ANY bird coming at me - forget it!!!! I actually use to hunt doves like pheasants. It was a good workout for me and my dog AND I could actually hit them if they're going away!

Deer hunting for me in Wisconsin. I'm taking off here around noonish. Have fun and we'll have to compare stories when I get back. Did you ever get that pic I sent of that 17 point a friend of mine got with a bow last week??? I KNOW you saw the high and wide mainframe 8 I'm hoping to see tomorrow morning on my buddies property But, that 17 was an Illinois buck and is off the charts!!!!

Well, I know I missed you Marty, but will keep the fingers cross for you, and hope you have a safe and successful hunt. Yes, saw both deer you sent.

Jim, neither of us got a deer this year. I think this is the first year ever for BOTH of us to come back with tag soup - lol! Earn-a-buck has been in full force for about 7-8 years now where we hunt in Wisconsin. Hate it. We're seeing LOTS of bucks, but very few does. I had a doe and her two fawns run up on me from behind and stopped at about 7 yards from me. 30 minutes later they all backed out the way they came in, no shot. Mentally, holding still THAT long and not being able to see what they were was one of the toughest things I've done! Oh, we DID almost catch that Rockford TORNADO coming home. It crossed I-90 right in front of us at about 100 yards. It was COOL, but SCAREY as heck!!!

That's part of hunting Marty, sometimes things just don't come together. I am sure you still enjoyed every moment of your time in stand. I know I always do.

It is a great time to reflect, and to realize the beauty nature shares with us! I am happy to see deer, even if I don't get a shot. They are amazing creatures, and I enjoy watching as much as shooting!

Wow, that storm sounded like it could have done far more damage than it did!

Glad to hear you had a safe trip and are back home intact. The important pert of the trip, right? Have a great holiday Marty!
