    It's about time!

    Finally! After many, many hours on a stand or just in the woods I got one! He's not a monster but he has 8 points and will taste great. I sure am happy to have one to put in the freezer. : )

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Congrats! Very nice!

    I'm still sitting in the woods while squirrels chuck nuts at my head.

    Cool!!!!!!!!!

    I went out Thanksgiving day by the house, didn't see anything, then my 16 year old says, "wow five does walking along the neighbors field" form S to N. @ around 10:45a. Was so disgusted, I didn't even bother to grab the gun.

    Went up N. Gladwin Co. for Th giving weekend and 4 of us got skunked.

    Its Muzzleloading season here now. Too busy to go today, but will Sunday morning.

    I had already given up on a buck this year and was hoping to just put a doe in the freezer. I was extra happy that it had antlers but a doe would have been good too.

    Vernon OH. I have a buddy from church that lets me hunt on his land in Ohio. I have property in PA to hunt on but this was the first buck in Ohio that wasn't on public land. Prior to this year I hunted Grand River WMA quite a bit.

    Nice! What did you use to shoot him?

    I Darn near tagged a fat doe with my police car last night. I missed her, but made a flat spot in my tires.

    If you ever "get" one that way, would it be with a 350 two-barrel?

    I used a 12 gauge. I'm glad you missed yours. How was bird season?

    Yep. I have the butcher do it though.
