    Heading out to do some coyote hunting this Saturday. Hoping to get a stand sit Sunday evening. I still have 7 doe tags left but will probably only fill 2 or 3 more. One of our properties needs a little balancing on the buck to doe ratio.

    Keep at it guys, we definitely still have a chance to win this! A couple does on the ground should get us back to the top.
    Good luck!!

    Here is a new pic of a buck I have pictures of for 3 years. He's a 4 yr old that I was hoping would make a jump in antler size this year. Maybe next... Good luck guys! Keep at it :)

    If we can get a couple does or a doe and a buck I think we have a good chance.

    Merry Christmas to you all!

    A lot of coyote hunting until March. We killed 13 last year on our lease. I still have doe tags left and plan on filling one more with my bow and one or two more with the smokepole next weekend.

    Any updates from those of you still out trying to fill some tags? Bitter cold here in Ohio with temps rising to 50's this weekend. Might try to head out Saturday for a doe. Heading out this afternoon to film for a buddy. He's got a decent 10 pt coming in to corn and is hoping he can send a crossbow bolt thru him. High is 8* today and it's the last day for our muzzleloader season.

    My season is done for the year. I was shut out the last week of the season because of all the snow and freezing temps up here. Do we still have guys out hunting?

    All we hear about in Illinois now is the doom and gloom of the Illinois deer herd which is depressing!

    It isn't a major topic of discussion here in ND but our herd is greatly diminished too. G&F is having special public input meetings on the deer management this year in addition to the overall management meetings. This season we had a lot fewer licenses and were only allowed one deer for gun and bow but bow licenses were still available over the counter. I am afraid they may put some tighter restrictions on the bow licenses soon and put us into a lottery system like the gun licenses. It amazes me what three years of tough winters can do to a deer herd. It affirms the need for a good management system, even if it hurts.

    Anyway, my season is over and I haven't been out due to the cold and snow. I am sorry I couldn't put one on the boards for us. Overall though, I think you guys have had a remarkable season. As far as I can tell team Silent Threat is #2 which ain't too shabby.

    I am guessing it is the old adage from Talladega Nights "If you ain't first, you're last" :)

    Been awhile since I checked in. My season ended last Saturday and unfortunately, no buck to show. Sorry couldn't help the team out anymore than I could.

    It was a great year though, funnest team I've been on since joining bowhunting.com. Hopefully I'll get some of you as teammates next year.

    Yeah I agree. Out of the three years that I have participated this was the best group that I've been on! And we got close to being number one!
