One of these days I want to hunt a state like Iowa, Illinois, etc. That's on my "list". Also high on that list is taking a bear and elk with a bow.

I'm like Millertime, stuck on work. Sorry I haven't been on here more. Congrats alwyshntn!!!! A 130 class buck! Great! I too am getting ready for the first of Oct. Probably get a doe first, but if a buck walks in front of me it's on! I was practicing with my bow last Saturday and I'm good out to 40 yards. Most of my stands are for shots less than 30. Bad news is it sounds like we're going to be working some overtime at work next month. May not get to hunt as much as I wanted. Good thing my hunting spot is right behind my house.

Man, what a week. I've gone from a fire in the hotel i was staying in on saturday at 4amto baseball sized hail (yes, i said baseball) screaming at my house thanks to 75mph winds.

My siding is just shredded and I spent two hours shop vac'ing glass out of my GRASS! At least I still have a roof over my head, my next door neighbor cannot say the same.

Now, if that wasn't enough to keep me out of the woods, I'll probably put in 60+ hours this week.

ARGH! I need to be in a tree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!

I've been out 5 times. all i've seen is a doe and fawn. my buddy saw 5 tonight on the land i hunt, so that is promising. man, the turkeys were out tonight though. never seen anything like it. we probably saw 80 between the two of us.

Hey guys...

this is going to be the longest week of the year for you whose season starts on saturday

I went out with my old man friday and saturday (cant hunt on sundays); after 2 weeks of trying my luck at college I had enough and decided to go home for the weekend. That was the trick as it only took about an hour to see deer. My dad had 2 doe within range, but there was too much crap (saplings) in the way to shoot. After the morning sit we met back up in the pole line and hashed over the morning...I happened to notice 3 deer crossing the pole line only 150 yards up...tried to put the stalk on em' but it didnt work out. Tried another spot in the afternoon, on the walk in happened to see a nice doe feeding off the side of the trail, I was ready to go, the old man wasnt, I shot, he didnt, I judged her at 30+, she was really 35+, needless to say I hit low. I gave her some time then followed up on the blood trail, it took me right under some guy in a stand...he had seen it and shot it too (Greeaaat) [:@] So we commenced to following blood, it was a really weak trail as we both failed to hit our marks...we ended up leaving it for the night and trying again on sunday...no luck

what a crappy feeling...although I really dont think she is going to/did die from the wounds.

On any note my season is starting to look better and we are starting to get some nice cool weather (60's for highs)
