    183B2A57-94B2-429B-BB12-AE51464E3FEA.jpeg Same here for Illinois 52 days. I’m chomping at the bit man. These last few weeks of August is time to work out all the final details in the woods. September ill shoot some doves and geese to pass the time and iron out all the little wrinkles in my gear and clothing but for the most part I’m ready.

    52 days here in Oklahoma as well! Bow is back from getting a new string and a tune, dialed in tight! Just need to go through my new dozen and slap the broadheads on the true shooters..

    Trying not to count down the days because I start losing sleep. Having to trick myself into thinking about other things...

    It is exactly one month away from today. Have definitely got the itch to shoot something this year as last year I waited for horns to show and let 9 walk by. That big 10 pointer that was there last year is a now show so far this year so no longer waiting for horns to show up (That's what I named him).

    Agreed....more ppl need to do and read what you just said. You should not just throw broadheads on any arrows and head out ppl. Take the time and recon each arrow.

    I haven't even seen one, plenty of scrapes around but they seem to be camera shy!

    There's a lot of standing water on the ground (between 8-15 inches mostly) so its making it a little difficult so ill probably wait a couple of months or until it dries up.
