http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2405/#When:03:47:09Z<p>Wondering here in Central Illinois who I can have score a very Unique Non-Typical I shot last year during Muzzleloader season. <br />

Thanks Scott</p>2014-11-19T03:47:09+00:00What should I have done?
http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2404/#When:23:13:07Z<p>I am a hard core duck hunter, only a casual shotgun deer hunter.<br />
Yesterday, driving back from a successful duck hunt out of Blandings, a gut shot buck crossed the road in front of me. He was moving very slow and could barely get out of the ditch on the other side.<br />
I stopped the truck and hollered for hunter so he would know where his buck went<br />
After thinking more, I’m now worried I pushed the deer even farther with the truck stopping and the yelling.<br />
i don’t keep anything in the truck to mark a trail for the hunter - sat and thought about that for a bit<br />
What should I have done?</p>2014-11-16T23:13:07+00:00Anyone having any luck are you seeing deer?
http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2403/#When:16:00:13Z<p>Fresh off a vacation and totally speechless on what I saw last week which was absolutely nothing. Any good news out there other than a new Governor? Charlie Alsheimer prediction best week to be in the stand was last week. Maybe he meant anywhere but Illinois.</p>2014-11-16T16:00:13+00:00wow, heck of a year so far
http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2402/#When:16:14:15Z<p>since the opening of public land next to where I hunt was opened for hunting it has been miserable for us. stolen deer stands, stolen camera. watched a trespasser climb in my favorite stand I saved for rut and vacation, and now 1 of landowners calves shot in neck with arrow dangling. if you hunt near unhunted public land and a hunting organization wants it to be opened for more hunter access tell them to shut the **** up!</p>2014-11-15T16:14:15+00:00RACK QUESTION
http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2401/#When:18:59:43Z<p>I think most of us will agree that if a buck gets hurt that it will somehow affect his rack growth the following year.</p>
<p>One of my friends that farms and I hunt his property threw this at me one Friday night while consuming adult beverages not to long ago. He said he had heard it for years and I had never heard of it before. He stated that if a buck breaks of a horn or damages his rack some how (no physical damage to the body) that it will affect its growth, the rack, every year after that. I asked if this was while the rack was growing and still in velvet and he said no at anytime.</p>
<p>I don’t see how this would, but what are others thought on this. Good question for the trail cam users that follow certain deer for several years and may have noticed this!</p>2014-11-13T18:59:43+00:00started antler hunting lab for sale

http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2399/#When:14:57:33Z<p>I have not seen a deer in 4 days of hunting. I have hunted from dawn till dusk. It’s like they have a secret underground bunker they go to. It must be this stupid full moon. They must feed and frolic all night and hit the underground hangout just before dawn. <img src="http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/images/smileys/smile.gif" width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />. I know they are around I had 3 mature bucks in 45 minutes between 40 and 60 yards of me last week. Then poof !!! gone.</p>2014-11-07T14:57:33+00:00Quinn on the way out!!!
