    If my little can get out in the next day or two I’ll be able to hunt this weekend. I haven’t shot a deer in almost a month now. I’m getting itchy.

    Since I’m watching kids again today we’re making our first batch of jerkey. Son and I checked our property trail camera and captured this guy

    That's a heck of a buck! A few more like that and our doe's and this team is right back in the mix.

    Congrats on the success team! I hunted 3 days last week Fri/Sat/Sun. All day sit Friday was slower than expected despite seeing 5 bucks. Saturday I saw 4 bucks in a.m. before moving properties to sit rest of the day. Sunday was met with a day of snow/rain so Is at a few morning hours before calling it a day. I will be out again Fri/Sat/Sun again for last 3 days before WI gun season kicks off. Any late season hunting would be based off of what trail camera's are showing. Best of luck to all with rest of season.

    Good luck to everyone getting out there and congrats Sooner that was a hell of a deer! I am on vacation (going out of town with the girlfriend) from Sunday to Sunday but have 4 days straight to hunt when I get home.

    Also a quick update, I sat out at the stand I had posted pictures of by that rock wall. Saw a doe get pushed by a buck (didnt look too big, but still really cool to see) about 25yds to my right me around 4pm yesterday. There are some scrub pines and I dont think they ever saw me stand up but they were quartering to me and in those little pines so I never even drew the bow. They moved off toward the logging road I walk in on toward where the truck was parked and if I had to guess they must have crossed the powerlines that are about 50 yards parallel to that logging road and went onto the next property

    Heading out in a few minutes for a long afternoon sits. I’ve suddenly got multiple shooters showing up on my Lease. It’s about to be that time. Hopefully this guy strolls by.

    Not a monster or my biggest but damn proud of him and wasn’t gonna eat a tag like last year when I chased a ghost. He’s guessed to be 41/2-51/2 and on the decline. All I care about is maturity.
