow range is tough. Those are some smart deer. It was fun. The guy camped next to me got a 7 point but not a monster. Probably 110” deer.
