    Guys I had a great encounter t.his morning with 2 4 yr old deer. They were on a trail 60 yards from the stand. First one was a 140 9 point I got lots of pics of . The second one was 150 inch 11 point I haven't seen before. Both on a mission and had their heads down. Tried to grunt and rattle a little. No effect on the first one but the second paused for a moment. I had a couple of does go thru 1 hour before on that same trail.definitely getting some more daytime movement on the bucks the last few days. Good luck guys.

    Currently in the middle of my last night shift for the week. Then I'm off for 19 days yeah buddy!!! I'm hitting the woods hard everday until i kill! Got a buddy coming down November 6-16 hunting with me. Hopefully we'll both tag a couple studs. Be looking out for the BBD text message in the days to come y'all. Good luck to everyone!

    Grahambo that sounds awesome! What state are you in? I'm ready for that action to hit Kansas I don't think it's far away. Great luck putting a tag on one if those bucks you're chasing.

    Good luck guys. Im planning an all day sit saturday. The wind is suppose to be good all day in the area i want to get into. Hopefully i see a buck within shooting range because he is getting a arrow! But we will see how it goes.

    Oly good luck man.. things have been moving last couple mornings for me.
    Jeff, im hunting in Illinois not from the indiana line. Had high 130- low 140 come close today. Mature deer but didn't give me a shot. That's 3 great deer in 2 morning sits with zero shot opportunities. Momma does are getting rid of their button bucks last night as well. Good luck and knock one of those Kansas legends down!!

    Not a problem. Edgar county with my 2 great friends golden rectangle and englum_06. Doesn't look like you are too far away.

    Just a quick post to let you guys know that I put a nice one down. Long but good story to follow. I have not measured him yet but he should easily make the mid 160's. I still have another buck tag and trapping season opens tomorrow so it may be a while before I can get a chance to post up pics and the story but wanted everyone on the team to know first. Good luck to all.
