Last Minute Red Stag hunt!!

Recommended Posts

I was eating supper last thursday evening, and normally I won't answer the phone while sitting at the dinner table...... thank god I did!!!!! A good friend of mine called and informed me he had a last minute cancellation on a hunt and wanted to see if I could go!!!! A quick check with the wife and called the boss and checked with him.... I called him back and said when and where! Well the hunt was starting the next day, so I packed my gear and rolled out the following morning to Uvalde to the Live Oak Ranch. A very nice high fence ranch, John and Karen the owners are very nice and are very involved with the hunts and hunters, they made me feel right at home, very nice accommodations. The cook fed us like we were Kings, I think I gained 10 pounds. Friday evening I didn't see a Stag but could hear them bellowing all around. Saturday morning I had a Stag under the blind and he bellowed extremely loud and scared the heck out of me, I had no clue he was under there till he did that. He finally stepped out to about 100 yards and was able to get a good shot with my 7 mag. He ran about 15 yards and crashed into some trees. Awesome hunt!!!!

Thanks everybody, my friend was hosting the hunts so he didn't get to hunt any. He's going back in a few weeks to be able to hunt himself. God has blessed me with a great life, and has surrounded me with great people.

 

I just got home and its 3:50am, I was bow hunting in Howard county, just outside of Coahoma and had a successful opening day bow season hunt. I shot a big 8 point. I had an eleven point at the feeder as well, and maybe the 11 was a little bigger but for some reason I just love a perfect 8. I will upload a pic when I get up later.

 

Thanks
