    Hi all! I'm Tara and this is my second season bowhunting. I'll be spending time in Northern IL for the majority of the season. My goal is to bring home my first deer, to get that buck on the wall. Looking forward to hearing all of your success stories!
    Good luck Team 18!

    Good luck Steve! Can't wait to hear all about it. Curious where in MN - i was born & raised there, family has a place near Deerwood. Even further north of that is just gorgeous land. Enjoy and be safe!

    DEERSLAYER checking in. I'm not ready yet, but I'll get it together. It should be a good year.
    Tara, I think you have a really good chance of getting that buck this year! It's hard to beat Illinois. Glad to have you on board!

    Nothing for me but one of the guys In our 4 man party got a 190lb dressed bear. On the way up I drive just west of Deerwood Tara on hwy 6. I hunt north of Deer River about 45 miles.

    This picture's didn't turn out very well but the 2 here turned out alright and was about the best ones In the 20 or so I took. It was raining and windy when I took these pics. My camera didn't work for some reason where the bear died but worked after we got It back to camp. That's where I took this pic. The little guy In this picture Is my nephew Beau with his dad (my brother) Jason. It was Beau's 1st time ever seeing a bear In the wild, he's almost 3 years old. The guy In camo Is Larry who's been a long time friend of the family and great hunting buddy!! He's the wounded hunter who got this bear. He shot this bear with his recurve with 3 broken ribs that he broke at work 2 weeks back. The bear dressed out at 190lbs. He's full of fat too. The bear are In very good shape this year In northern Minnesota.
