    Ok officially got it entered on scorecard page. I had a perfect wind for the trail I was hunting but the deer had different ideas. He was following 2 does on a trail & the does winded me & took off. The buck kept goin & when he winded me he just stopped & looked around. At this time he was @ about 60 yards. I grunted @ him until he saw my buck decoy & looked like he was on a string. I gave him a (mepp) to stop him in my shooting lane @ 16 yards broadside. A well placed arrow in his boiler room & he ran about 70 yards & dropped like a tone of bricks. The blood trail was amazing! image.jpg image.jpg

    Sorry for the lack of posts here, between work and school haven't gotten out as much as I would have liked.
    Archery season closes down here in a couple weeks for the two shotgun seasons then reopens on December 17th
    My fall semester at school will be done and I can get out a little more. Hope to add to the team total during late season

    Well my season is pretty much over. Our gun season came in last week and 2 out of my 5 target bucks went down, one by me and the other by my uncle. The one my uncle shot was the biggest one I had on camera and scored roughly 110" at 3 1/2 years old which makes it the biggest buck killed on my grandpa's land. Which I know isn't much but when your neighbors motto is "if it's brown it's down" not many bucks make it past 2 1/2. I'm not sure where the other 3 bucks are but I haven't seen them on camera in almost 2 months. Our bow season ends December 31st, so if one of these bucks decides to show up I'll go after him as hard as I can. Good luck to everyone else.

    Here's my 8-point I shot last week

    I didn't get a picture of my uncle with his buck, but here's a trail cam pic of him

    Just a quick question fellas. So we can enter 1 buck & 1 doe in the contest is the way I understand it? I already have entered a buck but have another "any deer" tag. I would obviously shoot another buck but want to help the team as well. Think there's any chance Fitz would give 50 points for my second buck? I really don't want to shoot a doe just for the 50 points. 5 of my 6 shooters on my hitlist made it through the gun season so I'm hoping to arrow a bruiser!

    I'm not sure if Fitz would allow it but I definitely wouldn't judge you if you decided to use your tag on another buck. The way I see it, I wouldn't change the way I hunt for a contest. I've had several shot opportunities on small bucks that I considered shooting just to get us some points but I would've regretted it. In the end it all comes down to what YOU want to do. I know if I was in your situation and already had meat in the freezer I would be hunting for a big buck until the last couple of days or so then take a doe if neccessary. Whatever you decide, good luck!

    I think he said that he will not allow it this year and maybe he will next year. I would say arrow those bucks since we are pretty far from even winning 3rd place so i dont think it matters too much. Good luck with your hitlist bucks!
