Ian, he's on a huge massive 200" buck, and I really hope that Rich, and his brother score on massive deer. If by chance Rich doesn't score on that 200" buck, I will hope I can try for him next year. That "XXX" is a massive buck also[up] I called Rich Saturday wishing him and his brother the very best, and why am I getting that buckfever feeling for him?
It's 7 pm in IOWA, no word from Rich tonight, hopefully he and his brother both scored, and they are having a nice dinner, and drinking alittle. Not to much wine there POPS, you know it makes you pee allnight
"POPS" called me this morning from his treestand, they are seeing shooters, but just out of range. He also had a 10 pointer 100" about 200lbs. under him for about 1/2 hr., he also said they just starting to rut
"POPS" called me from his treestand this morning while I was in my treestand. It's still warm out there, but he did see 17 bucks this morning, some small, he had a 140" 11 pointer under him, but the last 2 days he saw a 165" plus buck near his area, so he is holding off.
I'm not to the point where I'd p [no swearing please] on a 140" buck. Even if you see a 160 one day he may not be around the next.Its hunting , you never know!! The first quality buck that comes in range when I go to Illinois is the first one I shoot at.
It takes alot of will power to p [no swearing please] on a 140" Buck. Even in the Mid west.(For me at least.)
I hope Pops get the big boy!!
