    I love the Rage 2 Blade broadheads. I've been using the Rage Xtreme's for at least 4 years. Sure makes it easy following a blood trail.

    I'm headed to our Farms in Ohio this afternoon. I need to do some mowing of my food plots and them spread some turnip and radish seeds for late season food source. Glad to see these lower temperatures. I'm anxious to pull the trail cam cards to see if anything new showed up.

    I've been using the rage hypodermic since they came out. And the original rage before that. They're a great broadhead!

    I’m going to go scouting this morning, mainly to see if there is any sign of human activity in some of the areas I frequent in the woods. It’s a nice and cool 51 degrees this morning!

    Hopefully you don't find any human sign or very little if any

    So, I'm a big fan of scents and calls when I hunt. I bought this several days ago, got it in the mail yesterday.

    It apparently has deer testicles ground up in to a paste. As pleasant as that sounds, its the closest thing I've smelled to a stinky, rutted up old buck. I'm hoping for some success with it this year, but I'll try to get the daughter to put the scent on the wicks. This stuff stinks LOL

    Now doesn't that just make you want to save that sack when you get a buck this year, throw it in the Freezer until next year and then make your own Nutter Butter. I could just see the look on my wife's face when she found the sack in the freezer.:lmao2:

    Great to be in the woods again this morning. I didn't see anything that jumped out and said, "OMG I have to hunt here!" but then again, I never do in these woods. I swear there are only 12 doe who live on the 10,000 acres and are gypsies, traveling through sections every 3-5 days. I was mainly looking for doe sign. Saw a few areas that seemed like good travel corridors that I've had some success with in the past. I rarely scout during the offseason just because the intel I find, I know about and I'm no Dan Infalt trying to hunt buck bedding. I'm about as smooth as a chainsaw!

    I do my scouting during the season, with up to date info. I also don't run trail cameras anymore. I have in the past and there are absolute giants in there. There were loads of acorns on the ground, but the white oaks had zero acorns on the branches again for the 4th season.

    I won't be going super deep after the big boys until the weather cools down. The terrain is insane, and getting a deer out is going to be a 8-10 process, no exaggeration. That is even having my 21 year old son and his friends coming to help drag with my Hawk Crawler.
