Striked out today boys...All I seen was some bushes moving and that was it... Funny thing is, Myself and Gixxer left Green Swamp around 11:30 and the only thing on the tally board was 1 doe...Not a single pig, that is so weird!!! Me and him have scouted our area a couple times and every single time we have been there there was pigs everywhere! today, not a single one. Someone mush have sent out a memo to hide...

We were right down the road at Richloam Baird Unit. Nothing moving! All the scouting I did...covered up with deer. This weekend...nothing. I sat a total of 9 hrs in the stand yesterday and a few hours this morning. I saw gators, ducks and squirrels. We saw a hog while driving in at 5AM.

One buck was shot last night, but unrecovered. That's it. For some reason, that whole region was "shut down".

Dude I have no idea how you could stay in your stand for 9 hours it was so hot. We were in our stands ready to hunt at 6 and climbing down by 10. My sweat rag was completely soaked through. On the lighter side of things that thermocell rocked!! After some discussion with Teh I believe that after we move stands about 30yd we might be in there. Besides that, we might hav to move our stands completely across the road from our parking spot cause I think they are coming from that direction and crossing the road to get to us. all that vehicle traffic kept em on that side. Maybe some more scouting to adapt and overcome sound about right. What you think Teh?

It was dang sure HOT! I wouldn't have minded if I had of seen something. It was raining acorns where I was at. I am still in disbelief that nothing came through.

There was a lot of vehicle traffic for sure, to include that one guy with the truck blind on top of his ford explorer parked on the side of the road.

It wasnt as bad as I thought it would be. Me and Gixxer showed up at 3am and was like #5 in line. But even when the gates opened I bet there was less than 100 in line. I will be heading back out there on Friday, I will show up when the gates open this time. Im not loosing that much sleep again just to watch all the dummies driving up and down the road looking for a animal on the side of the road. Im heading out ther Thursday evening more than likely to make a move and put the treestand in a better location.
