January 8th (PM) – Saturday – Hunting Club Jackson County: Austin and I hunted. Saw 15 deer. Four bucks. Three small bucks and one nice 8 point that had one side broke off.  He would've been a shooter with both sides.  The big buck chased deer all over the food plot.  We watched and videoed him for 30 minutes.  He made a scrape on one side.  Two smaller bucks with basket racks fought 30 yards from the shooting house at dark.

January 8th (AM) – Saturday – Hunting Club Jackson County: Shot a monster buck and lost him.  I was hunting in cutover and it was VERY thick.  He was chasing a doe and stopped.  I shot and he took off.  I had good blood for 150 yards.  According to the GPS, tracked him a total of 1400 yards by blood before losing trail.  I think the bullet hit something and fragmented.  It was almost like hitting him with buckshot. I spent 10 hours total looking for him.  He was 150+ B&C deer.  Maybe he will turn up on trail cam pics or will be found dead. I'm sick about it!

October 17th (PM) – Sunday – Hunting Club Jackson County:  Austin and I hunted at the club. I get a new crossbow this summer.  Austin has shot it a lot and ready to hunt.  Saw zero deer.

October 17th – Saturday – Austin and I drove out to my parents at Grant.  Ate some good food and watched the Alabama game.  Got back to camp at 1am.  Tired!

October 16th (PM) – Saturday – Hunting Club Jackson County: Hunted a draw with Mountain Oaks.  A lot of deer sign in there.  Saw a lot of squirrels, one bobcat and no deer.  That’s 14 hours of sitting in a treestand and seeing one deer. I miss South Alabama! 

October 15th – Friday – Meet Kim and Austin at Piggly Wiggly in Gurley.  Picked up Austin and camp back to the camp.

October 15th (PM) – Friday – Hunting Club Jackson County: Hunted a group of white and red oaks dropping.  Setup was perfect.  Climbed a red oak with a cluster of maple trees growing in front of it.  I cut the top out of a couple of smaller trees and they feel over creating great cover.  The wind was perfect.  Of course … I saw zero deer.

October 15th (AM) – Friday – Hunting Club Jackson County: Wind was horrible – it blew from every direction.  I could only see 30 yards from the stand – very thick!  Heard some deer coming and wind blew scent to them.  They blew and bolt at 50 yards.  I had a 6 or 7 point come in at 15 yards.  He was real nervous and finally bolted.  He was too small to shot based on club rules.  Buck was around 160-170 lbs body wise.  I took a picture just before he ran. 

October 14th – Thursday - Spent the day scouting at the hunting club.  Found one small area with a few white oaks.  Deer are eating the mountain oak acorns and there are thousands of them here.  I found a couple of areas the deer are eating well.  Plan to hunt them tomorrow.
