BoneCollector has 0 points in September and arrowdlipper only has 5 points, so neither one has been on here very much. I wouldn't be too concerned, just get out there and get after the big boy's. They will probably look in from time to time during the season and hopefully post a picture of a big boy they get.
Either way I still plan on winning this contest, season starts tomorow and I can't wait to be in the tree. Food plot is lush and full, bow is tuned and shooting straight. Only thing i need is that big boy to step out. Won't be able to sleep a wink tonight.
Sorry to report that nothing good on my first morning, although It was a very short hunt as I had to leave early to get to work. I am pretty excited about this friday though, we have a cold front moving in that will drop temps to the upper 60's and bring some rain. Best part is I have Thursday-Sunday off of work so I will be putting in some good tree time towards the end of the week. If I don't put my buck down Im sure I will get a crack at a doe to at least put some meat in the fridge.
Over the years I have seen several elk and deer hides left in the woods by hunters and I have to wonder why they do this? I fully understand and agree about getting the hide off the animal as soon as possible to cool the meat, but why not pack out the hide with you and use it? As far as I know there are no state laws that require you to take the hide home, but to me why waste such a beautiful part of the animal? Some might think they have no use for the hide or it costs too much to tan....
