    Can you post a pic of your target buck?

    Yes, here are a few. It's a shame I didn't get my shot yesterday, because the corn picker will probably be moving in Monday. They will finish the neighbor today if they don't break down. Who knows how he will change once the corn is picked..... I had him at 40 yards in the standing corn, but he was walking - and the vitals coming in and out of view. It was too risky for a shot with an arrow,

    Can you talk the corn pickers into leaving you a 20’-30’ strip of standing corn around the edge? Even if you have to pay them a little for the corn loss, it would probably be worth it and it just might set you up, for him to walk between the corn and tree line for a close shot..

    My uncle just texted me and said that arrived today and were already picking. Good idea though.

    This farmer almost always does beans. This is the first time in many years that I remember corn here. So, it will likely be beans now for the next several years in a row.

    I’m living vicariously through you guys until I get to crawl into my blind. Over fifty years of deer hunting and I still anticipate opening day as much as ever ! Go get ‘em !

    I’m in my blind for a crossbow hunt this evening and the 2 day ML season opens in the morning. Will hunt both. Not as confident as my other hunt. My target not on camera last time I checked, but excited anyway.

    I have turkeys in range, and crossbow Turkey season is in. As much as I would like to get one, I won’t ruin a deer hunt for a Turkey. At least it makes me feel like I had a silent entry.

    And yes, a Turkey would not be hard. My 50 yard check before leaving home.
