Good luck on your next meeting with him Michael!!!!

I had a relatively quiet opener In Illinois. Managed to put a small doe in the cooler but the deer were not moving all that well. I'm back in PA and hope to get out this afternoon.......

Good luck guys!!!!

Well, an update on my first week of the season. I've seen deer every time I've been out, but mostly does. I have been tempted to shoot one, but I just keep thinking that the one I shoot might just be the one that brings a shooter buck by my stand later in the season. I think I'll just wait till after the rut to put my tag on a doe. Other than the does and yearlings that I've been seeing, I've seen a yearling 5 point that will be a monster some day if he makes it through. He's got very large forks and only one brow tine but he show real potential. I've got my camera out in a different area than I've been hunting and I think it's in a great spot. I plan on checking it either this evening or Saturday morning after my morning hunt to see if I've got any shooters moving in that area. I feel really good about my stand locations and I'm starting to see rubs on my way to and from my stand so I'm sure there's much more out there I'm just not going to go trapesing around looking for it. Anyway, I'll be out this weekend and I'll post another update when I get back to the office on monday. Good luck to everyone.

Go get em!

Today would have been a super day in PA but we spent it working on my youngest son's eagle scout service project. I dont say this often but that was a bit more important today. The good news is that we got 90% of it finished and I'll be in my tree Monday (God and weather permitting)

Congrats on a truly awesome lifetime acheivement! There'll be other evenings to hunt but only one Eagle scout ceremony. Good to have an Eagle on our team!

His project was a the rebuilding of an outdoor stairway in a local park that led to the tennis and handball courts and the hockey field. The old one was in such bad shape that folks had to walk a considerable distance around to use that part of the park. He did a very nice job from beginning to end and I'm very proud of him. All that stands between him and his Eagle now is the usual paperwork

Congrats to your son! On the hunting front, probably won't get down to my best spot again until the start of the rut. Will be out at another location the next few weekends. Saw a decent buck there on Saturday eve. Good luck and keep hunting!

I`ll be heading out tonight... -3 and light snow. Can`t wait! I`m also taking a friends nephew who is 12 so he will be close to me, not sure what if any chances I will have tonight. Should be good for sightings though.

Headed out in just a few minutes. Tonight is primarily a doe hunt at a stand erected for that purpose behind my fathers house. Have to go that way anyway so I'll slip in for the last few hours and hopefully pick up a fresh set of backstraps!
