    I've got a couple of dandies showing up in MA... huge 10 and huge 8.. They'd be dead now if we could hunt at a normal time like most states.... ugh...
    Had success this past weekend w/ my 12 year old daughter on the MA youth hunt. She took her first buck. She shot it with a TC Pro Hunter .50...

    Way to go on that Buck bud he's a beaut! That's making me excited to get back out there at the end of this week. It's been a very slow start for me but more and more sign has been popping up every time out so it's just a matter of time...just wish I had more time to get out there...

    Great day today... even though I let them walk! Right at first light once settled in the stand I grunted a few times...had a basket 8 come in from The west and a small six come in from the east. The small six came in all poofed up and ears down and they started fighting/sparring right in front of me! Had the same two this even come in and do the same thing but they were out about 60-70yards! Cool to watch

    Got my first deer on Saturday! Big 127 lb dressed doe at 15 yds double lunged! Only went 35 yds and toppled over! Such an amazing feeling! Had 2 bucks come by earlier one was massive but didn't present a shot and the other was a very solid 8pt but I got mixed up looking through my peep at where he was and thought I had a second shooting lane coming up but he was past where I thought he was, stopped him with a grunt twice but it wasn't a clear shot so feeling pretty down and hoping one of them would come back by I sat it out waiting and sure enough 3 nice does came down out of the woods, I took her in the same spot I Hesitated on the buck earlier so I got my redemption! I know with the bucks cruising it was not optimal time to take a doe but having never gotten a deer I was sticking to the mantra of if it's brown its down!
    Can't get back out until next Monday (my cousin thought November 11th was a good time for a wedding) but I'm hoping to connect with one of those bucks I saw that day! Happy hunting good luck out there guys!

    Looking to try my luck in MA next fall. Any recommendations of which zones/regions have good chances for a rut hunt in 2017?
    Any help much appreciated.

    Seems like a ton of nice bucks were taken in zone 11... as compared to most other zones.. with zone 10 close behind from my observations. Some nice bucks taken out here in Western MA / Berkshire County as well... but not like the Eastern part of the state
