    Hey fellas,
    Looking forward to the season this year. In the past I have always liked to keep a thread going just between our team. This way we can update one another throughout the year.

    To start I have a few questions for us:
    -Where will you be hunting this year?
    -What methods will you be hunting with?
    -When will you start hunting?

    twn417:
    I will be hunting in Illinois and Iowa this year. I'll be bow hunting and muzzleloading hunting in each and season opens October 1 for us.

    I started last week in this blazing heat,if I had done a little mowing I prolly would have been posting about 20-22 points with the horizontal bow.
    I only hunt my place with all legal means archery, rifle and alternative weapons.

    hey guys...ill be hunting the following in the following ways:
    Mississippi- home state rifle and archery
    Illinois-Archery already been once to pike co and have a return trip set..... close on some bruisers opening week but could not seal the deal
    kentucky- Rifle season mid november
    Missouri- already went opening week, returning for a pre rut/rut archery halloween weekend, firearms season and maybe another trip depending on tags

    been lucky enough to tally most points in contest as an individual two years running. MS helps alot in that due to such a long firearm season but i should be good for 3 bucks and a full amount of ladies lol should be able to tally several does with archery

    good luck to all i cant wait to see how everyone does this year

    I shot a cull here in ms friday evening. He was only a 5point 3.5 year old. He had been shot as a yearling and i have had pics of him for two years.... the first the leg was hanging and last year it had healed. I will wait to post as im sure with so many tags left i will kill some better bucks but either way we are 10 points pending right now.

    Got this 8 this morning in Missouri in my lease. Had a bigger shooter Friday evening at 40 and no shot before he got my wind. This one didn’t stand a chance this morning 18 yards and he ran 40, laid down, like he was never hit and that’s all she wrote. Got Missouri and Kentucky back with rifle coming up. Hope you guys are having some luck. Wishing you all a good season!
