    Well guys I’m by myself so no good hero shots or anything like that, but he’s down! 11 pointer was running around in the food plot by himself and then came through the woods on the same path a doe and fawn had walked about 30 minutes earlier. Seemed like he was getting a bit antsy with the cooler weather. Either way I’m stoked as this was my first sit of the year. 6E68D5A5-1FC5-4D89-A32A-BDBB7441278D.jpeg F8F16AE8-626B-4BAA-808A-D6E625A78B5F.jpeg

    Looks great, congrats!

    Make sure you get a couple of selfies with the deer and your bow!

    Got a couple of better pics and the head is off for a euro mount. I hope everyone is having some sightings and having a good time out in the woods. I won’t be able to shoot another buck until rifle season but I may be out before then with the bow to try and get a doe down.

    53609D53-01E5-4E2F-91E9-C5C08D3D50A7.jpeg Hey Guys. checking in from MN! Second sit of the year only. Our snowstorm covered up my food plots so the deer are going to have to do some digging. Nothing big on camera yet but hope to tag a doe soon. Waiting for Mr. Big to show up!

    Amazing you are having snow and we are having unseasonably warm weather.

    Had two shooters in front of me yesterday morning and couldn't get to full draw. Worried that with gun season starting next Saturday my target bucks will be quickly gone in this heavily hunted area. If Monday or Tuesday aren't productive I'm thinking about bringing the xbow to the stand before the end of the week.

    I was extremely close to letting on fly last night on the ground without a blind. I had a change of plans after I hung my stand and didn’t like it so I went and sat on the ground. Left a little ground and scent and the old wise doe got a little wary. Went full draw when she was at 25 and then she spooked. Had 3 does and a stud 2.5 year old at 25 yards on the ground

    I had a similar thing happen on Saturday.

    Going out after this guy in the morning. The wind is perfect for the same stand where I shot my doe.

    Where he's standing in the photo is about a 15 yard shot.

    All day sit for me tomorrow. No school due to Election Day. Never thought I’d see that as a teacher. Works for me!

    Rut has been a new kind of slow. I think the deer are watching the election. At least where I'm hunting.

    It’s 70 degrees in northern IL today. Just leaving my classroom now I’m gonna run out to the edge of the corn field with my decoy and make some noise and see what happens

    Last day of bow only here is Texas. I stuck with the vertical bow and left the xbow at home. Seeing several new and interesting bucks showing up in a couple of my spots. Up a tree as I'm typing this as one of them has been showing up on camera here at about 4:30.
