    I’ve been waiting for cooler weather and took on a boat ramp that I’ve always wanted and needed. Now work is pouring in because it’s hunting season. Lol Going to mow my clover tomorrow afternoon before a big rain weekend! Life is good but I’m really sore after this. Lol

    Today is the last day of our general archery season.
    I could of shot a small buck last week but decided to wait for late season when the big boys come out to play.

    And man is that the greatest time of the season or what ? Pre- rut, Rut. Both great times to be in the woods with a bow.

    It's been a weird bow season here.
    We've been getting off n on rain last week or so. Generally were dry and don't see rain till middle of September.

    Typical here this time of year. We pretty much have a monsoon every spring and fall but all summer long is arid as can be. 2-3" of rain expected today and tomorrow. Pretty typical this time of year. Big bucks went hard horned around Sept 5-10th. Year and a half olds still sporting velvet. By Oct 1st, they'll all be bone.

    Our action doesn’t kick in until around end of October with November being the best part. I can’t stay out of the woods when the deer are searching for each other. We’ve been in the 90’s all week but it’s dropping tonight into the 50’s so that’s my cue to start hunting!

    I’m a weekday hunter for that same reason. I go out every morning generally until noon and work afternoons and weekends during season.

    Re roofing mine tomorrow. Continuing repair from being tossed by twisters a couple years back. Survive some pretty mean stuff since re anchoring. 4 foggers took out the wasps a week ago. Hasn't rained in 3 weeks. Afraid the food plot is gonna dry up. Oh well, such is farming. About $150 I should have used to start a charcoal fire - would have been of more use.

    +1 on the weekday hunter. Recently retired has me ONLY hunting on weekdays. Once the rut starts I'll hunt the best days weather wise since the hunting gets better. Weekends are chore days

    My pup Bodie discussing things with Rufus. Maybe Bodie is an oracle, IDK, but he's talking to 'em awful hard. Probably will say my deer season will suck.:oops:

    Got the metal on the roof today, door landing redone and door hinges reinforced. Sweep out the innards and add a few amenities inside and I'm ready. Just need some rain for the plot.
