Who Be a Bowhuntin' Fool ATM?
waterhill ^ | 10/20/12 | yours truly

Posted on 10/20/2012 12:58:34 PM PDT by waterhill

Who is hunting right now? Or will be soon? Its archery season in Texas. I am in the stand in shortsleeves, shorts and flipflops. It is quite warm. I had the ac on in the tractor this morning cutting hay and was still drippin' from my pits. I am in the shade now and somewhat cooler, but not a critter to be found.

Me, my Solocam, six carbons with Magnus 125's, and my DroidPro. Surfing the WWW (wow, I used just read a book, who'd a thunk it!).

Who you be? Identify yourself.

I bet Paul Ryan is wishing he was...

Happy Huntin'!

Here I am, hows work?

Just watched an owl for about 5 minutes, at the Turtle Tank, he never saw me. Amazing creatures.

May move to the El Grande in a little while and see if Mrs. Stompsalot shows up.

Plan on the East Stand in the a.m. and then the West Draw in the p.m. manana.

Too freaking hot for the groundblinds....

Yeah, I have been waiting on those killer LDP’s from the Michigan hunters on TBH (LDP= laying down pics, TBH=Texas Bowhunter.com)

Funny, Michigan hunters on TBH, I guess there is no MBH.com....

Want to hunt Mich. one of these days. Always some brutes taken there.

While you were posting on FR, a 12-point buck walked by.

Paul Ryan is more used to our cooler weather in WI. The guy who hunts our land (both bow and shotgun) has stealth cams posted out in my back yard. He sent me a picture of a handsome 6 pointer the other day.

It’s funny. I see the does and the fawns all the time, but I NEVER see the bucks. They stay hidden, but JJ manages to get pictures every year and he always takes one home.

But, you and Paul Ryan wouldn’t be sweating here. It’s overcast, drippy, and cold here.

Safety first. I don’t like to hear about stuff like that.

I am sorry for the loss.

Sounds like a Welfare Office. ;-)

I am after doe (or a pig/badger/cat/whatever) right now. I can kill a buck later with my .308/.223/9mm carbine/.357/whatever....

The buck are nocturnal now, won’t go into rut until about the first week in November here in N.E. Texas, regardless of what the wildlife biologists (dumbasses) say . (My eyes don’t lie to me)

I’ll be out in the woods on Sunday morning. In the fall a tree stand is my version of church. Yesterday I had 3 bucks walk by, a6 point, a bucket basket 8 pointer , And a really funny looking 11 point buck which could not have been more than 1 and 1 half years old. I lost count of the does and the yearlings which would include 3 button bucks. Probably a dozen Turkey, numerous Hawks, 2 coyotes which I did not have time to shoot , and somebody’s black lab which was laying down next to my van when I returned to it to go home. I thought it was a pretty good day. :-)

I prefer the Ten Point Turbo XLT II crossbow. It also comes in handy during SHTF and TEOTWAWKI situations when ammo is scarce.

Interesting. (And I’m not into computer generated music.) But I thought that it was Pandora that found you. That is, you tell Pandora what you like and Pandora chooses for you, which was cool until Spotify and other portals where you can choose yourself.

Spotify, got it, I think....Let us prey (I gave the big dog a baby rabbit that one of the cats brought into the cabin, he ate it in a gulp: he needs to learn to masticulate/chew).

Masticulate?

Anyhow the damn dog ate the baby rabbit in one gulp.

He is a big boy. 105 lbs. or so.....

Son of a Bitch.....

Can’t blame him. He is Rowdy and proud. I love him and his evil ways......
