Took a quick trip to paradise to ensure everything was ready for the boys this weekend and boy is it dry. Food plots are the worst I have experienced in the 14 years. We have not had any rain since planting the weekend of Sept. 23rd. Going to be a long year for the critters without them, may over seed while on vacation if we ever get any rain. Old man and I will get after it anyway starting the first of the week, going to let the young bucks battle this weekend without us, I am sure they will have a story or two. Swamp hunting(my favorite anyway) will be a premium this year between timber harvesting this past spring and food patch failure. Spending a month or so with my daddy and then the boys when they can come will be great regardless! I always have a secret or two that could produce a fine trophy, just have to be at right place at the right time.
