Y'all Hunt 15 was brutally cold with temps dipping to 3 degrees. Frozen pipes and the stomach bug got one more hunter and guide. However, it was a successful last hunt of the season.
Lots of deer tagged on this hunt as there were extra tags to buy. The heaviest doe was tagged by Devin Byrd at 110#. The most memorible of the hunt was the absolute horrible stomach bug that knocked out 9 people, guides and hunters.
Well it was chilly, cloudy, and damp. The deer were hunkered down staying warm but six buck decided to take a stroll down the dirt lane. The heaviest doe was taken by Scott Patterson at 101lbs. Great camp atmosphere and excellent food.

HUNT 1, 2023
Hunt one kicked off with wet conditions, after the long drought the rain finally came on day one. It continued on and made traveling on the ranches a bit difficult, as we ended up with 3" of rain. It was a very sucessful hunt with 7 of the 8 hunters tagging a buck and my first of getting to photograph a coyote at camp. The deer carcases are in in good health with decent weights, 183# beeing the heaviest. It looks like we are in pre-rut and with the cold spell coming this Monday will probably set off the first round of true rut, we will see, stay tuned. Heaviest doe 104#, Adam Petryszak
