I am so glad hunting season has started here in Michigan. Below is a pic of my first bow kill of 2012

That looks like a solid 140's class buck in the pic. Good shoot. I leave for Illinois Nov 6 in search of big ones. The PA weather is still warm here and only seeing young bucks now.

Nice buck.


Illinois prime time bowhunting traditionally is the last week of Oct. and the first two weeks of Nov. When I did that sort of thing that was vacation time.

You're lucky, Michael. My hunting grounds in Branch County has been hit pretty hard by the EHD virus. No one's been seeing much of anything this season.

The tines on that rack are huge, congrats on a fine shot, I don't know what the season limit is on deer in your area but I wish you continued success. Thanks for sharing tour experience.
cheers

Just read this concerning EHD... looks like after the first frost prospects look much better. But until that frost, I don't care what the "experts" say, I ain't eating them!

BriarBrad, just curious as to which county you will be headed to here in IL?
