    I have been shooting since May I was dealing with target panic at first so I wanted to beat it and I can confidently say now that I have!!

    I am 29.5 DL and 67lb I haven't decided on arrows yet. I think I might be switching to fixed and going for high kinetics . I don't shoot over 30 yards so speed isn't a factor. I shoot a Heli so I'm relatively close to 300fps.
    I'm leaning FMJ or CE 250 spine with brass and counters. Not crazy weight but solid.

    I had two of my Coverts this year have some issues with false triggers and every 1/3 picture show up grey. I haven’t done a ton of research on a solution yet

    Love all these new pups on the team! They really do just make life so much better.
    Here’s a few updated pictures in what I have been into.

    Those are some great photos!! I had an interesting day on the farm today! I got a call from the owner saying there was a deer or two stuck inside the fence of the orchard and my coworker and I had to help try and get them out. Little did I know one of the deer was a big 10 pointer that I had pictures of last year! we tried for an hour but couldn't get him out, as far as I know he is still in there. The owner said he was going to do his best but if the deer got himself to stressed out or caught up in the fence he'd put a bullet in him. I asked if he did to let me know so I could get a better look at him but I hope that doesn't happen! He did bust up his face and some of his velvet against the fence already so we'll see!

    Great news the owner got the buck out of the orchard, even better news he said there was an even bigger buck running with him! I am hopeful I get a picture of him to know what he is!!

    One of my property owners at work had this guy sitting out by the barn. I taped him at roughly 167". Crazy huge!

    We're headed to Ocean City, MD for a little vaca. I didn't realize Maryland had nice bucks, but we have seen a handful of 120-130s out in the fields. Wonder what a non-res license costs...

    Well boys a got a hard pass buck for this year. I have pics of him every pull but now I'm getting him in daylight. I think he is a 110 2.5 yr old and from the same stock as young bull ... Sharing his family trait of being wide as balls.
    What does everyone think on age? IMG_20190728_130949944.jpeg

    For those that don't get the ref.

    Got a few cameras put up yesterday and cut some clearing around my climbing sticks. Acorns on the ground around one of my stands.
    I assume we will just be placed as team 27 for this years contest. Nothing we need to do for sign ups, right?
