Who's hunting this year? Here's the thread for all things 2018. Where are you hunting? New gear? Using bait? What's you hunting with, out of, etc?

My setup for the first 5 weeks. Then I'll take my 50cal CVA out for a week. Then it's my mossburg 535 slugster or my 7.62x39 for the rest of the season. I'm getting it in this year.

You better not get a goliath then because you will sleep through all the deer encounters. I was 295ish pounds last year and it was like sitting on the couch. I got lucky. I got mine for 275 bucks delivered when sportsman guide was running a sale.

I might drag out the Mathews Outback once or twice early season. Then 300 BLK suppressed with Gorilla Silverback ammo.

I bought it because the weight limit was 300 on my viper. The viper was pretty awesome but the goliath was even better. I've stayed in the stand for up to 8 hours without a problem.
I need to look at my old blind and see what kind of shape it's in. I haven't used it in about 6 years. You using bait this year?
