It'd sure be nice to see some cool weather, next week is looking like '70's all week. Unless you are hunting an open area it's going to be a bugger to see a deer with all the leaves. But that's what makes it hunting!!!

I'm planning on going out Sunday morning. I ordered a thermacell, but it won't get here until Monday. I'm hoping for cool weather to keep the skeeters away, or at least manageable.

She was 95 pounds. 28 yard shot from a blind. Quartering away. I hit the shoulder and
it redirected the arrow back to make it pass through behind the opposite shoulder.
She went 400 yards and not much blood beyond the initial shot. I called the game warden
and got permission to use my tracking dog. He tracked right to her and we started seeing more
blood the last 100 yards.
I had the big boy I am after 15 yards from me Sunday night. He never gave me a good shot.
I was drawn back when he was quartering to me but drew down and did not shoot.
It was not a good angle and I could hear thunder coming and did not want to chance not
finding him due to poor shot selection and impending rain. He never saw me and I will hopefully see him again.
I had hogs on my blind this morning. And by on my blind, I mean they were moving the tie down
ropes. I never got a shot as when one finally came out in front, another one caught my scent.
I was in my blind at 5am and I was really getting a little nervous as They were rooting around me
off and on until sunrise. Man, they are loud!

You did what has to be the most difficult thing in hunting, passing a good buck cause of a poor shot angle. Hope you get another chance at him and get a good shot on him.
