Where you boys from and what areas of AR. you hunting? Seeing anything?

I live just about 45 min. north of Dallas, TX. I hunt just east/northeast of Hope, small town of Laneburg, AR. My step-father was raised there.

I took a doe on the 4th. I will be going back on the 17th.

I live in Ouachita county about 2 miles from where the Ouachita and Little Missouri rivers come together. My family has a little over 400 acres here and then i hunt a 400 acre lease across the river about 20 minutes from the house. 800 acres and 7 days of hunting and i've got zilch. Been close several times but couldn't close the deal. Between the hot weather and the millions of mosquitoes it's tough. I'm going to wear out my thermacell. My dad saw a big one crossing a field yesterday at 6:15 P.M. so i'm going to try him this afternoon after work.

I'm in Hempstead county about 20 miles from Hope. Wife's family has a little more than 100 acres that I'm hunting. Some of it is hay field and the rest is thick. Really thick. I did open up some old logging roads and plant oats and other grasses, with some oats and peas in a back corner of the hay fields. This is my first year to really devote to bowhunting, and I'm look for that first bow kill. Seen lots of does, haven't been able to pull the trigger on one yet. Found some fresh scrapes today and I did see a good 8 a couple weeks ago. Ready for the cool weather to stay and get rid of the mosquitos. I'm tired of having to use the thermacell everytime I'm out there.

That's a pretty cat. Back when i trapped that pelt would have been big money. Don't know what they go for now. I shot two last year with my bow and i had the 1st one mounted and the second is being tanned. I couldn't afford two mounts at $500 a pop.

I got to shoot something. I'm struggling with the bucks, actually with deer in general. I got blanked this past weekend. They are starting to get nocturnal. Even my camera on my cornfeeder is only getting night time pics.
