We set a new record with 50 hunters registered today. We had 6 hunters go out tonight and 2 shot deer. The hunt does not officially start til tomorrow, so they will not count for the Big Momma award. One was recovered by Andy Kaz and the other one we tracked for a long distance and then spotted her so we backed out and will look in the morning. Hopefully we’ll find her not far from where she was last seen. She was shot by one of the new hunters.

First time we’ve ever gotten one on Wed!

Curtis Dan and I are set up in a patch of woods about 80y wide. We have a triangle set up so it will be very hard for a deer to come thru these woods withOUT taking an arrow! ;-)

Still nothing moving here, but no white Oak acorns falling. Usually they start dropping here and we see deer feeding on them. This year the oaks don’t seem to have any mast.(at least on this property)

Chris Orwig found his second deer from last night and had it in the cooler by 8am. Good job Chris!

From: Teeton
25-Sep-20
The reason he didnt find it last night is because he was probably looking down, when its obvious from snake bites pitcher he should have been looking up. Now snake bite don't change the pic. :)

I hope to see you all again next year!

From: Rut Nut

Thanks for participating Art!

Well, the last day was tough but we managed to tie the record. 13 deer taken. We had 2 that were not brought back to camp for consideration for the Big Momma award and 8 of 13 were donated to HSH.

We also broke a record for attendance with 82 registered hunters for all or part of the 3 days. And the “efficiency” we’ll call it was way up this year- only a couple misses and 1 deer not recovered.(Actually it was found 2 days later)

A BIG THANKS to everyone who participated and helped with set up and (hopefully) clean up! ;-)
