Me and my regular hunting buddy, Troy, had been hunting quite a bit over in WV, and now season is in in Ohio. Entered a pound hunt on Saturday night at our club. We hunted OV Jimmy, Sassy, and Snap. Ended up treeing a 16 pounder, a 19 pounder, and one that we didn't weigh. 3 dumps, 3 coon, and called it a night. Good start for the yearly pound hunt competition.
Sunday afternoon, me and Troy went out to try to get permission to hunt a 600 acre farm. Dad had got permission to hunt it prior to his health going down hill but we never got time to hunt it. I really regretted not being able to hunt that place with him cause I'm sure it has a lot of coon. Anyway, the landowner had all ready given some other guys permission to hunt and he didn't think it would be fair to the other guys for me to also hunt it so he didn't give us permission. But, another guy was at his house and he told us to go check with another landowner that he thought would let us hunt. So, we went to look this guy up. Shortly after dark, we pulled up to a house, turned out it wasn't the landowners house, but the landowner of the farm we were looking for was at this house. Started talking to him about coon hunting and he asks who we were and where we are from. I tell him and the other guy that was there says that's funny, I just bought that truck over there and the name that was on the title was a Smith. I turned around and low and behold it was my Dad's truck. Dad had left the truck to his girlfriend and she had just sold it to this guy that same day. The gentleman was nice enough to give me Dad's personalized license plates that say "BLU TICK". I really appreciated that. We also got permission to hunt. We hunted Lou, Sassy, and Sledge and treed 2 singles and a double and called it a night.
