I have 2 areas I will be hunting this year. 1 private lease and the other public land. I have pictures of 3 bucks that made it through the winter last year and I'd be happy to take one of those. That's what I'm shootin for anyway. All 3 are bigger than what I have taken in the past so I'm tryin to do a little better also (or alot better dependin on how they grow this year ) The public ground is another story. If I can kill an ear width 8 pointer or better, then I have accomplished something. Hard hunting over there. Takin a new approach there and my expectations aren't real good, but we'll see.

This bow season I will be happy with just 1 doe. Working to many hours, am behind on alot of stuff. Will be thrilled with enough time to go to my honey hole and put a little meat up early.

I plan to pick up my tags in a few weeks. I always get 4 tags to start, 2 doe and 2 either sex. this year there will be an additional set of tags in the field in another tree. making 6 all together. 1st and 3rd weekend in Oct I am concentrating on does only. the last weekend of Oct and the first 2 weekends in Nov I will be increasing the estrus and mock scrape activity. I am hoping the elusive Buck from last season somehow survived and stayed in the area.
My goal is fill 6 tags, that done and season to spare, go get a couple more.

Last year I bagged my first deer with a bow (how exciting it was) sure it was a doe but still a trophy in my eyes maybe this year it will be a buck the prospects are looking good.
