  • Catching up with the Chase...Oklahoma is OK with us!!

    Travis and I have been weekend warriors for the past 4 or 5 weeks traveling to Indiana and back to Illinois for rifle and bow hunts. Unfortunately, thanks to poachers and bad luck, we weren't successful.

  • No Report from the Field...full moon & 80+ degrees

    No bucks down in Illinois this trip.....  Travis had a 150 10pt underneath his stand, but there wasn't enough camera light.. Darn!  I watched 6 bucks fight less than 20 yards away from me!!! It was so cool to see but no shooters in the group.
  • Back at it...

    Travis and I are headed back to southern Illinois and hope to have better luck than we did the first of October...opening week in IL.

  • The Eve of Opening Day of Bow Season in Alabama!!

    Just picked up our cameraguys, Tyler Krampe and Lee Bell, from the airport...
  • Double Bucks down & Leigh's 1st buck with her Mathews Passion!!

  • 24 hours later...

    No luck yesterday.  Travis has 6 bucks near him but no shooters.  I had some does, fawns and a young 10 pt in the field and the wind changed direction...  Oh well.  
  • Opening Day in Illinois

    We arrived in southern Illinois yesterday, met our cameraguy, Brady, and picked up Jeff Ensor - who'd been Elk hunting in Wyoming - at the Paducah airport at 11:30 pm.   Today, we shot our bows (gotta love the NuFletch!), viewed our sets from afar and put out Day6 Plotwatcher cameras on other prospective places.

  • Heading to Southern Illinois

    Leigh, Gray, Mar Mar and my self are getting packed up and ready to head to Simpson, IL to meet up with Jarod Jackson of Illinois Ohio Valley Trophy Hunts. He has us fired up with his sightings.  On Monday we will be meeting up with Craig Morgan. Hope we have good news to give him. Check out the picture in the link above.  I am not going to sleep a wink!
