    Thats awesome. Hoping to maybe get put tomorrow we got little more snow this morning but wasn't whole lot. Haveta check the wheat fields again then may walk some draws. Might get a hold of the neighbor and check some spots but its pretty tough there. Most his ground is crp and its some thick stuff lol.

    Found #6 today. Didn't get to go as long as wanted too but checked one the wheat fields and found this one. Bunch of small ones this year but haven't really put in alot of miles walking so hopefully they're still out there. Gonna try this weekend if doesn't rain a bunch. [​IMG]

    Good eye's! That's one thing in all these years I have yet to find, a true spike.

    I would probably have never noticed it had it not been propped up like that.

    B21E6A27-B8BA-42D5-8EBF-9B0EAD90D22A.jpeg I have a lot of history with the bigger one. Never saw him on the hoof but a lot of trail cam pics of him.

    That's cool, building history with that deer. I'd say it's time to come up with a plan to shoot him next year!

    How many of you guys are using apps to track your steps/distance? Anyone using OnX?

    I'm not, kind of wish I did. Would be interesting to see what the ratio of miles VS sheds. Also mark locations for future reference.

    I always keep a mental note of where I walked and then when I get home make a track on google earth and always get me pretty close but will always under shoot the total since a guy is zig zagging the whole time. I would love to have actual miles but wasn't sure what app to use that doesn't kill my battery or my data.

    It would be far to depressing to know my actual ratio.
