    Yeah, things are starting to heat up here in Michigan. I saw a nice 120-130" buck, which is pretty big for my area, Sunday night at 40 yards. Unfortunately, he was hauling butt out of his bed as I was pulling my bow up in the treestand. I never saw him walking in but he must have watched me as I walked in within 40 yards from him and climbed into my stand. Then decided he was out of there. Pretty dissappointed to blow a nice buck out like that. The small ones are starting to chases this week though and taking some time off next week so hopefully the big boy will be on his feet then.

    Headed out for a week starting next weekend (Nov 5th - Nov 12th) I can't wait to get out there and try to get a good buck with my bow. Hoping it stays cooler out and the bucks are moving. Very Excited here!

    Good luck to you all. As many have indicated, things are just starting to heat up and will only get better next week. Let's see some pictures of some bucks on the ground!

    I screwed up on about a 130" 8-point this morning. This occurred in a heavily hunted area where a bow hunter is lucky to shoot any 6 or 8-point. He came in quick and so quiet I wasn't ready when he hit my shooting lane. I had to re-position my feet and get my bow between my two trees. He was at 12 yards, and sensed the movement, and slowly bounded and then walked off. Maybe I'll have another opportunity in the coming days. Good luck to everybody out there.
    Live to hunt, hunt to live.

    Its the spirit of the wild.

    Thanks Reflex, yes it is a recent kill. I got him on October 16th. I wasn't really expecting to see a deer of this caliber this early on but everyone gets lucky every now and then. He is almost 23" inside and the short tines on his right side are from a injury to his opposite rear leg. I can kill one more buck and can't wait for the weekend to get here. Good luck to you
