    I completely forgot to add that I will be putting in for a MN wolf tag again this year. Hopefully I'll draw this year :tu:

    Looking forward to reading along and seeing success. Those are some awesome bucks and the history and how you put it makes it so much better. Good luck with the wolf tag too. I'm hoping to start tracking and history with some deer like that too. I got a little background on my rifle kill last year, and on one I'm seeing this year, but nothing like that. Makes it even better to keep hooked in

    Still one cam left to check. No much yet, but that's been with a quick scan on the phone.

    Moved on cam to a sweet new location.

    Had to hump over a couple of dams. Not quite the open water I'm used to!

    Did get a cool view of an infinity pool, Mitchell Lake style :tu:

    Going to be watching this journal intently. Looks like you have some good spots to hunt and good bucks to chase. Good luck!

    Got a bunch this winter, but none yet this summer. I'm sure they'll start showing up now & then.

    Oh Heck Yeah Fitz!! Love following your journals man! I have a good feeling about this year between you and Blade... I sure hope to see your neck of the woods on an episode of BHOD that'd be sweet for sure. Happy Happy Joy Joy :D

    Well, a thorough inspection of todays card pull reveals nothing but does & year old bucks. I've gotten spoiled this summer with big buck picks. This 2 week stint is the longest I've gone without a shot of a big boy.

    I'm excited for the new beaverdam cam. I think I'm going to call that "The Killing Pond" :tu: I foresee some Larson stands going up nearby!

    Good luck Fitz.
    I'm going to keep posting my Kill Permit threads until the Early Season starts in Sept. Then I'll be posting under the title Urban Bowhunting. See you in the contest.
    I'm gonna be in the treestands tomorrow afternoon.
