Congrats on a couple of prairie state bruisers. I'm leaving for Illinois in the am and will be on stand until the 17 th.
Thanks guys, I'm flying out Tuesday on US Airways and was just curious. Illinois, here we go
This is for the guys flying to their favorite hunting destination. Are any of the airlines charging oversized baggage fees for a standard size hard case that is well within the max weight?
Giant for sure, congrats to your Pops
Nothing like teaching them early
Buck fever is an all too reality that we all have dealt with. I still get it but I have learned to kinda control it by talking myself through my everyday shooting habits. The first is "anchor", the...
Thanks for all of the tips and different techniques. It will be helpful next week when I fire it up for the first time.
Good idea!! That should work.
There are a lot of wood burners in the area I hunt. This to me is a way to try and keep the deer around just a little bit longer so maybe, just maybe I can shoot another wise old buck. I do...
Hopefully I will do the same, I'll settle for a good mature though.
All of the positive comments on here are the reason I'm giving it a try. Like I said, I will post up the results next Wednesday when I come in from my hunt.
Good luck to everyone out there and...
I ordered mine Monday and it will be at my dads place Friday. Can't wait to try it out, I would rather spend less time making myself stink than spending all day trying not to stink.
This is the one I bought, I like the idea of hanging it in the tree. I look at my stand set ups and see how it will work.
That's a great idea, maybe the smoke is better for your hair. Just thinking...
Yep, can I ask why you're asking.
Well after all the reading and pondering I've decided I will try smoking my clothes this year. This goes against everything I've done in the past. I bought a bee hive smoker off of Amazon. Next...
I'm sure you meant Illinois,:wink: just kidding. Good luck
I've shot my 3 bucks on the 7th,8th, and 9th. No reason the 10th wouldn't be as good. I will be hunting the 5th - 17th.
Best of luck to everyone.
I use one and I do not think its any noisier than a back pack or fanny pack. It is super convenient and it helps to absorb the hard bark that likes to bite you in the back.
I'm from Illinois and live in AZ. I get all kinds of grief from the locals here for calling whitetails 8pts, 10pts etc. The elk and mule deer i do call by the points on each side. 6x6, or 4x4.
We are starting to see a couple of more mature bucks on their feet during daylight hours. Its getting close. Next week if the weather report is right should be a great week to be in the tree. 2069929
You are absolutely WELCOME!! You are officially addicted to mature deer.
I used them this year for elk and they performed flawlessly. The only thing is that they hit 5 inches to the left of my field points. I tried to broadhead tune and as I moved my rest my field points...
Thanks for the laugh, that is a great buck! He does look like he has been scrapping quite a bit. Congrats
What he said, the tans, and browns reflect light better than traditionally green camo. I had the lead cow bust me ranging her on my elk hunt last month, after about a 5 second stare she walked the...
Great buck, Congratulations!!
This is the only other picture, doesn't help much. I was thinking 160ish myself
The friend of mine who checks the cameras thought he would be low 170s, any educated guesses out there as to what he might score
This is the first big buck this year on my farm. Plenty of smaller bucks but this guy is a shooter for sure.
If you look you can see the ladder strap on the tree in the background. Hopefully he...
I had a complete pass through on my bull this year with the stats that are in my signature. I never did find my arrow. You're just fine.
Have fun and goodluck
