Hunt 2 McManus 2022
This group of hunters all hail from Florida, The Rice Family and Kinfolk. The Rice's have made this a family tradition and have been making the trip to Mcmanus Camp for many seasons. The weather was getting colder and uncomfortable. But that didn't stop the hunting, Johny wnidsor of Dade City, Fl was the first to fill his buck tag with a nice eight point that was 16 4/8" wide. Johny also taged a doe. The remaining three were watching and waiting for their perfect bucks, waiting for the 'butter to be melted'. It was the last Morning hunt that Ed Rice harvested a nice 11 point, 5 on one side with six on the other, the G2 having a fork. A real pretty 15" wide buck. Winston Rice also tagged his buck on the last morning. A nine point that was 13 4/8" wide that had nice length tines. Winston also harvested a doe with a pistol shot.
The final evening hunt had arived and Kelly Rice had not yet tagged a deer. The evening was coming to an end and Kelly was packing up his gear when out came this awesome 11 point buck. Wasting no time Kelly put him down with a nice shot. The buck was 19 4/8" wide, it would have had 12 points but had a recent break off the main beam of a kicker. Nice Buck!
Hunt 1 McManus 2022
The hunt kicked off with warm weather with a chance of cooler temps to come, and maybe even some moisture.
Here at the McManus camp we had our first ever female hunter join us. Shelby Boblick of Brandon, MS was not only the first ever female to joinus she was the first hunter of the hunt to tag a great 8 point. This was Shelby's first Texas whitetail, at 13 4/8" wide the buck sported nice hieght. On the same evening hunt Tom Gilmore, Shelby's significant other, also tagged his first ever Texas whitetail buck. This buck was a fantastic ten point that was 17" wide. Congrats to the both of them!
Russ Ogburn from Madison, MS was joining the McManus camp for the first time, but has been coming to Adobe for many seasons. The buck Russ harvested was a heavy ten point that was 16 4/8" wide with a unique built set of antlers. We will be seeing Russ at the main camp in just a few weeks.
Jack Jones also from Brandon, MS and also a veteran to the main camp Adobe, was joining the McManus camp for the first time. Jack put his tag on a mature buck that had fantastic mass throughout his rack, at 16 4/8" wide with ten points this buck was nice.
We will also be seeing Jack in a few weeks at the main camp for another camp.
The group finished out the hunt with four does as well.
