    I post my pictures on most forums from imgur. Once photobucket started playing games, I found imgur and have been hosting my pictures from there. Easy to use and post pictures to/from and they let you resize right from the site.

    Went out last night with the muzzleloader to sit on the edge of a bean field. There are still some green edamame beans in the field and the deer flock to them. The wind was blowing east to west and the edge of the field is the same, the box blind I was in sits about in the middle of the field edge lengthwise. I was looking east most of the sit since I thought deer wouldn't come out into the field to my west based on the wind. As usual, deer piled into the field about 615pm and stayed out in the beans. I was watching about a dozen does within 80yds of the stand and decided to look over my shoulder off to the west. Sure enough, there was a big body about 120yds down the field edge. I glassed it and realized it was a buck. I had to open the window and take the shade down making some noise but he was content eating the beans. I decided to take him although I knew he wasn't giant, he looked even with his ears and was certainly tall enough. Squeezing off the shot, the smoke clears and I watch him run further into the beans and then circle back around and duck into the CRP. I heard a crash and then heard deer blowing, wasn't sure if i missed him and it was him that was blowing or if he was dead and other deer were blowing. Got down and got on blood pretty quickly in the beans, followed it for about 30yds and then it stopped. I decided to just go into the CRP where I thought he went and he was lying right there, 5yds into the CRP. Perfect shot, took out both lungs and the top of his heart. He's a main frame 10pt with a broken tine and a kicker at the base of his right antler. A bit more narrow than we like to take unfortunately. Fun night for sure

    It's early muzzleloader season here. Was out last night and saw a ton of deer but just after last light, had a really tall 8pt come in. He was seen at 702pm, last light was 657pm. I watched him walk off so I didn't spook him at all. Going back in this afternoon for another try. It's starting to get fun around here!

    We were just talking here about CWD or EHS having a comeback. The summer has been so dry that any low area absolutely draws in the deer. I have a ditch that runs around my property, it generally has anywhere from 2-6' of water in it. Right now, there is one spot that is wet, not even holding water but just moisture. The deer are in that damp area trying to get water everyday. One of my leases has a 5ac farm pond, I sat there Weds and watched every different type of animal visit the pond and take a drink. Thankfully, it's large enough to always have water.

    I think it is a tree limb quiver, they were the only ones who made blood trail camo at the time I bought the bow. That bow was the first one I ever color matched the accessories. Deer don't seem to care much it seems.
