got in the woods a little after 2:30, beautiful day a tad warm but very pleasant long sleeve camo tee and camo pants..

all was quiet till around 3:30 when I see a huge Bobcat one of the biggest I have ever seen, he is quartering away from so I decide to mess with him.. I put a finger to my lips and made a couple loud squeaks, he turns and comes in at a trot and stops 20 yds away on a log looking for the source of the noise..After about a min or so he turns a slowly walks away so I squeak again he turns broadside at 25 yds and man I really wanted to shoot him even eased my bow up and drew with the pin on him, but nope can't kill a Bobby here so I watched him walk away..
All was calm for about 20min when a group of turkey came in behind me and as usual with turkeys when you are in a tree stand they pegged me at 40 yards and started putting and skirted around me... I watched them go to roost about 30 min later..

No deer this afternoon but still a great sit..

Moved a ladder stand a few yards from where it was, now it's tucked between a couple large pines and hid much better..also had to cut down two widowmakers that made me a little nervous. Now maybe those dang turkeys won't spot me next time... IMG_20151107_113206273.jpg

Went back to retrieve scent wick and do a quick necropsy also followed blood trail from shot to where he fell just for practice.... Just as I thought heart shot, this is the exit side barely made it through the entrance side looks like jelly... IMG_20151109_141326710.jpg
