I was excited to once again be back in South Texas. We were at CTD pro-staff member Kenneth Sutton's ranch, The Rockin' L. Kenneth has an awesome ranch. It's located in deep south Texas SW of Uvalde. Kenneth spends tons of time, energy and resources to manage his ranch. And were blessed to get to be there - it's a fun place to bowhunt.
This week's hunt was going to be extra special for me. Several of my pro-staff guys would be in camp. There was Cody "Butter" Weems, J-Max, Chub, Chad Reeves, Dr. Spike, Kenneth "The Boss Man" Sutton and myself. Usually I'm hunting with only one pro-staffer so being around 6 other guys was great. Our plan was for Cody to film Kenneth but when we showed up on the first day, Kenneth told Cody to grab his bow and he'd film. That afternoon Cody slammed a huge bodied 7 year old 8 pt. Later on in the week I had to film myself in a small ground blind but came away with a 5 year old 145" 10 point. The footage is good for what I had to work with - I was pumped. The next morning I was filming Dr. Spike. You haven't lived until you've filmed Dr. Spike!!! About 5 minutes after daylight, Dr. Spike slammed a 155" buck. Great footage too! This will be a fun episode for me to edit. I can't wait for you to see it.
