Day one was HOT…yes the deer were moving and it was a great day…I saw today:

8:15 am Small one year and a half year old 5 point

1:31 pm nice 8 point with a small G-2 and a great thick rack.

4:15 a small 6 point again only a year half old with awesome genetics

5:20 2 does run out, then a big 8 point steps out, different then the buck from 1:30, this one was a shooter in most peoples eyes.. Here in Saskatchewan we are looking for a 10 point or better so we passed on him in fading light..

Did I mention today was hot?…In the stand it was 59 degrees, in the field in the shade it was 43.2 degrees…its windy, really windy, 25 to 34mph gusts according to the Kestrel Wind Meter and it is November in Canada….WHAT THE HECK????  We are supposed to be hunting in 2 feet of snow and today it was actually melting snow..What little there is on the ground.

BTW… Brad has a nickname…It is Big Chocolate…Not sure the origin of that..We had a great breakfast, I had Peanut Butter and Bacon Sandwiches in honor of Cameron Hanes…..Very Tasty!!!!

Tonight we had Chicken and it was exceptional……The food so far has been amazing and I think I am gaining some weight from all of these hours of sitting in stands eating way too much.
