By

This week on Realtree 365, the weather was hot and the action slow. That’s not surprising, but it should get better as we move deeper into October and the cold fronts roll through. In the meantime, there's still hunting worth watching — and a few punched tags — in these episodes. Check 'em out.

On this week's episode, we're back in Kentucky with Mike Reed. Using the most recent information provided by trail cameras, he decided to switch it up on the last day and hunt the morning. Despite extremely hot conditions, and a few mishaps throughout the trip, Mike was able to punch his tag on a great buck.

Then, Mike gives us an update on what he's been doing back in Iowa and helps his daughter, Bella, harvest a doe. Finally, Bill adds another buck to the target list for 2019, a familiar face he calls "The Bladed 10." Bill places a new kind of scrape post in what he believes is this buck’s core and discusses his plans for opening day.

The ranch has 2 miles of year-around streams, 14 ponds, a custom-built lodge and a guest cabin. And as the guys learn, there's some crazy-good elk hunting here, too. They call up plenty of bulls.
