Well, I did not get a deer in Illinois.[:(] I hunted one deer about a one sixty class[:p] for about 4 days. the closest I got was sixty yards, My Brother however arrowed a nice 10 pointer 280 lbs about 130 class.Could have got a lot of regular racks but I was holding out for somthing bigger in any event the country was beautiful the hotel was great made a lot of friends and had a good vaca. Now time to meat hunt. Oh yea Taco never called[B)]

    Taco was sick. I was hot on a big buck, ended up settling for a big doe--will post pics when I get them developed. 60 yards? Didn't you have any heat-seekers? Gramps always told me to put 'er on automatic!!! But, good to hear your back safe & sound, even if you didn't get anything.

    Well, you go for the hunt, not for the kill, and I hope you had a fun one.

    On a different note, My buddy shot a 13 point last night w/ a shotgun. It was a BIG DUDE!!!

    I'll post pics as soon as I get them developed and scanned.

    Yea,Ben it was a heart breaker but also a great expierence. Had a great time. Is taco Ok did he miss his vaca. I will see susp for posting pix I have a few. Beleive me I thought about letting an arrow fly then came to my senses. I most likely would have wounded or missed him . I'll get him next year. I know the deer is pretty happy.

    Hey Buckey glad to see ya back, and in answer to your question yes I went hunting but shouldn't have because my bronchitis flared up again. I'm hearing about it from the woman to. On a good note tho I got to meet bang and did kill a nice 8 pt. Just paying for it now with all the coughing and abuse from those who say they love me[B)] BTW, did you ever get my e-mail?

    Better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool!!

    Good to see your back Buckey, sorry about the deer. I haven't killed one yet if that helps any. [;)]

    Got bunches of new people floating around here, it's pretty cool.
    Bring on the pics whenever you want, email me and I'll give you my home e-mail to.

    I know how that goes. Finally see a decent buck, a real nice 12, this past Sunday evening and he won't come closer than 50 yards. He wanted to it seemed like, but it was like he knew something was up. I had two does bedded around my stand and he wanted to be near them but seemed like he knew he'd get plucked if he stepped in closer. [:D]

    Like they say gogolen it's not the kill it's the thrill if the chase. I had a great time. My buddys that hunt here in R.I. said the deer are really moving[:p] so I figure I can get one thanksgiving morning or the next day. after that gun season.I havent decided if I will gun hunt I usually won,t pick up a gun till I have gotten one with the bow first ,Just stubbon I guess[:D]

    Well good luck to you over this thanksgiving holiday, I would pick up the gun if not for anything else but to fill the freezer. I had good luck on opening morning for rifle season I shot a decent 8 point, I am headed back to northern MI this weekend in an attempt to fill the rest of my tags, and the freezer in the process.
