600 acres in Washtenaw!!!!! You lucky dog.

Yeah I am not complaining. Took only one doe last year, got swamped and screwed at work. Moved my vacation up for a bear hunt trip. The year before out there was great, took a dandy buck and a ton of does. Here is my 06 buck.



I saw a couple of small bucks last year, but opted to pass. Should be good for at least a doe for the team.

No kidding that would be a dream come true for me.
It is, 06 my friend and I alone harvested 21 animals, crop damage. 3 real nice bucks of which is the one above. He shot a 9 point that scored 147.

Yep, a mainframe 10 pnt. same one as last year I could not get a shot off on, he is larger and thicker this year. He will be tough to get, he has been around a while and has learned to negotiate even poachers. He will be a challenge.

I'm on Sabbatical! So I'll bow hunt a few weeks on our 92 acer property in Sanillac county. And then I'll go out with muzzle loader. I usually harvest 2 or 3 deer a year. Love that venison.

We do have some monster bucks on the property. But they often come out where I can't set up. I was thinking about digging a ground pit to try to ambush them. Also because of our location we usually have a 12 pt+ poached every other year as well.:rant: But this year the DNR may throw out their mechanical decoy to try to cut down on the problem.

I only entered for bow hunting last year and got a 7 or 8 pt with the bow. Then I got another buck later with the muzzle. Just can't wait to get out there and see what happening.


Soggybtmboys, you're in the Pt. Huron area aren't you?

Nope, I am Downriver...Brownstown exactly. I hunt all over, but mostly Washtenaw and Alcone Counties.

No idea on a name. I don't have that much creativity. I will give it a thought. Like your thought process on the name, would definitely work.
