Man this is my first time hunting the field trial area and I have to say it was a mad house. Scouted a few spots and couldn't hunt any of them. Trucks were everywhere! I hunt spots in BW that are never near another person. We finally found a spot where there wasn't a truck and set out for an evening hunt. It wasn't a bad spot but it wasn't a great spot either. Wide open pines with small thicks. We saw 3 does but couldn't get them in range for a shot.

Probably heard like 20 shots this evening. I couldn't believe the warzone we were in ha. I guess we will be back at it tomorrow. Hopefully we can close the deal.

Anyone else out there this evening?

I have a muzzleloader your welcome to borrow. I can bring it with me in the morning if you'd like?

I appreciate the offer but I wouldn't want the responsibility. I've been offered a few to borrow so I know I'm complaining for no reason about having only a bow.

I hope that doesn't come off wrong and you get what I mean. That's a generous offer.

My dad is out there to. I got a text from him at about 1:40 saying he just had spike in front on him at 30 yards and big body come cruising by but no shot.

Saw that spike, he would have been antlerless legal but I let him live to see another day and then saw another buck that fell in the illegal slot. Too big to be "antlerless" and not big enough to be a legal buck. Gonna give it another try tomorrow.
