She got a notch in her belt already!  Great going RC!  Judging from you storys and pics here on TG, you must be a pig killing machine.

Took "Hope" out for pig hunt/deer scouting trip yesterday. I went to Big Hammock WMA on the Altamaha river . Its about 20 miles from the house and the place where I killed my very first pig.
  The River is very low and the swamps have very little water. I walked 6 hours and never turned on my thermacel. I was covering ground more than pig hunting. deer season comes in this saturday. I have to work Sat-Mon but was hoping to find something hot to hunt over on tuesday.Mainly Persimmons or maybe a feeding water oak.
  Spider webs are everywhere this time of year....

 

Posed Hope on this log that has been laying in the bottom of a slew for no telling how long...

 

The slew has been dry a while  usually it takes a bit of wading to get around in here.

Came out of the slew and across a ridge on a purty good game trail..

 

 

  A good place to sit if I don`t find some food on the dirt. I would much rather sit over a feed tree of some sort because it will often narrow down the hunting time to evening or morning. Trails in thickts like this could be used at anytime so an all day sit sometimes is what it takes. Found a swamp Chestnut that will be worth another look come late October..

 

  And made through to the River. 2.8 miles from the truck. ..

 

  Looked across on the edge of the Sandbar and 17 turkeys came out and started doing turkey stuff...

I got a poor camera .They are up in the grass..

Angled into the wind to head out and came across this "Boar" tree..

 


Found a mess of fuzzy worms/soon to be winged critters...
 

And found some hope for "Hope" on next Tuesday when I`m off work. Found a persimmon dropping decent and was already covered in deer tracks and had been hit this morning...I jumped two deer and went to see what they were doing is how I found the tree.Its only 3/4 a mile in with a good tree to climb 10 yards from the drop line and has another persimmon 15 yards away starting to drop.Can`t wait.RC

Congrats RC!  I really enjoyed the stories, looks like you are getting to spend a lot of time in the field with the bow!  I'm glad you're enjoying it--kind of like watching one of your kids go out into the world.

I was able to get out yesterday evening for a hunt behind my Uncles peanut field. Its about 10 acres and the deer and Turkeys are wearing it out . I don`t like to hunt "field " deer because they are hard to narrow down. You see deer nearly everytime but getting one close is tuff and if you ain`t careful you`ll kill a week on them with no blood. I`ve lost two weeks hunting field deer before without a shot playing musical stands with them.
  Yesterday a few deer came by to far. I did`nt see`m but heard them and since I had stuff to do today I decided to hunt them again this evening instead of hunting persimmons in the swamp its a 20 mile drive.The field is a mile.
  Got in the stand...sweated down and got as comfortable as a fella can 15 feet in a tree in a loc-on. I did move it a bit toward the deer from before and still kept a crosswind.
  A good bit before dark I heard deer coming. they usually show up in the field at dark so I`m a good 150 yards in the woods. A big doe gets sideways at 16 steps which is a long shot for me and I see yellow feathers go through about right...

  I sit on hoping for another shot but did`nt see anymore.

 Waited a bit and took up the trail...

 

Looks purty good. Its hot and I saw the arrow go where I was looking so I get on the trail right away...

See that foot? Deer ran about 75 yards and was down. Same broadhead I killed the pig with the other day. "Hope" don`t play.

  Where and how she was laying when I found her...

 

  One happy swamper with a purty doe and purty bow..Thank You Lord.RC
