    I leave Thursday for my first out of state hunt. I'm headed to NC Nebraska on a minister's retreat hunt with a good buddy who has been supporter of, and guide for Pastors In The Outdoors for several years now. If I have signal up there, I'll try to update a little on the live from the stand thread. I'm very excited for this trip, we'll be hunting a 15,000 acre ranch, and there will only be 7 of us hunting.

    Well, I just got back from NE last night. It was an amazing trip to the boondocks, I had NO service whatsoever. I have to admit, it was really nice to unplug for a few days completely. The staff knew how to spoil you, and I came home absolutely encouraged and refreshed as a preacher. I'll try to get some pics/video uploaded sometime soon. I saw a lot of deer and had some nice 3 year old bucks in range. I saw one true shooter, but he never got closer than 100 yards and was with an early doe. One of the 3 year olds was really tempting, but some of the preachers that come into camp have never had an opportunity at a pope and young buck, I'd love to hear that someone tagged him later on this year or next, when he could really turn into a stud. On a sidenote, some of my hunting buddies from church got together and purchased me an Ozonics for minster's appreciation, and for the trip. I was shocked! I was also very pleasantly surprised to see that those things actually work! It saved my bacon a few times when does and bucks got downwind.

    The videos were too big to upload. Here’s a few pics from the trip…

    Brings back memories. I hunted the KS/NE for nearly 10 years. Beautiful country up there
    Thanks for sharing the pics. I always loved the big bodies, especially coming from TX

    My pleasure! It was some diverse, rugged country for sure. I've never hunted stands within a couple miles of each other that had such different looking surroundings, from hardwood ridges and draws, to sand hills and short grass prairie. I saw the first prairie chickens I've seen in years. I sincerely hope to return one day.

    4D9874C8-0237-4366-9BD1-55DF7969BC96.jpeg Got a few pics to share from card pulls yesterday. Nothing much showing up in front of the camera at the Massey so far, but that will hopefully change soon. Here’s a hodgepodge from several places…

    Rattled in a nice young 8 yesterday morning. The young bucks are coming to the horns real well right now. I’m planning to leave work a little early tomorrow and hunt some public ground about 40 minutes away tomorrow evening. Here’s a pic of yesterday’s buck…

    I plan to hunt the Massey, for the first time this fall, tomorrow morning. I'll be in the above stand, also a first. You know what they say about the first time in a stand! I'll have the Ozonics crankin' for sure. It continues to impress me as several deer got downwind of me while I was on public ground a couple nights ago, and not one spooked.

    I’ve been a little awol lately, I recently got a positive Covid diagnosis. I’m really feeling great, I was able to get the antibody infusion because of my type 1 diabetes. It really does a number on the virus. So, I’ve been spending a lot of my quarantine in a deer stand. I did pic up some cards today and new bucks seem to be showing up almost every other day. Here’s a few pics…

    As I can see on the journals, some great bucks are beginning to fall, I’m hoping our crew can join the bbd party soon.

    Hunted the Massey for the first time in a while this evening and had a nice young ten we had pics of this summer come by. Saw a pile of deer, but most moved real late.
