    Returned recently from our place in Missouri. Took me a while to edit trail cam pics from 9 cams that ran for about a month. The memory cards were full on some and others (bigger GB cards) were still running. Well, this was the best first pull we've ever had on the cams. Looks like it's going to be a target rich bow season ahead. Here's a few to check out. This wide 10 point will be my main target buck for this season. Easy to see why! This freak of nature is hanging around the area the wide 10 roams. He's a regular too. I have so many pics of him you could watch him grow his antlers through pics. This nice 11 point wouldn't get a pass but for now, he's hanging around another area. I may have to see this odd NT buck in hard horn to figure him out. A lot going on in his rack. Nice typical 10 here. Best buck (so far) with less than 10 points...a big 9 That's enough for now. I'm heading back to check the cams during the Labor Day holiday period (10 running now). Hope to have updates and some new nice ones that haven't shown up yet. I'm still looking for some big ones that survived last year. Fingers crossed they show up! I also have some treestand work left to do, including hanging another stand in the wide 10's turf.

    I've been a member of this forum since the early 2000s. I took a few years off hunting with a bow and arrow. Frankly public land in Indiana got boring and the drive became too arduous and time consuming. I also worked basically 6-7 days per week for the past 5 years. However, the compulsion has returned. I was able to shotgun hunt the last 2 years and finally got another bow (Hoyt) and have been practicing 3-4 days per week. I have been super excited to get back to bow hunting and there is only 18 days left before I hide behind my secret tree 30 feet from a backroad where I know 4 or 5 does will cross the street and walk within 15 meters of me (at least on the first day). Been motivated for months and now I'm just getting plain antsy. Yay 2017!!!

    Congrats on the doe! I've been shooting the kids crossbow a little bit lately. Now that it's legal in Illinois all through archery season I might take it to the woods for a few hunts.

    lee lakosky told me it took him 7 years to get his first bow buck. his standards were high then but still that's a boat load of patience.
