My morning hunt was pretty quiet. I did, as with so many of my sits on this trip, get teased by a small buck. To the hour, I’ve let a total of four bucks walk on this trip. Not like me at all, but I’m looking for a particular buck and passing other bucks is just part of the process. Doesn’t mean I like it👍.
It’s now my last evening in Oklahoma, and sadly, I can’t hunt the big eight point. The wind, with its more easterly kick, is terrible for that location and the area is under a Tornado Warning for the next several hours. For this reason alone Scott and I thought it best to pop up in a stand close to the house.
My last evening Sooner State perch is nestled in the red hills that make this region one of my favorite anywhere in the country. The stand looks over a massive wheat plot and currently, there are nine does and fawns and a small buck out in front of me. Can’t think of a better spot for my last evening, and who knows, the good Lord may just have a pull-a-rabbit-out-of-a-hat buck for me.
