    anyone been doing any good.. i didn't go yet might go do the late riffle or muzzle loader. post up some photos don't care if its the big buck or just a doe. my borther took a nice 10 point opening day then a nice looking 6 point his boy shot on sunday of the first weekend. you'd be amazed what a 500 s&w does to a deer

    no pics but I took my nephew out the second day of rifle season,he shot once and dropped a little spike buck and the doe that was standing behind him,so those tags got filled,not doing any more till muzzleloader season. the .308 put both deer down hard where they stood,he was kinda mad he had a youth permit with a bonus tag and wanted something with antlers being it was his first hunt,but we'll get him going again for the smokepole season.

    I've seen about a dozen photos of some 7x7, 6x5, 5x5, mule deers out here. I don't care what anyone says but I would hunt a mule deer before anything else. If I could hunt that is.

    Muley's are some BIG deer.

    Yes it is! I just started using a trail cam this year and can't believe the pics I have so far. It's really cool seeing the different deer on the property I hunt. At least it gives me a better idea what I might be dealing with. So far I haven't got the opportunity to harvest a deer yet. The corn harvest has been set back for weeks, due to wet conditions. The corn is still in the field where I hunt, but hoping soon, it will be cut. Went hunting last night and seen 1 Fork-Horn buck at dark and got drawn on a coyote, before he pinned me in the tree. Yes, coyotes are sly critters and are very hard to kill with a bow. Never shot one before with a bow. Be a true trophy in itself!! Hoping to connect on a nice buck or doe here soon. Thinking the late season shows promise this year.

    Trail cam used: Cuddeback Capture 3.0 incadescent flash

    Yeah! Did my homework on what kind of trail cam to purchase and found the Cuddeback was user friendly and offers great pics. Got it for a birthday present and I'm overjoyed at the pics I'm getting with it. Hoping know one rips mine off. Thankfully, the area I hunt is in the sticks somewhat and receives little to no hunting pressure at all. Looking at the place you wouldn't believe there's that many deer in there. Sparse cover, but has all the ammentites a deer could ask for. Food, water and CRP grass for cover and some tree cover. Luckily my relatives own the land!!
