Way to go TH, another nice one.
Been very cold lately. I went out last Sat and saw nothing but doe. Only a month left in the season for me, I won't make it out this weekend but have plans to head out right after Christmas with my brother to do some doe management. It's bad when you see 20 doe and no buck in one morning

Walking in on the logging road, not 75 yards from my truck, I spot movement coming up from the gully headed to the thicket, saw antlers, stopped him, shot...dead 7 point at 35 yards. From first sight to shot was maybe 10 seconds! Had my tree stand on my back and it was only 1:00 in the afternoon. I know, I know...should have had my bow! I did go to another spot and brought my bow that time. Had a spooked big racked boy come bounding by, but couldn't stop him. Season ends in a couple weeks here, but I'm off the last week and will be in the woods WITH MY BOW!!

Hey guys, been awhile since i have posted, obviously I have had no luck I have been out nearly every day, whether it be day or night. Just wanted you guys to know I havent given up because I realize I cant kill anything unless Im in the woods. Seen a couple of Does, to dark to put the pin on them but would have if I had better light as I have not filled any tags this year. Season ends for me on the 9th and I will keep trying!

Nothing for me this year... That makes the 1st year in a long long time that I didn't even take a doe with my bow - things just didn't work out... Always next year I guess :-) I did have a shooter about 5 yards from my blind - unfortunately he walked straight at me until he spooked out (at the 5 yards), then had the same buck run past my blind (about 10 yards that time) from the behind and didn't have a shot - guess that's hunting...

Our team was pretty active so I enjoyed that piece - was great to get to know everyone a little better!

Not sure what I all have on the plate for next year... Wife and I are expecting in APR and then we are closing on a new house soon too - so it's been a pretty busy last couple of months! Hopefully I'll have a chance for speed goats - hard to believe that's only about 6MO out! Probably do a lot more in-state stuff next year with the exception of an IA tag (that's probably about the only one I'll pursue) - really hope I can draw next year, can't wait to get back!
