    Well i went to check cams today. It was a good finding let me say. Cant WAIT

    March 11, 2013 at 2:33pm

    Guys went to check my Trail cam today to get surprise that a buck i had in 08' came back for a visit. This just goes to show you that you never know. Man i was thrilled to say the least.

    October 26, 2012 at 9:47pm


    Well I have to say I have been back for a week now and still don’t think I have fully recovered? So to start out I flew into Kansas the Sunday before last. The first night in I got settle in and about 630 deer started to head out to the green fields. About 715PM I notice some hard horns to my left. I noticed a 6x5 with very long main beams walking toward me. I immediately pulled up the binoculars and passed on a great buck. I have to say it was a hard decision but still feel like I made the right call. This buck appeared to be a 3 year old 150 class. So to me that buck would be 170-180 if he made it another year.
    So my next couple of hunts I saw some small 8 pointers but nothing to take a shot at but one thing I notice is these deer wanted greens……. So on Wednesday I wanted to hunt this large alfalfa field. The guide told me CREEK I have no shooters in this field because he had a trail camera set up in that field. I was extremely confident anyway. SO that afternoon the wind was like soooo windy in fact it was like 30MPH winds. Anyway it was just one of those chap-stick days. LOL. About 7PM I notice some movement out the corner of my eye and notice a LARGE BUCK coming into the field. Again it wasn’t like when I saw that 6x5 because I wasnt like no maybe one more year. When I saw this buck coming I was like SONNN a big shooter. my heart was beating like i was on the verge of a stroke. LOL I was trying to calm my nerves a little before I committed. So I was going to glass to make sure what I was shooting at one more time. I counted 5 on the left and 5 on the right with one split G2. So I text the guide to let him know I was about to lay the hammer down. He was glassing on the north of the field and could not pick out the buck until I told him. Well I was still trying to get settle in for a shot then for some reason the buck was getting wind scared it look like. so I knew I needed to seal the deal now. I set up on my sticks then release my TC at 80 yds. When the gun went off I thought I mis-fired because I didn’t see any smoke. The guide text me to say you got him saw the shoulder drop. I was so worried my gun didn’t fire. So I pulled the breech to see my powder was gone. I dont think i have every been that work up. Then I text the guide one more time to say I think we should wait a few minutes and he said no we have to get him now because rain Is coming. When we walk in where I saw him last we found blood and a lot of it. SON I was like a kid at the candy store. After about an hour of tracking the guide wanted to pull out. Well that was a long night for me least to say but still not to worry with the amount of blood that we had found. The next day there was rain so we lost the blood trail. The next three days I looked by myself. I walked through so much weeds and CRP I had blisters on my feet. Anyway to say the least this was the first unrecovered muzzle loader shot that the guide has never found. We all knew it was great blood so I am not sure. I still think WE could have jumped him walking in and should have waited because most of the blood was right where i shot. He Probably ran a Kansas mile. If I had to guess what he was I will say every bit of a 170 plus. I have a 160 on my wall and he was way bigger. His bases looked like coke cans.

    Great time though and thanks for all the Support
    STILL waiting on my phone to ring to say we found him. I know we can only recover the horns at this point but that would be just fine for me.

    Well after about 4 weeks of brutal work it is almost time for my annual fishing gig with all my old collogues. Last year we murder them. I can already smell the mud in the horizon. MAN I CANT WAIT TO FILL THAT TINK!!!! FISH ON BABY

    May 04, 2012 at 9:36pm

    This afternoon I got a call from a friend asking if we could break free this afternoon for little turkey hunting. I have to say I played a little hooky..

    I got settle in around 345. About 15 minutes later I stated calling. Soon after that I heard a gobble. It was close but not that close. Time was going on and I saw a Jake that came out to give me a classic dust bowl bath. That was cool to see. The funny thing is he didn’t pay to much attention to my avians. It was getting later so I started calling light. Nothing was going on however I knew I heard that gobble earlier so I knew that joker could be close. Well I knew I needed to get going a little early because of work so I begin to put some of calls away to pack for the truck. Then out of NO WHERE this cowboy comes in like Dale Earnhardt ran at Talladega. I was shaking like leaf I tell you. He started strutting around my avian Jake immediately. He was so close to my avian I was little nervous that I was going to shot my decoy. I have say when I laid down the hammer when I walk over to my decoy to check to make sure I didn’t puncture it. ( he was so close there was blood on my Avian) Well then I went to see the Bird that had me all tore up. When I arrived at my harvest I was shock to see I killed a Cowboy. I can not believe it.
    I have to say that was the first time I used my avian jake and it was ON.
    What a hunt
