Sorry guys been busy hunting. I missed a BIG 10 a few days ago, very depressing!!! Been seeing some big ones just can’t get close enough. Moved a stand closer last night and of course they are no shows today.

Sorry guys. Shot an 8 point last night and believe its non lethal. Searched and searched and unable to locate. Quartering away and hit too far forward and low.

Sucks ☹

Give us 15 more points!!! Buck came out of one of my lanes where all I could see was his head, I thought wow that is a nice buck for all of the 6 points I have had on camera. Came out on next lane over and realized was a newcomer 8 to the property. Super pumped as it is my biggest buck to date!

Forsure! Im headed back up this afternoon. Gonna hunt the same stand i shot the 8 a couple days ago (if wind allows, havent checked it yet). Then huron county for friday then headed back to marlette for deer camp through Tuesday. After that, back north to sanilac amd huron

26 baldies walked into the plot from every direction tonight at basically the same time (4:05pm).. im sure a good chunk of them were button heads. Waited for the majority to clear out of range and sent one flying on a tank of a doe that was half the size of some of the first few that came in.. only 2 youngsters spooked and the bucks came in searching around 5.. still playing cat and mouse with a giant that only likes to be on my property in the dark. I have the women, so maybe he'll slip up before gun season.

If not that's 7 points for the doe and 16 for the 9point on the 4th? Not a bad season for MS contest.

Hope you guys are getting good sits in with this cold

Im regretting posting this. I had the perfect setup tonight. Had a beutiful 10 point follow 2 does. Had all the time in the world. Ranged the trail at 32 yards. I was calm. Cool and collective. Mouth stopped him, let the arrow go and it sailed under him. My freaking heart sunk. Clean miss and I was right on him. Not sure wtf happened. I think im hanging the bow up and taking tomorrow off. Frustrated to say the least. Sorry guys

If you read somewhere above, In also missed a 30yd shot at a big 10. It REALLY hurts for a couple days and remember a clean miss sure beats wounding one. Just get back out there!!

The shot played in my head the last 24 hours. I know i was right on. Went out, shot the xbow at 30 yards, hitting 6" low. Somehow the scope must of got bumped..! 2nd shot, 7" low. Makes sense, i was on middle of heart and shot under it shaving white hair. Took today off to regroup. Tomorrow, ill have my 450 which is dead nuts. Hope to get another crack at him!
