I went on a drive around my country block this morning. Corn and beans are coming out so I wanted to see if there were any deer moving. I have not heard of any EHD outbreaks around Northern Knox county. I came around my first corner and there he was Mr. Big looking at me in all his glory. It just felt good to see him alive and healthy.  If I don’t harvest a deer this year oh well, I am just glad to see healthy deer.

Good to hear something positive Knox.  Not looking too bad here.  Been seeing a few out in the evenings, just glad to see they’re all still alive.  Don’t care if I shoot anything this year, but can’t wait to sit.

We’re pretty much flatlands here in the central part of the state.  Should start seeing a few more as the corn is cut.  Great weather for harvest so far.

Had 5 in my back yard last night 2 does 3 young. Won’t shoot does or young. Holding out for a big one. Was getting my license yesterday and had someone in there bragging they already killed 3 does and was in buying 3 more permits. Hmmmmmm bit my tongue hard. Sad really sad.

That’s pretty sad.  I doubt I could have kept quiet.  Those are the clowns that ruin it for everyone.

Oh man, I don’t care who the guy was. He’s planning on shooting 6 does, he would have got a piece of my mind. That guy is a prime example of our incompetent DNR not setting limits. Set a damn limit and make the fines stiff as hell.
