  1. Great rack for a euro mount. Any funky looking ones like that look better on a skull than a set of shoulders, imo.
  2. Perfect place to spend self isolation: at the lease hog hunting in this kind of weather. Going with dad tomorrow night. We tried about a month ago with no luck, but we've been running the feeder late from that point until now, and we have a game camera set up to see what's been coming to it. They should be out and about in broad daylight with the wet and the cold, or so we hope.
  3. This is, uh, bad shit. The minute that there's a confirmed case of a human contracting CWD, the game is over. Until that point (if it ever happens), I wonder if baiting becomes illegal in the near future since that's one of the easiest ways for a local herd to spread it. The public backlash from that would be severe, though.
  4. Busted this guy with my bow on Saturday evening. Hit him in the liver/lungs, he ran 50 yards and crumpled underneath some mesquite. Deer are moving pretty well up in Llano/Mason right now. Small bucks are all chasing and the big guys are just cruising. Had a really nice 9 come through with this guy on Saturday morning, neither gave me a shot. He came through by himself in the evening, had to grunt to get him to stop. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Good looking deer, love the curly antlers. Story behind the buck? I've only gone out for a couple hunts, been busy with other life things. Hoping to go out on Sunday morning and do a long sit. Going to take a doe if the opportunity presents itself.
  6. The Eyes is still too damn fast, but since it’s been happening for two years, it seems like everyone has caught on. Still annoying. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Have a couple. The first occurred when Dad and I were dove hunting near China Grove one morning before I had to drive back to Austin for class. We were standing about 50 yards from one another, and this single dove flies in above him. He shoots and misses, and it circles back around towards me. I shoot and miss as well, and it circles back towards him. We repeat this exercise, with the dove circling back and forth and with us missing the dove, until we've both shot our three shells. The dove flies off unscathed, and we both bust out laughing, yelling to each other about how Gramps (his dad) is laughing at our sorry asses from up above. Lord knows he probably sent that dove to knock us down a peg. The second is also with Dad, this time in 2015. We were at our deer lease down in Oakville, and we were planning on taking a doe out of the group we had seen the previous evening. We're sitting there bullshitting in the stand (talking about World War II of all things) and waiting for those does to pop out. Out of my window, I see this nice buck starting running down the sendero away from the stand about 15 yards away, and I grab my gun and put it through the window, trying to get a bead on the buck. Dad can't see the deer yet when I pull my gun up, and he's wondering what the hell I'm doing, as he doesn't see anything at the feeder that's 150 yards down the sendero. A second or two later, in his words, he "saw antlers come into view in the window". Well, the deer wasn't stopping, and he was whisper yelling "he's not gonna stop, he's not gonna stop" in my ear. He lets out the loudest grunt he can muster, and the buck turns perfectly broadside, looking back to see where the grunt came from. I squeezed off the round and dropped him right there, and the next thing my dad says is "Great fucking shot, son. Great fucking shot". From first seeing the buck to him being on the ground, it couldn't have been more than 8-10 seconds, and we had never seen that deer before. Funny how hunting works sometimes. Now I get to see him hanging in my office every day.
  8. Dove season comin’, only 26 more days. 53 days until whitetail archery opener. Had a lot of fun this spring/summer dialing this guy in for deer and hogs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Brad Nessler for sure. It's a shame he's on a team with the asshat Gary Danielson, but Brad has the voice and the tempo for it and I'll listen to the CBS broadcasts if only for his calls. Love Craig Way for anything, but one thing I really enjoy is when he's flabbergasted by a call the officials made. When he's openly shocked at a call, you know it's a bad one.
  10. Dean Mortimer has a history of satire on aggy sites. Hard to believe, but some of them (such as a few guys on Goodbull Hunting) do have some self awareness about how ridiculous they are. Doesn't change the fact that they're aggy, however

  12. Allergies have been kicking my ass as of late, often at random times where I'm not exposed to cedar or animals, two things I know I'm allergic to. Suggestions and pricing for an allergist in the Austin area? I have an HSA and high deductible plan, so I'll be funding any trips to the doctor through that.
  13. Been meaning to post this, shot this guy over opening bow weekend in Mason. Tons of pigs out there right now. Got him made into some sausage that I cooked the other night. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. Been on a stretch of decent golf since last Friday. Shot 42-40 at Kizer and then a 43-36 at Mo Willy. First time I've shot even par on any 9, have had a few 37's before. Amazing what happens when you don't give up strokes to double bogeys and can squeeze in a few birdies on a side. Played Jimmy Clay yesterday with a buddy of mine and shot 43-40 from the blacks. It was empty out there, so we both had a little fun and played some old blades, Hogans for me and Wilson Staff for him. Haven't played those since college, it was fun to bust them out again. Going out to Vegas this weekend, playing Las Vegas National on Saturday morning (buddy's dad is paying, so I just said yes when he said he wanted to play there). Any wise words about the course?
