Getting Pumped!

Less than eight weeks for bow season and I can’t wait! Even closer yet is a hunt I have scheduled in early September in North Dakota that I’m not sure I can make. Late September I’ll be in Kansas and I’m really looking forward to that hunt! I’ve always wanted to hunt Kansas and now it looks like I will be. I’ve got several bruisers on trail cameras and have already got my tags for 2 different zones there. Kansas will be my first ever video hunt. I’ll be joining two other guys who film whitetail hunts, so hopefully I’ll get some action. I’m going to hunt from the ground there unless some unforeseen circumstances dictate otherwise. If I am lucky enough to harvest a big buck, I’ll do some video work for the other guys. Funny thing, at these places, the doe/buck ratios are in check, so I won’t need to pop a doe unless I want to. Normally, I would want to do my part in keeping things in check where I hunt but it seems to be in balance there. Back in Illinois, I’ll be hunting two known bruisers and several does. I’m itching real bad to hunt this new place I picked up here in Illinois!

On another note, I just finished writing chapter 5 out of 14 in my new book this week. I don’t think I’ll ever get it finished! Man, that’s a lot of work, especially if you have a lot to talk about. Next comes all of the pictures. I wish I knew how to draw good as that would save a bunch of time. Oh well, maybe by next year I’ll have it finished???

Below are some pictures that Paul Rients sent me of a fawn and a turkey! Enjoy! Hopefully, I’ll have some more from my cameras later this week.
