So here's mine...in order of seasons

Fill my Elk archery tag with any Elk
Shoot at least a P & Y caliber whitetail buck
Help my son kill a nicer buck than he did last year.
Shoot a Turkey with my bow
Shoot something other than an Eastern Turkey

Above would be my first... cause I haven't taken anything with a bow.

Well, my goals are a little bit lower this year I spose. My 4th child should be arrving right around the 1st of October so hunting during the month or so after that could be extremely limited.

I don't forsee me getting to go on much in the weeks leading up to the birth to Bowling Green where I normally hunt. Luckily I have at least one and maybe a second spot right here in ol St. Charles county where I should be able to sneak out and stick one. Since I got a new bow I really just want to take one or two deer with it. They could both be does and I would be just tickled pink.

I hope to get my oldest son out with me some more just as a tag along, and dunno if he will be ready to hunt this fall, if not they certainly as a prep for next gun season.

This will be my younger (adopted) brother's first season and I get to take him out during youth season...SO, my first goal is to get him ADDICTED to deer hunting!

Second goal is to harvest a wallhanger with my bow (and actually hang him up). I have shot a couple bucks that I would categorize as a "wallhanger"...but have never had the funds to actually hang them.

Third goal would be to harvest a deer on the land that I was granted access to hunt on, be it by bow or gun.

And last goal is to harvest a Turk with my bow.

Good Luck to you all this Fall!!!!:wave:

Help Baby Booches get another deer.

Help Little Booches get another deer.

Take my first deer with a bow (I've decided not to be so picky - last year I held out for a trophy, and didn't get a shot - this year - patience my a**, I'm gonna kill something)

my main goal is to get out, last fall I spent my time in bagdad so anytime now is a blessing:cheers:
but my secondary goals are
1. my oldest boy wants to hunt deer and he has a .243 now so hopefully I can get him a deer.
2. run a small trapline all season long and run a large trapline for 1-2 weeks straight (if I can get leave)

well my goal is to try be in the woods as often as possible, even though i didnt kill a deer with my bow last year. I have a great time watching the tree rats, and the 2 gray fox i saw twice that sayed around looking in every log stump or hollow tree, never heard one till then they make a funny sound. saw 2 bobcats but could never get a shot and yes i did see a few whitetails but never had a good clear close shot. So if work and the wife see fit to let me go, my goal is just to get out and see what god has so beautifully laid out for us to enjoy.
