Well a little late on this one but my son finally got his 1st squirrel this past season. Thankfully the little thing was 1/2 blind and deaf or he would have not got it lol. But it makes for one proud papa to hear and see him get so excited about it and he is hooked now.
This Dec me and the wife booked our hunt to Kansas with Horseshoe Hill Outfitters. The area we hunted was near the Garnett area. It was a 5 day hunt 7 day stay. We start our trip on Sunday from Opelousas, LA. we plan to make 1 stop to rest then cont. and be there for check-in on Monday. Sunday- Mr. Bob of HH Outfitters called us as we are driving to tell us that the farm house they use has plumbing problems and will not be able to fix them for our stay. He gives us a address to a near by hotel which he will pay for and our nightly meals at any place we chose. For my wife this was a bit of a disappointment but she hoped on. when we got there our guide was waiting for us at check-in and begin to tell us about the land the lease to hunt there. it was about 2 when he asked if we wanted to hunt my wife did not know what to say and turned to me to ask if I would but I was already dressing for the hunt. We headed out and he showed us our stands. I was able to see a small 8-Point and a doe with 2 yearlings. My wife saw about 11 different deer but no horned bucks. Over the next few hunts we saw lots of does and yearlings but no shooters. On Thursday my wife hunt a small lease with a feeder till noon and did not see anything by now she is a bit down about not seeing a big buck so she came over to the lease area I was on we ate lunch till 1 when I asked her if she was ready to hit it again and grabbed her gun and smiled and said yep. She was on a tri pod about 500 yards from me with back to woods and facing a 15 mph north wind over a bean field. I could see her from my stand and watched over her she had her own seat but saw there was another on the ground and climbed down to get it as a back rest 2 min after getting it slips off and back to the ground. which look to make her mood a bit more lower. I looked back to my feeder and watched it for a min or 2 then I hear her shot (1:45pm) I turn to se her reloading and BOOM another. then the text begin I ask what it was she tells me 'A BUCK' about then it hits her and buck fever sets in 'I think I missed' 'he was moving ' I didn't want him to get in the woods'. I told her to claim down I go over around 2:30pm and just to watch where she shot last. I make it to her around 2:55pm and she still thinks she missed so she tells me about where the 1st shot was Nothing. ok 2nd 'I'm not sure over that way maybe' she said Nothing then tells me maybe the other side of that tree I walk over to it and find 1 tiny spot of blood pick my head up to see a white belly. I wanted to go look a but it was her 1st buck and told her to come and see her Deer. Her 1st shot grazed him 2nd shot was in the heart, he stop to look back before going back in the brush. Now it is the last day and the wife is enjoying her day to sleep in I head to a lease I hunted with no luck and other hunting club next to me driving by my stand and shotting at random things. I head back to he clean my wife's deer. Our guild tells me of a box stand I should try so I head to It. as I get to it I see something in the window so I use my grunt call and it turns out to be another hunter that had moved to it to get out the wind I told him I didn't know he was here and I would move back to a stand I had passed on the way. he then said no no no I will go to it. So I sat in for the last hunt around 4:30 I could hear something to my left I look to see what it was, Squirrel. As I turned back coming down a game trail that leads to a feeder was my buck watch him for 10 min or so then took him down. As I waited in the stand I hear 2 more shots in the direction that the other hunter head. We were a group of 5 counting me and my wife and if he killed that would put us 5 for 5. My wife, other hunters & guide waited at a pond near by till night fall. As the other Hunter walked out they asked if he had shot too? To which he said no and that he moved stands and then he heard a grunt they a 'hey' only to turn back to see some coonass calling him. But even after all the joking he was not mad cause he had seen 12 shooter bucks that week and was looking for a 12-point he got a quick look at in the end we all had a great time.
Working in South Texas for the last month, 6 days a week and only Sunday off. Did not bring my boat with me but did bring my bow for fishing so started calling around a and found a charter that did day time trips in Lake Corpus Christi. Booked and headed out on the lake with wife(Dawn)and a buddy (TJ) and his wife (Shanna). It was very clear day with light winds and the water temp was rising fast so made it prefect time to get the big one sitting on top of the water. at the end of the day we took each a Gator Gar (4' to 5'), 6 needles and 8 spotted. If ever in the area I would highly recommend Matt with TexasBowFishingTrips.com
Well we been hitting red dirt 1st rifle hunt for the last 6 years and it never fails to get us meat. This year the Lil ones for too make a hunt my step brothers son davin(8) and my son Dylan (7)and they got to watch paw paw (Sylvester Colligan) clean his 4 point buck which had 1 broken g2.
Well last year my wife(Dawn Colligan top pic) got into hunting and bow fishing with me and now she is hooked. We headed to master rack lodge with another couple(shantel gerace 2nd pic) in Alabama and had a blast both the ladies got their 1st deer. I also got a Doe along with my buddy. We also made a deal with the owner (Steve maxwell) to bow fish(Jonathan Gerace holding my fish James Colligan) in his stocked pond. Now it is about that time to hunt and wife wants to get her a wall hanger. So looking for a nice place to hunt with nice size bucks in Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas or Alabama. I know it is a bit late but any help would be greatful. Price I am looking for is 800-1000 per Hunter maybe more for better deer/area. Thank you, also here are a few pics from last year at master rack lodge.
