    Dude that’s a great story! @Beau Martonik (East Meets West Hunt) would probably love to highlight that on his podcast. Congratulations man!

    I put out a camera last year in a spot I sat this past opening day. The data showed that spot was primarily a morning spot. I sat there in the evening and had serval encounters, go figure.

    I find that it usually begins as a night visit…once they show in daylight the heart pounds a bit faster. I had 3 shooters coming in every evening including the guy I shot on opening day. He just happened to show up in the early mornings for a few days which prompted me to roll the dice and sit in the morning for a change.

Hunting and fishing since I could walk and talk. Appreciate God’s creations and gifts to us all and thank him every day.
