Happy Flintlock Eve!

Most anticipated day of the year tommorow. My favorite by a long shot. Blinds are set and the crew is heading up tonight. 6 guys will be here with me the entire season. The big 8 is still around along with a few other legal bucks that I know of that I got on cam since rifle ended. Plenty of dmaps to fill as well. Good luck to all.

16 years and counting. Welcome to the life of a Buffalo Bills fan!

Yup, wait for this all year. Best season by far. Did some scouting this past weekend. Found a lot of deer sign in both 2F and 1B. I think we are going to have a great two weeks. I saved one doe tag and still have my buck tag. Let us know how your crew does G.H. Hunter. Good luck, good hunting!

Just got the TC Hawken 45 cal ready to go for tomorrow. Can hunt from dark till noon then family obligations till Saturday. I love deer hunting with any weapon and extend the season long as possible with muzzleloader. Last year filled my last doe tag with flinter at 530 on last day. Just perfect.
