    Merry Christmas guys. Its been a weird hunting year for me but I have still enjoyed it. Im not done although im nearing the end of my rope. Ill still probably get a doe down. Havent seen a big enough buck i want to shoot at the properties im going to hunt but who knows. The only 3yo that has a nice rack is only sporting one side already.

    Happy New Years! Jan 1 was the last day of the season for me. Freezing rain so I didn’t get out. I’ll be watching from the side lines.

    Finally got my buck entered. Will be going out for a doe in the next few weeks to cap the season off.

    Well My season is over, today is the last day of our season here in Georgia, I Had a great season and really enjoyed My time in the woods. I missed half of last season due to My battle with prostrate cancer and wasnt sure Id even make it to another season. So it made this season all the more special and I made it a point to take in mother nature in her finest on every venture into the woods. Some of the highlights of the season were , My first buck on My own land, Taking a doe with the new crossbow, and My rut trip to NW Missouri outfitters { although unsuccessful it was a blast!!!}
    Now it's time to start planning and working towards next season. Good luck to yall that have some hunts left this season and looking forward to next fall :deer::deer::deer::deer::deer::bhod:

    I had a sub-par season. I still have one weekend left so theres hope! Haha. Dropping my bow from tree and whiffing on a couple deer which messed with my mind, seemed to send me in a downward spiral. I had a few great encounters but couldnt seal the deal. This will be first year in awhile i didnt spill blood with the bow. But like i said i still have a Hail Mary left next weekend. Glad to share the season with you guys even thou we werent too active on here. Good luck to all of you in everything you all do whether its hunting, fishing, work, family, health related. Cheers!

    I don’t even have a bow anymore! New one is on the way, well, new to me. Sold my Halon 32 and bought an Xpedition MX-16. Never shot an Xpedition so it could be a dumb decision. It’s time to start scouting for next year now.

    Well thats it. Illinois bow season is over. Sorry i couldnt contribute this year. Wasnt my season thats for sure. I thought id be able to kill for sure over our plots. I put some kids on deer and that mist have been enough ruckus to spook them out of there. Not alot of fresh sign and i didnt see squat this weekend. Well good luck to all of you in the off season!
