Fran-Awesome buck and great story...Congrats you deserve it.

Icame up witha score of144 5/8 for my buck with a busted G4 on the left side.

I thought I'd share a few pics from when I was in KS. The first isone of my stands that I have. I've killed 3 bucks out of this tree, including this years buck. It's in a perfect funnel but trees are at a premium around there so it may not look like much. It was extremely windy this year and this is 1 tree you don't want to be in when it's really windy, so I couldn't hunt it the first 5 days.



I also took a couple of trail cams with me and gotten alot of pictures. This one is one of my favorites. The rut seemed like it was going really strong starting about Nov. 5, which seemed a little early. We were seeing alot of buckssingled out with does but no real monsters. The buck I shot (Nov. 8) was with a doe and he was fighting off a couple of smaller bucks when she led him past me. But you can tell they were breeding by Nov. 9.

Hey, I reported in on a Veterans Day doe I killed. I've been in the stand one time since then, got skunked. My neighbor told me someone was shooting full-auto weapons last week between 9-10PM, sounded to him like they were in the woods where I hunt. I looked around there but didn't see anything that would prove that, but I didn't see a single deer, where I've been seeing 8-9 does and a spike roaming through consistently.

I'm taking Friday off and plan to hunt the morning on some public land near me. Therifle opener is saturday, but this area is archery only, so if it looks promising I'll seek refuge there when the pumpkins are out. It should be pretty good if it's the only place in the county firearms aren't going off. Dontcha think?

I'm hunting in West TN Thurs-Sunday Thanksgiving weekend, and should see some action there, the rut is imminent here in TN. I plan to be in the stand as much as possible.

Good luck Marty! Yeah, archery only area's can be a pretty sweet gig, if you can be lucky enough to be close to one....



We're doing VERY well so far, but there are still some pretty active teams out there. I think we would be in pretty good shape if we could even just get one more buck down.....

Not bow hunting but I was going through some of my pics and came up with a couple from Glacier. My daughter and I with a big horn.



The next 1 is me standing on an edge of a cliff looking out on a lake.

I noticed that the scorecard has been updated, and Team DH is putting the SMACKDOWN on it. There's still lots of time for others to catch up, but I have to say that our little group of killers (you know who you are ) has absolutely demoralized much of the pack and set Team DH up to be the Alpha dogs!

Great job guys! I'm trying my best. How humiliating would it be for the rest of the field if we come in over 1000 inches?
