We have had an excellent year as far as moisture goes. We had a great winter and now a great spring and a good start to summer. We have received 7" of rain the last week.

John, congrats on the new bow. That buck looks like hes gonna be a good one!!

Yes, i am fortunate to have a flexible job and a lot of vacation and comp time. I usually take april and november off each year for hunting. Last year i got a little antsy and killed my buck before the vacation started. My minimum standards have gone upsince last yearthough. This year its >125 or nothing.

Well, maybe come the late season you can reduce your minimums a little to put some digits on the scoreboard

We have had a crappy spring. It hasn't rained here in over 2 weeks and the crops are looking pretty bad. If it doesn't rain in the next week I think the farmerswill betotally hosed.

Hey all, checking in. Well to say the least, I have been very busy. Between one son playing soccer and another son playing baseball in which I was coaching I haven't been able to do much shooting. Since soccer is over and baseball is near the end, I should be able to get more time to get my confidence built up to take longer shots this year. Last year I had to let two good bucks go due to them being over what I was comfortable with. I just started a new job so my time off isn't what it used to be. I will still be hunting on the Army Depot that I was on last year, so I can't do any scouting anyway. A good thing is that the area that I hunt hardly sees any pressure at all.

The more I think about it.......

You assemble 10 guys at random......and they put (on average) 80" of bone, per man, on the ground. I'm still amazed at what you guys did.

I promise I will bring my score up this year. We will be at least 90" average but I was thinking more along the lines of 110".
