Ric.. Chad probably ate all his already... On my way home from Illinois... Spot I was originally going to put Chad was so freaking thick you could not drive quad through... So did not really hang a stand, just to hang a stand which he would have never found as it was a jungle, I had to crawl in some spots... So he can start out on 80 acres that's up the road... I have 2 stands there for him... Only cam I had out from March took 3000 pics and still had 97 % battery life... 2 decent bucks were on it. Pis were taken in early July so still had a month to grow...

Pics of stands Chad can start with... One is a ladder stand on an oak ridge.. The other is a stand guy shot a decent buck out of last year.. This stand has an area by it that had these 10 foot reeds growing by it.. Last year they died off.. This year they are back.. Opened up a trail with quad...

Just got back from another whirlwind trip to Illinois... 18 hours Thurs. and another 18 hours today... Saw a lot of deer in fields and crossing the road's.. What was amazing is the amount of fawns that there are this year... Saw 2 with triplets and I had a doe with triplets on my cam... Normally we don't even see fawns in the fall and have commented on it... This trip seems every doe had fawns... Coyotes go on vacation or something?? Got all our stands hung and shooting lanes trimmed out and got Chad set up with 2 stands to start with... Got all bit up by F-ing chiggers... Little bastards...
