The boy and I are heading out first thing Tuesday morn for Idaho. Hes 11 and passed Hunters Ed this summer and is super excited to be going with "the guys" to deer camp this year! Have a few good whitetails picked out from the trail cams all summer so hopefully he can connect with a nice one. Weather should be perfect, starting Monday snow predicted for a week straight.
Who can forget their first deer camp?!

Work has kept me tied down!  Frustrating.  But I have heard from several friends who have been hunting, and they say whitetail bucks are really starting to move, chasing and tending does.

 0 for 5 today rattling. Saw a lot of fresh scrapes. Saw a masher buck but too early to shoot a buck I didn't rattle in. Can't wait for the morning!

Rattled in a nice little 4x4 this morning to 40 yards and dumped him. The storm that rolled in last night where I was hunting kicked the rut off hard.

Rattled in a 4x4 in Colville this morning and shot him at 40 yds! He came in at minute 12 looking to see who was fighting!
