Got daughter to help me work on an old logging trail food plot. PH I'm sure is off with limited sun. Got some green growth and deer seem to like it. All times of the day. Put up new blind I ordered at one end. Perfect for the normal wind there. 50 yard max shot for her. So my ultimate goal is for her to get one on the ground this year. Cmon youth hunt ! Also picked up this Kenai holster for the .44. A few adjustments and it'll ride higher and sit center chest. Hope to shoot my second deer this year with the hand cannon.

Another go at a clover plot this year better results. Hope to see more shooters this year than last. Grouping with the bow 20-30 yards out was much better all summer and daughter had fun with it to.

Shoulder surgery in May to be able to hunt the bow opener. Looks like I will make it!

 Lots of watching my 13 y.o. grandson shoot his bow over the summer. Hoping to get his first deer this year. After football and travel baseball seasons are over.

New hunting rifle for the firearms season.  Planning to make some memories with it, before handing it down, when my hunting days are done.

New blinds built, old ones redone.

Look forward to the quiet time in the woods.  And some snow!

      Wondering if anyone has an extra DMP tag for 4W. 
      Long shot I know and would be happy to get a 1C to exchange. Or trade my turkey tag. Wasn't sure where I would be hunting and never got a deer yet.

      Hello to all my fellow bow hunters! Here's a question for you, if you had the chance to hunt and win $50,000, would you do it? Well your chance has come! It's the Bone Collector North American Whitetail Championship! The biggest and most exciting deer hunting tournament that's ever hit the whitetail woods! Here's how it works, throughout the USA and Canada, there's 14 different regions, New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey would be considered as Region 1, the bow hunter that harvests the largest P&Y scoring buck in he or she's region will qualify for a championship hunt in the land of Giants, (KANSAS) at Wicked Outfitters for a chance to win $50,000!!  You may ask, is there an entry fee? Yes, there is a $300 entry fee, but here's the cool part, when you sign up, the crew at the championship will send you a gear package in the mail with over $400 worth of hunting gear! You will also have your name put in for hunt give away drawings and product give a ways! How cool is that!? You might be thinking to yourself, I don't have a big enough buck to hunt that i can win anything with. NOT the case, if you harvest a buck and enter it into the tournament, you will be put in for another drawing for the Kansas HUNT! How do you sign up? Simply go to www.nawtc.com fill out the entry form that's required for you to sign up, and your ready to go!
