    Little frustrated, got a new buck that is making a regular appearance on my 20 acre piece of private. I'd guess 145"ish, what yall think?

    Very Nice Bowafide!!! im breaking the frustration by heading up to Minnesota tomorrow to grind on some waterfowl. Should be a good hunt. Big cold shot coming day after our last hunt. Then to get back after a big boy with the bow. Its not over till its over. This buck was killed the other day by a guy i know on the island i hunt.

    Well guys its been pretty slow for me the past few weeks. The IL gun season was a bust. I am hoping to get back out this weekend.

    Had a great time in Minnesota hunting Canadians. Despite low bird numbers and crappy weather we had a couple good hunts[​IMG]

    Figured I would check in since its been a lil while. This season has been a true struggle. Our rut wasn't even exciting. Seems that our doe to buck ratio is way out of whack. Still grinding every chance I get, they are there just need one to mess up.

    keep at em timmy. im the same. i killed another doe before i left for Minnesota goose hunt. but rut activity was a huge let down and i havent even seen a good buck while on stand except from 200 yds plus and didnt even see his head gear. Im taking a break to regroup. I need 6 inches of snow and extreme cold. I have a couple acres of standing beans to hunt

    Man we have all dropped off the map! I am still trying to get another deer down. Hoping to get back to Indiana next week before the season ends it just depends on the weather. Work has really been screwing with my hunting plans this year. I was supposed to go hunting the past two weekends but instead I was traveling to and from Little Rock AR.

    Have a Happy Holiday guys!

    We have fallen pretty far behind but we are still in top 5. Work is screwing with me too henson. I haven't been out deer hunting in weeks. I'll get a couple more hunts in hopefully before season closes Jan 15.

    Well my last hunt is going to be Dec. 29th and 30th. Hopefully I can at least get a doe on the ground to finish filling my freezer.

    Hey guys sorry I have been MIA for a while. Things have been crazy. Haven't been out for a while but not done yet! Been a very tough season for me and really gotten me out of the mood to even hunt anymore but will be back out next week!

    Even tho my season has ended I'm still over here cheering the rest of you on. I was able to get out for a couple days before it ended with no luck on my side. Good luck to everyone who's season is still going

    My season is over. It was a pleasure teaming up with all of you to make a run at the title. Good luck to anyone still out hunting.

    Well as of now I'm done fellas. Wish I could have helped more but it was a horrible season. I did let some very marginal deer walk which I feel good about. Never did retrieve the one I shot back in Nov. I may try to make it out in KY yet since I've got about 10 days.

    It has been a horrible season as far as activity goes for me. I passed some 2yr olds that will be nice in a couple years. I might make it out one more time if work permits but I doubt it. All in all I still had a blast. Even if I knew next season would be worse than this one, I would still be out there. We had a good run and there was some nice deer put down by our team. I wish you all the best of luck in every season to come. Hunt Hard, Hunt Safe! God Bless.

    I'm done. I still would have time to go get a doe,but it wouldn't help us and I don't like the idea of killing a pregnant doe. Getting soft i guess:lol:. It was fun. Good luck in the future guys.
