illinois from the tree!

Thread starter #1
Its that time again. We are rolling through TN right now. Should be there around lunch and maybe just maybe in a tree this eve although its raining up there right now.

This year me, bubbabuck and May are joined by qturn and later in the week jeff phillips and redtail. We are here bow hunting till next friday and then 3 days of smokepoles! We are hunting with Joe and Dean at Rivers Bend Trophy Outfitters again will be filming for Southern Backwoods Adventures.

The weather and the rut should be PERFECT!!! Calling for 20's and 40's everyday and the bucks are chasing right now!

Keep checking back here and we will give updates in real time straight from the tree. Later

Well we are here at the lodge now. Raining pretty good. When we got here we rode one of the farms and saw a few does and a small spike. There were several trees that had just been slap torn up with rubs!! Not a half a mile from the lodge we saw a solid white doe in a pasture. I got a picture of her as she was running away. If it turned out decent I'll try to get the pic up later. Should be in the 20s here in the morning. There'll be eight of us here at the lodge. There is a deer in the cooler now that should go 150.

Stay tuned!!
