Looks like a shooter JIM. Didn't know you are allowed to shoot so many deer. Here in Illinois, only 2 bucks, how many does, I'm not sure. If I get 2 bucks, thats fine with me. Thats plenty of meat. Some states are at 1 buck and some amount of does. Ohio is such a state and are harvesting more and more record trophy deer. I feel, here in Ill. it should also be 1 buck, and some amount of does. No antler restictions, you take the trophy you want, and some does for more meat. That second buck you could have shot gets a chance to get bigger, or someone else gets his trophy buck, and with the taking of does, comes herd control. A certain percentage of hunters, including me will shoot 2 bucks and no does. But in my areas I would like to see more does. We have a coyote problem and it's takeing a toll on our fawns. Last season and the one before, I never saw a fawn, or got any trailcam pics of one. Not good. In the last 4 years I've shot three coyotes, but not enough. Sometimes I see 4&5 in a pack. I encouage some of the guys I hunt with to pick off a few, but they are not easy to kill. When they are hanging around,I do not see any deer. Although, that 10pt on camera was walking up to a coyote that I was trying to get a shot at. When that buck walked in, that changed my plans. And he was deffinetly not affraid of the coyote. Got to end this, its late. I get started and don't want to quit. How does one go about starting a "thread", and don't say with a needle.
