    Unit 27 Late Oct Hunt

    Congrats! Awesome to follow along.

    That drop antler is huge. I hope you find that buck. Good luck. Sounds like if you find him, you have a great chance to get a shot if you are accurate out to 600 yards. Good luck, Can't wait to see how your hunt goes.

    Live threads with detailed reports like this almost make us at home feel like we are there. I love it.

    Starts in 2 weeks. With my luck, this buck won’t move in day light at all 😂😂..

    I can't ever get a photo of this buck head on, he's always got his head sideways. It's by far the widest and tallest. I'm guessing it is pushing 25-26" wide. This photo was from September 3 so he's grown quite a bit since then. I don't have hardly any photos of him in focus. Everything is blurred or I've got half a rack with nothing to judge against. I know that he will look great in my scope though.

    Now that the snowbirds are back moving in my area, they have the deer moving. Some of the roads where my tracks were the only ones since August are beat to crap. The washes have ran so much this monsoon that the wash bottom in some washes is hard and even when my fat behind is walking down them, I barely make any tracks. I have friends hunting in D12 in southern California and they said their deer are in the flats and not towards the hills like years past. The hard part about flats where I'm at is if the deer are in them, they could be 4-5 miles from the closest hill. That makes it hard to find them, especially with how thick and green the desert it. I am sure you are having similar issues. Stick with it though, you will turn them up eventually.

    Bummer man. It’s been warm in Yuma. 2 of my biggest bucks on camera went MIA Since September. I’m hoping the warmer weather brought them back in....the snowbirds are back in the desert and I think their added pressure driving all over the desert is starting to scatter the deer I’ve been looking for. That’s why my dad quit scouting years ago. He said it’s a waste of time and the line he lived by now days is “they are where you find them, the day you find them”...that’s boring though 😂

    Quail Opener

    I've talked to several people who went all directions from Yuma and the most birds anybody shot was 4. I was out most of the day scouting deer Saturday and didn't see one bird. I've had cameras on 3 waterholes since August and I do not have any quail on camera either. Very odd. The only place anybody saw quail was around the farmland in 41 out by Texas Hill. All the desert hunters didn't see anything. We had a ton of birds last year, I even limited out by 10am one morning. I almost feel bad now for shooting so many last year. The rain did not come early enough this year it seems.

    Deer staying bedded?

    Last weekend, they were up and feeding still at 9am.

    Nice one! All I found this weekend was a bobcat skull.

    I got a golden eagle on a different waterhole...it likes to go hop into the water and take a bath and then sit on the cement and dry off.

    Hard horned is 2019 and the velvet photo is back in early September. Not much growth but has gained mass.

    I’m not a good enough hunter to target a certain buck so he will most likely live another couple years 😂😂😂 But they are fun to look at on camera.

    Well I went and checked a camera and sadly, two of our bigger bucks haven’t watered at this drinker since I changed the batteries last. I did get a new buck on camera though that got my attention. Not the best photos because I just snapped a shot of my computer screen but you get the idea. Solid 4x4 with a small point on one side that isn’t big enough to count as a kicker.
