Took a while but healed up and finally able to step away from work to hit the hills in a wonderful 96 degree day. With limited hunting land available it was slim Pickens and didn’t see a deer until 1130! The swaro could make out some bone but at a mile away and heat waves that was about it. Elected to make the 1.5 hour journey over and thankfully it paid off. Nothing like hiking out in the heat of the day!
I have tried to get some of the guys to come back over but they had issues they didn't want to expand on. Still think some of the guys who are not members who are always checking the forum out should join, It's not like it cost anything.
