    I am ready to donate my services to my future team........

    which means 0 points, plenty of selfies, and I can now provide mental health counseling if needed.

    I thought we were waiting until the 3rd week of August?? I'm glad we didn't. Let's get this party started.

    That was just a guess on my part based on what Justin had stated.

    Wish our 2017 team would have been 2018, it was epic and disappointing all in one :lol:

    Haven't checked cams since March, probably all dead or pics of weeds. Haven't touched bow since before that and waiting on cls to decide when taking vacatcion so can steal his ideas on when to hunt. Guess I'm ready for the season?

    Announced it awhile ago, will start on Thurs. Nov. 7th and end on the 17th. Put it in January 2nd when the system would let me put in 2019 requests.

    Have firearm tags and hunting private land so I can use bow through 1st firearm season.

    Bow will be here tomorrow, haven't pulled one back since 2015 season

    Mental health counseling is the least you could offer. Most
    Likely it was a certain selfie a few years ago caused the need for it.

    So how many of us will be affected by all the flooding this Spring?

    I know a lot of the fields around here were put in as beans due to a very late plant. The corn that did make it in was either on time which was probably a small percentage or last minute. I'm expecting beans this year and probably standing well into November and possibly December.

    I know it's probably a bit cynical to worry about as the farmers are the ones taking the biggest hit in all this, but it is bound to come up in the Live From the Stand thread a time or two.

    Been too busy to worry bout it really. Crazy spring we had with all the rain pushed everything back. It's pretty normal for any other year tho. Don't really start worrying abouting hunting season till mid August to first of Sept.
    Haha yea I was gonna look back and see what did last year. Think took off 2nd week of November. That's usually a pretty good bet, but will probably look at that or touch later between shotgun seasons. That's when usually picks up on farm I hunt anyway. Later than that it gets pretty dead. You go way more detailed into the planning then I ever would tho so I always check and see haha. This year might depend alot on work tho. Depending on what weather is doing we might be pushing to get some jobs in before crap weather hits again. Just haveta wait and see.

    There's only one field of corn that will be standing to combine on farm. Didn't have much to begin with, maybe 60 acres, but 25 of it got sprayed with wrong chemicals and killed it off. It's all goin to silage. There's a big block of crp that came out and got beans planted in it tho on neighbors so hoping that holds the deer little closer this year.

    Only planning I've really done is trying to focus it around the Full moons. Then last year I killed what is I believe my 3rd buck on Nov. 7th so that has become my must hunt day. Most have came after that though, had my 1st P&Y buck with a bow on Nov. 5th but realize now anywhere from the 5th to mid November has been best.

    Usually my vacations start on a Friday and end on the second Sunday after, 7th falls on a Thursday so it will start then.

    Last year we had a rather cold Novemeber, I'd love to see highs top out in the 50's this year, but who knows.
