The moisture was really good until july and after that it has been dry, but I think they got the nutrition they needed early enough to have good growth, I used to work with my dad on a ranch in N.central nebraska but now I work as a welder so I don't see a whole lot but he told me just the other day he seen 8 bucks, none was under a 4 point not including brow tines and the biggest was a 170 class deer! big for my area and 2 others were 150 to 160 class and the others were young bucks with good potential! so hopefully I will have some good hunting in the years to come.
I learned this the hard way last year. If you're hunting in an area with lots of bear activity, it's a great idea to stash your food and water up in a tree. I like to wrap everything in a tarp and tie it between two trees. Don't just tie it up in one tree but tie it in between two trees at least 15 feet in the air. I thought I had my backpacking camp's food supply stashed pretty well last year. I returned to camp during the first weekend of archery to find all my food destroyed. Make sure...
