At the hunt blog we have been busy this season expanding our influence and developing new ways we can connect with hunters through various forms of social media and non traditional forms of hunting related media. The blog is full of hundreds of hunting stories and educational posts from around North America and we are continuing to build our webisode library so that you can enjoy our hunting videos from wherever you may be.

As part of our expansion this season we started developing our instagram hunting photo album to show off some of the pictures of our blog writers. This is a great looking Texas whitetail shot by one of our newest instagram followers Jordan Alker (@jordan_txgirl).

Jordan took this handsome looking buck in Shamrock Texas on a Sunday morning hunt on the Lutie Mesa Ranch.

Jordan and her father had decided to hunt together that morning in hopes of finding a big old deer making his way back to his bedding area. It had been a great sit that morning, Jordan and her father enjoying the sights and sounds as the Texas Ranch slowly came to life. They were just getting ready to call it a morning when something caught their eye.

We all know how quickly this can happen. You can be sitting there enjoying the peace and quiet when a ghost buck appears from out of no where. It wasn’t until the last 10 minutes of their hunt and this guy shows up.

It had been a few years since Jordan had had an opportunity to harvest a good buck and she wasn’t about to let this opportunity pass her by. However when that big deer walks out nerves can sometimes be overwhelming and Jordan took her time to settle her aim and make the shot.

The aim was true and her gear did its job as Jordan shot him right behind the shoulder blade and dropped him right under the feeder! She was over joyed and why not! This Texas buck has some great length on his brow tines and netted a very respectable 121 inches.

Truth be told however, as Jordan comments in her account of the mornings hunt, her dad was just as excited as she was for shooting it because he got to use his new deer hoist he welded to the Ranger.

Great welding job!
Great welding job!

All and all the last day at the Ranch for Jordan and her father ended up being a very good one indeed!

Thanks for sharing Jordan and we can’t wait to see more of your deer in the future!
