Took Sheba out again tonight. Cast her off an old woods road. She struck quick and treed quick, I walked in to her and she was treed up a medium sized oak. I looked it over. There was a couple of places he could have been, but I really think she just missed this one. I cast her from the tree. and she went on down the swamp a couple hundred yards and struck again, moved it on in another 150 yards and locked up treed again. I walked in to her and she was treed up another oak with the top broken out and the coon was sitting right in the top. We left this one to run again. I went on down close to the river and cast her again. She went in 150 yards and struck a working track. Crossed a slough and went up it 150 yards and treed. I walked in to her and she was treed up a hugh oak. I walked around the tree a couple of times shinning. I walked in and shook a vine and walked back out and looked and there he was sitting right in the top. We left him to run again. And headed back to the 4-wheeler. About the time we got back to the 4-wheeler I discovered that somewhere during the night I had lost my phone. I Wasn't positive that I had brought it with me, But was pretty sure I did. But I decided I has better come back to the house and make sure before I spent a lot of time hunting it. I came back to the house and checked and yes I had lost it. I went back by my neighbors house and he got his phone and went with me. While I was going back to the swamp I got to thinking that on the way to the last tree. While I was walking up the side of the slough an Owl flew up on a limb close to me and I wanted to take a picture of the owl and I thought I could remember taking my phone out while I was trying to get my camera out, but I wasn't sure. Unlike most of the guys that hunt with me that have a camera and phone all in one. My phone and camera are two different items. So we decided to go to the last tree first and check where I had taken the picture of the owl. We got to the slough and crossed it and walked up the side of the slough to where I had taken the picture of the owl. We tried ringing it with the other phone, but didn't hear anything. We walked on in to the last tree. I figured it would be where I was shaking the vine. We tried ringing it and we just could hear it ringing. We walked toward the ring and found it about 25 yards from the tree, where I had walked out from the tree shinning.
