    Three of us hunting at the farm this weekend. Which I saw two different basket 8’s and one 6 pt ..and several does. But nothing I wanted to squeeze the trigger on. Which that was pretty much the story between two of us hunting.

    As my son in law dropped the hammer on one. A decent 9 with an 18” inch inside spread and good G-2’s & G-3’s. Just a solid buck.

    Which the back story here is I missed this same buck at 15yds with my longbow back in September. So it’s a little redemption to see him put him on the ground and glad he got him. I also believe it’s his biggest buck to date. He did good.

    Hunted all weekend and didn’t see a deer, can’t figure it out. Everything was dead, the same cameras I have had up giving consistent pictures hasn’t had but a few pictures taken in close to a week. I heard shooting in the hollers next to me but nothing traveling through my saddle

    The last hour and a half of LSL was by far my best time in the field so far this season. Had 15 doe and fawns in the field at the same time and the last hour included a 3.5 year old 9 and a 4 that made sure to check every last one of the doe at least 7 times. It was very action packed. Funny thing was I only heard one shot in the last two hours of the day. In all this was a good opener for me even though Im still packing all my tags.

    The Shamanic Dream Team had a record book KY Rifle Opener

    1) The Coldest Opener in Camp Record (24F)
    2) Earliest buck taken (Angus' 10 pointer at 0648 ET-- 3 minutes into season)
    3) Most tags filled in a weekend-- Angus is tagged out. SuperCore and I both have our buck tags filled
    4) Fastest speed-gut. It took Supercore less than 5 minutes to gut his buck last night. We needed to make the processor before it closed.

    Here are more pics and details:
