    Good luck tomorrow holt. I’m hoping to get out Friday evening. Ran into a small 6 or 8 pt this afternoon while pulling cards. Looked like he was cruising for some ladies already. It’s getting close guys!!

    Good luck everybody. I'm gonna hit my primary huntin spot for the last time today. The area closes down Friday evening until dec 3d I think this year. So for the next couple weeks I'll be hunting some much smaller pieces of public, or be in nebraska chasing mule deer

    That is a great buck! Good luck!
    Well I gave it a go today. Made a mistake and tried to switch trees this morning and ended up spooking a deer, then got back out after a quick lunch and had 3 does at 0 yards. Hard to get a shot when they walk into sight at 15 yards, right under your tree and into thick stuff...

    That's it for my main hunting area until december because it closes down tomorrow night. Next week starts our blackpowder season, but I'll bowhunt through it this year, and I'll be taking a trip after some mule deer soon.
    Good luck everybody

    Well after many hours of looking we can’t find him. Lesson learned. NEVER SHOOT A DEER FACING YOU! I have learned a great lesson today and hope to never make that mistake ever again. I wish I would’ve waited for him to turn cause he was a stud!

    That’s a bummer peggman. Good lessons learned. Looks like muscle blood from what I see. My son learned the same lesson this year with his 357 cal rifle. Shot a big doe that was facing him. Think he might have hit her high in the neck. Had decent blood but it was all muscle blood. There is just not a lot of room for error when they are in that position. Hopefully your buck survives and you get another shot at him!

    I really hope so. I got this guy on camera and it was really cool to see him make a scrape right in front of me then walk in to 30 yards I’ll be checking my cameras tomorrow to see what it says. Hopefully something good

    Hey guys,
    Sorry I have been so absent. Between work, ball games and trying to get some hunting in Ive been swamped. I did kill a doe. I havent added her to the score card yet but I will try and get it done shortly. Hunting has been fairly slow here. We have had one encounter with a mature buck but was unable to close the deal . Good luck to everyone hunting. Should start to pick up.

    Hey guys! I've been out 3 times and seen a lot of smaller 1.5 & 2.5 year old bucks with lots of character but hoping they make it a couple more years. I have vacation starting Saturday and 9 days off. Fingers crossed to seal the deal. I have been on a little drought since 2014 so I'm hoping my luck changes this year!

    Good luck for those getting out. I’m going to try and make it out Friday after work. Taking my son goose hunting this Saturday. My work is sending me to training next week which is not very convenient but it is what it is

    Tomorrow brings our favorite time of the year! I’ll be going out after work, have seen many smaller bucks on the hood lately but no mature ones yet.. I’m going down to my cabin next weekend for the first hunts of the year there, hopefully I can smoke a brown goat

    Excited to get out Friday and try to connect with this guy. This was taking in the AM just after legal shooting time. Hopefully he’s moving Friday looking for some does.

    Nice! Good luck! It's alway good when you start getting a few in day light. I will be back to hunting the next 2 evenings and all day Saturday. It's looking like Saturday is going to be the day! Cold front, light rain in the morning, and the rut. It's going to be a good day!

    Sorry I haven’t been too active on here guys. I’m usually on here a lot more but just haven’t gotten to it as much this year. Looks like some people are having some luck. I killed a doe from the ground last night and I’ll get her added to the scorecard as soon as I can. Does anyone know how things look standings wise?
