Just wondering how you all are doing this summer?  How are the trail cams looking?  Weather has been favorable for the most part, hopefully we don’t have any more EHD problems.  We lease land in Fulton, and it seems like we have similar activity as last year.  No dead deer at least.  7 weeks until Opening Day!

I wouldn’t shoot any does if I were you.  You may not have any deer to hunt next year.

Not planning on taking does.  Again.  Haven’t for the past two years.  Hoping for a population rebound.  But recognize that it’s going to take a few years.  Now, I just need to work with the land owner on reducing our lease fees for the next couple years!

Deer everywhere. In the woods. In the fields. In my back yard. Horn growth is exceptional this year.

I’m in Bureau county. found 11 carcasses while mushroom hunting this spring.  the locale cpo didn’t even care. do your own management. I’m not going to kill a doe for years. hope everyone around me does the same.

Not sure yet, have not started to scout a whole lot. But my spots mostly stay the same from year to year. Looking forward to getting out and shooting my bow very soon though. Not too long after that I’ll get my hunting gear out for the year and start sorting through all of it. Month off til my next fishing tourney, so it looks like it’s about time to switch gears.
