The way I figure it, Racks' buck will put us in the neighborhood of 345 points, which is good for second place in the contest, about another 300 points or so behind the first place team. If every one with a tag puts down a 70-100 inch buck, we'll be in business, and then some. I think we're in real good shape, we just need to finish.

Did some quick math, and some rough checking. We have 6 guys left. We're 300+ behind. The leading team has 2 or 3 people left. If we score 70-100 each with our remaining people, we would probably easily take it if if the other team has their remaining people tag out.

I think this thing is really winable.

Either way, I'm having fun and I've met you great guys and really enjoyed all the great pics, so there's no losers in this deal.

Well, we're comin down to the wire here. I hunted a new piece of property today and saw one good buck and 17 does. The second rut is starting here, the buck I saw was around noon and he was just cruisin. It was pretty windy here today so I don't think he even heard my grunt call.

Don't really know how big the rack was, I just saw antlers shinin in the sun as he walked through the timber, but his body was absolutley huge. Had to go over 200 lbs. I plan on hunting there about 4 or 5 more days this season. We'll see. Keep on pluggin guys!

It almost happened tonight fellas. This was as close as I have EVER been to shooting a buck with my bow. About 3 this afternoon, and nice 8 point milled out of the bedding area and down the point in my direction. The trail he was on was going to offer me a 7 yard shot. All of a sudden, he froze and looked left. Hmmmm.....I say.....perhaps a larger buck?? Now, this entire time he all of 40 yards away, just out of bow range. After about 10 minutes I saw them. A herd of 6 does came tearing through the woods and sent him back up the hill. I have never been so disheartened in all my life. He would have scored perhaps 110. Not huge, but a keeper this late in the year. The good news here...I saw 2 other bucks and 12 more does this evening. Even better news, I still have 6 days to hunt this spot. It could happen yet!!

Well...it's over. Season closed today. I want to say, though, that it has been fun. I had a great time with our team here, and I am glad to get to know you all. As usual, my season didn't end up like I envisioned it, but it was great anyway.
Just think, before long we'll be signing up again, and the smack will return once more!! I hope to share a spot on another team with ya'll again in the future!
