The first few weeks I will hunt lower, matter of fact I will hunt the area I hunted the first time I hunted there, then after the 3rd week go back up on top for the remainder of the season.

Muzzy will be new for me. Hopefully I will have my puppy and will be training that. If I have the pup I don't know how much deer hunting will be done.

The places I hunt are mostly thick cover thats why I like the 00. This year I was really looking at where I was seeing deer and I had a lot of shots that would have been clear for a slugger! I like the idea of being able to reach out a bit further! I also do a lot of soft pushes and drives so having the 00 flying gives me more room for error on moving targets! I have two 12ga shotguns so I think I'll set one up for slugs and the other I'll use for buckshot! Then I can use the one that fits that days hunting situation!

Jersey Jim I also have 2,the 1100 is fully rifled with a cantalevered scope for slugs only, the other an 870 I put a weaver scope mount that I can use my front and back sites for either slugs or buckshot at close range. I use that one in the thick stuff. It also has choke tubes so I use either the imp. cylinder or rifled. The rifled and 00 buck is only good for 20 yds but shoots slugs fine to about 100, the imp cylinder is good with 00 buck to about 40 yds and slugs out to 75.

As far as changing anything this year, I hope to get a new bow, and am also going to try out a couple new spots and maybe pick up another climber (cheap) I have 2 now, to leave way down in the swamp lands cause it's a mother trying to get in and out all the time.

biggest change for me this year is I have a years worth of research and scouting done, so my change will be to harvest a deer this year ;)

What will I change for next year? I will hunt deer in three different states, a first for me. New Jersey, Kentucky, and Illinois are on the plate this year.
