Another vote for BowBums. As for scouting, I've got my camera out and plan on checking it this weekend. Hopefully I'll have some pics to post.

Well guys I nearly had a horrible occurence this past weekend. I had recently gotten the serving on my buss cable restrung when I noticed it had come loose. I also had gotten some new silencers put on, so when I came home, I wanted to give them a try.
I fired six shots out of the bow and was impressed by how much quieter it was. But after the seventh shot, I looked down to check the cerving around the cable.
I couldn't believe it. Two threads from the cable had broken. I feel pretty lucky that I noticed it when I did and it didn't snap on me. That could have been catastrophic.
I took it back it the next day to have a new buss cable put on it. I should be getting a call this weekend or early next week to go pick it up. I guess i'm also lucky that this didn't happen the day before the opener.

Bob, those are some nice bucks! I would assume those are from illinois? I know PA has some big deer, but that one in the first picture is monstrous!

Yep! Those are all Illinois. Actually they're all the same trailcam!

That sparse vegetation around them was a soybean plot!

(We replanted in mid August)

I haven't been able to do much as far as scouting is concerned either. I hunt just outside the city of Winnipeg and share the land with a friend. He has gone out and sat in the evenings a few times and seen some nice deer. Including 2 that will go over 150. I'm excited to say the least. Crops are good for my location this yr too. I have beans in the land I'm on and corn in the field across from me. Another spot I go has wheat so it will be an early season spot.
Opening day for me is this coming monday..... BUT I won't be able to go out. I'm in moving phase right now. I'll try and get out whenI can but won't make anyt promises. I have the first week of november off to sit in stand during the pre rut so will put alot of stock in that.

So is Bob our Capt? Are we all checked in? Going out to my lease this weekend to put up a couple of stands. Looking forward to it.

All checked in except for Yatesm. I PM'ed him but he hasn't responded yet. Rob will be assigning alternates in about a week as soon as he returns from a pronghorn hunt. Hopefully Yatesm will check in but if not, we'll pick up another member from the alternates.

Yep, I believe Bob should be our captain. Bob if you would like go ahead and let the authorities know.

I finally made it out to place a few trailcams yesterday. I will keep you guys posted of any bruisers I may catch on film. Talk at you soon. Here are a few that I hope are still around from last year.
