    Went and checked my public cams yesterday and this is more like it! Got two nicer bucks, the first one being a really nice buck. 08200105.JPG 08200106.JPG


    Here are two more pics of him 08200178.JPG 08200181.JPG

    His face looks like someone smashed him in the head with a frying pan, but I'll take it haha!

    He was traveling with this smaller buck, I wouldn't hesitate taking this one either.

    They only traveled by my cams once, August 20th. But hopefully they will be sticking around. I have doe pictures daily, so even if they don't claim this specific spot as their territory, once November rolls around I will hopefully get a crack at one.

    Great looking deer guys, We pulled a few more cams as well a couple more decent deer have showed up:
    Sinclair showed up, although the picture isnt the best:
    STC_0391.jpeg

    If there is one deer I want more than ever its this deer. He's at least 6 if not 7 yrs old. I had him two years ago at 50 yds but camera light was to marginal. 90% of the pictures we get are at night. He beds off our property I think so he's going to be a tough one to kill.

    Got out a couple of times over the weekend but didn't see anything. Did a bit of scouting and found some old rubs. Hope to check this area around the rut to see if they get opened up

    Hey there fellas, it's your alternate checking in. I'm in Carroll County, Northwest Illinois, we grow em big up here and I'm hoping to contribute in any way that I can. I haven't killed a wall hanger in two years so I'm due to find another 180" deer this year!
