The Mrs and myself where on a hunting honeymoon at coopers creek outfitters. It was a ruff week in Illinois we had wind all week 15-40 mph at any given time. The deer activity was at a minimum to say the least. Iwas on stand for 5 days sun up till down (long windy days). On the last day at 148 a buck came from behind me at 60 yrds right into my wind. he never came close enough, later that afternoon at 3pm he showed back up with a doe even further away EEEERRRHHHhh! Then at 343 pm I heara rustling in the timber up over the ridge comes this 8 pt with the doe following him. Hummm who wears the pants there. I really was laxed because I had turkey all day long make the same racket. The deer where headed out to a cut corn field I was set up off of. The deer walked a straight line at 31 yards but stopped to stare at me. I hit everything in my treestand that would make a noise the bow hanger the stand my range finder. The bottom line was broad side shot at 31 yards. the deer made a 300 yard NASCAR circle and died 50 yards from the stand. It was a long slow search the shot was further back then I would have liked (I hit a twig that I didnt see) we had good blood in the begining but it vanished after 75 yards. It wasnt the biggest deer but the activity was slow and we need points on the board.

Congrats on the buck. We need to get these last 2 bucks scored and get some more points on the board.

Hey everyone

Sorry it took so long. I went back to my dad's this last weekend. I stopped at the taxidermist and we got him measured. It scored more than we both thought 144/58 I have him on the board so it should be offical soon. I also went hunting this last weekend. I got to see the pig again he ran passed my stand at about 45 yards. He is a true monster should score around 160 to 170. I shot a doe on Sunday morning. It has been an amazing year. The next and most likely that last hunt for me will be the second weekend of Dec.(muzzleloader)

PA archery is done now until after Christmas. Our 2 week rifle season starts the Monday after Thanksgiving and you could hunt with a bow.

My season ended on October 31st
