Hey guys-
Sorry for the lateness. Thought I would check in and see how everyone is doing...i've been doing tons of the trail cam thing and doing a little scouting when possible. I have 3 deer I'll be targeting. I'll see if I can post up a pic of Hitlister numero Uno.

Hope all are as excited as I am

The Lethal Force is a super sweet bow & I found myself only shooting that and not shooting my Invasion, so I sold the 2nd invasion. So yeah, I'm junkie. But it will take a lot for me to get rid of my Lethal Force. It is fast, forgiving, dead in hands, zero shock, balances well, and is a shooter. Obsession is a young company, but they contract their engineering work to Kevin Strothers. There are mixed reviews on Kevin Strothers, I don't read into them too much, because one thing that can't be denied is they guy can design sweet bows. Just look at what he did with Bowtech, Elite, and Strothers. Other than that, not too much else new this year.

I gave in and bought the Matthews Heli-m this year. My Drenalin was 5 years old.... Not a huge change but the extra speed is nice. Shoots to 80 and 90 yards pretty comfortably.

We had a pretty descent card pull this weekend. We have a double drop 9 point on camera, one of the drops has a kicker on it. A couple 10's, an 11, and even a couple nice 8's that would be hard to pass up. Now just sit and wait for October.

Joe, I hope you see something shocking on that card this evening.
Hey Bob, a friend of mine has that software program that helps score deer from photographs. He says, if it is fairly accurate, that your huge buck has a spread of about 27" and would score about 162. Not too shabby. I would like to know how accurate that is please.
Kurt, you must have a really nice trail cam to get nice pictures like that. I want one! My cameras don't ever show more than 10 points and no drop tines.
