    Haven't been on in awhile. Going crazy running kids to this and that!! I've been swamped. Hope to get out next week before the gun opener and then over thanksgiving week hitting it hard. Been working on getting a lease going on neighboring property. It's like a circus in there!!! Hope to put some points up soon. But I can't pass up these moments w the lil ones. They will only be little once!!! Good luck everyone!!!

    Alright guys, I finally put down a buck. I never thought it would take this long. He is a great big eight pointer. He scored 146 3/8. I am so pumped to have taken this buck, my biggest in a while. Check him out. I will go post some pictures so we can get some points!

    Thank you. That was an amazing hunt. I had to lean way off the stand while croutched down to get the shot. He passed through my last shooting lane when I saw him. I bleated to stop him that quickly swung around the tree. Moments later the dow spotted me a bumped up the ridge. He turned back and walked back down the trail into my lane. Glas that doe brought him back down the ridge at 32 yds. I made it count. What is funny is that I was on 48 hrs of no sleep before dropping the hammer, long road trip. We drove all night, got a flat tire, and caught up in a ton of traffic (burning van along the highway.) My buddy had several close calls over the last couple days while I tried to tag a coyote or doe. Neither happened but the time in the woods was perfect. Now I just have to put down a Michigan buck and doe with only a couple days left until gun season.

    Well haven't actually sat in a stand in almost a week and a half. Been helping an outfitter change some sets and hang some new one on some new property. Hoping to put a big one down before Friday as gun season will be here. Now that the outfitters guys have all finished up and left its my turn on some amazing ground!!! Hope the hard work the last couple weeks pays off!!! Heading out in an hour!!! Good luck to all!!!

    Was covered up in deer tonight even w a hard south wind and 75 degree temps. Bumped a real nice 10 on the way in. Let a smaller 10 walk by at 10 yards. Hoping I didn't screw up! Haha. And an absolute giant had a doe pinned down in the field for an hour al the way till dark. Going back to same stand in morning. I'm waiting for a chance at the biggun. Hope it's tomorrow morning!!!

    I put down a nice twelve pointer last night. Will try to score him when I get back in from hunting this morning. It feels nice to get some more points on the board!

    Hey guys...I havent checked in for awhile as I have been pretty busy. I guess I sold out but I took my #1 target last night with a rifle. You can see a pic of it in the water cooler thread on rifle kills if you are so inclined.

    I still have a couple of buck tags and plenty of doe tags so I am not done yet and still have plenty of season left so I should still get some points eventually.

    Congratulations to those that already have.

    Well I put down my final deer of the year this past Friday. I have had my best season ever here in Illinois. Managed to shoot a 12 pt, 10 pt and four does with my bow and then got another nice doe with my shotgun. I am hanging up the safety harness and switching over to my coon and coyote gear. Time to put some predators on the ground!

    I was thinking the same thing!!! I have been on a few sits but this past week I have been swamped w work and now I'm sick. Ugh. Anyway, I have a meeting w a landowner on Saturday. And I'm hoping to negotiate a lease for the rest of this year and lock it in for a few years. I know he might want more than I am willing to pay and have never paid before, but my kids are getting to the age they want to go with me and my beautiful supportive lady even got her listener this year and wants to hunt next. So to me I can't really put a price on this ground and I am having trouble deciding how much is too much!! Anyway Saturday is the magic day! Throw some prayers my way and wish me luck I could use it!!! I'm hoping I wasn't too picky in the bucks earlier on and didn't score some points for us. But there is still time and I will still be in the tree!! Good luck to anybody still hunting.

    Still hunting here in MI, put down a public land 10 pointer last night with the muzzleloader. Feels good to get a great buck in Dec.

    Congrats Brian!! I'm hoping to get out this week and get quite a few more sits in before our season ends in January. I'm hoping to get some new ground for next year. So working on that right now. Anybody else hunting still?

    I am done for the year. I filled my final tag and we've had some nice hunting weather in Illinois. I am trying to find the motivation to start going out after coons at night but so far I've been pretty content sitting on the couch relaxing
