    Through hard work and dilligent planning I have been able to step away from work for the next 2 weeks... Planning to hunt morning and evening with a few all day sits including today untill I get it done. I have some really good deer on camera on 2 different farms inluding 3 Booners. It's been 3 years since I have taken a buck, and it certainly is not due to lack of seat time. I try an follow the 140" rule... I'm hoping this year that one gets my heart pumping because that is about all it's going to take! I'm ready to draw BLOOD!
    I though I would start a thread and give updates and pics as I go. Hopefully this provides some entertainment for the guys stuck at work...

    Sitting in a little draw that bucks travel to scent check a nearby bedding area (or that's what I tell myself anyway...)

    Keep updates coming. I tell myself a lot of that stuff too. Self is wrong a lot, but sometimes he gets it right! Good luck !

    If these are farms that you are trying to manage, shooting for a set score will bite you. I did that for a while, ended up having a bunch of older 130-140" 8 points running everything else off.

    The lack of wind is killing me down in this draw... Its swirling everywhere. I had a doe blow from 150 yards or so somewhere behind me. A squirrel building a nest beside me has provided some much needed entertainment though

    In boone co...., I was planning on sitting here all day. I have alot of mid day shooter activity. The geniuses at the weather channel say the wind is supposed to pick up... So I'll put my faith in them once again.... Cant kill 'em from the couch

    Eww no way! Lol I'm self employed and have been planning this all year... I actually plan to do this every year but it rarely works out... This year the stars aligned and I was able to schedule a few big jobs correctly to pull it off.

    Really slow since the buck this morning....
