Finally Getting Going!!!!!

I have gotten off to a late start this year. However, in the last two weeks I have readied 7 stands, got my cameras out and already have some nice pics of a couple decent bucks. Also this year I am seeing alot of non typical growth in the 1 1/2 year olds. Should be seeing some real beasts from these youngens in a few years. I still have 3 more stands to put up and one stand to move. I may be getting permission on a new property also. If I get in there I will be hanging at least one stand there. I am also going to put in a small fall food plot this year. I have seen alot of great sign. Heavy trail usage, lots of green vegetation this year along with the great ag crops and good water supply I think it will be a great year.

That's great news MOTF!  I

That's great news MOTF!  I just finished trimming around 4 stands.  I have 4 more to trim around and then clear shooting lanes and check straps on all - plus put new seats on 2.  So i too am behind.  Plan is to get all of that done this week. 

Did you do any mineral licks this year?  How did your experiment with Monster Raxx go?  I did 3 lick sites with bulk minerals/salts this year plus 3 clover food plots.

Also - good to hear from you on this web site.

I still have 2 stands to put

I still have 2 stands to put up and 1 more to move. If I get in on the other property I will put one stand there too. I'm hoping to take most of the month of September and just practice shooting and checking camera's every so often.
