    I'll shoot a doe if I get a chance... so there's 50 points.
    The deer on the main farm I hunt are not real large. 100-110" is big. IF I go to the Amish farm in Cayuga County, then the prospects go up big time and a 130-140" buck could go down. I also have an opportunity to hunt in MD on my Amish buddy's farm... again - 130" possibilities. Now all I gotta do is get one within 30 yards!

    hopefully at least 50 for a doe. As far as a buck goes no telling, I might have to use the ferg clause.

    I don't expect to get any big boys on camera until our mock scrapes are established and the pre-rut picks up. Here is the deer I am chasing from last year if he's still alive. He showed up at the end of October and hung around for a week or two during the very beginning of rut and then left. We never saw him on the hoof, just trail cam pictures.

    Turkey, that 10 looks long and slender like a 3 year old. Maybe its just his stride, but thats an awesome buck for sure.

    Im good for at least a 100. So far have not seen any bucks that look older than 2. I'll hold out as long as I can on a decent buck. Good news is I think I have the No Cam tuned. This is a Slick Trick and a field point. Popped that bull dog collar like it was cool!! More luck I think but shots have have them grouping close at 40.

    The "little guy" I took last year off of public land. I wish he wasn't missing his G2 on one side

    Great looking buck! That's a great buck for private or public :tu: I have thousands of acres of public hunting around my areas, but since having private land to hunt I've never given it a try.

    Are any of you guys trying anything new or different from the years past? Anything from new stand locations on a well known property or scent killer spray or are you sticking to the same tried and true strategies of years past?

    The only thing new for me this year is that I am putting up another stand. It's only about 20-25 yards from my current hot spot but this new spot is a pinch point where 3 different trails meet up. I always see a bunch of deer over in the area but there's just too much brush between my current spot and the new spot so it's time I move closer.

    I'm going to see about borrowing my nephew's Ghost Blind. I think I could have good luck with it at the edge of the corn field I hunt. Hopefully he'll let me borrow it again (he did during spring turkey season).

    Smoke is a natural smell especially if people burn wood in your area for warmth. Not a bad idea.

    I'm looking into a hunt club about an hour from where I live. Supposedly they have 1800 acres in one tract and only 5 bowhunters. Bow season is Sept 12 till Oct 30th. But with it being so late I might commit this year and then hunt it serious next.
