    Well in Ohio, bow season came in last Saturday. I have been busy so I didn't get in the stand until yesterday. Nothing great to share yet. I watched a small buck that was too small to shoot (maybe a year and half as his antlers had just begun to fork into two points) walk around the woods in front of me for about an hour and a half. I got about as much enjoyment out of that hunt as shooting a trophy.

    Maybe with this thread we can share our stories of our time in the woods.

    Just got in the tree. Im sweating bullets. This area has been torn up by a buck in the last 2 weeks. I heard him grunt roar twice on Saturday and he pushed 3 does out. We are in pre rut if I had to guess. Does are not hot yet. I can smell them when ......fuck... Deer just ran out and I wasnt ready.

    I currently live in NW Ohio. I grew up in the Springfield area though.
