I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

Yes. I took the suggestions from the other thread and it revealed a lot. Iím now inside a 4Ē circle consistently. The issue was anchor point movement, slight but still enough.

That was fun, thanks.
I have done some looking around at the ranch this last week and have found many scrapes already. Last night I decided to sit a blind and just watch. I had a nice 4 point come to 10 feet of the blind. I was just waiting for him to blow but he never did and went right behind the blind. I never shot but had many opportunities of broad side looks as he was coming out of a deep canyon where they must bed.

Good luck keep us posted on your hunts.

What's the blue stick stuff...?

The only places we have that much sand is along some lake shores, sandbars in the rivers, and sand pits for aggregates (sometimes not under too much real dirt). But woods and farmland that sandy, nope, not at all...
