12/06/08 am hunt Hinds County

brrrr cold 29 degrees very very slight breeze out of the south changing to out of the west

Hunting a group of finger ridges covered in dropping oaks.... These finger ridges are around a funnel area where the deer funnel between a lake and the damm of another lake


got set up in the stand at 6 am... 7;15 am a good 1.5 yo spike commes out of the funnel feedin up one of the ridges as he gets out of sight a small doe comes in a steady walk along teh same trail... She has her tail raised and just eases on through.... as she exits sight a small 3 point comes through on the same trail never slowing up or looking.... by now it is 8 oclock and I see something on the other side. A small doe eases down one of the ridges and then I see several legs easing from that direction so I get ready and its 4 does with 3 youngens with em... They pilfer acorns for the next 45 minutes or so and as I am wtching them I hear something aproaching from the west, however when I attempt to turn and look the largest doe is on 20 yards and becoming really cautious... I slide down in the stand behind the skirting and turn my head and it is a 3.5 year old cull with 16 inch spikes which I am looking at him through the blind material,, I decide that I will just watch this so I can take my 15 y/o nephew to hunt.... I peer out oover the blind material and 250 yards down into the funnel I see the large 10 point that I havve been hunting but he is headed the other direction and I cant move to get my grunt or can because the cull and all the does are feeding within 20 yards of me... they all finally feed off about 9: 35... I then get my calls out and my book as i get ready to start reading I spot a young 8 point about 150 yards to the west of me... Its 9;50 am now and i wath him as he is not a shooter ..... then at 10;05 I have another young spike with 8 inch curved spikes come out and feeds for the next hour...... After he leaves I gather up climb down and leave....


no evening hunt because nephews 16 th birthday party

12/07/08 pm hunt Hinds and Warren County line


slight breeze out of the south and about 40 degrees


I make a ground blind in the middle of a 16 acre field in a group of trees ..... Only thing other than squirrels spotted was a big Owl fleww up in a tree on the edge of the filed.. It was perty neat to watch him...

hunted from 3.30 to 5.30 no deer

As I pull out onto the blacktop to leave I have the big buck cross the road in front of the truck, he just came from the area I had been hunting... I guess he was letting me know he won today

12/13/08 am hunt Copiah County


chilly 31 degrees wind slightly blowing out otf the southeast


Hunting a large oak bottom surounded on 2 sides by 2 yr old cutover... I hadnt been to this stand in a couple of weeks and on the way to my parking area I find that the culvert was blown out by all the rain last week.... So I park my wheelie at the culvert and begin the 1.5 mile hike to this hunting spot.... I get there at 6 am and I cant find the dag stand... I sit down by a tree and wait for sunrise.... When it gets lite enuff to see I spot the stand only 20 ft to my left... not believing how my morning is going I get settled in the stand and ready by 7 am.... at 7 45 am I have a doe come slipping into the woods from the cutover about 50 yards in from of the stand.... She is at a steady walk I look at her through the scope and decide to let her walk in hopes that she is bringing ole big boy with her.... Stayed here until 10;30 and saw nothing else at all.........

12/13/08 midday hunt Copiah County

winds galing out of the south and warming


I decide to hunt a 10 yr old pine thicket with a 3 to 4 acre food plot in the middle of it..... I get in the shooting house at 11;30 am and settle in for a good 2 hour hunt..... at 11;55 i have a button head walk into the plot at about 75 yards and he feeds for a good 45 minutes the whole time working his way toward the shooting house.....He keeps looking back to where he came from, which had me hoping that something worth shooting but to no avail.....

climbed out at 1;45pm

Windy big time about 44 degrees

Decided to hunt a food plot along a creek in an old pine thicket... Got set up on the stand by 6 am... At 8;20 am had a flock of 19 turkeys enter at about 45 yards and they fed across the plot for the next hour... 1 albino turkey in the flock which is the first time I have gotten to see an albino in the wild..... I wished I would have taken my camera which will be in my back pack from here on out..... Hunted until 11 oclock and saw nothing else
