    It was a whitetail. It was cool experience for sure. Really enjoyed the whole trip. Would have been nice to have killed a deer, but the experiences were worth the trip. Saw some cool country, caught and ate some wild brook trout, and was just nice to get out of state and do some hunting.

    It's great to see that you can see all positive aspects of the hunt, and not just the kill determines the whole outcome of the hunt. Sounds like a great trip. It sounds alot like my Colorado trip.

    Good luck today Andrew!

    So guys I was trying to add up our score and looks like when we get Clinton to submit his buck and doe we will setting pretty good in points. Looks like over 800. We are in the thick of it! Good luck to you guys, the next couple weeks can still be killer. Some really big slobs are killed this time of year, I see some huge bucks around thanksgiving time frame.

    Wow that’s a nice buck. Is his left eye all messed up or is it just the pic?

    Gun season starts the 15th here. I will be taking my son out a couple of times in November. Might get the bow back out in December. We will see how the rest of the season goes. Good luck guys!

    Got out this morning. Wind chill was 0 degrees. Managed to make it 4 hours before coming in to warm up and have breakfast. Didn’t see a deer. Heading back out now. Some how the wind chill dropped to 2 below now. Hoping my feet can last until dark

    Hey guys they updated the score card and we have 641 6/8. If Clinton puts his buck and doe on, we should be around 840. Looks like his buck is around 150 and 50 points for doe. That would put us in 2nd place.

    Keep up the good work guys! We are close!

    Was supposed to go hunting all weekend but the boss man wants me to work some OT.. I know it’s that time of year to be in the woods but with a short work week next week for the holiday I can’t pass it up.. bummer.

    Congrats Andrew on the big old girl!

    So who is still out hunting? We still got alot of contest left, soon will be the time to look for those late fawns that will be breed in December and late season food sources. I had a cool hunt last friday. Saw 2 small bucks a doe fawn. She's not hot yet, but hopefully in a couple weeks. One of the bucks is a deer I know well. He's a spike piebald. Almost completely white and most beautiful hide. I'm hoping he makes it a couple more years, but he is a big target. He stands out really bad in the woods and rifle season starts next week. I passed him alot last year as a button buck.
