Great job! We are catching up to the leaders now.

Congrat's BGHunter on a great buck. I take it he'll be at the taxidermist this week?

Awesome buck. I was just admiring the photo in the Contest page and didn't realize it was for our team. Woohooo.

Nice job.

Just got out Sunday afternoon. Had the big 2 1/2yr eight walk ten feet past my stand. Before he got to me I watched him make a couple of scrapes and a rub. Wish I would have gotten video of it. Hopefully he will make it until next year since he is already about 120+ as a 2 1/2yr. Plan on getting out every day this next week.

Thanks for the comments guys. Ya, I'm taking him to the taxidermist this week. My wife is not to happy about this however. I guess I'll be doing a lot of goose and duck hunting this year since my season has ended. I have a couple good firearm stands that have yet to be touched this year and we can only kill one buck per year here in IN. So, you should see all my friends trying to hint around about those "poor lonely stands". Keep at it and good luck.

I'm still hunting guys....it warmed up today, but supposed to cool back off by Wenesday/Thursday. I been hunting almost everyday but it's really slowed down here......seeing more does now then anything. Most of the small bucks have cleared out it seems. I'll still be out though this week and will update anything that happens.

Well, I talked to my buddy back in KS. last night. He finally got my trail cam put up for me. Says there is a bunch of deer sign on my property. My brother has cut the soybean, planted the winter wheat which is up and looking good already, and he is going to cut the milo between now and this weekend. SO, plenty of food source, and cover, to keep plenty of deer around. Also, my nephew did some road scouting last weekend, spotted a big buck on my place, so that is two different people who have reported seeing a big buck on my property. I'm leaving next Wednesday to drive back, then will be back for 10 days. I've got high hopes! Going to set up a double bull first thing off, going to try to video when I hunt it!
My buddy also told me that he saw a 150" last Sunday, on his property two miles from mine. No chasing that he saw, but lots of fresh scrapes and rubs! He is going to check my trail cam. this weekend for me. Can't wait to see those pics.!
Keep at it Highcountry. It's bound to happen if ya keep puttin' the time in!
Off topic. Hey BG, my family got 3 bulls and 2 cows during 2nd rifel season. Two guys didn't get thier cows. One bull is at the taxidermist! If you want to know more about unit 67, Email me!

Headed out last night on a hunch. Not long after I was in the stand, I had a buck working his way in. When I first saw him, all I could see was a deer limping pretty good. My first thought was the big nontypical that I videoed last year. He is missing the bottom half of his back leg. Well it turned out, it was the 7 point I had been seeing. Looks like he got beat up or something. Watching him limp, I decided I was going to shoot him if given the opporutunity. He never made it closer than 45 yards and just didn't come in. I'll be back at it for the next week and a half.
