    Well I was lucky enough to harvested my first buck in full velvet on Sep 9th at 8 yards and had a 60 yard recovery. Been trying hard to get a big mature 100-125 pound field dressed doe since then. Had 2 come in Friday evening but could only get a 35 yard shot and I passed on it. Anybody else filling any tags? Would love to hear some good stories.

    The deer sightings are higher than normal (so far)...been lucky and harvested two does already for the season. My first year running cameras. I am running two in some good areas in the deeper thickets. As of now, no large bucks coming in yet. The best buck seen so far is this one. He has split G1's. Will need to see him in person to know whether or not to wait. Probably should wait.

    I have shot 2 and lost 2... It might be worse than not seeing any deer yet!

    So far so good here. I have only been hunting one time this year and shot a doe with a spike growing out of the middle of her head about an inch or inch and a half long. I was only in the blind about an hour and a half.

    Not good so far. I have only been in the woods for one morning hunt. I did see a doe and two fawns so that was a highlight for sure.

    Not good for me. Only got to go twice now. First time found my stand got stolen then the second wasn't too bad just saw one deer. Oh well as long as i get to go every year its a good season.
