Where you from Mike? I hope they havent completely started hardening up here in Illinois yet. I still have some nice velvet bucks that need just a little more.

I am from Mass. and I thought it was a little early too but there it was big as life. It was only one but thats how it starts. Now I'm more then ready to go and find him or his daddy or granddaddy. That is of course if I already haven't. I shot a nice 8 point in there last year and a giant 8 point in there the year before. I sure hope this trend keeps going. They are going to build houses in there some day but the envirmental folks have had it tied up for 3 years now, I hope they keep it tied up for ever.
