Thanks Jen.Hang with it.Sometimes it takes awhile but when it does happen ,it then comes like gang busters.I look at all my outings as sucessful anymore each hawk,squirrel,etc has its own spot in my memory log.

Congrats to the CSG and Danny you have the right philosophy-every day in the woods is a gift many miss. Good luck on the rest of the season.

I'm happy for all of you guys.  Bravo!  After hunting on Saturday evening (where I was busted, and so was Jen)... we were reduced to eating chicken at Hardees.   So sad.  So sad.

I'm finally getting to chime in after 3 days of catching up at work.

I do not have any "hero" pictures, simply because I didn't have any chances on this trip.  HOWEVER, I had a blast, as usual.  3 days and 4 nights in the hills of Madison County can really help you relax.  

I did have a really nice 8 pointer inside 35 yards the first morning, but as you all know, that won't cut it in the traditional world.

Congrats to both Jeff and Danny.  They were nice enough to handle all the dragging and cutting while I was up on the mountain waiting for a bear that never showed.

Lord willing, we'll all be back in Madison again next year for the annual gathering.

you Coolspring boys are making it happen. Not much for me, one doe. Chad and I are heading to Ohio in two weeks. Wish us luck. Victor

Got a nice doe this evening.  I was beginning to wonder if/when things would come together.  

About a 10 yard shot and a 30 yard recovery.  

Maybe one of the Cool Springs Gang will post a picture for me????

I managed to get 3 does in the freezer before I had to go back to work (Afghanistan) for the rest of the year.It was a short season for me but a pretty good one considering.

Good luck to everyone for the rest of the year.

Killed a 6 pt scrub and the short story is over in the highlights forum. Not much rack but big bodied older deer. Glad to take the first shot this fall.

Good one Tom. Nothing like getting it done before a storm. Storms don't seem so bad when there is meat on the pole.

So, hunted for a bit Saturday morning; had to bug out at 7:45 to get up the house to get Justin ready for his soccer game.  As I'm putting my stuff in the truck, I look across the field to see the fella I posted on pg 1 starting to cross the cornfield.  Watched him travel on a beeline down to the corner, literally 7-8 yards from where I had been sitting 10 minutes before., and then to further mock me, he stood there loitering for 10 more minutes before sauntering back across the field.  I think he has Justin's soccer schedule on his Blackberry.....and he's much prettier in broad daylight.
Congrats to the CSG and everyone else; enjoying this thread immensely.
