The trip is over and I am back home. It was an excellent trip, even though we missed 2 days to rain and flooding and I missed another 1/2 day because there was still some high water near my stand. I missed another 1/2 day Friday because one of my friends felt sick to his stomach and we didn't leave the cabin until 1pm. I was in the stand by 1:45pm and had a 140"+ deer slip in on me right at 2pm and I couldn't get a shot at him because of brush and trees. I held my bow for right at a minute hoping that he would present a shot, but he never did, before I had to let down because I couldn't hold it any longer. Never saw another deer the rest of the trip.I also figured out to NOT listen to the weatherman and bring warm boots anyways. The 7 day forecast right before we left was high in the 60's and low in the 40's all week. By Monday afternoon(we got there Sunday evening), it was high in the 40's and low in the 20's all week. Snake boots aren't that great at keeping your feet warm, but I managed to get by with little complaining. I had a great time and saw some friends that I only get to see in Ohio and talk to on facebook. Saw some trail cam pictures of some giants, kill photos of some giants killed by locals and saw a few pics of giants that were on neighboring properties to where a friend was hunting. We will go back next year and do it again, stay at the same place(and cabin hopefully) and go enjoy the great outdoors with friends.
I almost forgot, if you don't gain at least 5lbs on a trip like this, you are doing it wrong.
