    Lance I only got out one day on Thanksgiving this year. I got a doe in the morning. Didnt get out in the evening.
    Some friends have taken a few bucks and does. A coworker's (that hunts with my brother in Hardy County) son shot a black bear tues or wed on their club. It dressed out at 175 lbs.

    Dropped a spike second day, my neighbor the horn hunter dropped a small 8 and gave me the meat, and my other neighbor has been wearing out the does since bow season. 4 that I have seen.

    Some of the spike is in the chili tonight!:big_smile:

    I've seen more bucks this year than ever before. The rut was awesome. I had my chance and boogered it. twice! I've had problems keeping my bow shooting right. The cables are stretching and needing replaced. But, I lost my job, moneys too tight. I just have to keep tuning it till I get the cash. I sadly shot and lost 4 does, and 1 monster buck. As far as my shooting goes, this has been the worst season ever. I have harvested 5 does so far though. had 2 of them in a chest freezer with about half a cow. While scrambling to tune and target my bow one night before a hunt in the a.m. I put a hole in it and pffffffttt. out came all the refrigerant. Now I dont even have a freezer to use. LOL. I'll get it together hopefully.......
