Great job! It feels good to be on the board...not official yet but it feels good.

I went back to Ohio Thursday evening hunted 8hrs friday, 8hrs saturday, and 4hrs this morning...nothing but squirrels, chipmunks, and fairy diddles. Well, I saw one Coyote on Friday morning, but as he was coming down the hill infront of me I got busted taking the bow off the ezhanger. Don't know what happened....we was seeing the deer in the fields at night, but nothing going on durning the mornings or evenings. I guess this weekend I'll be squirrel hunting with the wife, and then hunting WV next Saturday.

Awesome, zs93, congrats on the deer. That reminds me, I need to ask for permission to hunt my old honey hole on Thursday. Can wait to see the picks.

Congrats ZS!! Can't wait to see the pics. Got out Saturday morn. Was 32 degrees but was very comfortable on the stand. The corn and beans are still in here and I did not see a thing. My next outing won't be for a couple of weeks and hopefully most of the picking will be done.

I haven't heard much of anything...the thread has slowly crawled to a stop. I certainly hope everyone is out enjoying the great outdoors. I know Friday I have to do some scouting, then squirrel hunting Saturday and Sunday. From there I got 4 days of work....Friday the 17th I'll probaly be double checking my gear and out in the deer woods on Saturday the 18th.

OK guys I finally got the pics and antlers back to be scored. I posted them in the official standings board. Now to the story........
I planned all week to take my 6 year old son out with me hunting on Saturday nite. Of course whenI told him on like Tuesday he was excited all week. After picking pumpkins with the family on Saturday me and him were able to sneak out and put a couple hours in. It was his first time actually hunting seriously with me. I have a double bull dark horse blind set up on the edge of a soybean field which is still green so I figured why not go there. After about 20 minutes we had some turkeys come out about 20 yards in front of the blind and he was telling me to shoot them, I told him no we are deer hunting. After about an hour he tells me "I told you, you should have shot one of those turkeys now were not going to see anything". Another half hour passes and the first deer comes out, a doe about 70 yards and then another doe. After about 10 more minutes a little six point followed by a fork horn come out at about 20 yards. Five minutes after those two comes this ten point, first instinct told me not to shoot but my son really wanted me to shoot as you can imagine. So I watched him and then made my decision to shoot him. I hit him a little back as he was quartering away a little. No more did the deer run off and my son was ready to go after him, like now. Of course, we we made the decision to wait a few hours. We went to my brothers and waited, then we packed up my nephew and son and went to look for him. After about 75 yards we found him piled up.

Here is a pic of me and my son shortly after I cleaned him out. It was about 11pm so my son was a little tired after all the excitement. I was hoping to get a little bigger one for us but the time I got to spend with my son was priceless.

I plan on still hunting so I will keep you guys in the loop on my adventures. Good Luck to the rest of you guys, I got my 100+ points now 9 more guys and we win.....
