I put in hundreds of hours shed hunting, scouting, planning, reading, patterning the deer i hunt Ill watch a deer for months and plan 3 days to hunt him. I hope this season will be another successful year for everyone. I try to not shoot anything under 3.5 yrs old and i generally wont hunt anything smaller then an 8. I have a 140 (im hoping he grows into the 150's come September) class 8 point i named Rudy already on the hit list year but i have been watching him for 3 years now. we have a little footage of him and a crappy set of pictures pulled off of a video. This year he will be 5.5 years old and is PERFECT as far as tine length and symmetry is concerned.
I hunt with 2 other guys that are pretty serious hunters as well and we all try and keep one another's hopes up when it seems hopeless but currently everyone of us have a deer "picked out" so to speak for this season...
Rudy, James Brown, and Freddy Krueger are there names... We name them instead of saying "the big 8, the wide 12, etc..."
DeerCamp - I am hoping to learn more and more from everyone. It's almost everyday I learn, think about, or re-think something I thought!!
Thanks again for the welcomes and Good luck to everyone on your up coming season!!
