I got my mount back

Lil John,
I'm going out to Illinois this October for my first outfitter hunt. I hope to see some bucks like that! What did he score?

I didn't put a tape to him BigE, but I wouldn't give him more than 130". Eight pointers bigger than that are few and far between.
Good luck on your Ill. hunt. Who are you going with for an outfitter, and what will you be hunting with, bow or gun?

We are going with Hadley Creek Outfitters in Pikes County. I've heard many good things about Stacey Ward and his operation. They have been around for awhile and they have taken some terrific bucks over the years. We will be bow hunting. There is a 130" minimum, but they will let a 125" go without a fine I guess. I will be bringing some extra $$ just in case. The references I spoke with all had nothing but great things to say about the accomodation, quality, & number of deer seen. Some said they saw several dozen bucks a day!
Anyway, needless to say, I'm dreaming about this October already.

Where did you go in kansas Lil'John? I've been thinking about heading there myself.

BigE..
I went out of Hanover KS. with Blue river whitetails, Dave Shotte is the owner and he did an outstanding job guiding me.
He has some very good property to hunt with lots of game on it, He wont fine you for shooting a smaller deer, as long as your happy , he is happy.
Check out his web site, and go to the photo album (rifle), you will see a pix of me, I am the only one with snow in the pic.
