    Yep, I got it. I don't think I know him. Did you guys ever do any hunting here, or just fishing?

    His last activity was at 8:30 yesterday morning, so I don't know what the deal is. Maybe he doesn't like being on a winning team :rock:

    Trimmed lanes today and checked on all my stands. Michael Pearce rolled with and there was a lot of sign throughout the property. Not sure 100% where I'll sit opening day but I have two spots with mock scrapes started now and hoping some bruisers are rolling through.

    Good stuff Jason! R U hunting in Kane county or are you hunting another area. Did you hang any cameras today? Glad to hear that you have some activity on the property.

    The property I hunt in IL is not looking too good over the past month, but that is fairly common during the summer pattern. Jason, the landowner for the property north of the raceway off of Rt 31 is waffling about having me hunt his estate so not sure if I will get to play with any of those "pet" deer or not this year!

    The WI properties I have not been out to since 8/6 and will not until 9/17 (opener). One (43 ac) was not looking too good with sign this year while the other one (220 ac mostly crops) has a bunch of deer in the 2.5 year old class and younger. Hope to take a doe on the second property and then wait for big ol' mossy horns to pass within bow range the remainder of the season wherever I am hunting.

    Iowa county between Highland and Avoca. It is extended family property. The larger portion is massively over-hunted yet produces deer every year. The smaller portion/property is only hunted by our group of 2-3 in which I am the only bow hunter. It is a great piece of land-locked property that does not "heat-up" until the crops are out. The nearest crops are about .5-.75 mile away. Not sure what is going on with this property this year though. Over 6 weeks I only had 3 diffferent deer on camera with the largest buck being a 1.5 year old 6-7 pointer. Last year during the same time period I was getting 800-900 pics per week with well over 12 different bucks with 2 pushing B&C and 3-4 P&Y. There has been a lot of poaching in the past so that might be the explanation. Oh well!!

    Tom,
    I'm just checking in with you and the team.... 27. I'm new at this , but I think I have a really good chance to help the team out. I'll be hunting in western Kansas for whitetail and mule deer. I plan on spending some serious time out there and I've got some great ideas how to bag a monster ... I'll do my best to stay in touch. It looks and sounds like a lot a fun!! Doug HIDE-A-BOW

    COLE, I live in Topeka, but love to hunt those mulies, I like to go out west and take advantage of some of that fine walk-in hunting in north-western part of the state. A lot of the walk-in changes year to year, so I like to drive tell I find something new. I do have some secrete hot spots though. I'm also the owner and inventor of Hideabow. I have a website so check it out..hideabow.com.....It really works good with the kind of hunting i do. Turkey, whitetail, mule deer, Pronghorn, and predators i'm on the move a lot and can set up anywhere in a flash.... play the wind and wait for the ambush got to go talk to you again Doug

    Welcome Doug. I have seen your product a few times this year. I can't remember if it was on hunting TV shows, Deer and Turkey Classic trade show or on this website. Anyways, good luck and check-in when you can with us! We appear to have a good group of hunters on this team!

    Welcome Doug.

    Team I want to run by you that when we shoot a deer if it is ok to post a pic on bow-deer.com?
    I own this domain and I figured we could have 1 central place with our team kills in case you
    wanted to show our winning deer.
