I haven't been on the forum much this fall due to the amount of time I have been spending in the world of the whitetail deer. My first hunt was an archery deer hunt in my home state of Wisconsin (USA) Two days and nine points later I was finished. The next adventure was to South Dakota (USA) where I blew an easy shot at a world class buck after stalking him in his bed. Then it was off to archery hunt Kansas (USA) where I managed to take a real old 10pt buck with 8" bases on his antlers. The last hunt was a rifle hunt back home in Wisconsin, where I once again had some luck with a long beamed 8pt. All my hunts were DIY which adds much satisfaction when things work out so well.
